Good job to OIFC teams for placing well. 6th and 8th overall: Team OIFC and On A Mission/OIFC. Also Hot Hooks, Mark Coley and Scott Quaintance from OIB in 9th
Team Do Work/OIFC didn't set with world on fire, only weighing in a 17.48 lb king. But it was a learning day for the youth aboard. Jacob Utley fought the fish and Camdyn actually gaffed it.....her 1st. I hope they get the big one today.
The 1st 2 pictures are by Ryan Stevens.
I am proud to day the top 4 Jr. Anglers are from Brunswick County. Three of the four attend Union Elementary School, one of the four just graduated from Union and attends Shallotte Elementary School and three of the four are on Team OIFC!!!!!
They are, left to right.:
Cayson Coley 2nd place

Congratulations. And grown ups, get your children fishing!!!
The 1st two pictures are of Courtney Ripple Gray and her husband, the studly Tim Gray of Team Beeracuda. One is Courtney with her king she caught at Morehead and the other is with her driver. The final pictures are of Team Get Floor'd with some wahoo they caught Wednesday up there. By the way. The spot are running in Morehead.
Had to add Ryan Stevens and his king in the last picture. They are there folks!!!
Capt. Jeff and Capt. Rickey arrived in Morehead with the Do Work/OIFC Sunday afternoon just in time for the leaderboard posting of the Troopers Assoc. KMT. Along with Timmy Clemmons we went bait catching Monday and were joined by team mate Jay Utley Tuesday for some more bait catching. Pofies are thick along Emerald Isle beach in 8 to 20 ft. of water. You better have a good net. Theses boys are big and fast!!! Today (Wednesday), Capt. Rickey had to make an appointment in Wilmington while Jef, Jay and Jon Hayes did some fishing. They didn't fair too well but some other boat who were scouting did. The ocean about 20 miles out was a little bumpy.
I saw a ton (a NC Unit of Measurement) of boats on 17 headed to Morehead as I was leaving. Looks to be a good crown. I will be back up there tomorrow for the Captains' Dinner and hope to have some pics.
Congrats to all the teams that qualified to fish the SKA King Mackeral National Championship this weekend in Morehead City. Teams from all over the southern US will be participating and hopefully a NC team will continue the domination of this event. Brant and Amy are running the OIFC World Cat up there this morning[our Yellowfin got sold] and Rube/Barrett/Caroline/Brayden will join this evening. Our team is comprised of Grandpa Rube, sons Brant and wife Amy and Barrett, 10 year old Caroline and 6 year old Brayden; and cheerleaders Barretts wife Stephanie and kids Blakley and Annabelle.. This is the team that has won this thing 3 TIMES!. Wish us and all the other local teams luck!

Congratulations to Team Get Floor'd/OIFC for their 10th Place in the in Swansboro 50 KMT!!!!
Below are pictures of Chad Rowe fishing with Brandon Sauls today. Note the NICE trout. Brandon said it was low tide at Georgetown, but this trained reporter thinks it was high tide at Little River.
~~~~This weekend is the last chance qualifier for many SKA teams hoping to be able to fish the National Championships this year. Division 1 wraps up with the North Carolina Troopers Association’s tournament in Morehead City, NC. None of the teams in division 1 has 3 fish on the board, so it is really wide open and should be an exciting weekend. We wish all the teams the best of luck this weekend.
One division 1 team that not sweating qualifying this year is currently sitting in 2nd place and just 6.55 pounds out of 1st is Coming In Hot. This team is led by Ashley Widenhouse and his crew consists of his son Blake, his brother Gary, Gary’s son Keaton and a family friend Bryan Russell. This team started in 2013 after buying a Sea Hunt Gamefish 27 with twin 250 Yamaha's. In 2014 the team made their first trip to the National Championships and finished 27th in the open class. The most impressive part of being currently 2nd is that it’s the team’s first year fishing in division 1. The team is sponsored by Sea Hunt Boats, Simrad, Frigate Gear, Yeti Coolers, Ocean-Tamer Bean Bags, Saltlife Optics, Surf Monkey Wear, Yamaha Outboards. Of course Ashley says that none of this would be possible without the support of his wife, Kelly. Be sure to check out Coming in Hot on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/Coming-In-Hot-Fishing-Team-643508309006559/photos/ and on Instagram @coming_in_hot_fishing_team. Stay tuned in this weekend to see how the division 1 race ends up.

The north winds have allowed the backwater captains here at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center to hit the beach several times this past week. We have enjoyed days with multiple hook ups on giant bull redfish. Some large sharks are in the mix and even a surprise 36 pound cobia showed up this week. Fishing in the bait pods can be very exciting as you just never know what might end up on the end of your line. Don't keep watching from the side lines. Give us a call today and lets go get in on the action! See ya on the water!
Tim Sawyer caught and released this 40" redfish off the surf this morning. Good way to spend a beautiful morning!
