I think my link last week didn't work. Check out Chris Campbell's teaser he did for recent No Limits Fishing shoot we did in Guatamala -
~~Todd Tanksy, Bryan Freeman and Graham McNeill went to the Blackjack Hole Saturday.
The bite was not on fire, but thank goodness we made the 2 solid hook-ups we got count.
They were both definitely keepers!
Thanks for the report Bryan!!!
Meanwhile, Team Do Work/OIFC minus me went sea bass fishing in 80 ft of water. The team limited out on keepers pretty fast and were back at the OIFC by 2. I hung at the OIFC taking care of things there. Finally the weather has broke and fishing is in the air!!!
I’m proud to announce that a new Cobia tournament will be coming to the OIFC over Memorial day weekend. This will be a three day, captain’s choice event that will give anglers one last shot at catching and keeping a Cobia before the season closure June 15th. I will start accepting early entries tomorrow (3/12) either online or by calling (704) 616-1615. If the warm weather isn’t making you think about spring, take a minute and visit the Capt. Derek’s Cobia Clash tournament page by clicking HERE.
Also, be sure to checkout the Jolly Mon VIP as well. Information regarding this tournament can be found by clicking HERE. I will begin accepting entries from qualifiers for this tournament on April 1st.

~Eddie Rowell and Darien Crumbley hook up at same time with a pair of reds that hit artificial bait at the jetties on March 6. Fish were released after picture.
******Lesson learned. Please do not hold the reds vertical they will die. It shifts their guts around inside. Hold them horizontal. Not being critical, a lot of folks don't know this.
Probable true for all fish?
The new moon was yesterday and the tides are ripping. The water temperatures are on the rise and are consistently holding in the mid 50's. I expect to see water temps reach the lower 60's by week's end or early next week with the forecast. Redfish are holding really shallow in the backs of the creeks. Trout are hanging around the edges of oyster bars closer to deeper pot holes. A few flounder have also awakened in the shallow warmer waters on the flats. Live mud minnows did not produce the red hot bite I was expecting yesterday. We ended up catching most of our fish on 4" Sea Assassin's in various colors to include: Chartreuse, White, and Albino ghost. The Little River jetties has been seeing some action with folks tossing Vudu Mullet and the New! Vudu Rattling shrimp. Redfish and trout have been the main ones biting at the jetties. It is time to schedule that fishing trip. Lets go! See ya on the water!
We went 14 for 41 on Sailfish. The ocean was slick and the fish were cooperating in giving us shots. I think 15 of those 41 were me trying to catch one on fly, but I finally succeeded. The girls got much better at feeding fish on circle hooks which is a skill for sure. Experience, experience, experience-- we also spent most of the day working on "specialty shot" for No Limits TV which will begin airing the new season in May. We got some good stuff I think. Chris Campbell will be putting together some "teasers" when we return. Headed to the airport now and back in NC tonight. Capt. Brant McMullan
