"Swansboro KMT Pic" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/18/10
 

A bit late now, but here is a picture of the 41.96lber Rube and I put on the board at the Swansboro tourney weekend before last. Ended up in third place behind a couple of mid forties. Need to duplicate this one for the Fall Brawl this weekend!

"Tommy Lytton" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/17/10
 

Just received sad news that Ocean Isle flounder fishing legend Tommy Lytton has died today. His picture and amazing flounder catches, with his #1 fishing buddy Tommy Helms, are frequently seen on our OIFC report. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Tommy's family and family of friends.

"Tommy Lytton" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/17/10
 

Rube has already notified ya'll about the passing of our good friend Tommy Lytton.  He will always be remembered by me as Tommy Helm's fishing partner...a couple of characters who's fishing reports I couldn't improve upon!!!  RIP Tommy

I found a few pictures of Tommy from the summer.  You might remember the Youtube link I did of them patting the shark.  If I can find it again I'll post it.

I have some king pictures and reports, but out of respect for Tommy I'll not do any further posts today.

"Carolina Slam" | Speckulator - 22' | 10/16/10
 

Bob Newell and Stewert McDonald took an inshore trip with Captain Kyle today. You may recognize Bob as the Director of "The Cape Fear Sailfish Classic", seasoned off shore angler, and Captain of the "Black Dog".  This time Bob decided to take a friend in shore fishing and relied on the knowledge and experience of Captain Kyle Hughes. They had a nice Carolina slam....puppy drum, flounder and speckled trout.  All the the fish were released, but Bob is great for providing  pictures.  As for exact location, Capt. Kyle is pretty tight lipped.   Bait wise, Kyle always throws his net and uses what is running.  He keeps it simple, and it's worked well for as long as I've known him The weather inshore was great. 

 The weather off shore was fantastic until the wind picked up for a short time.  The weatherman missed his mark big time and I'm sure it killed the participation in the King Tournament.  A weather forcaster is one of a few jobs where you can be wrong many times over, in a major way and still keep your job.  A little editorial comment from me.  As they say on talk radio, my comments do not necessarily represent the OIFC or it's owner.

""Puppies"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/16/10
 

I had a good friend call me late Thursday night and asked me to put his dad on a redfish Friday morning. We made our plans to start the day at 7:30...I needed to get gas and catch some bait real quick before pulling the trigger. We eased in the first creek and mullet were everywhere. I threw the cast net twice and loaded the live well. I had seen some commotion further back in the creek when we first entered. I told Mr. Norris to get ready, we were going to make it happen right here. I baited his hook and told him where to toss. I loaded a mullet up for myself and made a toss. I hooked up immediately and traded rods with Mr. Norris. As Mr. Norris fought his fish, I hooked up another and then Brett his son in the back of the boat nailed another. O.K. everyone got their redfish for today. Time to fish for ourselves. We all landed several more redfish on live mullet. I would say we ended up with 12+ fish first thing in the morning. We moved around looking for bigger reds around the docks, but something had changed. A beautiful bluebird day! All the bait in the water just seemed so relaxed. We brought out the artificials and started covering some ground. We picked up 5 trout, 5 flounder, and 2 more red drum on artificials. Brett and I completed our slams, but Mr. Norris never got a flounder to hit. Then the wind started howling and made things very difficult. We called it a day. Mr. Norris kept a speckled trout for the frying pan! See ya on the water!

"The Hooked Up" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/14/10
 

Captain Chris Burrows, Captain Joe Seegers, Marian Epps, Bobby, Kyle, Jamie and another angler that Capt Chris (absent minded) Burrows forgot, fished near The Blackjack Hole this weekend aboard Joe's "Hooked Up".  The guys (a term I use generically), landed 3 wahoos, 40 + lbs., 22 bailers and 3 blackfins.  Thusly proving that Chris' hiatus to Tennessee didn't dull his blue water skills one bit.  Welcome home Captain Chris, we missed you!!!!

"Capt. J. Dogg" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/13/10
 

Captain Jeff (J. Dogg Williamson ) of the Get Busy/OIFC had two days of in shore drum fishing with Phillip Hawkins and son-in-law Dean Storm of Lenoir.  Sounded like the guys had a productive trip fishing with mullet minnows around the docks on the ICW.  Look closely and you can see a sweet Contender and can tell exactly whose it is.  Hope you can get it off your lift Captain!  Blame it on Jeff!!

"Fall King Bite" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/13/10
 

Had the opportunity to do a little "fun" fishing yesterday aboard my boat, "Monkey Sea" with my new Brother-in-law, Matt Gleason and one of his close friends, Austin Bergman.  Weather forecast was calling for somewhat rough conditions so we headed down the ditch from Southport to Lockwood Folly and headed out that way. Found HUGE pogey's right outside the inlet, but soon realized that there was bait EVERYWHERE.  Rode a short distance towards Ocean Crest Pier and deployed the kite with 3 baits dangling.  Had 1 fish sky on the center bait but it missed the hooks.  I then watched 2 boats hookup and catch nice fish out of my chum slick and decided it was time to get moving.  A short time after starting the slow troll using Capt. Brant's Pro Rigged Kingfish rigs, we hooked and caught our first fish.  Just after putting that one in the fish box,  while putting the spread back out, fish number 2 exploded on the propwash bait, always a lot of fun to watch... By the time we had number 2 in the boat, my crew was tired from the rocking and rolling of the ocean so we took it to the hill. Folks, Fall fishing is in full swing.  We have all dealt with really slow fishing over the past 2 months.  Don't miss out on the action now that it is here.

