"Local Art" | Do Work / OIFC | 12/09/14
 

~~Here I go again touting a local artist. I met Brad PinFish Caudle through fishing and his "day job", not knowing anything about his photography talent. When I friended him on facebook I was simply amazed. I eventually asked Brad to stop by the Ocean Isle Fishing Center and make arrangements for us to sell his pictures. If you have a beach house, a home here, or want beautiful local pictures to remind you of our beautiful Brunswick County check with us at the OIFC. They would also make great Christmas gifts for the person who loves the coast.

We also have some of his works on post cards along with pewter frames with the OIFC logo too.

"Tis the season to be Bluefinning" | | 12/08/14
 

Rumor has it, Bluefin Tuna have been migrating along Brunswick County’s coastal waters this weekend. Fish have been seen skying and feeding on schools of bluefish near local hotspots such as the shark hole, and the 15 mile rock. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has presented us with a typical winter time 20 knot North East wind that is forecasted to blow until Wednesday afternoon. However when this wind does decide to lay down, anyone who has a big enough gas tank to make it to and from the 20 mile range needs to try and find these Bluefin Tuna. They are a highly migratory fish that can be found at a spot 40 miles out one day and 10 miles off the beach the next. Thus, any angler who wishes to fish for these giants has an equal chance of hooking one (notice I said hooking one). The chances of catching one of these behemoths run slim if using improper tackle and fighting techniques to haul these fish aboard. One of the biggest mistakes anglers make when targeting these fish is bringing their knife to a gunfight. Meaning taking their Gulf Stream gear they catch dolphin and wahoo on and hooking a 500 pound fish on it that will literally hurt you if outgunned. Therefore, the easiest thing to do is to make a trip to the OIFC and get the tackle you need to fight these fish properly. We have everything from horse ballyhoo to hook sharpeners. In addition to the vast tackle selection, our employees would be more than happy to assist you in explaining the rigging and prep behind your Bluefin Tuna tackle purchase. So be sure to grab a jacket (because it is still cold and windy), get in your car, and make a trip over to the OIFC to get everything you need to be successful after hooking into a giant Bluefin tuna. The air and water temperature are spot on for these fish especially off our regions coastline. Get ready – they SHOULD be out there. Capt. Derek Treffinger

Don't forget you must have a permit to boat a bluefin tuna





"Stocking Stuffer" | Do Work / OIFC | 12/07/14
 

Am I big on Britt's Bucktails?  Yes I am and for good reason.  Shane is a Brunswick County Boy who knows inshore fishing like the back of his hand.  He uses what he sells.  Shane takes what works for him and sells them locally.  I had a dificult time getting them to sell.  I started tracking Shane's fishing on facebook long before I knew him or that he selsl his lures.  I talked him in to giving me some to try out.  They worked so well that the last time I saw them they were in my Jr. Angler Camdyn's rig bag.

Shane hand makes each rig.  He collects and smelts his own lead and  pours that into molds.  He gets real dear tails from hunters, trims and dyes each one.  Then he wraps the tail feathers and puts the finishing touch on.  I certainly oversimplified the process.  But to purchase a hand made rig that is made to match each "season within a season" in real time is not only a unique art form but is a very effective trout, drum & flounder catching maching.  Any inshore/near shore angler will be a happy camper Christmas morning with these in a stocking.

COMING SOON:  A black/olive because the mullets will be leaving and the glass minnows will be around.

We sold out of Britt's Bucktails yesterday. Shane has told me he will drop some more off at the store Wednesday. He's bringing some of his new color one's that will be perfect in the next couple of weeks.

Video Clip 1


I am saddened to report that OIFC tackle manager Jerode Fox has unexpectedly passed away.  Jerode spent his last day alive trolling the Gulf Stream for Wahoo with me.  The entire OIFC staff is in shock over his passing and we will miss him very much.  Jerode was an easy going and kind person.  He had a passion for fishing that often had him telling tales of past adventures.  His favorite were the many years he spent Bluefin Tuna fishing out of Morehead City.  I think it is very fitting that the very day he passed, the first Bluefin Tuna that have been missing from Morehead for several years, suddenly showed up. 
The OIFC family sends our thoughts to his family as we all reflect on our fond memories of "J-Rod".
RIP and may your new ocean be full of Bluefin and Wahoo. 

** attached is a video that Jerode posted just days prior to his passing - hopefully it will come through.

Sorry to hear about Jerode. Prayers for his family and extended family OIFC.

Capt. Rickey 12/07/2014

J-Rod and I had become friends in the short time I had known him. I had lent him my Grundens for the trip Brant just mentioned. When he returned they were dripping wet and it was cool. We both had a good laugh over how soaked & cold he would have been. It always brightened my day to see him at the store when I came in. The video is one he and I did. It looks like it didn't post but if you click on "video clip 1" it will play. Rest in peace and tight lines my friend.

"Bluefin Recon" | Do Work / OIFC | 12/06/14
 

~~
Today I ventured offshore on the Get Floor'D/OIFC to do a little recon mission with Captain Megan for bluefins. We opted to put lines in just shy of the sharkhole in 59 degree water. Upon deploying baits ( all white Joe Schute's 3oz head, a blue and white islander and a custom all pink islander pro on 200 pound fluorocarbon)  we began to see all the signs we were looking for; a few birds suspended bait, we spotted Dolphins and a whale.There are schools of bluefish in that area (bluefin candy). after trolling for a about 30 mins we saw a bluefin air out on a school of bluefish!  We continued trolling the area hard with no bites. That being said it is only a matter of time before one of these giants falls for a ballyhoo and the game will be on!!! I feel that after this front moving through the conditions will only improve! So load up the big reels, grab a stand up harness and get ready to battle with a true giant!

Seen blue fin skiing last Saturday in 70ft of water. Due south





"Bluefin" | | 12/05/14
 

If you ain't first, you're last. When the Bluefin bite goes down are you going to have what is hot? Capt. Joe Shute has been at the forefront of the Morehead City bluefin fishery for 20 years. He has designed these lures specifically for Bluefin and last Tuesday they were responsible for 4 out of 4 over 100" Bluefin caught out of Morehead. Now I ask, are you gonna be first or last? Now available at the OIFC while supplies last. Also stocked with jumbo ballyhoo and all the necessary equipment. They are out there, we just have to get boats on the water to find them. I'll see you there- Capt Brant Capt. Brant McMullan Ocean Isle Fishing Center

"Bluefin headquarters " | | 12/04/14
 

OIFC is your bluefin headquarters. We are prepping for the bite to begin as fishermen begin to give effort out of our area. We have jumbo ballyhoo, premade rigs and all the necessary terminal tackle to catch a giant Bluefin. And we will be set up as a drop location to bring fish to be held in slush tanks and sent to Japan for sale. Capt. Brant McMullan Ocean Isle Fishing Center
