"Congratulations Joe Winslow" | Do Work / OIFC | 11/22/16
 

We at the SKA wanted to express our congratulations to Captain Joe Winslow of the CCU Saltwater Fishing Team.  He is the 2016 Hall of Fame Inductee.  

“Fishing is a humbling sport. It teaches you life skills like patience, hard work, humility and teamwork.”  That’s what this year’s Hall of Fame inductee said!  No stranger to the kingfish community, so it should be no surprise that Joe Winslow, one of the most dominant Carolina King Mackerel tournament fishermen, is receiving this honor tonight.  Dr. Joe Winslow starting teaching at Coastal Carolina University back in 1997 working as the Director in the Office of Online Learning from 2013-2016 and recently transitioned back to a normal professor in order to have more free time. In 2008, six students approached Joe and asked if he could teach them how to fish in the area. Agreeing to do so, the official club was born! Today the current roster holds almost 60 current CCU students. Joe takes club members on fun fishing trips when the bite is hot so students watch him in action and hands-on learning.  He takes a select few along with him to fish SKA tournament seasons. This year, Hooligan has had 1st, 2nd, and 4th place finishes in the past 4 tournaments, claiming the number one spot in Division 9.  Joe also teaches online and distance learning so when the fishing club hosts their annual seminars, he can live stream them for people across the country to watch.
James Coleman, CCU fishing club president said this about Joe: “Joe Winslow is an outstanding fisherman and mentor who is very knowledgeable and has achieved so much in his career. Myself and others can always count on Joe for guidance, fishing related or not, and he is always honest and kind. Without Joe our club of fishermen here at Coastal Carolina University would only be a fraction of what it is today and we greatly appreciate him and everything that he has done for us since the beginning."

Congratulations Joe!!!

Here is a photo of a 33lb King caught at Frying Pan Tower on Saturday 11/19/16 on the "On the Dot" vessel owned by Paul Cochrane of Charlotte, NC while
fishing with a group of friends.
King was caught on live bait rig using a live blue fish. Seas were a little rough but warm at 77 degrees.

 

Great job Guys!

"Thanksgiving Holiday SALE" | OIFC | 11/21/16
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

 

           


Big Fishing Weekend Ahead

 

Inshore:  Capt. Jacob and Capt. Jeff both report extremely good fishing for Speckled Trout, throwing in quite a few Flounder, Red Drum and Black Drum in the mix.  Hot spots have included Saucepan Creek area, Shallotte River area up past Holden Seafood, Rock wall in back of Shallotte Inlet, Ocean Isle and Sunset Beach bridges and Little River Jetties.  OIFC HAS LIVE SHRIMP and without a doubt that is a very effective way to fish for Trout and other inshore species.  However, the water has cleared up nicely and the Trout are responding to artificials; and thus with clearer water, you will want to choose colors that are more natural.

Check out this HOW-TO from Capt. Jacob on using artificials for Speckled Trout- CLICK HERE

 


 

 

Offshore:  We learned last year that November is the new October, and this year is no different.  Fishing for King Mackerel, Grouper and Wahoo is very good.  The Kings are going to be holding in the 65'-80' depth range at spots such as the Shark Hole, Jungle, Atlantic Ledge, York Hole and Horseshoe.  The Menhaden have gotten tough to catch on the beach, so I wouldn't spend any time with that but rather focus on using dead Cigar Minnows and jigging live Cigars on the fishing grounds.  The Grouper are in the same places you are King Mackerel fishing right now.  A live Cigar Minnow will get a bite; the key is to be anchored up directly over the structure.  The Wahoo bite has been good at the BlackJack, 100/400 and MacMarle'n ledge areas.  It has seemed the best fishing has been inshore of the break from 140'-180' as of late.  There will also be Blackfin mixed out there as well.

CLICK HERE for How-To on Grouper fishing

CLICK HERE for How-To on Wahoo fishing

  


We hope to see you this upcoming holiday weekend.  Use the sale opportunity to fill someone's or your own stocking.  Tis' the season.

"Revenge" | | 11/18/16
 

Headed up to Hatteras with Brian Allen and friends to r mind myself that King Mackerel fishing isn't hard when you are where the fish are! After a week in Ft Pierce, FL chasing Kings this helps my mental health. SKA Nationals would be a blast on this bite; equivalent to Biloxi. Capt. Brant McMullan

"Finally!" | Tiberias - 22' | 11/15/16
 

Craig Cox and his dad Don Cox joined me this past Friday for a half day fishing trip. This trip had been scheduled and rescheduled three times due to inclement weather. Finally, we caught a beautiful day and it paid off. We caught the majority of our trout on soft plastics. Tossing 4" Bass Assassins in sand trout color produced a two man limit and then some. We kept enough to feed 6 and I kept a few for my family as well.  It was great spending time on the water with great repeat clients. See ya on the water!

"Backwater School was a Success! " | Tiberias - 22' | 11/14/16
 

I hosted another backwater school this weekend with Randy Julian, Steve Forbes, and Tom Knight. The wind blew us off the water Saturday, so we opted to fish Sunday. The winds were much lighter, but the rain showed up a little early. My students were hardcore and pushed through the cool wet stuff to catch some fish. Tossing soft plastics was the main focus of this class. The best color soft plastic was white this past weekend. That report has been pretty steady all up and down the coast. White gulp shrimp, Bass Assassin sand trout, and gulp mullet have all produced a solid trout bite. Another good looking weekend is in the forecast. Make a phone call and lets go fishing! 910 575 3474 See ya on the water!

"1/2 Day Grouper" | | 11/13/16
 

The Bridget family fished aboard the World Cat with Mate AaroN Dew and myself for a 6 hr trip. The plan was to king fish as we worked our way out to 60 feet of water. After checking a few areas with no luck trolling we decided to see if the grouper were hungry. And boy were they. We managed 6 grouper with a few others missed. We only kept two, releasing the others for another day. Sent from my iPhone

Congrats to Team Tuppinsmarine. I can tell you they were fishing in a completely different tournament than the rest of us. Their winning margin was 25+ lbs over 2nd place OIB's Team On a Mission. Congrats to Chris Bryan and his team on a great finish. For Team OIFC, I can honestly say we worked harder for our 11th place finish than some of the other 3 times we won the championship. Fishing was VERY difficult. We had 2 weigh fish the entire tournament, and only 2 weigh fish. It was a challenge to keep at it, but both days in thelast minutes of competition, we pulled out one to take to the scales, and at least showed them we were there. Next year back to Biloxi!!
