"Redfish???" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/13/10
 

Fished with Mr. Pitt, Adam, and Chad today...Caught trout and lots of flounder again today. We could not find a redfish to complete the slam again today. Heard of some redfish being caught out in the surf. Also saw one get pulled out from under the docks in the waterway. I am sure the redfish are all up and down the waterway in deep water. Just hard to fish the waterway with all the traffic. Will continue looking for the redfish tomorrow. See ya on the water!

""Flounder Pounding"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/12/10
 

Took a father and son out today for there first saltwater adventure. Caught trout and flounder early this morning on artificials. Stephen the son beat his Dad up pretty bad with the artificial fishing. We switched to live bait and Mr. Apt put the hammer down on the flounder. It took Stephen a little while to get the technique down before gaining some ground back on his Dad. We caught 17 flounder, 3 trout, and 2 bluefish, making for a pretty good day on the water. We almost claimed a jet skier today, but I stuck a horn in his ear and he got the message. See ya on the water!

"Banner Day" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/12/10
 

The OIFC Charters had a banner day today.  They both caught a bunch of kings mostly at the Shark Hole and the 90's.  Where were these kings this weekend when we were searching for them during the Got-Em-On King Classic?  Captains Chris Dew and Chris Dawson said the seas were flat and that the kings turned their noses up at pogies and hit exclusively on frozen cigar minnows.

These pictures are of the Seay's, Eric, Nathan, Darren and David of Oakridge Tenn.

"Lesson Learned" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/12/10
 

Captain William Parker, of the "Hound Dog" learned his lesson well!  Last week he caught a 40.6 lb king.  William wasn't in the OIFC Rodeo.  He since signed up and promptly went out and caught this 24 lb king which put him smack in the lead in the king division.  Austin Aycock was moved to 2nd with his 20.4 lb king, and Jeff Beck joined the fray Sunday by weighing in a 19.1 lb king.

Jeff's king was caught during the Got-Em-On King Classic.  Captain Jeff weighed a 28.35 lb king at the tournament, but held on to the 19.1 lb'r to be weighed in at the OIFC for the Rodeo..Good thinking for both William and Jeff

"Inshore Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 07/11/10
 

It seems like summer is literally flying by, and we are suddenly in the "dog-days" of summer, which means the inshore criiters are transitioning into their hot weather, hot water kind of patterns.  The flounder fishing remains consistent, but the fish have been very mixed size wise,  so you just have to keep grinding through the little ones to find the good ones.  That being said though, we have caught some really nice fish this week with several fish in the 3lb range, a couple of 4s, and a 5lber, so there are some nice ones out there.  One thing that is happening with the flounder is that the seem to being headed for deeper waters as they usually do this time of year, as the inlets have been producing quite well recently, and there have started to be some fish on the nearshore reefs and wrecks.  Also, there are still some nice redfish around that are willing to bite, both in the backwaters and around the inlets as well.  The trout have also made a few appearances lately, but as is typical with them this time of year, you tend to catch them one day and not the next, but even if they dont bite, some of your norma trout spots might be worth checking.

"Bottom Fishing" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/10/10
 

Mrs. Amber Simmons reports the grouper bite was hot off of OIB over the 4th week.  Fishing buddies, Kennon Hill, Dr. Bryan Freeman, Brian Robbins, Daniel Simmons (OIB Concrete)  limited out on groupers during 2 fishing trips.  They were using live bait in about 180 ft of water. Family and friends have enjoyed the catch, grilled grouper, grouper bites, grouper salad and grouper formage.

Thanks to Mrs. Amber, she contributes regularly to the fishing reports and helps us all keep up to date on the current fishing happenings.

"Another Carolina Slam" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/10/10
 

Reno and Naylor put a pounding on the flounder...Reno also landed a red fish and a trout successfully completing the inshore slam. Flounder continue to show a consistant pattern...The trout seem to be spread out, but if you work hard you can find a hand full or two between 2-3 pounds. The red fish also seem to be very spread out...I have only been able to locate one here and there. I am looking forward to fall when the reds stack up again to crush the mullet. See ya on the water!

