"99# wahoo on The LAW" | Do Work / OIFC | 06/03/15
 

~~what day we had...sometimes all you need is the sea, salt and sun! 100 lb wahoos are just a bonus! The part that made it best was it was just jeffie and I! We went through 2 dozen ballyhoo, put a pile of fish in the box and the daymaker, well possibly career maker wahoo on the deck! We broke a rod fighting a dolphin, still landed it, went with an even lighter rod than we were using but the fish didn't know and caught the big wahoo on a sea witch and flourocarbon! A huge thanks to Vito aka Mr. Leila Vitale from the Myrtle Beach Yacht Club for helping us get the wahoo out of the box and in the cart! Cant wait for fall to do it again!

"Much Needed Salt Fix" | Do Work / OIFC | 06/03/15
 

Sunday was our 1st trip since Nanny Bird passed.  We needed it.  Jeff, Jeremy Phillips and I braved some bumpy seas to make it to 750 ft deep water to try botttom fishing.  The 1st drop yeilded a nice snowey rouper.  Since we had 3 crossfitters on board we hand cranked it up.  Whew!  Next drop yeilded a golden tile.  You guessed it, we hand cranked that critter in too.  We then decided to pull up and troll our way to the Blackjack.  Before we got there we had 3 nice mahi.  They seemed to love crystal meth skirts.

Then we pulled in lines and headed for home.

Jeff & I needed that time away.  Saltwater does heal.  Thank you everyone for your kind words and prayers

"Nearshore report" | | 06/02/15
 

I recently received some constructive criticism requesting more news on nearshore action - "Less than 70 foot" was the title of the email. I admit we could be guilty of just reporting on the glamourous stuff offshore and maybe not giving the nearshore enough credit. Sorry for that. Glamour is relative to the size of the boat I suppose. I Spanish fished yesterday and caught plenty just outside Shallotte Inlet in 18-25' of water. There were Spanish jumping all around, but they were not biting near as good as I would have thought with all that I was seeing. I tuned in my spread to #0 chartreuse spoons on 30' of 20# leader and #1 planers and did better. I also found them to be a little more active around the Pogy schools outside the inlet although I was seeing the jump randomly all over the place. On another note, there were several Pogy schools outside the inlet and a couple of them had BIG fish in them. I came onto one pod that had a group of a dozen 20 pound plus Jack Crevalle cruising through them. That is some fun fishing - they fight like crazy. I did not see any Cobia, but there has to be some around. There are certainly plenty of Sharks under the schools. Speaking of Cobia, we are starting to see more of them in 50-65 feet while King fishing. The Kings have been biting good in this depth on live and dead bait. We are seeing lots of 5-10 pound Kings with a few bigger- Lighthouse Rocks, 90/90, Shark Hole and Jungle have all been good. And that's the nearshore report. I leave the inshore stuff to Jacob and Jeff. I'm looking for them to chime in with their news. Capt. Brant McMullan www.OIFC.com (910) 575-3474

"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!

"3rd Overall" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/30/15
 

~~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
