"Red Drum Blitz" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/13/10
 

While many people were off shore taking advantage of the hot king bite, Captain Jeff Williamson (OIFC/Get Busy) and Will King took a couple of hours to do some in shore fishing.  Armed with live shrimp Jeff had cast netted earlier they went to hunt the red drum.

They found them too...probably the hottest red fish bite either had experienced!  All total this dynamic duo caught and released over 30 drum.  What a trip!  The shrimp are showing up in pretty good numbers and can be caught with a little skill using a cast net.  As far as the fish are concerned, you are the most popular person on the block if you have shrimp.  Next and a VERY close 2nd is pogies and in 3rd place are mud minnows.

Jeff fishes the backwaters for the OIFC and provided the pictures.

"Don't Forget Grouper" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/13/10
 

While the fishing report has been filled with catches of mahi, cobia, flounder, ect. Capt Chris Eckert and I embarked on a grouper mission yesterday morning. The plan was to run out about 40-50 miles, load up on grouper and be back at the dock in time to watch the US in the World Cup in the ac. You got to love it when a plan comes together, well almost. We fished 100-110ft and did as planned loading up on grouper from 8 to 20lbs. The seas were flat and temperatures scorching so we put the 31' Yellowfin in the wind at 50mph and headed back to the dock around 1:30pm. So far the plan is right on schedule. Everything was good to go until we got back to the OIFC and there was a traffic jam at the fish cleaning table. Too many fish on the dock! Capt. Steel and crew hammered the mahi. Then Capts Phil Hooks and Scott Heffernan showed up with a boat load of kings and mahi. I actually had to wait my turn to use the fish cleaning table which typically can accommodate a crowd. Oh well, luckily I recorded the game. A great day on the water and the week looks great for Jolly Mon prefishing.

"90's" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/12/10
 

Today was a banner day for kings and cobia in the Long Bay area of Ocean Isle Beach.  In the earlier part of the morning the pogies were off of Holden Beach.  The king and cobia action was at the 90's where Capt Chris Dew and 1st mate Aaron Dew saw success on both their morning and afternoon charters.  Captain Zach was also there and had several kings and cobia.  Zach was using frozen cigar minnows as was Captain Chris.

Captain William Parker was also in on the action at the 90's while fishing with his brother Fred of Charlotte.  They caught several kings, spanish and a cobia.  Captain William reported all but one king was caught on frozen cigar minnows, the other was on a pogey.  Captain Steele had a charter to the stream where they caught several mahi.  Steele will do a report on his trip later.

Pictured below is Fred Parker with one of his kings.

"Jack Attack" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/12/10
 

Sometimes when doing a Fishing Report something stands out that epitomizes, for many, what salt water fishing is all about.  This is one of those times.

Yesterday Brian Aycock, aboard his boat the "Hail Yeah", took his oldest son Austin, their friend Eddie Julian and Eddie's sons, Edward and Davis to the Gulf Steam.  They caught 3 mahi, 15 AJ's and a scamp.  But more importantly they spent time together on the sea fishing as family and friends.  Memories that will outlast any fish they may have caught.  Well maybe.... unless they think about when they fished with Capt. Brant, Capt. Barrette and Rube and they caught the 74 lb king.  Or when they won the Dixie Chicken....  Anyway, enjoy these pictures of yesterday's beautiful ocean.

"Jolly Mon conditions update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/12/10
 

Looking out to long range thru next week, it appears wind/sea conditions will be lite, which looking into my crystal ball suggest the beach water should clear up throughout the period, setting the stage for a continuation of the beach bite that has been going on all spring. Few years ago the Jolly Mon was won by a jon boat within a nine iron of the beach[$40,000+]; could this year be a repeat? We'll have some good intel after this weekends fishing so standby. Come fish the Jolly Mon next weekend.

"Mahi Bite" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/11/10
 

Captain Chris Dew and 1st Mate Aaron Dew were chartered by Preston Cave (East End, NC), Marshall Stillman (Mocksville, NC), Brad & LeAnn Rogers (Advance, NC), Mike Weir (Advance, NC), and September White (Mocksville, NC).  Together they fished the 100/400 and Blackjack areas.  Pulling a Black Bart they caught the large mahi in the picture, which was angled by Preston.  They also said they had a big one get away, and are going to provide this sceptical reporter with some pictures.  Thrown in the mix was the AJ Mike landed, a small mahi and some black bass..Pretty good day!

