"Follow up to am report" | OIFC | 05/17/15
 

Video Clip 1


We left late and got back early but it was not without success. As we were running out to do some bottom fishing we stopped on a wreck to jig some grouper bait. It was flat calm and a school of Spadefish rose to the boat to check us out. The kids were very interested and I explained that we had to catch jelly balls to have any chance with the Spades. Well that itself intrigued Caroline and Brayden so they made the call to defer bottom fishing for Spadefish. We ran into the beach and the kids had fun netting up a dozen or so jelly balls. We then went back to the wreck and anchored. I threaded several jelly balls onto a heavy rod and let them float out behind the boat while also cutting and chunking jelly ball. Within 10 minutes the Spadefish were chummed up and ready for hooks. We kept a half dozen for dinner and let the rest go. Spadefish are schooling and residential. When someone sits on a school and loads their cooler they wipe out that population of Spadefish on that location for the year. Don't shoot all the birds out of the covey. It was cool to show the kids and wife a new style of fishing and add it to their fishing knowledge and experience portfolio. Hoping this video attached comes through - shows them chummed up.

"Spanish Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/17/15
 

The weather was too perfect not to go and check on the action just off the beach this morning. Got a later start than I wanted, but I thought the spanish would start to chew once the tide started to fall. Here is what I found. Spanish were scattered and jumping sporadically between 25 and 35 feet when the tide was slack high. They were biting on our top shotgun line with a 2 ounce in-line weight gold 00 spoon trolled 7 miles per hour. We probably caught a dozen or so pretty quickly, but once the tide actually started falling the bite slowed down. The water lost its clarity and perhaps a larger spoon and slower speed might have tempted a few more. Bottom line is the spanish are still here, but the water is still trying to recover from Ana and fresh water runoff from the rivers. The new moon is creating strong tides which will help get some of this water out of here. The strong tide, current, and southerly winds will make the Shallotte Inlet a challenge for smaller boats. See ya on the water!

"Playing on the water" | | 05/17/15
 

It's too pretty not to go fishing. It's been hard to get the family on the same schedule to go fishing but we broke away today. Caroline's request was to wake up at 9 and go bottom fishing. So here we are at 10am depart and heading to yank on some Bass and such. Ocean is nice with a SE swell. I wish we had more days like this!! Mid May to mid June is a peak for a variety of fishing in our area- who knows what we will run in to. Stay tuned I'm mating for Capt Amy today - ??

The Free Spool big wahoo came while high speed trolling along a temp edge in 120'. They nearly swept the events prizes as they entered both TWTs. They won over $10,000. Second place team McAttack won over $4000 and their 59 pound Wahoo certainly deserves mention. *** reminder the top 5 overall finishing teams will be receiving invites to fish the Jolly Mon VIP.

"Shoot Out update" | | 05/15/15
 

Sorry for late update. Remember what u catch, you gotta clean. And thanks to Jeff Williamson for help on the cleaning table as it kept cleaning under two hours- yuk I hate that part! I have not gone through all the entries and reconciled yet but Katelyn Kincer did a great job drumming up entries as I believe we have 38-40 entries. That is impressive and will make the prize pot pretty darn respectable. Standings right now- 7 boats fished today so will be 30+ tomorrow. 1st tuna- Catch 22- 12.65 1st wahoo- OIFC Carolina Cat- 24.65 1st Mahi- OIFC Carolina Cat- 27.25 1st overall- OIFC Carolina Cat- 56.8 2nd overall- Say Ah- 52.65 3rd overall- Catch 22- 44.65 Good luck to all tomorrow. The OIFC cat charter boats will both be fishing the stream tomorrow but not in the Shoot Out. They will be on vhf 19 if you need any help. Also Capt. Barrett will be piloting the Team OIFC boat in the Shoot Out and he is on same vhf. OIFC Carolina Cat today

"Fish report today" | | 05/15/15
 

Capt Derek and I carried long time customer John Holmes and and the MahiWahoo Team aboard the CAROLINA CAT to fish the Shoot Out today. We fished south and stayed in 150-250'. We had Mahi, Blackfin and Wahoo. The Blacfin and Wahoo were smallish but the Mahi size has really picked up since last week- lots of 15+ pound fish. We stayed steady most of the day with the best from 9-11am. I am going to get in and process all the new Shoot Out entries this eve. I will try to update stats from the event this eve and let you know how many are fishing etc. The seas were getting really nice when we left so hopefully it will be nice tomorrow. Good luck to all

"OIFC field trip" | OIFC | 05/14/15
 

Remember in school how great it was to go on field trips?  The places we went were usually boring and didn't have much significance, but no class!!  Brayden's Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Johnson asked to bring her class to the OIFC on a field trip.  Brayden of course tells all his fish stories and talks about his boats and even occassionally butters up his teacher with some fresh fish- and thus the class was interested.  The OIFC staff cooked up a plan to make their field trip more than just a day away from class.

We had the Team OIFC Yellowfin on site to check out, the OIFC World Cat charter boat tours, Hunting sharks teeth in Shark Tooth Island, Cast Net throwing lessons, Rod casting lessons, Crabbing adventures, dock fishing and finally chicken fingers and fries from the Fish Company.

 I really think the kids had a very good time.  The part that I most liked was the dock fishing as the Croaker bite was steady and every child got to catch their own fish.  The best part was that for over half of them, it was the first fish they had ever caught.  And the OIFC was part of that.  The kids made a nice thank you card and we even got a personal letter from one of the little girls talking about her great experience.

It was fun and I hear rumor there may be more field trips as other grades were a bit envious of the Kindergarten class.  And you know Brayden loves that!!

As an Assistant Principal and passionate outdoorsman, reading about this field trip was heart-warming. Instilling students with a love and appreciation of the resources available to them through nature is absolutely one of the most important things we can do. I am glad to see all the different ways the OIFC shows their passion for children. Keep up the good work!

Rube McMullan 05/15/2015

Having been part of the event as one of the 'guides', I can say that was one of the coolest things I have done in a long time. For those of us who have a lifelong passion for fishing, there is no feeling more rewarding than teaching someone new to the game how to catch a fish. That thrill was there for me with 5 year olds or 50 year olds. This has always been the essence of what OIFC was intended to be and IS. Couldn't be prouder! Rube





"Far Out Shoot Out" | OIFC | 05/14/15
 

Tomorrow is last day to enter the Shoot Out.  I keep getting calls and emails asking how many people are in the tournament?  If these people would enter we'd have 30 or more entries -- as it stands I think we've got 10 PAID entries.  The tournament will go on with all teams fishing either Friday or Saturday.

** Remember awards has been changed to Sat at 8pm at Fish Company Liar's Club bar on ground floor. 

Good luck to all

"Far Out Shoot Out - UPDATE" | OIFC | 05/12/15
 

he Far Out Shoot Out- Tuna, Dolphin and Wahoo RODEO is on schedule as planned.  And although eligible fishing days started last Saturday and the weather has certainly NOT been conducive to offshore fishing thus far, it appears the conditions will be improving to offer a favorable fishing window on Friday and Saturday.  And thus the weather will force all participants to fish together in head-to-head competition; the way it should be anyway.

ONE CHANGE:  I had originally planned to have the Awards on Sunday at noon, but the WX looks like Sunday may be nice as well -- I'd hate to have you or for that matter, me, to miss a possibly good day of fishing as they have been so few and far between.  Thus the awards get-together will take place Saturday at 8pm at the Fish Company in the Liar's Club area.  Cocktails and service off of the menu will be available.

Remember to declare your fishing day by 8am of the day you plan to fish by call 910-253-3474-
