"Black Bart's" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/22/11
 

Bob Newell sent this picture of a mahi they caught just off shore of the 100/400 during the Far Out Shoot Out.  They also fought a blue marlin that hit on a black bart.

"Steele park" | Real-Time Update | 05/22/11
 

Fished the gulf stream today aboard a friends boat, the Over Equipped. Fished to the east around the same ole hole. 1 nice wahoo, 6 gaffer dolphins, 2 blackfins and 2 grouper. Wish we could have had that day yesterday during the foso. Fish are still out there, just a little tough as they are scattered. Best advice I can give is fish inshore of the numbers. They seem to be holding in shallower water. Got some good video of the hoo. Will post on our youtube page asap.

"Far Out Shoot Out" | Get Busy | 05/20/11
 

Today was picture postcard of the Atlantic off the coast of OIB.  Tomorrow (Saturday) ought to be even better.  Several boats took advantage of the break in weather and hit the "high seas",  many reported a hot blackfin bite as well as mahi bite.  We had our best luck at the steeples.  Word has it that the wahoo bite is a little just before Charleston.

I took a couple of pics. my trip with Capt. Jeff B. and Toby and Rusty Russ.

"Back For More" | Get Busy | 05/19/11
 

Capt. Jeff got into the flounder pretty good on his charter yesterday morning.  So good in fact that he an Capt. Jeremy Ridenhour went back for more.  J Dogg, if that is really where you caught your fish, you know you'll have to have a parking pass to fish there this weekend!

"Working on It" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/19/11
 

I have been busy with store duty the past three days while Capt. Jeff Williamson has been wearing out the flounder. I decided to go after them this morning for a few hours before more obligations ran me off the water this afternoon. Things started off pretty slow as I drifted live minnows from the Shallotte Inlet to the mouth of the Shallotte river without a bite. I decided to follow the tide on up the river. I changed over to artificails just trying to locate some fish. It wasn't long before the first flounder was to the boat, then another, another, and yet another....Most of the flounder were just below the mark, but would have made it last year. I had only one keeper out of 7 flounder caught on artificials. I also managed to land three trout with one of them being pretty nice. I never got back around to live bait today, until I rounded the corner and saw two huge pods of pogies. Thats right! All you King fishermen out there listen up. Two days in a row large schools of pogies have been found just inside the Shallotte Inlet at tip top high tide. Some schools have also made it just past Inlet View Bar and Grill up the Shallotte River. That is the best information I have for now. See ya on the water!

Oh! What artificials did I use? Charturese Diamond 4" Sea Assassins and even pulled out the Deep Creek on them today in Charturese. I also heard from another angler today that didn't have any luck on live bait, but had success on berkley gulp shrimp in natural and new penny colors. The trick...at high tide throw as close to the grass as possible where you know black mud is near by and work the bait slowly across the bottom. I am betting you will get a bite. O.K. that is enough for now. See ya on the water!

"GPS Store Far Out Shoot Out- REPORT" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/19/11
 

So far 17 boats are entered.  Entry remains open until Friday at 11:59pm -- you can drop entries at the OIFC or enter on-line

Two boats fished today - Toes Up which weighed one fish of each species for a total of 39 pounds.  Diggin Weighed a 22 pound Mahi.  Fishing is reported a bit slower up and down the line, likely due to the full moon cylce.  Bites should come early then particularly late.  Lines are out at 4pm, so my guess is around 3pm they should start snapping.  Tomorrow the majority of the tournament is scheduled to fish, including myself and family.  Stay tuned for a recap.  Hopefully we'll get a few more boats before tournament end.  The weather is great and fishing is good -- throw your money in the pot and give it a shot.  See you on the water.

"Chris' Wahoo? " | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/18/11
 

Christopher Critz was fishing Jeff Martini's Hook A Hoo Tournament at Gene's Ledge when they hooked up on what they  hoped would be a massive wahoo.  As the fish got closer they realized it wasn't a whoo, but a white marlin!  Surprise...boated photoed and released!

"It is on!!" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/18/11
 

Capt. Jeff Williamson just called in...he reports that pogies are flipping in the Shallotte Inlet and the flounder are underneath them. He shall have more details as he finishes his trip. Meanwhile, don't miss the opportunity to book a trip with us this weekend. Conditions look awesome for some great inshore and nearshore action. The flounder bite continues to get hotter and the spanish should be thick of the beach. Capt Jeff or myself should be able to put you on the bite. Give us a call 575-FISH!!! Otherwise, I will see ya on the water!

