"Big Fish Action" | Do Work / OIFC | 10/09/15
 

The 1st picture is of June Strickland and her 39 lb (I think that's what she told me) cobia she caught near the jetties yesterday.  June was at the OIFC along with her husband Bryan (Guy C. Lee) cooking and serving some great food at the Fall Brawl Captains Meeting and Dinner.  I hope they are given the proper appreciation for all they do by everyone as they are being fed.

The 2nd picture is of a 54 + lb wahoo which was brought to the dock during the Captains Meeting.by the crew of the Emma Rose.  The crew was made up of Frank Johnson, Brad Murphy, Adam Williams, Billy Clifford, Jeff Byers,  Josh Ashton, and Brody Heath.  

The last 3 pix are from the well attended Fall Brawl Captain's Meeting.  I do not have an official count but I did see a boat #108 early in the evening so I'd say there was a good turn out and I expect to see some big fish caught near shore.

"Team Profile" | Hail Yeah / OIFC | 10/08/15
 

~~Since it looks like Choice of Two/OIFC is on the fish this week and has to be the early favorite to bring home the victory in the Fall Brawl, I will make them the first daily profile team. 

Choice of Two/OIFC Fishing Team is based out of Calabash, NC and is made up of Corey and Shaun Bellamy, Ryan and Elizabeth Stevens, Eddy Jones and Caleb Hardee.  They fish a 39’ Contender powered by triple Yamaha 300’s and are sponsored by Beck’s Restaurant, Contender, OIFC, Sportsman’s Choice and Smith Outdoors.  Corey and crew are currently in 8th place overall in division 9 and hopefully in place to qualify for the SKA National Championships.  This team is always on the leaderboard and Corey has even been selected for the special advisory boards of some of the most elite king mackerel teams in the country.    Watch out for this team in this weekend’s Fall Brawl and at Nationals in Morehead Oct. 21-24.  Be sure to check out their Facebook Team page at https://www.facebook.com/Choice-of-Twooifc-Fishing-Team-589486577738225/timeline/ and on the OIFC website at http://www.oifc.com/oifc_fishing_teams?id=11.

"Fall Brawl fish report" | | 10/08/15
 

Blues are pretty easy around inlet mouths by trolling Spanish gear in the shallows- 5-15' or so. The Pogies are on the beach, but they are getting scattered and harder to catch. There are rumblings of kings being found in a few different areas, but nothing solid confirmed as everyone is in "pre tournament" hush mode. Something between Christmas Ledges, Cabbage Patch, Old Sea buoy, Ocean Crest, Shark Hole and Myrtle Beach Rocks-all have been mentioned but nothing admitted to ??? Its gonna be a wide open game. One note - I keep hearing guys talk about how dirty the water looks and no chance to catch fish in it.... Do not be fooled. Dark water is not dirty water. The brown water you are seeing is mostly clear, just stained dark. And be rest assured that many big Kings have and will come from that water - likely this weekend. You watch. Good luck to all, see you at the Capt. Meeting tomorrow night. Capt. Brant McMullan www.OIFC.com (910) 575-3474

"High School Fishing Association needs inshore fishermen's help" | | 10/07/15
 

We have 18, 2 person teams signed up from West Brunswick and BCA high schools. We only have 12 boat owners committed and thus we are 6 boats short. The first tournament is next Saturday, October 17th. Fishing can begin at 8am and boats must be back to OIFC by 4pm. Boat owners provide a boat, supervision and fishing support for the two person high-school student team. Boat owners are allowed to fish, but any fish they catch cannot go towards the student's results. Students will be randomly assigned boat owners to fish with. PLEASE - we need your help. ONE DAY to go fishing next Saturday, October 17th. Please email - captbrant@oifc.com if you can join the team. We need to hear from you immediately. Capt. Brant McMullan www.OIFC.com (910) 575-3474

"Traveling Fishermen " | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/07/15
 

Need TWO PEOPLE interested in embarking on a trip of a lifetime to Venice, Louisiana from October 31st-November4th.

Cost is $325 + fuel per person, per day, for a full day offshore (tuna, wahoo, king mackerel.) Near shore fishing full day (BIG keeper red snapper, cobia, redfish) will be $225 + fuel per person, per day. If you are wondering why the two options are offered, we will need to be flexible if the weather does not permit us to get offshore or the crew simply wants to try something different. Keep in mind that in Venice there is always some sort of fishing to be done if we get blown out.

