I have been a little slack on the reporting side. The facts are that fishing is just that, FISHING! Some days it seems to be easy and others you have to work for every bite. Live shrimp and live menhaden will increase your chances at getting on the bite. We have been targeting reds at or near low tide with live baits pinned to Carolina rigs. As the water rises into the grass floating live shrimp under a cork will tempt some speckled trout. Drifting and dragging live menhaden on a Carolina rig is likely to pick up a few flounder. Come on down and lets go fishing! See ya on the water!
Travis Ketchie owner and CEO of Ketchie Outdoors and some friends showed us today the kings are here. Travis headed out on his Fountain and said they got tired of getting beat up so they didn't go as far as he'd planned.
12 year old Wyatt McGirt caught his first fish, a 27 lb Cobia within 45 minutes while fishing with his dad.
The Jolly Mon is postponed until the following weekend, June 26-29. All events will take place on the same days and same times, just one week later.
This has been a difficult decision, particularly as we are still several days out. However, in an effort to give as much time as possible for participants to change schedules and go on with their lives, we are making the call now. The weather may well turn out to be ideal, but at this time, it does not look that way and thus the call is being made.
We are tournament fishermen just like the rest of you. We have fished in the worst of conditions, just like many of you; and it can be done. However, the spirit of the Jolly Mon tournament is in its family involvement. The conditions that are forecast are not conducive to allowing many families to fish together, and thus the call has been made.
Finally, we have very limited to no flexibility in changing the date again if similar conditions are present on the reschedule dates. Thus, for all you fishermen who are out there saying that you would have fished this weekend, you will get your chance the weekend of June 26th; hopefully under better conditions, but there is certainly no guarantee.
I hope this decision will please more than it displeases. If you have entered and wish to get your entry back, I will offer a refund. EMAIL ME
Thank you for your understanding.
Tommy sent these pictures the 12th. But since I hadn't checked my email I'm a little late posting. However in looking at other friends' posts on facebook I can report the cobia are still here.
Wendell Barnett happened upon this boat adrift today while he was out fishing aboard his Sea Hunt "Empty Pockets". Wendell said the boat lost it's anchor and had a net hung up in it's prop abd had been adrift for 1 or 2 days. Fortunately for them Wendell is always out there and happened upon them before the winds started picking up.
Great work Wendell!!!
Tag Team Sport Fishing shows proof the kings are here with this one they caught off of Oak Island.
This weekend's weather is a concern as regards to hosting the Jolly Mon. I assure you that we are watching it and trying to make a fair decision. A decision will be made tomorrow by 12 noon as to whether the event will occur this weekend or next weekend. Visit www.OIFC.com/jmkc for information tomrrow at noon.
Thank you - Capt. Brant