"Against The Wall!" | Get Busy | 05/18/11
 

Capt. J Dogg has probably heard those words before, but not while fishing!!  However that's where he, Mike and Aaron Wallace and David McConnell of Hickory found the flounder today.  They said they caught a boatload of flounder using select Ocean Isle Fishing Center Mud Minnows (from the 2nd bait tank) while fishing next to the concrete wall on the ICW and the Shallotte River during a falling tide.  The ones pictured were the only keepers.  But if he'd had his Guy Harvey Fish Stretcher he could have kept a couple more.

JUST IN!!!!!   Capt. Jeff just told me he had gone back and caught 8 more flounder!!!

"Change of Mind" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/17/11
 

Unless Mother Nature changes her mind Thursday and Friday look like the days to fish the Far Out Shoot Out .

We're proud to have added a new boat to our inshore rental fleet.  It is a Sea Pro walk through windshield.  We still have the bay boat.  In fact the father and son combo who rented it today caught 3 flounder near the ICW Public Pier near the Shallotte Inlet

"Lookout!! No!! Lookdown!" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/16/11
 

Well you know? The action has been hot at times inshore and almost none existent on somedays. Everyone knows I like to fish artificials, especially if I am scouting out an area for the next day of fishing. Why? If you can catch them on artificials, surely they will bite live bait. Also, if you catch a Look down on artificials, you can catch anything on artificials! Things are getting wierd in the backwater. Take a look around in the mud during low tide and the starfish are everywhere. Capt. Jeff Williamson also reported flying fish getting up in the inlet a few days ago. I guess the lunar tide and SW wind is pushing some crazy stuff close to shore. Anyway, I caught my Carolina Slam yesterday on artificials and was looking forward to today's trip with Mr. Kennerly and son Michael. We headed up the Shallotte River looking for the bite. We hit several spots without a bite today. We headed for the canals as the wind was howling. No luck there either. We moved into a near by creek and landed our first short flounder of the day. The action was not fast enough for me in that spot, so I moved on down the waterway. We landed a nice keeper redfish and another short flounder. Then the bite we were looking for happened. The drag screamer...a crowd pleaser...or in our case today a heartbreaker. We watched our line peel off the reel for about three good runs and on the fourth just behind the boat broke the line. The two or three times I got a glance at the redfish I would estimate he was just over the slot 27" to 30". Michael was on the rod and I think that sick feeling came over both of us. I really wanted to have a great picture to share with you guys. I am sure Michael would have loved to have a one for bragging rights as well. I guess there is always next time. See ya on the water!

"Offshore Winds" | Get Busy | 05/16/11
 

The winds offshore are playing havoc on the Far Out Shoot Out.  Many fishermen are passing time while waiting for "the day" by fishing inshore.  Capt. Jeff Beck and Toby Russ fished Tubbs Sunday and caught several flounder..a couple of which were keepers.

Senter Currin fished Tubbs and as the pictures show caught flounder and red drum.  Meanwhile, Ben Conner reported the winds picking up near shore this afternoon, but he still managed some spanish in 30 ft. of water.

Things are shaping up for "the day" to be around Friday or Saturday.  Knock on wood!!!

"Good Morning" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/14/11
 

The seas look a little bumpy off shore this morning.  But Captain Chris Dawson is chartes fishing near shore and reports the seas to be glassy with small 2 ft rollers.  The water is ideal!

OR, you may want to stop by the OIFC's fishing yard sale.  There are a lot of "gently used" king rods for sale.  Capt. Brant has come out with a new line of OIFC Custom King rods and a lot of people have bought them  He also has bait and king bags marked down for today only..  Drop by!!

"A Little Too Bumpy" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/14/11
 

I don't think anyone was surprised by the windy conditions and the thunderstorms.  After all, it's "Far Out Shoot Out" week and Bike Week, so we'd feel neglected if we had perfect weather.  Not to fear...this isn't Capt. Brant's 1st rodeo, that's why he established the 8 day format.  We ought to be able to fish sometime during that time frame.

However, Capt. Brant and the OIFC provided some activity with the fishing tackle yard sale, some great sales on bait and other gear in the store and fishing seminars put on by members of our seasoned charter captians.

Meanwhile, the Captains canceled a Gulf Stream trip because of the wind off shore.  They instead ran a near shore charter with the Herbert's.  The crew trolled for spanish and put out some king rigs just in case one of those kings we've all been hearing about showed up.  They fished right off the beach and ventured to the 90's.  The folks landed some spanish, blues and even caught black sea bass on the down rigger line.  Weirder things have happened.

I think it would behoove us to partake in some of Rubes meteorological experience.  So I invite Rube to provide us with a tournament forecast so we can all better plan our trips.
