"Spanish" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/23/10
 

William Parker sent this picture of the fish he and Cale Boxley caught at Christina's yesterday while fishing aboard William's "Hound Dog".  They were using quality frozen cigar minnows from the OIFC.

The ocean was beautiful yesterday.  The only problem is the pogies have not shown up along the beaches yet.  There are plenty flounder fishing sized pogies in the waterway.

"Honeymoon" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/23/10
 

Great friends of the OIFC, Zach and Mary Beth Hayes have sent pictures of their honeymoon fishing trip in Mustique, which is part of the Grenadine Islands. They fished near the island of St. Vincent which is closest  to where the Caribbean and Atlantic meet.  The captain showed them the contour of the ocean floor which goes from 100 ft to several thousand feet quickly.  The currents were rough  but the fish and birds were everywhere.  All in all they caught 12 blackfin, 8 barracuda and 2 kings.  They were having double blackfin hook ups on birds they were trolling right behind the boat.

This sounds like a great honeymoon trip!  Congratulations, we hope ya'll have a long and wonderful marriage and we'll see you soon at the OIFC.

"Mr. Goodhands" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/22/10
 

Captain Jeff Beck landed this 36.6 lb. cobia while fishing with Steve Lanier and Toby Russ aboard Toby's "Mr. Goodhands".  The guys laid a chum slick at an AR about 8 miles out and caught the cobia after a 25 minute fight jigging with pin fish.  They saw several other cobia but couldn't get them interested enough to bite.  They also caught a few sharks and left when a school of amberjacks showed up as they were targeting cobia. Captain Jeff now takes 1st place in the cobia division of the OIFC Rodeo.

The Coast Guard wants ya'll to file an environment impact statement for the huge chum slick you left.

"Friday's Action" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/21/10
 

Captain Shannon, fishing the "Always Broke" out of Holden Beach reported that he and his crew headed to the Lighthouse Rocks this past Saturday.  They noted several flying fish on the way out, but the sea condition made them think they'd have problems keeping baits in the water.  When they got to the Lighthouse rocks they started putting line out.  As soon as the 1st line was in, the reel screamed.  Dale Britt of Varnumtown jumped on the line and after a fun battle they had their 1st king.  This was Dale's first king ever and he was ecstatic!.

As the day rolled on, the action slowed.  They set up a mahi spread consisting of a double hooked balleyhoo and a green skirt a short distance back.  That's when the yellow and green flash exploded in the water and the reel screamed.  But it was quickly realized that the drag wasn't set and a birds nest soon appeared.   They were able to get things under control and a fine mahi was gaffed.  The guys managed 5 more mahi before calling it a day.  A great fish story.

Capt.'s Zach and Chris Dawson fished a charter today and the group landed several kings.   They have a full day charter Saturday with a possibility of heading to the Stream.  Capt Jeff B. and friends are headed to the 455 in the morning to see what they can get into.  There's no doubt the king and cobia are near..  We open at 6am and the early bird gets the,,,,well, fish?  Anyway stop by.  I get lonely in the morning.

""Just Floundering Around"" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/20/10
 

Did a little fishing with a wonderful couple from Tennessee today. We caught some quality flounder, some brothersome blues, and a redfish. The blues are thick ranging from 1 to 3 lbs. and making it difficult to fish for desired species. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs Bull for landing their first flounder and Mrs. Bull also landed her first redfish. We also keep a few blue crabs that made the mark. The Bull family will be enjoying one fine meal real soon. The easiest bait to find is mud minnows at the OIFC! If you can throw a cast net, the menhaden are everywhere and the bigger fish seem to be keying in on this bait. Need a cast net demostration? Come buy one from the OIFC and I will show you how to use it in my spare time:) See ya on the water!

"Cobia and King Bite" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/18/10
 

It's 2 pm and Captain Zach called to report a good king and cobia bite on his charter.  He fished with a group from Charlotte and they were trolling with dead baits/green skirts about 9 miles out in 72 degree 50 ft deep water.  Sounds like the near shore action is picking up.

"Thunderstorms & Kings" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/17/10
 

This morning Capt. Zach and I met Bruce Naylor and his friends, Dave, Mike, Lee, and Bruce, on the dock prepared to seek out King Mackerel. Also greeting us on the dock was an early morning thunderstorm complete with lightening and heavy downpours. After watching the radar, we decided to wait a couple of hours and let the storms pass. At about 9:30 the radar began to show favorable conditions offshore. It looked as though we would have to get through the last bit of rain on the way out but Bruce and his friends were real troopers. They wanted to fish. Their patience and determination paid off as we were met with only partly cloudy skies and light winds once we reached the fishing grounds. After a few cutoffs and one king being bitten in half at the Christina we moved over toward the AR 455. In a matter of minutes we were hooked up. We returned to the dock with several kings and a nice spanish. I would like to add that on our trip we were joined by Tim Haas from VISITNC.COM. He was with us to gather information that is to be used by our local Chamber of Commerce as well as VISITNC.COM.

"Seaclusion" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/17/10
 

On May 15th Jack Brautigan (Wilmington), Bobby Hancock (Concord), and Tony Taylor (High Point), fished aboard the Seaclusion with Capt. Steve Ritenour of Whiteville, N.C.  Their day started very slow, but the action picked up later when they fished a weed line near the Blackjack.  They also bottom fished and hooked up with what they think was a grouper, which was eaten by an 8 ft. shark.  They fought the shark for about 20 minutes before he broke off.  Overall they had a very successful day, catching 21 mahi.

Pictured is Jack Brautigan with the bull dolphin and Bobby Hancock with the day's catch.
