"Diaz trip follow up" | OIFC | 11/25/15
 

We got'em! King bite was good at the Atlantic Ledge. Water temp was close to 70. The area is loaded with cigar minnow schools, and I did jig some up and use them, but most of our fish preferred dead Cigars at 30-50' depth. These were good eating size fish in the 10-15lb range. We need the weather to cooperate a little better! Good luck and Happy Thanksgiving Capt. Brant McMullan

"Bluefin Tuna BITING" | | 11/20/15
 

OIFC is ready for Bluefin season. We have Large Ballyhoo, 170# and 200# fluorocarbon, Bluewater Candy JAG 3 heads in the hottest colors, OIFC custom Bluefin stand-up rods, Momoi Diamond wind-on top shots in 130# and 200#.......... WE GOT IT! The Bluefin Tuna bite has begun early this year as boats have had relatively good success fishing out of Morehead City over this past week. Certainly no one can predict what the season will bring, but Bluefin biting this time of year and the average size of fish in the 80 inch range is what we used to see back in the prime, early to mid 2000's. Maybe, just maybe this is the reboot of the once incredible fishery. And even, better, maybe this means the Bluefin have a shot at making it to Ocean Isle Beach again! Capt.

The trick to finding the Bluefin in our Brunswick County waters is to get fishermen on the water searching for them. Anywhere along the west side of Frying Pan Shoals is where they should be. The Fairway Buoys, Raritan, Horseshoe/ect. Look for Gannets diving, porpoises and whales. If you see that you are in the right spot. We all had a ball a few years back when we found them here in our waters, and actually had a better bite than at Morehead. Maybe this is the year they will come back.

"Get'n Bent Fishing Team" | Do Work / OIFC | 11/17/15
 

~~1 hr ·


We were at it again this past Sunday. Since King Mac season ended a few weeks ago, I have been itching to get to the Bluewater to try and bloody the boat with a Wahoo. Sunday looked like it was going to be pretty good(weather man lied!!, but it wasnt intolerable). Hunter, good friend Matt Owens and his son Mason loaded the Get'n Bent around 6 am and we started our trek. This was Masons first trip the the stream, So I had my hopes high that we could get him on his first Pelagic species. I took it easy running out trying not to stir the boat to much with the lil man on board. We arrived around the Blackjack 9 ish and deployed lines. It was a slow start for bites, but the ocean was very alive, so I was hopeful. We seen a pod of Dolphins jumping and playing, a couple massive Sea Turtles, an acre long school of jellyfish, a couple Man-O-Wars, and more tiny little flying fish than I have ever seen. We crossed a small mark way down and a little patch of grass and finally the long line started to pull, ever so gently.... It wasnt the blistering screem of the reel I was hoping for, but after a minute or two the acrobats started from a spunky peanut dorado(mahi). Mason got to handle the reel first and made pretty quick work of it, getting the fish in the box after a quick pic. We redeployed lines and started circling the bait. Not long and the rigger line went off and the reel screamed-- WAHOO... We had to put Mason back on the reel for this fish. Making his first stream trip awesome for him(HE IS HOOKED!!). Mason did work with the rod in the holder for 10-15 minutes and then the fish came to the surface behind the boat. We let him work the reel all the way to leader, then sunk the hook in the HOO. A respectable first wahoo for a 9 year old, Mason was lit up as bright as the 30lb fish. It was high 5s and I think a little tear in Dad Matts proud eye. We set the spread and in short order were hooked up again. Matt angled a nice 57 lb wahoo that made a long agressive run away from the boat. Once boat side, we all got a excited to see the bright stripes of another beauty-- I sunk the gaff in and in the box he went!! We had a couple short strikes and one fish that skied on the long line 6-8' out of the water. He was HUGE and nothing less, made a screaming run and then the rod straightened and line went limp..... reeled it up and the fish broke the crimp on the rig, taking a piece of lip jewelry from the Get'n Bent back into the wild deep blue. We reset lines and figured we would give it a few more minutes before taking the long ride back. It wasnt long and we had a double up of screamers. I cleared lines and had mason slinging ballyhoo rigs all around as Matt and Hunter cranked to keep the fish on. A true chinese fire drill ensued..... The fish crossed eachother, anglers were swapping and lifting rods over and under, passing and straightening lines out. We finally got both fish straight out behind the boat and it looked like the boys may manage the fish. Then Hunters fish ran right back across Matts and the lines got together. Within just a few seconds Matts line went limp..... Hunter continued to fight the fish on his line. Matt got his line back and we seen it was cut off. Hunter angled his fish to the boat and Matt sunk the steel in the biggest Hoo of the day. A nice 60 lber. On that note we cleaned up and pointed the boat to the inlet. A great ride and beautiful sunset on top of an awesome day in the stream... Sundays cant get much better!!!

Having witnessed the weighin I can tell everyone out there that this is one of the most awesome events I have seen and I am very proud of what Brant, Fred David, and Rusty and Carol Petra have accomplished in creating this venue. We all believe that fishing is one of the most important character building programs out there, and what the team has done is establish fishing as a Brunswick County School system approved activity. The look on the kids faces at weighin was priceless as they beamed with pride. The real heroes of this deal are the local captains who have volunteered their time and their boats to give these kids the opportunity to experience fishing. Going forward, it is obvious there is going to be more and more interest from the kids to participate, which means more captains are needed. Great work Brant/Fred/Rusty and Carol and all the boat captains. You should all be very proud of what you have done with this! Rube McMullan