Although I didn't make it to the docks, I'm told that Captains Brant and Zach had a respectable showing of kings and spanish on 2-one half day trips.

"Wrong One" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/11/10
 

Captain Chris Dawson (OIFC/Miss Janelle) and Brad High went king fishing a few miles out earlier in the week, before the winds..  They caught and released several kings, keeping the 26 lb'r in the picture.  Chris said the one in the picture looked citation size and since they'd killed this one, they let a bigger one go.  Seems the keeper didn't make citation size.  The good news is by all accounts, the kings as well as the spanish have moved into our area.  Just be careful what you throw back!

"Injured on duty" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/10/10
 

The OIFC's very own Captain Jeff Williamson took some guys fishing today.  They were out of the wind and catching some flounder near the Shallotte Inlet.  Someone cast towards a dock and got hung up.  The all helpful Captain Jeff was working to free the line, when WHAM!, a 1 oz sinker hit him between the eyes!.  He said he bled  "like a stuck hog".  Fortunately he escaped with a couple of cuts, and a bruised nose.  But thankfully he didn't get any blood on his new metro fishing shirt, and I am sure no one will pick on him  Perhaps a Purple Sinker Award is in line.

""Gettin Jiggy"" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/10/10
 

David Braswell, aboard the "Gettin Jiggy" fished in 150ft of water Tuesday using Roscoe Jigs and caught this nice grouper pictured below.  On the trolling scene we've received reports of a hot mahi bite in the Stream, approximately 70 miles out.  One person I talked with reported 26 mahi caught on one boat.

Our World Cats had half day trips.  Captain Zach brought home some kings, as seen in yesterday's picture by Zach, while Captain Chris Dew reported hot spanish action right at the Shallotte Inlet Buoy in 30 ft of water.

The wind started picking up out of the west yesterday, making for snotty conditions.  Our boats are "on the hill" this morning due to wind, but the prediction is for things to settle down and I expect action to pick up.  This weekend looks great for heading out and trying to get some fishing action.   Isn't that a change!!

"T of Spades" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/09/10
 

Tommy Helms sent these pictures of him and Tommy Lytton.  He asked if I'd heard of the ace of spades.  They are the T's of spades, and for good reason.  Tommy didn't say where these fine fish came from, but my educated guess would be a particular near shore AR.  The bait of choice is jelly balls which are plentiful.  Tubbs Inlet was full of them Sunday. Location and bait are one thing, (actually two, but whatever) however, technique is quite another and I would expect the T's to have that down pat.  They also included a couple of flounder their friend Cooter from Charlotte caught for lunch.

What a crew!

"5.4 lb flounder" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/08/10
 

Check out Michael Palmer's 5.4 lb flounder.  Michael landed it this weekend using pogies.  At the time I saw Michael fishing we were all struggling getting the pogies.  They were there but went deep when we threw the net.  The flounder and red drum bite in our area had been exceptional this year.  The spanish have moved in close enough where those with smaller inshore boats can venture out on good days and spanish fish.

"Toes Up" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/08/10
 

Richard Boles of the Toes Up Fishing Team was kind enough to send the photo of a cobia caught by Glenn Boles on a recent trip aboard their 23 ft. Contender, the Toes Up.  This was Glenn's first cobia.

Now for a fish story.  Robbie Dial, a great friend, fishing buddy and truth teller, as far as fishing goes...sent this picture of a 48 inch  drum caught Memorial Day at the Sunset Beach swing bridge by Ernie Blue.  Robbie said the drum was caught on an 1 1/2 inch mud minnow....I report, you decide. (Just kidding Robbie), great story!  He also sent a picture of a 9 lb sheepshead  caught by Earnest Chavis while fishing with Robbie.  Earnest has caught several sheepshead in this class recently.

Many thanks to Richard and Robbie for the pictures and stories.
