"Working on the Docks" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/11/11
 

Mr. Yost brought his two boys fishing for a half day. We hit a lot of docks along the intercoastal waterway and drifted the Shallote Inlet. The results were fair. We caught several short flounder to get one keeper out of the deal. The redfish were under the docks hitting live mullet and menhaden. We did manage a couple on live shrimp, but the pinfish are quicker than the reds on most cast. It has been tough, but keep moving and you are bound to hit a few. Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

"Knocking on the Docks" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/10/11
 

Headed out again this morning working the canal docks and several along the waterway. Caught a few small ones inside the canals, but found a few keepers in the waterway. One dock produced a rather nice one. Hope to repeat this for my trip tomorrow. Capt. J-Dogg continues to slay the reds and black drum. Stay tuned for his pictures as he had some nice ones. We both continue to work on the fish. Give us a call. 575-FISH! See ya on the water!

"A to Z Poorman's Dinner" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/09/11
 

My wife left me again...she took all the credit cards, money, and the kid...ahh, she just went to a wedding out of town...I think she will be back?...LOL... Either way I was left to fend for myself this afternoon. With no money I had to do it the old fashion way. I grabbed my fishing pole and a few deep creek baits. Hopped on the boat and dropped the trolling motor. My third cast produced a nice 17 inch fish, a few more cast produced another keeper. I attracted an audience quickly as I never left the canal and folks quickly caught on to what I was doing. Talked to a few folks and shared some information. Another angler caught one on a mepps spinner bait. It was that magical thirty minutes before dark bite. Glad to see the rain...it has brought life back to the surface as bait was everywhere this afternoon. I look forward to the next few days and the full moon is approaching at the end of the week. Should see lots of fish caught and some good ones in the mix. Good Luck! See ya on the water!

"Hot Water 89.8 Degrees!" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/08/11
 

Fished a 4 hour trip with Allen and Jim yesterday morning. We caught a handfull of flounder with only one making the mark. We also landed a nice red under a dock. We were using live shirmp and mullet. The shrimp have been abundant at low tide in the feeder creeks. Be prepared to get shallow and even walk in the mud if you want to get to the shrimp. The mullet minnows are thick along with the pogies in all sizes. You have just got to be patient in locating the right size school. The canals seem to be holding the best size bait right now. Mullet at low tide and pogies near high tide.

Fished in the afternoon with Mr. Thomason and his boys. The water was so hot we struggled to keep our bait alive. We caught some perfect size pogies and mullet. We also had shrimp. We hit several docks and holes...We fished from the Sunset area all the way up to the Shallote River. Lots of running and gunning...Everyone landed a flounder, but no keepers. We also landed a big croaker. I really felt we were in the right spot for the black drum since the croaker were there. Just wasn't going to happen. Glad to see the rain this morning. We needed it! Hopefully it will cool the water down a bit and turn the fish on! See ya on the water!

"Jack's 1st Flounder" | Get Busy | 07/08/11
 

Captain Mike Kennerly had an experience this weekend that only us Grandaddy's can appreciate.  He was with his 8 yr. old grandson Jack when he caught his 1st flounder.  Jack was extremely pleased as he said of his 17" fish 'Paw Paw, I caught a HUGE flounder".  When asked where he caught him he replied "in the jaw".  I think ole Paw Paw has been schooling the young man.

Moms, Dads, Grandparents..the experience of being with you child and their child when they catch their 1st fish is an unexplainable emotion.  I know, I was with my son when he caught his 1st fish and my son, his wife and I were with their daughter when she caught her 1st fish.  Experience that feeling.  Take your child and/or grandchild fishing.

Jeff Furr and his son George Coker had a great day on the backwater behind OIB.  They caught several flounder on Gulp shrimp..  He said they caught them in the corners of the mouth.  Jeff....comedy is dangerous work and should be left to the professionals.  In all seriousness. We're happy you took you son fishing and doubly as happy ya'll had a good day.

