"Pictures" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/19/11
 

The pictures below are of Captain Steele Park and Captain Chris Dew's Gulf Stream trip today with Steve Kinner, Kees Punter and Megan Tereshkl all from Annedale, Va.  No doubt about it our Gulf Stream charters for the past three days have been on fire!

Captain Steele will fill in the blanks, yes this sounds corny, but when he and Capt. Dew finish cleaning all the fish they caught, and get the boat ready for tomorrow's charter.

"House Bill" | Get Busy | 04/19/11
 

For those who are concerned about the massive kill of striped bass that happened not long ago and  the number of red drum taken by nets in shore,  this link ought to be of interest and worth a read.

"Very Near Shore" | Get Busy | 04/19/11
 

For those who like to fish for and eat spanish mackerel, our Captains fishing very short trips have been getting into the spanish and blues as recent as today.

On another note...if you need your cleaning knives sharpened call Jimmy Watson at 910-754-6773.  He'll suprise you with how quickly he can have them done, the low cost and the quality of his work.  I have seen split a hair with a knife he sharpened...for real!

""A Drag Screaming Smile"" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/18/11
 

Greg Dawson and his 5 year-old daughter Shannon joined me on a half day inshore trip this morning. We headed for several deep holes looking for some spot, croaker, whiting, and anything that would eat action. A few pinfish and a spot were willing to bite a hook. We headed for the flooded grass flats looking for some movement, but did not see much action there either. Tide finally turned around and started to pull out. Gregg and I started drifting out of the creeks working the banks carefully. I got the bite and the drag started screaming! I called for Shannon, but she saw the bend in the rod and heard the drag screaming. She was very hesitate in taking over, so I told Dad to get on the rod! Gregg landed a nice 25" redfish for us. Of course, Shannon was very eager to pull in the next one. We worked the area over pretty hard looking for one more for Shannon. Thump! There he is! Shannon jumped on the rod and did a fine job at angling a nice 17" redfish to the boat. We made a few more cast, but Mom was back at the dock waiting for us. Not a bad way to end a fishing trip though. I love it! See ya on the water!

"Jigging School Graduates" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 04/18/11
 

Myself and Capt. Chris Dew(aka OC) had the privilage of taking a great group of guys offshore fishing yesterday as a culmination of our first Vertical Jigging School.  Accompany me were Jim Almond, Ben Rucker, Kendal Hendrick and Kevin Walter.  We spent Saturday evening going over some of the details of vertical jigging including knots, leaders, tackle and technique.  We met at the "liars lounge" here at the OIFC so we were exposed to the tremendous wind accompaning the storms that came through Saturday afternoon.  The number one thing on everyones mind was, are we going to be able to go, including myself... We ajurned the class at around 8 with a plan to tentatively leave around 8am the next morning.  When I went to bed around 11pm, it was still blowing 35kts and the seas were 11 ft every 6 seconds at the tower.  I assumed there was no way it was going to lay down in time, boy was I wrong.  When I arrived at the OIFC in the morning, the seas were falling almost exponentially.  We made the decision to go.  Seas offshore still had some roll to them but were VERY comfortable all day.  We fished Gene's ledge first and didn't have much action so it was on to the Steeples.  When we got to the steeples, we found great bottom fishing but the tuna were attempting to elude us.  Finally, while Ben was working the Roscoe jig up from the depths using perfect High Speed Jigging technique, his line came tight with a nice Blackfin.  There were cheers all around with thoughts of Sushi on the dinner table.  We caught a variety of fish, including, Amberjacks, Grouper, Tuna, Bonita and even Lizard fish... Go Figure. On the ride home at 30kts, the whole group was sound asleep.  Everyone agreed that it was a very fun trip and they learned a lot of valuable information.  Capt. Rickey is going to post pics from the trip asap.  We have another school scheduled for the first of may.  2 spots left.  Call 910.575.3474 to book your spot.

"today's stream report" | Real-Time Update | 04/18/11
 

Fished the stream today with Jim Steed of Raleigh, Rob Carmichael and son T ucker Carmichael of Tyngsboro, Mass. I ran back down to the scarp to try t o focus on the blackfin we had found there a few days earlier. The ocean wa s the flattest it's been this season, but as normal I couldn't locate the bl ackfin; I had good bait marks bit they either weren't there or the full moon had it messed up? Anyway, we started off jigging and got warmed up with a barrage of aj's. We then got to trolling and soon boated a mahi. More acti on came from aj's taking our trolled baits, cudas, another Maui and a small wahoo. After 12:30pm it died. The water was slick and the fish were just not biting. We decided to go back to jigging and in between aj's, Rob caught a monster gag grouper, 30lbs+. Man that stunk to send that fish back! Anyway, the action was not terrible but the trolling bite was lacking without Blackfin. The weather was the best part of the day. Steele will be heading to the stream tomorrow. He'll probably run to the east so we'll have another report. Stay tuned

"Take A Child Fishn'" | Get Busy | 04/17/11
 

If you are looking for something fun and fulfilling to do, take a child fishing.  My son, Capt. Jeff Beck, his wife Courtney and I took their daughter Camdyn fishing today.  Thanks to Capt. Brandon Sauls we went to the super secret "Sydney and Sloan Spot" flounder fishing.  In fact we were soon joined by Brandon, Whitney and the twins.  There were a couple of guys just inside the creek mouth where we wanted to be, catching red drum.  No problem though, as Camdyn cast an OIFC Super Premium Mud Minnow with her pink Zebco on a pink and black Shakespear 6 1/2' pole and caught our 1st fish of 2011!!!  It was an undersized flounder, but she got the skunk out of the "OIFC Talechaser" Polar, and it showed that the flounder are around..

We only had a couple of hours to play because Camdyn had a horseback riding lesson.  But what a great way to spend a beautiful Sunday in Paradise.  Ya'll come join us, and bring a child.  We might even tell you where Sydney and Sloan's Secrete Spot is.

"good day in the stream" | Real-Time Update | 04/15/11
 

Felt good to be back in the stream. Weather was manageable at 15-20kts from east. I decided to run south and fish the macmarle'n and scarp area, think ing I'd get out in front of stream eddy and fish more blended water. Action started slow at macmarle'n, no trolling bites and only a few jacks jigging. We put the trolling gear back out and headed to the scarp. At 11:00am we g ot our first bite and from then until we left at 2pm it was on. Lots of bla ckfin and we finally caught the token wahoo as our final fish. Ajs were hungry too, covering us up twice on all lines! Day was a success. I think a big key to making a day right now is being able to target blackfin. Feathers and cedar plugs are deadly. Be back to OIFC this pm around 5:30pm, come down and check us out. Jig class tomorrow pm wit fishing on Sunday. Stay tuned. Capt. Brant McMullan
