"Ribbonfish" | Do Work / OIFC | 09/15/15
 

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.

"Ocean Drum" | Do Work / OIFC | 09/14/15
 

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!

Tim, Nice red drum, however, your bride to be is far too pretty for you!!! Glad to hear you are finally getting hooked but i sure hope your bride to be likes to fish. Went fishing yesterday (9/15). Ran all the way to Yaupon Reef but no flounder and only one blue fish. On the way back, we trolled off the Holden Beach Water Tower and managed to catch 2 Spanish Mackerel with no birds showing. Good luck to you and your bride to be!!! Steve

 The "Rob's Bait Pens" is planning a trip to the Ocean Isle Fishing Center to deliver a load of his top-notch custom bait pens.  I am trying to get him here before the tournaments start the last week in September:  Rumble, Open, Fall Brawl, Nationals....... The pens are incredibly effective for keeping but, but they are $$$$ to pay shipping on.  Thus, Rob makes a couple trips each year to bring a load of his bait pens to OIFC customers so they can skip the shipping cost.  Below is his list of available pens.  For Bluefish and Pogys, most get the round 48" x 48" or the oval 60 " x 36" x 36".  EMAIL or Call Brant at 910-367-2945 if you want to order one of these.  ALL ORDERS MUST BE RECEIVED BY MONDAY, 9/14.

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. 

IF YOU HAVE THE BOAT AND A DAY TO GIVE, EMAIL CAPT. BRANT BY CLICKING HERE.  YOU WILL BE CONTACTED FOR FOLLOW UP INFORMATION AND COORDINATION.  THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION.

"Spreen Crew on the Scene " | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 09/08/15
 

Paul, Jack, and Will Spreen and Dean (Will’s friend) joined me on a four-hour shark trip on Sunday (9/6). The action started out fast and furious with Dean and Jack bringing in a couple nice Spanish mackerel. After the mackerel action slowed we decided to shark fish for the rest of the trip. Unlike the morning trip, the sharks seemed to be a bit shy with only having four total bites. However, Will and Dean wrestled this healthy black nose shark back to the the boat. It’s always a good time on the water with this crew. Great job guys.

"White Marlin adventure" | | 09/08/15
 

One life moral I work hard to live by is to maintain schedule flexibility. Too often I have someone trying to schedule an appointment weeks let alone days ahead. My general reply is "so long as this fish aren't biting, I'll be there." I got a call yesterday at 3pm from Austin Eubank (HammerTime Sport fishing) that the white marlin were biting out of Oregon Inlet and did I know anyone who wanted to come up? Hmmmmm- a quick call to the Mrs. and by 6pm the fam was in the car headed to Oregon Inlet- Brant, Amy, Caroline and Brayden. Brayden is a huge fan of big diesel boats, he calls them "marlin boats"- and he is determined that we r going to have one. Until then, it's nice to know good people who have them. Anyway- the ocean was beautiful and the fishing was good as we went 8 for 14 on white marlin today. The fleet of impressive sport fishers were hard at work plowing the seas and working on the white marlin with a few sails and blues mixed in. White Marlin are a great challenge as they are fast and finicky and successfully dropping a circle hooked pitch bait to one provides satisfaction no matter how many times you do it- because guaranteed you are going to whiff as many times as you hit! Thanks again to Capt. Austin Eubank and his mates Doug Southworth and Chris Eckert. They showed us a good time on their 54' Spencer HammerTime. Austin said the fishing should be really hot for the next month and he's looking for people to come up and fish with him out of Pirates Cove at Oregon Inlet. Give him a call, but don't wait!! 910-409-0146 Capt. Brant McMullan

"Sharknado report" | | 09/07/15
 

> Hi, > After seeing the pics from oak island, I figured I'd share what we caught off the west end last weekend. We saw sharks similar to the pics from Oak Island that were posted today. Not quite at the shore, but shallow enough I saw full dorsal fins out of the water 2x before catching one. I thought I'd share my pics. I don't know if you'd post them (I don't want to scare off swimmers or tourists). I didn't put the pics on our rental home's webpage. I have been trying to catch a shark for a few years. This year it finally worked out. It was a little over 6'. Guessing it was a Copper shark? I was expecting a black tip or a bull. I had to look it up. We didn't get any hits on mullet. We caught it off a small blue we caught earlier in the day. We revived it and let it go after a few quick pics. > Allison Dowd > > > > > > > > > > Sent from my iPhone

"Gulf Stream Friday" | | 09/07/15
 

Report from Rich Carcich: > > Back to the Gulf Stream (Steeples) on the MY TIME TWO run by Capt. Scott Myerson. Flat conditions most of the day. Only a few bites but added two more Wahoo to the loser’s locker. Red and black chugger was the hot rig, small and medium ballyhoo, in about 215 ft. Where’s the TUNA? Great day on the water. Brent and Miller did a great job running the back of the boat. > Capt. Scott Myerson > Capt. Rich Carcich > Brent Downing > Miller Diggs > >

"Spanish de'jure" | | 09/06/15
 

Capt. Chris asked me if I'd believe him if he said the Spanish Mackerel and sharks were nearly jumping in the boat? He said it's the best nearshore fishing we've had so far this year. Catch a kid of Spanish for dinner then battle 50-100# Blacktip Sharks until the crew give up. Am trips- we don't keep the Sharks, Spanish are for eat, Sharks are for fun
