"Mahi Bite Is On" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/28/10
 

The World Cat with Capt. Chris Dew and Capt. Zach Faulkner headed to the Stream today and found the mahi bite in full swing.  They pulled Islanders and Ceder Plugs and caught a dock cart full of dolphin fish.

Aboard the charter were Rick McCorkle, Jonathan McCorkle, Jake Rigsbee and Nick Appenzeller, all from Charlotte.  Nick had the honors of landing the biggest mahi.

"A little bit of everything" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/27/10
 

Started early this morning looking for a trout bite...caught one keeper flounder and one red barely in the slot on artificial bait. As the tide started to pull out I went to live bait looking for a flounder bite. The flounder are still cooperating pretty good and a nice trout also hit one of my menhaden. Decided to take a rest for some lunch. Waited for my three year-old son to get home from school. We took him out for his first spanish trip. Jake had a blast! Hopefully, June will jump start a better weather pattern. The fish have been tough so far this year, but they are definitly here! See ya on the water!

"Inshore Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/26/10
 

Greetings from the backwaters! The continue to have consistently good fishing on the inshore grounds.  The flounder bite remains hot in all the normal flounder spots.  In addition there have been some really nice ones caught recently, so every bite could be a big one.  The trout fishing seemed to have slowed a little from what it was a week or two ago, but I feel that is due to the full moon and the fact that the fish have their minds on spawning.  There have been quite a few nice trout caught by flounder fishermen recently as well, so just like a big flounder, you never know when or where a gator might bite.  Finally, on the redfish front, it seems the fish have settled into a summertime pattern in many of their usual summertime haunts both along the ICW and in the creeks.  I honestly haven't spent a great deal of time redfsihing lately, but I know guys that are catching them, and I "bumped" a couple bunches of fish while running a creek recently, so they are definitely around. I'm sure a lot of people will have inshore fishing on their minds this weekend, so dont forget that the Dixie Chicken tournament is this weekend, and is basically the premeire inshore event in the area, so if you're gonna fish anyway, considering getting in the tournament, you might get lucky.  There is also an offshore division for you offshore fishermen as well.

"Kevin Sneed's Pictures" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/26/10
 

Kevin Sneed sent these great pictures of a trip this weekend which started out as a mahi hunt.  On they way to the stream he decided to stop and do some jigging.  They got into some amberhjacks, when someone yelled "grouper!". To their pleasure and amazement what they were looking at was a 39.9 gag grouper!    Next they hooked up on this 30+ lb african pomano.  The "Feedin Frenzy" group were using a 7 oz Blue Water Candy pink and white Roscoe Jig.

After the bottom fishing battles they elected to start trolling which yielded 7 mahi.  They finished the day off with some near shore bottom fishing which resulted in beeliners, black bass, grunts and pinkys.  Now that's a day's worth of fishing.

""A Family Thang"" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/25/10
 

While heading out for some in shore fishing with my son Sunday I stumbled upon Ken Rich and his son  fueling up at the OIFC docks.  As always I asked if they'd done any good.  Ken said they had only 2 real small mahi.  I asked to get a picture for a "slow report day".  He laughed and said "let my son hold them, we were just out having fun."

We show pictures of big catches all the time.  But it dawned upon me that one of the most important things about fishing is the quality time we spend with our families...just having fun.  So, congratulations to the Rich duo for a successful fishing trip.

"Cobia Catch" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/25/10
 

Yesterday Captain Chris Dew and Will King, aboard the World Cat fished with Christopher Harich, Jennifer Workman, Christy Workman and Jeremy Lee, all of Morgantown, W. Va.

They found king fishing sized pogies in the ICW just past the Shallotte River and headed to an AR about 8 miles out.  While there Christy and Jeremy tag teamed this 31.8 lb cobia on a pogey.  While they were jigging for more bait the smaller cobia hit..and on a light weight spinning reel.  They lost one cobia in the props and hooked up with a couple smokers.

"Jake Fishing" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/24/10
 

Jake and I got in just a few minutes of fishing right before dark today. Jake had a blast fishing in the livewell full of pogies. Then while helping me reel I felt a flounder tap the bait, we gave the flounder a few seconds and then dotted his eyes! A fresh flounder makes a great midnight snack. See ya on the water!

Tim Coleman stopped by the OIFC to weigh in this beautiful citation 37 lb king he caught while fishing aboard Terry Moore's boat on May 15th.  They were fishing live bait to the north of Ocean Isle Beach.  The guys caught some other kings and some spanish.  The "Big King" was Tim's first. Thanks for letting us weigh your great fish!

""Outta Tha Way Ole Man"" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/24/10
 

The words in the title are those of Brian Aycock after he was kicked to the back of the boat by his son Austin  and friend Tripp Hooks Saturday.  He is just finding out what all us older dads learned a while back.  Brian, pour yourself a stiff Geratol, kick back and stay the @#$% out of the way!!!!

Check out these pictures..That's an idea Brian, make yourself useful and take pictures.

"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.
