"Hot wahoo bite " | Choice of Two / OIFC | 01/31/16
 

~~
All my wife wanted for her birthday was to catch a wahoo...luckily I didn't disappoint...and to top it off, fresh tuna sashimi for dinner

Chris Campbell and wife Robin said the bite was hot at the MacMarlen ledge today. Here's his report to me: Bite on fire at MacScarplen. Got lines in at 8 and left at noon. 3 wahoo and a blackfin, but as usual lost more than I'd like to admit...non stop action, just me and robin, lost a slob right next to boat trying to wire him up, broke the hook in half...will send pics later for fishing report if u want Capt. Brant McMullan

"State Record White Marlin" | Do Work / OIFC | 01/28/16
 

~~North Carolina officials have certified that a Virginia man has set the state record for a white marlin.

Officials with the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries said in a news release Wednesday that Neil Manning of Ashburn, Virginia, reeled in the 138-pound fish Nov. 16 while fishing off Hatteras.

The fish measured 85 inches from the tip of the lower jaw to the fork in the tail. The girth of the fish measured 37 inches.

The previous state record for white marlin was 118 pounds, 8 ounces, caught off the coast of North Carolina's Oregon Inlet in 1976. The world record for white marlin is 181 pounds, 14 ounces, caught off the coast of Brazil.

Manning used live menhaden on a 30-pound test line.

3- ALL of OIFC will be 20% off.  Clothing, gifts, tackle, marine supplies, bait....  (excludes fuel only).

4- Clearance of 50% and more on select tackle and clothing

Seminar- I'd like to hear about tactic changes for inshore species during the different seasons. Such as speck fishing in the spring vs. summer time etc. Also would like to know more about fishing the nearshore artificial reefs.

Michael Campbell 01/29/2016

Mr McMullan In regards to seminars I could list about a 100 topics because I just moved up from the gulf coast to Fort Bragg and I am trying to learn the area. So my top 3 would be King Fish(who would not wanna hear about that), Cobia fishing(over looked fishery), and throwing a cast net. This is just my two cents worth. Thanks for your time

James Taylor 01/28/2016

I want to hear about venice trips you were planning. Made plans for this Dec. 2015 and Derrick cancel. Boat problems i guess, maybe not enough people or just don't want to pursuit. Did you instead do a blue fin trip in Dec. that was on ATMC?





"VuDu Mullet" | Do Work / OIFC | 01/26/16
 

I recently read a report on Dave Workman's page that the VuDu 3.5" Mullet is a hot product in Florida.  It is fairly new to us but we have it in the OIFC.  Let me hear how it produces for you!!!

"2016 Jolly Mon VIP" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 01/26/16
 

Thank you to qualifiers and waiting list members who have contacted me about this year's tournament. Once we get a little closer to the tournament (late february-early march) I will be sending all the invitees an email stating  that they are invited and when entries will start being accepted. Reminder - entries to this tournament are non-transferrable unless a captain has qualified twice. Meaning they have placed in the top 30 in both the 2015 Jolly Mon and 2015 Fall Brawl. Then one of the two entries can be transferred. If you are unsure of this check the invitee list that can be found here.

Also, I have been impressed with the number of anglers that have filled out the 2016 Jolly Mon VIP survey. Out of 107 participants, 55% would like to enter a 30 boat, $1500 entry tournament and 76% of the 55% would like the tournament to be in the fall. Whats your opinion? Click the quick and simple survey link below if interested in either of these options. https://www.esurveycreator.com/s/e38b570

Were those fish caught around Ocean Isle?

Chris 01/24/2016

That looks like a black drum instead of a sheep head.





"Red White & Blue" | Do Work / OIFC | 01/22/16
 

~~Brandon & Clay we have your new Team America gear at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center.  We are getting in new products daily.  I'm liking the ocean digital break up myself.   And for the trout fishermen we have the new VuDu Shrimp with the rattles.  The trout bite slowed a little, in my opinion, because the water temp dropped.  So the VuDu may be what's required to draw a little extra attention for next week when it is supposed to warm up.

What about a small weekend fun tournament with a $100.00 entry fee paid when you check out at OIFC on the morning of the tournament. Pay several places and maybe a Calcutta. Weigh in at 5:00 on that day. Could do a Saturday or Sunday. Also could have a Spanish mackerel tournament with the same format.

Patrick Prince 01/21/2016

Done the survey; maybe a two day tounament aggregated weight.