Included in the trip cost: I will provide the boat, tackle, ice, coolers and assistance with lodging and flights. Not included: Flight to and from New Orleans, LA, shuttles from the airport to Venice (about 45 min ride), lodging at Venice Marina, snacks, drinks and any other personal needs such as rain gear. Take a look at http://www.cypresscovevenice.com for information on accommodations. For more information such as shuttles, flights and fishing call Derek Treffinger at 704-616-1615 or email: djt3521@uncw.edu

"Fall Brawl King bite" | OIFC | 10/06/15
 

Looks like the weather is stabalizing this week just in time for the Fall Brawl. My guess is there should be a whole lot of big kingfish showing up in next few days along the beach. They want to be on the beach this time of year and with weather stabalizing they should flood[bad word choice] back in. Add to that the US Open being cancelled and thats a couple thousand more fish out there looking for a #4 treble. As week progresses we'll be able to report on what we are seeing, but best guess is it should be ON FIRE on the beach/riverchannel for the Fall Brawl.

FALL BRAWL KING CLASSIC ENTRY FORM, RULES & INFO

 

 

 


What Does All the Rain Mean to the Kings?

 I remember back in the late 90's when Hurricane Floyd dumped 15-20" of rain on the area and caused major flooding.  The beach waters were stained tea brown for the entire Fall, but once the sediment settled and the water was just stained, the Kings did not seem to mind.  In fact I clearly recall hot bites at Yaupon and Shallotte Inlet during those conditions.  I do not believe we are going to see quite that much rain, but none-the-less, the rivers are going to be flooding and a large amount of sediment filled, fresh water is being dumped into what might likely be a Fall Brawl fishing spot.

 So, how to approach this scenario given the Fall Brawl coming next weekend?  Sediment in the water is the biggest turn-off to the Kings.  The good news is winds never got up over 25 knots, so I'm hoping that we can find clean water in 60+ foot depths or also on the East side of the Frying Pan Shoals, away from the river's influence.  The rain will push all the Pogies out of the Cape Fear River, so there should be good bait along the beach.  IF the sediment will settle out, then I'm looking for fish on the beach from Lockwood down to Cherry Grove.  Sometimes the water down off Myrtle clears up faster.  If the sediment is too stirred, then I'd look at the Shark Hole and Jungle areas or Fairway Ledges.   Good luck to all.  After this weekend of rain I'm ready to get out and stretch my legs and get on the water.  See you at the Fall Brawl- Capt. Brant

"Traveling Fishermen" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 10/04/15
 

I'm convinced that the rain and wind are not going to let up here in soggy Ocean Isle. Therefore, I'm looking for fishermen interested in venturing to the pristine waters of Venice, Louisiana with me. Dates are:

October 31st-November 4th **Need TWO people for this trip. The rest of the dates we will need FOUR.

November 20th-24th

December 11th-15th

December 15th-19th.

 

Cost is $325 + fuel per person, per day, for a full day offshore (tuna, wahoo, king mackerel.) Near shore fishing full day (BIG keeper red snapper, cobia, redfish) will be $225 + fuel per person, per day. If you are wondering why the two options are offered, we will need to be flexible if the weather does not permit us to get offshore or the crew simply wants to try something different. Keep in mind that in Venice there is always some sort of fishing to be done if we get blown out.

 

Included in the trip cost: I will provide the boat, tackle, ice, coolers and assistance with lodging and flights. 

Not included: Flight to and from New Orleans, LA, shuttles from the airport to Venice (about 45 min ride), lodging at Venice Marina, snacks, drinks and any other personal needs such as rain gear. Take a look at  http://www.venicemarina.com/10_accommodations.htm to see where we normally stay. These cabins are perfect for what we’re set out to do while in Venice - catch fish. They are very clean and are a stones throw away from the dock where we’ll be leaving out of.

 

Lastly, I cannot describe to you how enjoyable this trip is. The sights, smells, and solitude is unlike any place I have ever visited. Islamorada, FL was a fun destination, had many attractions and the fishing was a bonus. I would compare Venice to being in another country. The yellowfin tuna bite can be red hot this time of year. During mid October-November the horse mullet begin to migrate out of the Mississippi river for the winter. And instead of twenty-pound king mackerel waiting on them like in Ocean Isle, there are 100-pound yellowfin.

Send interest to djt3521@uncw.edu

The pictures below are of Corey Bellamy and Trask Cunningham at the Jetties yesterday.  Check out the boats in the background!  I hope everyone is as careful in handling these beauties as Corey and Trask are.  It's very important to hold them horizontal so as not to kill or injure them.  Beautiful fish guys