"US Open fishing report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/13/10
 

For everyone fishing US Open this week, here is kinda how things are looking. Weather is in summer pattern today, but 2 fronts approaching and wind will kick up SW in front of front. This is a bad wind for us as will stir up inshore water. After passes calls for strong W winds on Friday and NW15-20 on Saturday. The good news is the Kings somehow know our beaches are protected on a north wind, and thus they should move into close to beach, however the prior SW wind may have beach water stirred up.Friday will be a challenge unless wind moves a little more to NW from West. If stays West, may want to consider Carolina Beach inlet as they have some protection on a west wind. The  answer on Saturday should be Yaupon or close in portion of river channel[close to shoal marker] or just offshore of Ocean Crest pier. Look for clear water line, and that is where they should be.

Water has cleared up alot from rains, so hopefully it will not be messed up by SW wind. I think it will be ok, just may have to move mile or so off the beach.

Pogies are abundant up and down the beach.

Good luck to everyone, and check with us as our boats will be fishing this week and we'll see what happens with how the wind effect the fish. Most likely spots like 90/s/Jungle/Shark Hole/Lighthouse Rocks/ect will not be reachable due to winds, so looks like a beach tourney.

"One Old Man To Another" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/13/10
 

This ole' fishing reporter focused so hard on The Rumble In The Jungle that he forgot to acknowledge the accomplishments of his fellow Senior Angler and friends...Captain Rube and his son Captain Barrett McMullan.  While Brant was taking the lead in the SKA Division 9 at The Rumble, his dad Rube and brother Barrett were in a slug fest up the coast in Division 1.  They finished 3rd with a VERY RESPECTABLE 41.96 king in the  30th Annual Swansboro Rotary Club's KMT.  Rube took top honors as Senior Angler.  This was a great weekend for the entire OIFC "family".

Congratulations from one ole Captain to another.......

""On the Fly"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/12/10
 

Mr. Joe wanted to catch a redfish on the fly rod. Talk about a challenge with all this bait in the water? We had a plan though...locate a school using live bait and then offer them a fly. We located a few schools yesterday, but they were having nothing to do with what we were selling on the fly rod. We pounded the schools with several differnent fly patterns, but could not fool them. We would throw a live mullet every now and then on our spinning tackle just to make sure the school had not moved on. Then we would offer them the fly again. Finally our arms gave out. Mr. Joe said the h#?! with this, lets have some fun. We put it to them with live mullet, until the 30 or so mullet minnows were gone. We had live little pogys in the live well. We gave them a try, but these fish were being picking today. We did pick one up on the pogy and another on a live shrimp, but they wanted mullet! Still an awesome day picking up 20+ redfish in the shallows. We ended on a beautiful note as we passed under the Ocean Isle Beach Bridge yesterday. See ya on the water!

Picked up this nice flounder right off my dock this afternoon. It made me start difting my canal and on out around the docks. I picked up a couple of redfish along the docks on the intercoastal as well. Mullet! Live mullet! The water is chop full of these guys and the game fish are keying in on them right now. See ya on the water!

"Kings on the 90's" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/12/10
 

Friday,  James Wemyss fished the 90's using some 10-12 inch mullet.  He had some pretty hot action  between 11 am and 3 pm with 3 kings making it to the side of his boat, only to "come unbuttoned" before he could sink the gaff.  He also saw a few kings sky about 4 ft. in the air.  Three unfortunate kings made it to James' grill later in the evening via his cooler.  As James said "they made for an eventful day".

Many thanks to James and the other anglers who share their fishing stories with us.

"Oink!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/12/10
 

Ok...Ok!!  Corny, I know.  But I need some way to introduce the 19.1 # Hog Nose Snapper "Shorty" brought by Monday for the OIFC crew to weigh in.  The snapper was taken by Jeff McDonald of the "Undertaker"  out of Holden Beach.  Shorty said Jeff got the fish around the Tower area.  He sorta smiled when he said that, so who knows and it's really impolite for me to ask.

Thanks Jeff and Shorty for giving the OIFC the privilege of weighing you fish.

While I'm on the Hog Nosed Snapper topic, Jeff Martini shot several this weekend while dinning, so I expect I know what will be on the fresh seafood menu at The MidTown Bistro in N .Myrtle Beach.

"OUCH!!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/11/10
 

A good reason to keep a pair  of pliers with side cutters on board.  Keith fished the Rumble in the Jungle ALL DAY with this in his hand.  I'd be screaming like a baby.  This man is one tuff dude!

"Black Dog's Wahoo" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/10/10
 

Here's a picture of a great wahoo caught with a black/purple "pirate plug" rigged by Andrew Sanderson and deployed off shore of the 100/400 in 81 degree, beautiful water.

In the picture is Casy Johnson, the angler, Molly Garber, Ned Garber and Andrew Sanderson while fishing with Bob Newell aboard Bob's Black Dog.  This is one of two wahoo the crew hooked up with, but the only one boated.  They also caught black fin tuna which made a great sushi and wasabi tray.
