"Tubbs Inlet Is Alive" | Get Busy | 05/09/11
 

Tubbs Inlet is full of life.  Flounder, blues, mullet and the beautiful red drum are all thriving in this estuary.  I was just told by a man today that a hot spot for red drum fishing is by the 1st pier in Tubbs.  I guess, based on Captain Jeff Williamson's pictures he must be correct.

Also, Jeff took a reporter from The Brunswick Beacon newspaper to Goat Island today.  She doing a story on the goats.  Seems we caused quite a stir!!

"Pics from Friday's Trip" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/08/11
 

Capt. Jacob pretty well covered the action.  Thought I would add a couple of pics.  Stay tuned to our Youtube page for some great video of Dolphin and Marlin action live and in color.  Think there was some language on there that may be disturbing to some viewers but I will add anyway.  Just turn the sound off. ;-)

"Near Shore Cobia" | Get Busy | 05/08/11
 

While the Cat Boats were tearing it up in the Stream and the Talechaser had a hot hand inshore, Captain William Parker of the "Hound Dog", also of "Who Let The Dogs Out" fame was catching cobia near shore.  Capt. William began his foggy day working the near shore AR's flounder fishing with little luck.  He began working his way home towards Shallotte Inlet.  When he got near the Shallotte Inlet sea buoy he was surprised by 15 cobia around his Carolina Skiff!  He zipped up towards the 460 and caught some pin fish fish and headed back to the sea buoy.  Sure enough the cobia were still hanging around.  William tossed a pin fish out on a flounder rig with a treble hook and after a couple of break offs he hooked up!  He battled for 20 minutes then boated the cobia.  Rube weighed it at the OIFC and it was 23.7 lbs.  Can you just imagine.?  On flounder gear!

"Stop The Presses!!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/08/11
 

Here is a picture of a 60.65 lb king caught May 7th by Tom Cavin of Kannapolis, N.C.  It was caught at the AR 460 on a pogy.  It took Tom about 30 minutes to get the fish in.  This picture and information is courtesy of the Oak Island Pier web site.

Let's sum up.  Wahoo, white marlin, mahi, black fin in the stream.  Cobia and kings near shore.  Flounder and red drum inshore.  It is THAT time!!!

"OIFC world cat stream report" | Real-Time Update | 05/07/11
 

Fished the blackjack today with delpezzo family, Brandon Wilson and Jody Thompson. The mahi bite was very strong in the am and we picked after 11am for the rest of the day. The mahi were all fair size and we r seeing some nice bulls mixing in now. Also scattered wahoo mostly in the 25-30 pound range. Overall very good fishing. We also finished the last half hour jigging and caught a nice red grouper.

" Stream Still Hot!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/07/11
 

Capt. Steele Park and Capt. Chris Dew ran to the stream along with Capt. Brant and 1st mate Aaron Dew today.  Aboard with Steele and Chris were Jerry Pressley, his 7 yr. old son Jared (Lexington, N.C.), Mike Berrier (Lexington, N.C.), Dwayne Wood (Pleasant Garden, N.C.) and Jerry Prater of Advance, N.C.  They flew on instruments due to heavy fog, and dealt with sloppy sea conditions which only allowed them to make 21 knots but the inconveniences were worth it. as you can see in the pictures.

"Tubbs Inlet Action" | Get Busy | 05/07/11
 

I was at the helm of the OIFC until 1pm today.  That's when I joined Captain Jeff Beck and Richie Heywood aboard the OIFC/Talechaser for a little inshore action.  We hit Tubbs on a falling tide and immediately picked up 4 short flounder while trolling the docks.  Richie boated a 16" which we put in the live well in case we caught a few more keepers.

Richie had a creek he wanted to try on the backside of Tubbs.  We plained out the 17 ft skiff and skimmed over some VERY skinny water and made it to some deep holes.  We anchored and fan cast with mud minnows and Berkley Gulp 3" white shrimp.  I struck gold when I was hammered by a drum.  I lost it beside the boat when a knot gave way and the red fish escaped. GRR!  I wonder who tied that knot?

