The shark fishing behind shrimp boats the last couple months has been on fire. These pictures below are of David Walker, Ryan Walker and Ryan's friend Noah with a few of the sharks they caught this past weekend aboard the Carolina Cat. Great job guys!
I’m going to go ahead and let the cat out of the bag on this one – this fall I will be reintroducing the traveling fishermen program out of the OIFC. Scheduling and pricing are still being determined but some great destinations are being researched. Venice, LA, Guatemala, and Panama are just a few that are on the list to be visited. If you have any interest in fishing at these destinations please email me at email@example.com. As stated above, pricing and agendas have not been set in stone. However, I hope to have the first trip’s pricing ready for public interest by the end of this weekend. Stay tuned
The 2015 Fall Brawl King Classic Long Sleeve Shirts Have ARRIVED!
A lot of people get very upset when we run out before they are able to stop by the tournament tent- avoid the disappointment of us running out of your size by ordering online :)
How are you planning to win the Rumble this weekend?
Capt. Brant thinks that his kite fishing technique is the best way to go.
What do you think?
I'm adding an internal salt cleanse to year end clean up jobs for rental boats. Capt Rickey said it helped his boat to allow better internal engine cooling- makes sense. Like an enema for your engine!

Clay Morphsis fished with Davis Julian and wor the big reds out at the Jeties this morning while Eddie and Edward fished for blues. My crew headed out but the bite had shut down.
****Word to the wise. Be sure to have your S. C. Fishing License if you fish there. The DNR was checking today in an unmarked boat that looked like everyone else. Got to give them respect, they are protecting our resource.
Meanwhile, Back at the dock, Capt. Papa'd and Brian Lovinggood were installling the new sound system on the Do Work/OIFC Contender.
Thanks for the Report Joe!
~~Cpt. Jacob, you were right! Z breeze hit it again around noon time today...dale & I each caught our first bulls of the season. Fished it the way you showed me 2 years ago in the penny pincher! I appreciate it! Joe, z-breee....
It is going to be a bit breezy over the next few days, but once it calms a bit the bite is going to be on fire folks. Joe and Dale braved the wave action yesterday and pulled a few out. We need more North in this wind and no East winds so we can get after them. I am chomping at the bit myself and can't wait. Come on down! See ya on the water!
~~Daniel Simmons, Mike Ashburn, and I took off for a late afternoon recon mission looking for big drum. We pulled up to the rocks with a boatload of bait and were all alone. After a few hours of bent rods, the tally was at least a dozen safely released with half of the fish measuring over 40". It's on!!

Corey Bellamy with a big Drum he just sent me a pic of from this morning. He's at Little River jetties and they have also been biting under Pogy loss off Long Beach. Game on! Capt. Brant McMullan
Act Now! One slot left open for my backwater class on Sept 25th and 26th. Students will meet Friday afternoon the 25th at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center around 5pm for a quick lecture, Q & A, and cast net lesson. We will fish for 8 hours on Saturday targeting flounder, redfish, black drum, and speckled trout. It is a great time to be on the water as the success rate should be high. Many of our predator fish are showing up and actively feeding on all the shrimp, mullet, and pogies in our water right now. Call now...910 575 3474...See ya on the water!
Team Do Work/OIFC met up with Team Mr. Goodhands/OIFC at the jettties on the perfect tide and wore the ribbonfish out. This is perfect timing with 3 major King Tournaments just around the corner. I don't know about the Goodhands Crew but we ended up with 27 in a short period of time. The best way to fish for them is Voo Du Shrimp or Rapala Gotch plugs. Be sure not to touch them and mix a batch of brine to drip them in. They are a blast to catch! Unless you are flounder fishing. Then they become a pain.
Tim Gallimore (Galimore Building Co, Shallotte, N.C.) and his bride to be sunk out Sunday afternoon for a little red drum action. After floating the net with pogies near the OIFC we they followed the Do Work/OIFC crew southwest to the Jetties. With a WNW breeze and calm near shore conditions we decided to run outside the inlet and try our luck with some ocean reds. We picked up this pair, a 36" & 37" with in an hour. Both were safely released to bend a rod another day. The bite slowed and we headed back to dry land. Always a pleasure seeing the Beck crew on the water.
Thank you for the great report and kind words my friend. May I add, Jeff threw our big pogie net in the Waterway and loaded it with mullet minnows and shrimp. Also the Jetties were full of ribbon fish and mullet. I got pictures of Camdyn catching the ribbon fish but non of the ribbon fish. We were using silver and blue, silver and red Rapala and Voo Du Shrimp. We tore the ribbon fish up!

BOAT AND BOAT OWNERS NEEDED TO GET NEW HIGH SCHOOL FISHING LEAGUE UP AND RUNNING
Brunswick County High School Fishing League is established and up and running. This year West Brunswick High School and Brunswick County Academy opted into the inaugural year of this one-of-a-kind, never-done-before, high-school, saltwater fishing league. Currently faculty leaders have been established at both schools and fishing clubs have been formed and officers elected. Student club members are working to form their two-man teams and reports at this point are that both schools are seeing strong interest and participation.
EVENTS: They will be inshore fishing events targeting Speckled Trout, Flounder and Redfish. Prizes will be awarded for the largest single fish from each species with the overall winner being determined by the heaviest combined weight of one fish from each species. *In order to qualify for the overall win, a team must weigh at least two of the three eligible species. Teams must leave from any port/ramp/dock with Brunswick County and may travel to fish anywhere they want by boat, no overland transport. No fishing lines may touch the water until 8am (cast netting is allowed) and all boats must travel by water, no overland transport, to the OIFC for weigh-in dock and present fish between 3pm and 4pm.
FIRST EVENT: Saturday, October 17th
WE NEED HELP: The premise by which this program will succeed is through fishing community involvement and support. We need people with boats suitable to target Speckled Trout, Flounder and Redfish and with time to give up a day to captain/chaperone fishing teams of 2 high-school students for their day of competition. We currently have 11 boats verified for October 17th, but we need 20 boats. When I announced the concept of this program months back there was a ton of "lip service support", but now its time to commit. There are kids wanting to participate but not enough boats committed to be able to accomodate. This program is the first of its kind to introduce competitive saltwater fishing as a sanctioned high-school sport. Brunswick County can set the standard for what is sure to be a growing program.
