Bait Report -- Pogies have shown back up as of last week.  The most recent reports were of bait off Holden and Long Beach in 20-30' of water.  The bait is big and a bit harder to catch than normal so carry a fast sinking net.  Also, the OIFC has hand-caught Ribbonfish.

Kingfish Report -- It has been a really tough Summer for King Mackerel fishing locally.  This past week it has been better than it has been, but not where we want it to be; but its moving in the right direction!  There were some good size fish caught this past weekend around the SW Tower bottoms.  The Tower itself is loaded with bait and there have been a lot of smaller Kings in that area.  I have not heard much from the Shark Hole or Jungle as of late, but our charter boats will be fishing this week, so stay tuned to the OIFC Fish Report.  The water clarity is good on the beach, there is bait and we have our first cool front North wind of the year; lots of variables in motion.  Stay tuned.

My class did a good job today learning tips to be better at bottom fishing. We had nice seas but fought a strong cross current which made for good anchoring education. Thanks guys and good job Capt. Brant McMullan

The bottom fishing class was fantastic... excellent instruction. Capt Brant and Aaron were incredible at transferring the class instruction to the water. It helps that Capt Brant did such a great job putting us on fish. We were literally pulling up fish all day. Thanks for a memorable day!





"seasons first cold front" | OIFC | 08/22/16
 

This morning we are enjoying the first north wind of the summer, signaling the coming change of seasons. This "cold front" [high today is 90] hopefully is the catalysit to change the crazy world of fishing we have had this summer. There's been a lot of weirdness in the fishing world.

-virtually no King Mackeral in our waters

-so many juvenile kings that you can't hardly spanish fish

-tiny baby sailfish being caught on clark spoons while spanish fishing[NEVER have seen that one]

So today is a new beginning. North winds today going to north east. Will the magic switch go off and kings will be caught at Yaupon the next couple days? Will they appear at Myrtle Beach Rocks, the 90's/ect?

Standby, we will see, certainly the conditons are right. And hopefully we can report that is exactly what happens in lead up to the rescheduled Jolly Mon King Mackerel Clasic this weekend!

Is that not COOL, goes to show that you never know what is on the other end of the line!!!!!!!!





"Fishing Report" | | 08/17/16
 

The Pogies show and instantly the fishing begins to improve. The weather has also been stable and we are on a full moon, so who's to say what is the exact reason, but things are beginning to look up. Pogies have been from Little River to Southport all week and the Spanish have been on the beach. I am seeing a few more Kings, still not normal levels though. This AM both Capt OC and Capt Derek are running 4 hour nearshore Spanish trips and both have released Sailfish so far- Check these pics out! Flags are flying at the OIFC Capt. Brant McMullan
