"Report from the stream" | OIFC 1- 36' | 06/01/09
 

Had pleasure yesterday of spending day in the gulf stream aboard the Black Dog, with Capt Bob at the helm, mate extroadinare Ned running the pit, me and York as designated winders. We fished the 100/400 and picked away at em till we scored a Carolina Slam with a half doz dolphin, several blackfins, and wahoo. Think most of the other 20+ boats fishing the area had same results. Did see one boat hooked up fighting a very mad marlin as it tore the water up. Not sure who it was but looked like they had their hands full. Appears action has cooled down from the slaughter thats been going on last several weeks, but still plenty of fish for a good days work. Water full of flying fish, so fish should stay in our areas as long as good bait supply is available.  Also, guaranty that anyone willing to put dedicated effort into marlin fishing will score. With amount of blackfin and dolphin around, he's bound to be there too.

Weather looks great for the week. Come on down!

"Bait and Flounder Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/31/09
 

The pogies were plentiful in the ICW and seemed to be the hot Flounder bait.  Also, tiger minnows were easy to find, especially in the tidal pools and  proved themselves as good bait.  Capt. Jeff B. and I scored several Flounder behind Sunset Beach this morning.  Capt. Jeff had the hot  hand landing several keepers and releasing  several undersized.

On the Rodeo front, Jeff Wallen of Myrtle Beach took over the second spot in the Flounder Division with a 6 lb Flounder he weighed in at the OIFC yesterday.  The entries keep increasing!

"Light and Variable" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/30/09
 

The favorite words known to the gulf stream fishermen...light and variable. Those are the words being spoken by National Weather Service for next several days so whatever you're doing back in land needs to be dropped immediately and you need to get down here and take advantage of perfect weather and the incredible dolphin bite thats been going on this spring. We'll be out there tomorrow so we can give everyone a direction pointer tomorrow evening. Come on down. We need to even the score with the fish; they're winning.

"Morning Update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/30/09
 

Anglers report Spanish being caught near the Lockwood on silver/green Clarkspoons Friday.  There are several boats going King fishing today with most talking about going to the Jungle.  Right now (8:20 am) I'm hearing reports of 4 ft swells out of the SW with a north wind close to shore,  However they are saying the further you go out the better conditions are.

RODEO UPDATE:  The total purse is $1,500. But remember I was the one doing the figuring!

"Bottom Time" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/29/09
 

Captain Roger and 1st Mate Turtle took Peter Janich, John Neff, Bob Grimsley, Ron Andrews, Willie Maclean all of Greenville, S.C. and Kevin Kinzie, of Spartenburg, S.C. bottom fishing today aboard the World Cat.  The charter spent the day landing huge Amberjacks as well as Sea Bass.

Meanwhile, Captain Brant and Captain Zach were on the Carolina Cat having a big time of their own catching Scamp Grouper, B Liners, Sea Bass, Trigger Fish and AJ's in the area of the Houston.  Aboard the Carolina Cat were James Brown, Kenny Abel, Terry Sifford, Harold Broadway, Reggie Walker and Theodore Gladden all of the Salisbury and Charlotte, N.C. area. 

It seemed everyone had a good time.  Thanks guys for fishing with Capt. Brant's Fishing Adventures.

"Milton's Big Gaffer" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/28/09
 

How about this stud dolphinfish, caught by Milton Beaty on the "Hook N Up.!"  The boys said it maxed oot a 35# spring scale with ease.  Milton (the guy wearing green) has a house on Raeford St., but was fishing out of McClellanville when they hooked this fish.  He didn't say what he got the bite on, but the lures lying on the dock may provide a clue or two.  Or it could be a Brian Aycock/Jeff Beck style diversion.  Hmmmm...  Regardless, dolphin fishing is hot right now.  I'm anticipating some big point totals from the Bald Head tournament this weekend.

"Spanish" | OIFC 2- 27' | 05/28/09
 

     Today I was fortunate to fish with Chris Kipper and his friends from New York. Our objective was to find "food fish" as they were responsible for dinner tonight. We entered the ocean from Shallotte Inlet and deployed our clarkspoons and trolled to the east along Holden Beach. With very little action, we picked up and traveled on toward Lockwood Folly Inlet. Capt. Roger on board the Carolina Cat called and said he had seen a few spanish jumping east of the Holden Beach water tank while he was looking for bait for an offshore trip. We arrived near the water tank and put our lines in and were immediately rewarded with a nice spanish. We worked the area in 25-35' of water and got steady bites. We were using 00 spoons on No. 1 planers. The water is warming again and beginning to clear up which means the Kings will be biting in our nearshore waters very soon. Stay tuned. Take a kid fishing.

"Ain't it tuff.........." | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/28/09
 

Ain't it tuff being Captain Jeff Williamson (Get Busy).  He just sent these pictures of himself on Jack and Rob Hughes'  61 ft Viking "The Jolly Mon".  They were fishing 100' of 72 degree water for a mixed bag.  Jeff said bait fish and flying fish were everywhere.  Have a great time Jeff, and think about the rest of us.