Richie and Jeff hit pay dirt with 2 other drum.  They were barely legal but we released them.  The tide began to rise and the bite stopped. We trolled our way out and picked up another short flounder.  In all (I think) we had 7 flounder and 3 red drum.

"RED HOT FISHING" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/06/11
 

Below is a picture I just got from Matt Wilson who decked a 39 pound King today off Ocean Crest pier.  Capt. Chris Dawson said his crew did battle with a 40 pound Cobia this AM on a 4 hour charter, just a couple miles offshore.  Best of all, Capt. Steele had what I'd say is one of if not the most impressive Gulf Stream catches I've seen from this area.  4 Wahoo, 6 Mahi, 2 Tuna and released (as in got to the boat, got pictures and cut the line) 2 White Marlin.  If that's not smoking it I don't know what is.  The ocean is alive from the beach to the Stream.  Both our charter boats will be in the Stream tomorrow.  Setting up for the perfect "you should have been here yesterday" scenario, but we're going to give them our best anyway.  Stay tuned.

Many of you are heading for the gulf stream tomorrow and dreaming about what might happen. We didn't have much time for day dreaming today in the stream. The first line we tried to set got hit this morning. We missed the fish, but that was a great sign of things to come. We got our full spread set and the long line got drilled. Capt. Steele called out billfish! Clear the lines! Clear the lines! I started with the short rigger, but didn't get far as that to got slammed! Yet another billfish! Double hook up on White Marlin!! I handed off the rod to the crew and began clearing the outside rigger. Again, as I reeled quickly to clear the line a mahi slammed the bait! Game on! We landed the mahi first and then both White Marlin for an awesome start to our day. After a few pictures and a quick wash down, we got busy setting lines. We were way off our numbers after fighting the White Marlins, so we had time to get set. As we got near our numbers flying fish were getting up everywhere. A mahi skied out of the water and ate one mid air just to the right of our boat. Awesome! It wasn't long before we had one grey hounding across our spread. After a couple of blackfin tuna and a mahi we were back to trying to get our spread fully set. Capt. Steele had his side set, I was still working on my outside rigger. Capt. Steele yells out, "There he is!" I glance back and didn't see anything. I was trying my best to drop my lines back. That is when I noticed the line I was trying to set peeling off the reel. I engaged the reel and game on! Awesome wahoo bite! He threw a rooster tail all the way across our spread and put on a show! Those are just a few of the high points for us today. We ended it with 2 wahoo and a mahi right at the end of our trip. Our total count of fish landed today was 4 Wahoo, 6 mahi, 2 blackfin tuna, and 2 White Marlin released at boat side. I hope you guys get to live the dream tomorrow! See ya on the water!

Brrrrrrr - temperature on land 48 degrees this morning.  The guys had a morning half day and got confused and loaded up the Bluefin rods.  The wind is blowing, but forecast is to lay down and be pretty nice the next few days.  We have a Stream trip Friday, so we'll report on the latest.  Action in the Stream has been very good this past week. The Dolphin are really showing up good, which keeps everyone active in between Blackfin Tuna and Wahoo.  The Grouper jigging has been pretty good as well, particularly in the 150-300 foot depth range.

I am hosting a Gulf Stream trolling class coming up May 14-15.  The land class is the PM of the 14th and the fishing is all day the 15th.  I have ONE spot available- cost is $450 per person- call 910 367 2945 or email info@oifc.com for details and to sign up. 

Stand by for more reports.

"Judy's Whopper" | Get Busy | 05/04/11
 

Captain Tommy Helms sent these pictures, one of which he named Judy's Whopper, a short (to say the least) flounder caught in Tubbs Inlet

Tommy redeemed himself in the next picture.  But, if you notice the picture was taken while the flounder were on the dock.  Tommy didn't bother to say where he caught them.