"Ready for my best catch" | Get Busy | 07/08/11
 

My wife, Stephanie, and I have officially begun the labor inducement process.  We are all set up in the hospital and now it's hurry up and wait.  There's a little girl coming at some point but when is the question.  We've been told between 24 and 72 hours however neither of us are very patient so we're hoping the little one is the same way.  Hopefully my next report will include a picture of my latest and best catch.  Stand by.

"The Beat Continues" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/07/11
 

Captain Brant along with Captain Chris Eckert returned to the OIFC after a bumpy but successful charter.  He and his crew fished in about 80 feet of water using live cigar minnows they jigged up.  As can be seen in the picture they caught a king, a couple of mahi and some spanish.

Captain Brant said that due to some of our recent weather conditions the pogies had move up the Cape Fear River.

"" | Real-Time Update | 07/07/11
 

Pogys moving back off shallotte inlet. Came in from offshore today and were in 35 feet of water, several pods. Interesting to see that they must have headed offshore during ruff weather but now coming in when calmer. I always wondered where they went. Maybe they will move onto beach tomorrow?

"Father and Son" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/06/11
 

What a day to remember!!  A father and son from Wyoming having a very exciting off shore  charter.  These are the memories Colter and Mark Sheridan made as they fished a charter with Captain Chris "O.C.) Dew and Captain Zach Faulkner.

The crew skipped looking for live bait and opted for Bait Master, OIFC frozen cigar minnows.  They made way through bumpy seas to an area 65 ft. deep where they put out lines and dropped a downrigger ball.  They got a king hit a short time later.

Then they decided to pull in baits and headed for 80 ft. water.  Using the same method they caught more kings.  They also did a little sea bass fishing to round out the menu. 

The group headed back to the oifc after very enjoyable day on a charter charter.

"Cobia Ray w/ Jenny and Brooke" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/05/11
 

Ben and I took a couple of ladies out fishing up the Shallote river this morning. The bite has been a bit slow, so my expectations were not very high. We hit our first spot without a bite. Moved to our second spot and began to see ribbon fish sky on pods of mullet. I started floating shirmp and mullet hoping to catch some to sell for King bait here at the OIFC. We could not get the ribbon fish to eat. I was getting ready to move when one of the rods bent over double and line screaming of the reel! Brooke picked up the rod and started the fight. She did an awsome job of angling and landed a nice cobia. Thats right! A cobia in the Shallote River. A nice one at that! We took a few photos and released him to fight another day. We got a few more baits in the water and another rod bent over double. I thought we had another cobia the way it was acting. After several minutes of hard fighting and great angling by Jenny we landed a 16 pound ray. Great job ladies! Thanks for fishing with us. Hope to see you again in the near future. See ya on the water!

"Inshore bite?" | Tiberias - 22' | 07/04/11
 

The Jetton Brothers joined us yesterday for a full day of fishing. They requested that we catch trout and redfish. I told them the redfish were hitting pretty good, but the trout were scarce. First bite of the day was a nice 19" trout! Had to make a few phone calls to make sure we could keep it for supper. We landed about a dozen flounder short of the 15" mark with no keepers to be found. We squeaked out a few more trout, two keeper reds, and a black drum.

This morning Preston Beamer and crew joined us for a half day. We started off looking for flounder with one really short fish caught. Moved on to our first dock and no reds. Moved to our second dock and no reds. The pinfish wouldn't even eat this morning. We moved back to trying for flounder. One more short fish and two missed opportunities. I started floating live shrimp to catch one short trout and a large pinfish. Needless to say, it did not happen the way we wanted it to this morning. However, the Beamers will be eating good tonight as I shared a few flounder fillets from a previous trip. Thanks for fishing with us guys! See ya on the water!

"Big Whiskey at The Shark Hole" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/04/11
 

A post yesterday highlighted the OIFC Charter boats and The Big Whiskey at the Shark Hole yesterday.  The Big Whiskey is captained by Chris Campbell (photographer and partner in Giving Weddings Photographry of OIB), when his wife Robin lets him run the boat.  They also had Wesley Reaves onboard.  They were fishing OIFC cigar minnows.  Shortly after arriving at The shark Hole and putting their lines out, they got hit by a smoker.  Wesley manned the rod and boated this nice looking king.