"WAHOO!!" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/27/09
 

Captain Roger along with 1st mate Captain Zach took George and Tyler Yaken from Florance, S.C. to the Winyah Scarp today.  As can  be seen in the pictures they landed their share of Mah, and finally the Wahoo who had  done as excellent job of eluding  us this season.

Joining the Carolina Cat at the Scarp was the World Cat Captained by Chris Burrows with 1st Mate "Turtle", and their charter  consisting of Eric Iovacchini (can I buy a vowel ) (Ashville, N.C.), Chuck Lynch (Charlotte, N.C.), Jim Day (Athens, Ga.), and Dan Stonburney (Athens, Ga.).  To say the least these guys were a hoot!  They fished using pink and white Islander Outriders but caught their biggest Mahi, you guessed it on a Black Bart Mahi Candy.  Captain Chris said they found a grass patch and wore the Mahi out and threw in a couple of Wahoo for good measure.

"Winyah Scarp" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/27/09
 

The Scarp area has been the hot spot the last couple of days, giving up 20+ Mahi per boat.  The Dolphinfish range from peanut to over 20lbs.  Islanders of most any color are working, with blue and white seeming to be the most productive.

Near shore the Spanish are very active and are best fished with pink Clark Spoon's on #3 planers.

The Cat Boats are headed for the Scarp and hopefully I'll have a report and pictures later today.

"Senior Moment" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/27/09
 

Just in....the 2 fishermen in "the Tubbs Inlet Traffic Jam" report were Kennan Hill and Bryan Freeman.  They ended up with 3 Flounder ranging in the 18.5 to 20  inch range.  Thanks for helping an old guy out.  I really don't have a memory problem.  Thanks for helping an old guy out.  Did I mention that I don't have a memory problem?

"Capt'n Dad" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/26/09
 

Check out Chris Denny, ("Capt'n Dad") getting in on the dolphinfish action Saturday at the Winyah Scarp.  He and his crew ventured out of Little River on their 23' Sea Fox and managed to put five nice gaffers in the box, even without bringing a gaff!!!  They must be livin' right.  Seas are looking ok for tomorrow so I think we'll head that way again.  We'll let you know what happens.

"Inshore Report" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/26/09
 

Hello from the inshore grounds once again.  Memorial Day weekend proved to be very busy for me, as I have been on the water for the past five or six days.  Last week, and continuing into this week, we have been plagued by seemingly unrelenting NE/E/SE winds, with seemed to have made the trout and redfish bite a little tricky.  But, we still managed to catch a few over the weekend. Things in the trout and redfish department should heat back up  once our weather stabilizes.  However, the flounder bite continues to be consistent in all the local flounder spots.  There were a  lot of flounder caught over the course of the weekend by a lot of fishermen.  The overall average size of the fish that are being caught also seems to be improving as there were quite a few fish in the 18 - 20 " and even some fish up to 6 lbs. caught.  So, there you have it, the fish are, here, so all you have to do is come and catch them.

"Dixie Chicken Offshore Roundup" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 05/26/09
 

While Brian Aycock and sons were busy tying up the inshore division  this past Saturday, the offshore boys were at it as well, in some pretty nasty seas.  Here is Mark Poff, Rob Van Blaricum, Butch Gardner, and Carsen Fischer of Mark Poff Yacht Sales Fishing Team, showing off their 50.7# wahoo, caught near the Winyah Scarp on their 35' Jefferson Marlago center console.  In addition to largest fish, Mark and crew took the overall offshore win as well.  A nice reward for braving the seas we found at the break that day.   Congrats to Mark and the team.

"Traveling Fisherman Update" | OIFC 1- 36' | 05/26/09
 

A quick update on the OIFC's Traveling Fisherman program:

We are working on a new trip for early 2010.  The adventure will be to the secluded fertile waters off Panama in Central America.  We are currently researching the new operation, which is a land based fish camp located in close proximity to the ultimate big game fishing grounds.  The cost will be significantly less than past trips and the accomodations, equipment, and service appear to be second to none.  As the trip and dates are firmed up I will post the details.  Keep in mind a fishing get away in early 2010.

"Tubbs Traffic Jam" | Speckulator - 22' | 05/25/09
 

Tubbs Inlet needed a traffic cop today there were so many boats fishing.  But EVERYBODY was pulling in Flounder.  There were several undersized flat fish hitting, but there were just as many keepers.  In the picture below the angler is holding up two 18 inchers. (I apologize, but I"m having a senior moment and their names escape me).  Also shown below is Captain Kyle in action on his Century bay boat Speckulator.  Now is the time of year to book a charter with Kyle or Capt. Jeff Williamson on his "Get Busy" Kenner and get a piece of the action.