"The OIFC has issued an APB for one of our own" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/09/10
 

If you spend any time here at the OIFC,  there is a familiar face that you undoubtably know.  One of our own, Doppler is missing.  Last night, he was scared by the storm that hit Ocean Isle and was outside.  He broke out of his back yard and has been missing since.  If you are in the area of Bent Tree, on the mainland side, please keep an eye out for him.  He is a Large Golden Retriever with a short summer haircut.  If you have seen him please call the OIFC at 910-575-3474 and let us know.  Thanks for all of your help and support.

"This Week Inshore" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/09/10
 

This week has been extremely productive inshore, especially flounder fishing.  Several "tourists",   meaning those not familiar with the local fishing spots, as opposed to" terrorists" who drive mini vans with out of state license plates and give obscene hand gestures in traffic, reported catching flounder,  sometimes called fluke at the Sunset Beach Bridge.

Jeff Wallen fished the weekend and reported a double slam on trout Friday.  Saturday, he and his son Josh caught 7 keeper flounder before 11 am as well as a 6 lb red.  Some were caught behind Sunset Beach, while others were caught in the Shallotte Inlet.  The fish were caught  on pogies.  The ones he and Josh are holding in the pictures were released.

Dr Wallen sits on a committee for the S.C. DNR.  He said that biologists have told him that the flounder over 16 " are females, and the bigger the flounder the more eggs they produce and the more often they produce them.  Thusly releasing them improves the flounder fishery.

The othe picture is of Captain Jeff Williamson's charterf rom yesterday.  Not too shabby for a half day trip.

Congratulations Miss Lilly.  You and other young folks like you are the future of salt water fishing.

"Four Mile Sail" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/09/10
 

Captain Zach and Captain Steele fished aboard the 36 ft Contender, the "Get Floor'd" along with Grant Boyd and Garrett Fiddynent, both hailing from Atlanta, Ga., Eldon Peters from the home of the UNC Tar Heels, Chapel Hill, N.C. and Garry Spencer from the home of the American Idol star Kelly Pickler, Albemarle, N.C.

Garrett was fly fishing with a pogey for spanish while four miles off shore when a sail fish showed up.  He kept feeding the pogey until the sail finally couldn't stand it anymore and hit it.  After a short fight the sail was along side the "Get Floor'd"  Garrett has some nice pictures which he will forward.  One of the pictures below is of Garrett taking the customary plunge off the front of the "Get Floor'd" for catching his 1st sail.

After the excitement of the sail fish the crew headed out  about 10 more miles where they caught kings and 3 cobia.  The biggest cobia was 33 lbs and took 2 hrs of fighting to get aboard.  They also had a 4th, but he eluded the fish box.  The cobia were caught in the area of the 65 ft Hole.

This dynamic duo proved they can catch quality fish, they also showed their dedication by extending the charter 2 extra hrs. Quality fishing and dedication are only a couple of the attributes of the OIFC Charter Captains.

Congratulations guys on a great day fishing.  I could tell by the excitement on the dock that everyone had a ball!

""Mountianeers"" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 07/08/10
 

First cast for each angler produced a flounder, making for a double hook up. We managed a few more flounder, which were all released. I just did not have it in me to release the 4 lber in the picture below. Captain has got to eat something! Flounder remain to stay consistent, but other fish have stayed elusive. Trout and red fish have been hit and miss at best. Spanish are usually a fish you can always count on, but they are even getting harder to entice. We did hook some red fish today and managed a spanish, but still not the bite I expect. Looking forward to Fall time when the water cools a bit, then hopefully the fish will really eat! See ya on the water!

"40.6 lb king" | OIFC 1- 36' | 07/07/10
 

Captain William Parker of Ocean Isle Beach, Duwane Wood and stepson Caleab White took to the high seas on Duane's 23 ft. Keywest yesterday in search of kings. Caleab caught 3 with the biggest being 18 lbs., and a shark.  William caught 2.  Duwane has been catching the big one that always got away..until now!  He caught a 40.6 lb king!  William said they would have released him, except he was already dead when they brought him along side.  The fish were hitting naked pogies about 25 yards. back.  Their catch totaled 98.7 lbs., which paid for their fuel and fed some hungry mouths.
