"Woke up to a Calm Ocean" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/02/15
 

Woke up at day break to see calm conditions. It is the end of the school year for my 7 year old son, so I decided to keep him out of school. You don't get too many days the ocean is that calm and you don't have something else going on. Jake and I caught blue fish, spanish, and sharks until our arms hurt. The menhaden were thick in about 35 feet of water with sharks, spanish, and blues feeding on them hard. I am amazed nothing else was there, but it was still lots of fun to watch my son freak out on all the action. Great day on the water and memories that will forever be fresh on his mind. See ya on the water!

"Mahi fun" | | 06/02/15
 

I assembled a willing crew and we set out for glory yesterday. I wanted to find the east side of the stream. 135nm later we found it. The edge was not made up very strong which is what I was hoping for. It pretty much looked like the edge on our side and the fish pretty much acted the same. I had visions of fish begging to jump in the boat. It was a slick calm day and relaxing, and that was nice. Been there done that!

"ON FIRE" | OIFC World Cat / Carolina Cat | 06/01/15
 

The Gulf Stream fishing has been on fire lately. Jason Holland and his crew joined Sean Morris and I on a trip down towards the Winyah scarp on Saturday (5/30). The action was non-stop. Double and triple hook ups occupied Jason’s crew for the majority of the day. Total count: fifteen mahi, two wahoo, and four blackfin tuna. I wil be venturing back to the blue water tomorrow. Should be back around 5:00pm - stay stuned.

"Blue Water Report" | Do Work / OIFC | 06/01/15
 

If you see a beautiful new boat on the water it may be Bob Newell's 32 ft Sea Vee the Retriever.  Bob and his crew consisting of Edwin, Newell, Ian Ballatine, & Lee Forbes  fished from the 100/400 to the Blackjack.  They had 3 wahoo, 1 tuna and 10 mahi. 

Chris Campbell said he had a long day picking at the fish at the MacMarlen Hole. He said he lost 2 at the boat when they threw the hooks and had 4 or 5 short strrikes.  Looked like a good day to me bro..

"Fisherman's Post Tournament" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/31/15
 

~~I really felt like we struggled all day in the tournament. We struggled to catch bait. We struggled to keep the boat in position. We struggled to hook and land a flounder. We caught lots of flounder, but many of them were short of the keeper mark. We stayed in places much longer becuase we kept getting bites thinking Mr. Big would show up, but our largest flounder was only 19 or so inches. We had to pull anchor and head for our red drum spots as the tide was getting right. First cast and a 28 incher jumped all over it. TOO BIG! Can't catch a flounder big enough and now can't catch a redfish small enough. That would be a great charter fishing day, but we needed a tournament fish. We doubled up with a short redfish and another 28 inch fish. Hooked up and broke off on the oysters. Got another bite and saw the fish surface. He looks perfect! We fought the fish all the way to the boat and one final headshake sawed the line into right above the hook. Needless to say, the air had left our sails. It was getting hard to stay focused, but we managed to get three more lines set. We double up. Jake's fished looked smaller. Scott's fish rolled and looked good. We quickly landed Jake's fish and quickly released as it was short. Scott kept working on what appeared to be a good looking fish. We GOT 'EM! We measure him twice, three times, maybe even four times flipping each time. He was rubbing the line on one side, but a good quarter inch short of 27 inches on the other side. We put him in the live well. We set out lines one more time and Jake drilled a respectable 24 inch fish. The tide stopped and so did the redfish bite. We debated as we measured our large redfish several times checking to make sure he was legal. Well, as luck would have it, we got checked by Marine Fisheries. I told Scott we are about to find out if he is going to pass or not. The officer measured the fish on both sides and noted that I needed to make sure his mouth was closed and to pitch the tail. I guess in all the excitment I didn't notice the fishes mouth was open. Once closing his mouth he was a good quarter of an inch in the slot on both sides. He's a winner! That is a stud no doubt. We could not have been more pleased. Shocked! Surprised! Our slot fished weighed 7.62 pounds which is great for our area. I have only seen a few bigger than that and that is usually in the fall time. We did finally pull out a 20 inch flounder at 2.97 pounds and that was good enough to put us in the top spot! I expected a better flounder and didn't even think we had a chance at catching a drum. I guess that is fishing and you just never know. See ya on the water!

~~Fished the Fisherman's Post Ocean Isle Inshore Challenge today with Clay Morphis We were not the champs, but we were not losers either. We landed a 5.71lb redfish and a 3.08lb flounder for a total aggregate weight of 8.79lbs which was good enough to place us 3rd overall in the aggregate division! I take that for a fun day of Saturday fishing!
--Thx for the report Brandon

"World Cat Action" | | 05/28/15
 

This morning Terry Craig and his party joined captain Sean and myself on board the WorldCat for a six hour trip. We found bait in 20 feet of water just off of Ocean Isle Beach and then proceeded offshore to 60 feet of water. Almost immediately upon deploying our first bait we were hooked up to our first king mackerel of the day. The action continued steady for the next couple of hours, during which time we boated several king mackerel, lost a couple to a big tiger shark and then was rewarded with a nice cobia. Young Jeremiah caught his first king mackerel today and then proceeded to assist the adults and catching the rest of our fish.

"Citation Speckled Trout" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/28/15
 

~~For years, a friend from years ago has been trying to arrange a trip with me. Life catches up with us all and sometimes other things take priority over fishing. Joe Collepardi finally got to get on the water with me this past weekend as things lined up perfectly. Joe is a great man with a big heart and the trip really had very little to do with him. Joe has been taking care of a young lady for years and see has become more like a daughter to him. This young lady will be getting married in the near future and asked Joe to walk her down the aisle. What an honor! That says a lot about a man's character. Joe's soon to be, sort of son-in-law is what this trip was all about. Andrew Dodson drilled some nice flounder and hammered a North Carolina Citation trout. Not a bad day! See ya on the water!

"Fisherman's Post Flounder Tournament" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/27/15
 

It is flounder time! I struggled last year to even catch a keeper before the tournament. We did well last year in the tournament despite not having much confidence. This year I have caught plenty of keepers and even some nice ones in the mix. Honestly, that scares me a little bit. However, with that said, the flounder bite seems to be spot on right now and some really nice fish are hanging around. If the stable weather forecast holds together things should be really good this year. Come on out and join the tournament. You can enter in person at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center or go online to www.fishermanspost.com to enter your boat. Best tournament advice that anyone can give you is to go ALL IN, enter all the categories. I see it every year, someone catches the big fish, but did not get in the TWTs (Tournament with in a Tournament) and 2nd or 3rd place goes home with more money. See ya on the water!

"Redfish Action" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/26/15
 

The redfish have been giving me the cold shoulder for the last few weeks. I was finally able to make a couple of teenagers happy with a few line screaming reds yesterday morning. It appears that the bite is pretty good around the Little River jetties and towards the Cape Fear river area. Our area should start to fill in as that is the usual progession to our area. The fish always show up to our South and North first. Crazy! but that is just the way it is. See ya on the water!
