6th Annual Saltwater Seminar
Coastal Carolina University's Saltwater Fishing Club is hosting their 6th Annual Seminar
on February 21st, 2015 at 10AM (Doors open at 9AM)
Below is a link to where a pair of gill netters in Virginia were caught with thousands of pounds of illegal fish this past weekend. Just last month two commercial gill netters were caught here in Wilmington with 16 times their legal limit. Glad to see them cracking down on those that refuse to follow the law.
Jim Bown the Captain of the "Stickslinger" is shaking the winter blues in the Keys. It's tuff being them.
Meanwhile Larry Spainhour of the "7th Heavan" is catching marlin in Cabo. UPDATE: Larry said "knock the rooster fish off his bucket list".
This reporter is at the OIFC putting a heat lamp in the minnow tank. lol
The staff at the OIFC store tells me the tele is ringing off the hook from folks wanting to know if the SKA Championship is coming to Ocean Isle Beach. Truthfully, we don't know. I can tell you we at OIFC are working VERY hard to accomplish that, but to my knowledge, no decision has been made by the SKA as to where it will be held. To be sure, our southern Brunswick County area[OIB/Holden Beach/Shallotte] would be honored if that decision were made. Our community of towns has joined together to do everything possible to put out the welcome mat for the SKA. Hopefuly we will succeed however I'm sure other communities are putting forth the same effort we are.
Standby, as I expect they will make a decision soon.
I apoloize for the tardiness in getting the Rodeo checks and trophies taken care of. As many of you know my wife is having health issues which reqiure us to be out of town right much. BUT here is a list of the payouts. I have sent our bookkeeper an email to do the checks.

From the News Tribune
This report is not a political commentary. It is a thought of how oil rigs will improve our fishery.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama moved Tuesday to open the Atlantic Ocean to drilling, beginning a mammoth battle over the environmental effects and raising the question of how much oil and gas lies under the sea and whether it’s even economical for it to be drilled.
The Interior Department announced Tuesday that it was proposing a lease sale off the coasts of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia as part of its new offshore leasing plan, which covers 2017 to 2022. At the same time, the department said it would ban drilling in some environmentally sensitive areas off Alaska.
Interior Secretary Sally Jewell called it a balanced plan that allows energy development “while protecting areas that are simply too special to develop.”
The proposal will incite a furious debate over just what American places are considered too special for drilling rigs – pitting environmental groups against industry as well as some coastal towns against their state leaders, who see jobs and the potential for billions in revenue.
“It will be a battle royal,” said Charles Ebinger, a senior fellow in the Energy Security and Climate Initiative at the left-leaning Brookings Institution in Washington.
Ebinger expects lawsuits to rage for years. Jewell said the Atlantic drilling lease sale won’t happen until 2021 and could change or even be scrapped.
Sierra Weaver, an attorney at the nonprofit Southern Environmental Law Center, said she hopes communities along the Atlantic seaboard will band together against the drilling plan, which goes to public comment before being finalized. Weaver argued that Obama’s proposal sells out the Southeast, putting at risk the tourism and fishing economies of coastal communities that rely on having clean beaches and water.
“The Obama administration just made the point that these special areas of Alaska are too special to drill,” Weaver said. “The same goes for the Southeast.”
The proposed lease area is a huge swath from Virginia to the southern border of Georgia, but it could be narrowed. So it’s not clear whether drilling might happen off the beaches of North Carolina’s Outer Banks, the Charleston waterfront in South Carolina, or the port of Savannah in Georgia.
Mayors of coastal towns including Charleston, Beaufort, S.C., and communities on the Outer Banks have spoken out against Atlantic drilling.
The governors of Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina, though, pushed hard for the drilling to be allowed, and Jewell said that made a difference.
North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory called the plan “a step in the right direction to help North Carolina become a significant energy-producing state.” But McCrory criticized as too limiting a 50-mile buffer between drilling and the East Coast that’s included in the proposal.
The Atlantic Ocean has been off limits to drilling for decades, and it’s a mystery just how much oil and gas actually exist off the East Coast.
The federal government estimates 3.3 billion barrels of oil and 31.28 trillion cubic feet of natural gas along the entire Atlantic seabed. That’s hardly the makings of a boom, and it’s nine times smaller than estimated oil reserves off the Arctic coast of Alaska, if the numbers are right. But those estimates date from the 1970s and 1980s, and industry and other drilling supporters consider them too low.
James Knapp, a professor of earth and ocean sciences at the University of South Carolina, said far more advanced seismic surveys have been developed

What does every Jr. Angler do during the fishing offseason and the end of deer hunting season? They use the bucktails from the deer they killed to make fishing lures. Here are some pictures of Team Do Work/OIFC/CFOIB/SeaTow's Jr. Angler Camdyn Beck made from the deer she killed. Get ready flounder!!!
Time to put the rumors to rest. After many years of discussion, I can officially announce The Ocean Isle Fishing Center is expanding next door to take on the restaurant business. The Giggling Mackerel restaurant has been owned and operated by the Myers family for the past 12+ years. Beginning Spring of 2015, we, along with the team from the OIFC Wing and Fish Company will begin operating the new Ocean Isle Fish Company Restaurant Featuring the Giggling Mackerel Tiki Bar. Our plan is to bring the energy, creativity, quality food and service that we have provided at the Wing & Fish Company to the Ocean Isle Fish Company for all of our locals and visting guests. We will focus our menu on fresh seafood and fresh catch straight off our boats and other day boats in the area. The atmosphere will be flip flops, beer and grouper sandwiches.
For as long as I can remember our family has traveled the coast both in the US and abroad taking notes on our favorite on the water dining establishments. The Fish Company will now give us an opportunity to share our vision with the public which was built from all the years of traveling, cocktail napkin plans and red whiskey campfire discussions. Truth be told, there are so many ideas and eccentric plans that we are being forced to temper many of them in order to be open by this spring. There will be many changes upon our re-opening and many more to come as time permits.

I apologize for the delay in the Rodeo trophies and winnings. As many know my wife is in the hospital and is pretty sick and the OIFC is undergoing renovation. Bottom line I've been pre-occupied, there's a delay in the summary and quite frankly when I do have time I'm tired and am just not into the paperwork. Lame excuses I know but please bare with me. Thank you
To the many in the fishing community who have kept up with my updates on Facebook and have expressed their well wishes thank you very, very much. Y'all mean a great deal to the Beck "Team Do Work/OIFC" family. Fact is the entire fishing community means a lot to us.
