"Yellowfin bite on the beach" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/15/10
 

Not to throw spears at the Far Out Shoot Out fishermen, but just weighed a bona fide, verified 28lb Yellowfin Tuna caught at the Christina Ledge by the Carribean Soul, captained by Jamie Milliken and crew. They were King fishing with dead cigars when he hit the prop wash bait. The Christina is almost in sight of land, just beyond the 390/390. They also caught a few kings at the 390/390. Congrats to Carribean Soul on an extrodinary catch!

"New OIB inlet cut" | OIFC 2- 27' | 05/15/10
 

Went out at low tide and checked out cut where dredge has been taking sand for beach renourishment project. WOW! There is a cut lining up with the last house on Holden Beach closest to intercoastal, out to sea buoy that was 10 feet deep at low tide in most places. A big congrats to Town of OIB, Congressman McIntyre, and Captain Brant for working together with the Corp of Engineers to get them to make use of the beach renourishment project to dredge us a fabulous new inlet cut. It's the best it's ever been! Will post the co-ordinates soon as possible and hopefully soon as the dredge is gone, Brant can get permission from Wildlife to relocate the buoys.

The existing inlet is virtually closed up at dead low, so this new cut is very important to all the boaters using Shallotte Inlet. Great work team!!!!

"Kings" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/14/10
 

Capt. Jeff B and I king fished today.  The seas were absolutely beautiful.  We only had a few hours to fish so we elected to not put much effort into looking for pogies.   A good thing, because we didn't find any.

We went about 8 mile out to about 50 ft of water depth.  The water temperature was 70.5 degrees.  Using frozen cigar minnows withBlue Water Candy skirts we set out 4 lines.  Almost immediately we got a bite!  The scream of aSpeedmaster is music to a fisherman's ears.  During our short time out we got to hear that noise several more times, once during a double hook up and almost every time on a green skirt..  All the kings we landed were teenagers.  A great day.

To all the spanish mack. fishermen, we encountered spanish  in 14 ft. of water just west of the Shallotte Inlet while looking for bait and again on our way back, in about 36 ft of water and close to the sea buoy.  Tomorrow Jeff will flounder fish, I'll be at the OIFC Store..Hope to see you here.  Be sure to attend the FOSO Awards dinner Saturday night.

"Friday Update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/14/10
 

The ocean is beautiful and about 20 boats checked out this morning for the Far Out Shoot Out.  For those not fishing the FOSO, the kings were hanging out about 8 miles off shore.  Jeff and I are going to try that today.

Inshore, I've been told the flounder bite is on and told it is slow.  I've also been told the flounder are small.  What does one believe?  Check these pictures out that good friends Tommy Helm and Tommy Lytton sent in.  One of the fish is a 4.8 lb Rodeo Board leader.  Hope to see you this weekend.

"Real Time Update-8:44 am" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/13/10
 

Carolina Cat reports no bait on the beach with muddy water.  Sea conditions are 3-4 ft rollers at his location.  Advised "small boats" exercise caution.  Captains Chris Dawson and Chris Eckert aboard the C. Cat had just set out baits an undisclosed  (to me) location and as soon as I called him for the report he hooked up.

***Jut communicated with the 7th Heaven (fishes in the under 25 in the FOSO). The captain reported surprisingly nice conditions in the Stream.  He'd found 70.5 degree water.  The OIFC's radio can definitely reach out there when conditions allow.

***8:56 update.  The Carolina Cat is about 8 miles out and reports king in the box with the ocean about 2.5 ft.  Said it had laid down.

"Far Out Shoot Out report" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/12/10
 

1 boat fished today- Black Gold- they reported fishing the Steeples area and succeeded in catching the Carolina Slam-Tuna, Dolphin and Wahoo.  They weighed a 15.15 Blackfin, 8.2 Dolphin and 21.1 Wahoo = 44.45 total to take the new overall lead.  They reported sloppy sea conditions around the 3-5 feet, but obviously fishable- good job.

To date, 20 boats have registered.  I know there are more out there watching the tournament and the weather, and hopefully they will decide to join the event.  The weather forecast for Thurs, Fri and Sat is very fishable with winds of 10-15kts and seas 2-4 feet.  It isn't going to be flat, wish it were, but it should be very fishable.  It can't always be easy.  On-line entry is open until 11:59 Friday PM- CLICK HERE to enter 

Current standings:

1st Tuna- OIFC Fishing School- 19.55

1st Dolphin- OIFC Fishing School- 15.55

1st Wahoo- Black Gold- 21.1

Don't forget you have to call the tournament hot line at 910 253 3474 before 8am the day you are fishing to declare or change your fishing day.  Good luck.

