"Mold Craft" | | 05/30/14
 

OIFC has introduced a new line of offshore lures- Mold Craft. We are carrying the SR. Chugger, Super Chugger, and little Chugger sizes. Colors include- black/purple, blue/white, black/orange, Mac/pink, and dolphin. These lures are great for a variety of pelagic species. Marlin, Mahi, Blackfin, wahoo - they work for all of them. We are also considering carrying the "wide range" lure head by Mold Craft. Come on by and check them out before your next offshore trip. They are much cheaper than our previous offshore artificials and in my opinion have better action. Check em out! Capt. Derek Treffinger

Incredibly effective to mix one or two of these larger heads rigged with no bait on with your ballyhoo spread. You will catch more Marlin and big Mahi fishing this way. Capts Derek and OC had a 59lb Wahoo on a black/purple the day of the Far Out Shoot Out (of course their party wasn't in the tourney). Rig the lures on 200-300lb mono and double hook rig. You will also save on ballyhoo rigging time and $! The smaller chugger is good to put in front of a ballyhoo and fish off a short or long rigger for Mahi

"Throwback Thursday" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/29/14
 

Captain Jeff Beck and I knew nothing about flounder fishing when we bought the Talechaser in @2000.  So, we chartered Captain Stan Gurganus of the OIFC.  We knew no one there.  Our request of Stan was to show us how to flounder fish and maybe a few good holes.  We also met Clay Morphes that day.  Clay owned the fastest inshore boat we'd ever seen.  I think it was a Majac (?).  Long story short, Stan got us hooked on flounder fishing.  We went on to win a couple of tournaments.  Stan is now a fulltime police Sgt. with Sunset Beach and a great off shore Captain with the OIFC.

Chartering or attending a school at the OIFC is an excellent way to get your start or improve your skills.

"Fisherman's Post Flounder Tourney THIS WEEKEND" | OIFC | 05/29/14
 

A reminder that the Fisherman's Post Inshore Challenge Flounder tourney is being hosted from the OIFC this weekend.  Registration is tomorrow with fishing on Saturday.  Check out their website info http://www.fishermanspost.com/tournaments/ocean-isle-inshore-challenge

I may even have to break out some old school gear and get back into it -- I've got a 10lb 12oz on the wall I caught when I was 12 -- maybe I can resserect that fish!

See you at the OIFC

"team choice of two " | Choice of Two / OIFC | 05/28/14
 

Well I got the opportunity to take my wife Shaun , daughter Ella , and friends Ryan Stevens , Elizabeth and, their son mason out . It was Ella's first time offshore and what better way than to take her 65 miles straight offshore . Well fishing was decent with a good catch of Mahi and a blue marlin sighting close to the 100fathom line . We worked hard for the mahi we got finding most on a rip in 350ft .When the bite slowed we were 8 miles west of the 100-400 and dropped down to catch a grouper . Ella and Mason reeled in every single fish and the moms gaffed every fish we caught . I as a dad and I'm sure Shaun as a mother have never been so proud to see my 7 year old daughter Ella have fun the entire trip and not complain one time . It's time to start looking for the macs now and prepare for the Jolly Mon . Sent from my iPhone

"Cigar minnows on sale" | | 05/28/14
 

We have been getting complaints that cigar minnow boxes are only yielding half a box of useable baits- thus we are discounting our current inventory of cigar minnows at 50% off to make them a better value and clear out current stock and attempt to find a better batch. Come getm while they last Capt. Brant McMullan Ocean Isle Fishing Center

"Update" | | 05/28/14
 

I updated the Rodeo Leader Board. I haven't posted the $ yet but it looks like we are ahead of last year Also I've been busy tying a newly designed more beginner friendly flounder Carolina Rig. Capt Jeff Beck & I used something similar to it when we were on the inshore flounder tournament trail & were very successful! I hope to have the 1st batch out today Sent from my iPhone

"Gulf Stream frenzy" | | 05/27/14
 

The Gulf Stream provided the OIFC offshore boats with some action this weekend. Sean Morris and I set out for the MacMarlen hole on Sunday and we were rewarded upon arrival. Blackfin tuna were particularly abundant that day. When they weren't seen feeding on the surface they were hooked up to our green machine set way back. Mitch and Danielle Hodge, David Wilson and Allen Andrews did a fantastic job fighting the tuna and also some decent size Mahi. The Mahi action is still hot and heavy if you can find the right conditions and weed lines. These fish should bite through the end of this month and into the first couple weeks of June before they completely disperse inshore. Take advantage of the action while it's here! Capt. Derek Treffinger

"Redfish Tourney Woes" | OIFC | 05/27/14
 

I'm going to have to do a recap of the last couple days at another time.  I'm beat up, wet, tired and if that wasn't enough, the fish are being very uncooperative from what is normal down here. 

I've traveled 300+ miles in the last two days.  Still a lot of work to do before the tournament begins Thursday.  The weather is tough.  A low pressure system looks to be developing right on top of us. 

We've been to Venice, LA and now are back in Biloxi.  We caught some and saw some but not enough and not the right ones.  Everybody seems to be struggling but I'm sure they'll get found.  Standby for a more detailed report once I get myself put back together.

"Royal Slam" | Hail Yeah / OIFC | 05/27/14
 

I got a couple of texts today about a friend catching a white marlin off of OIB and it reminded me that I was supposed to be looking for a pic I had of another white marlin.  I will post the details of Kurt Cross' white marlin once I get the "rest of the story". 

In the meantime,  I finally found this pic from a couple of years ago when Jeff Beck, Brant McMullan, Barrett McMullan and I fished a billfish tourney out of Biloxi. I should probably save it for a TBT but it's too cool not to share. In the pic are Barrett McMullan and a white marlin. This is not just an ordinary white marlin, but a record book worthy white marlin. This was the final billfish Barrett needed to complete the "Royal Slam" and get his name in the IGFA record books. An angler completes the Royal Slam by catching all 9 billfish of the world. This accomplishment has to be one of the toughest of all sportfishing quests.

"Kings" | | 05/27/14
 

Lydia Hunt, her father William and fiance Preston Moore joined First Mate Sean Morris and myself aboard the World Cat for a half day of fun. We began fishing in 55 feet of water and it wasn't long before the downrigger rod began screaming. After working the fish to within sight it was found to be a shark. As Sean worked on releasing the doggie our medium rod was struck. The run was definitely different from the usual dog shark run. Sure enough a nice king came along side and Sean found his mark with the gaff. For the remainder of our trip everyone stayed busy.Two more kings were boated and a couple more released as well as a.few more dog sharks to kelp us busy. Thanks to our crew for a job well done.