Also, looking ahead to the Awards dinner on Saturday PM, I'm hoping to get some donations if any boats have an extra fish or two.  I plan to cook fish and also I'd appreciate if a few of the wives would volunteer to bring a covered dish.  Please call me at 910 367 2945 if you can help with some side dishes - thanks- Brant

"Jolly Mon Advertising Opportunity" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/11/10
 

I am putting the Jolly Mon tournament program together and invite you to join.  I have lots of options to get involved.  I am offering a special package for fishermen who fish the event and who would derive benefit from exposure to the tournament's participants.  The deadline is the end of the week, but if you are interested, there is still time- EMAIL ME for information.

Yesterday I took a group offshore for a Gulf Stream class.  The class decided to try their hand in the Shoot Out, so they entered.  We chose to high speed troll most of the day and caugth Mahi and Blackfin Tuna.  The Blackfin bite was good at the Steeples.  We really worked hard for a big Wahoo and had 1 bite, but we could not pull off the slam to make for a strong Shoot Out entry.  So, the tournament is wide open.  I hear folks complaining about the weather, but the forecast I see shows 10-15kt winds Thurs thru Sat.  So let's go fishing.  Entry into the Shoot Out is open thru Friday, so join.  CLICK HERE to enter-

"Inshore Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/11/10
 

I am pleased to report that things are finally happening on the inshore grounds.  The past few days has produced some excellent fishing for all the target inshore species.  The big news has been the hot flounder fishing that has occurred.  The end of last week was particularly good before a couple of blow days that stirred the water a little.  I know of several people, including myself thankfully, who had double digit catches of flounder.  There of course have been a lot of throwbacks, but there have been some good ones mixed in as well.  I had a 4lber on Sat. and I have hear rumors of fish up to 8Lbs. being caught in the area.  The trout bite has also finally improved, with a pretty good trout bite occurring the past few days as well. The fish have been averaging 2-3lbs, but I'm sure we'll see a really big one any day now.  Finally, the redfishing has remained good, as it has been for most of the year,  there are plenty of reds of all sizes around, in just about all of the usual redfish spots.  So there you have it, winter is finally over, it is time to go fsihing!

"Weekend Fishing Report-Reel McCoy" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/11/10
 

Here is a weekend fishin report...
 
Daniel Simmons(OIB Concrete), Kennan Hill, Steve Austin and Brian Robbins fished on the Reel McCoy over the weekend.  Pictured is  Steve Austin with a big gag grouper. 
 
Kennan caught a 30.7 lb blackfin first thing in 300 feet of water near the blackjack. The guys worked their way in to a weedline  in 160 feet and put 6 nice gaffer dolphin and 4 slinger dolphin in the boat, with the biggest being a 26lb'er. With the dolphin still biting on the weedline, the crew ran out to a likely wahoo spot but couldn't connect with a wahoo. The hi-light of the day was Steve Austin's  37 pound gag grouper brought to the surface in 200 feet of water.  What a fish!  
 
On Friday Daniel and Bryan Freeman ran back out further to the west and got 2 nice wahoos and scared another real bad with the gaff.  Also caught were 11 really nice dolphin, all gaffers, with half of them over 20 pounds.  
 
Two great days of off-shore fishin at Ocean Isle Beach!

"Mahi On A Weed Line" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/10/10
 

Jim Bowen reported catching 7 mahi and 2 wahoo on a weed line near the Steeples. One wahoo ate a cedar plug on top and the other ate a Blue Water Candy Mr. Sparkle in front of a medium ballyhoo on the top.  He had one bite off that took a 32 oz trolling weight he'd just bought at the OIFC.  Sorry Jim, that is not covered under the warranty.  He found a ledge on the way back in and slayed some sea bass.

These pictures just came to the OIFC from "Jimmy".  He said he was fishing a 74 to 78 degree break near the Steeples using Blue Water Candy Bling.  He landed 5 wahoo and 2 black fins.  The wahoo weighed 34, 38, 41, 56 and 65 lbs.  Jimmy said he'd been blue water fishing for over 5 yrs and today was the best he'd ever had.

"Day one Far Out Shoot Out Results" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/10/10
 

Team OIFC Gulfstream School is currently leading the Far Out Shoot Out with a 19.15 Blackfin Tuna and a 15.55 Dolphin.  Team Black Dog is currently in second place with a 13.35 Dolphin.  Both teams had several other fish with the Blackfin Tuna dominating the bite at the Steeples.  One of the crew members informed me that the bite seemed to happen on some kind of green and yellow lure... Capt. Brant? Care to elaborate???

"Just Off The Beach" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/08/10
 

Kevin Sneed headed out this morning to squeeze a couple of hours of fishing in before the wind picked up.  The trip proved to be a great idea as he and his crew caught 2 cobia, the biggest being 39 lbs and a king which weighed @ 12 lbs.  The fish were caught just off the beach.  He also said the bait was plentiful and good sized.  They ended the trip about 10 am due to rough seas.  Thanks for the pictures and report Kevin.
