"Come and gone" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/03/14
 

Arthur hit South Brunswick County, not like a lion, but more like a mad cat.  He left like a dog was after him.  That being said don't let the news people make you stay home.  We are very fortunate let's hope our fellow coastal residents and visitors come out as well as we have.

The 1st picture is from Frying Pan Towers as shown on a Charlotte TV Station.

The 2nd is at the height of the storm at Ocean Isle Beach

The 3rd was taken @ 7pm the same day.

"Weather Forcast?" | Do Work / OIFC | 07/01/14
 

I have verified this NOT to be a hoax.  In fact a friend took a picture of her TV screen while watching MSN.  See if you can find what is wrong with it and you will fully understand why they missed both the Jolly Mon forecasts.

               ?

        ><)}}*>

I have been a hurricane watcher and worrier for many many years.  My prediction is this storm will turn out to sea as time goes on and will pass between N.C. and Bermuda.  At worst or best depending on your sport we may get some decent surfing swell.   Don't let the hype ruin your 4th plans.  The news and Weather Channel need this storm and will report it as if it's the worst thing since....whatever.  Let's hope I haven't jinksed us.

Disclaimer:  Watch the National Hurricane Center's prediction as well as other weather sources and make your own educated decision.

Between coast and Burmuda was a good guess. I know you guys want to make money, but putting people and children in harms way is bad. NO one knows the out come of a storm, I have been here for 40 years, nothing is set in stone.

"Tough as tough gets" | | 06/30/14
 

Well Jolly Mon 2014 is officially in the books. The family, food, and comradery were there yet the big king mackerel and weather conditions were very tough to find. I had the opportunity to fish the first day of the tournament (Saturday 6/28) with a great charter group. Even with not being able to catch menhaden, find decent weather or a decent fish, this group of Brandon Haddock and crew still managed to have good time while entertaining me with their humor. However, I can’t really put in to words how tough it was Saturday. The weather was just about as unstable as it could get along with fish that seemed to have lock jaw for most of the fleet that fished. But what can we do? – it’s fishing not catching. Fortunately, there will come a time in the future where anxious king mackerel fishermen will be able to run out in a calm sea and actually catch kings until their tired of catching them – it happens every year. We as anglers simply need to be patient and learn as much as we can before we head out on our next fishing trip. With this tropical storm scheduled to hit our coast this weekend, the days leading up to the storm should be good fishing for anglers. The fish will feed as much as possible before the storm hits – thus, if you are fishing with what they are feeding on, you SHOULD catch fish. If the menhaden are still scarce along our beaches in the next few days, try jigging Sabiki rigs for live cigar minnows and hard tails. These baits are candy for kings and big Spanish. While your slow trolling at your favorite fishing spot, be sure to keep an eye out for mahi swimming through your spread. Some may ask, well how do I see them if they’re not right behind the boat or I don’t have a tower on my boat? One way to check if a mahi is nearby is to watch your rod tips while trolling live baits. Those rod tips will begin to bounce frantically if a cobia or mahi enters your live bait spread. Then after assuming a fish is behind your bait, drop your bait back a few pulls to see if the fish will eat. Be sure to have a buck tail jig ready to pitch a cruising mahi if you get a chance to sport one. Thanks to everyone who came out and fished the tournament this weekend. As with any competition or tournament, it all starts with the participants that enter. We are fortunate to have class act anglers that come out to fish this tournament at the OIFC. The next big one at OIFC is the Fall Brawl. See you there! Capt. Derek Treffinger

"Mr. GOODHANDS/OIFC Jolly Mon Recap" | | 06/30/14
 

Here is a brief recap of our tournament weekend. Myself, brother Andy, and Captain Jeff Mcdonald set out Friday morning to catch bluefish. It didn't take long to fill the well up with monster bluefish on the shoals near Bald Head Island. We left there and headed home only to discover that we were losing bluefish fast. We started out with about 40 and were down to 4 on Saturday morning when it was time to set out for our declared fish day. We looked for about two hours for the elusive pogie's before we headed back over to the shoals to see if the bluefish were still there. Once we got to the shoals there were no birds working the schools of bluefish like the day before. We gave it a shot for about thirty minutes with no blues to be found. By this time it was 9:00 and time to make a decision on what to do. The decision was made to run to the knuckle bouy and the Raritan and try to jig some bait. We managed to jig up some Grunts and Pinfish at both locations. With enough bait to get started we set off for the Horseshoe just a couple of miles away. We put out a spread of Bluefish, ribbonfish, and Grunts and we had lines in roughly at 10:00. A couple of Sharks and peanut Mahi were all we could find there. We decided to move to the Sharkhole and finish the day there. Once we got to the Sharkhole the baits went back out and the hunt continued for our targeted species. There were probably 25-30 boats at the Sharkhole and there was some action going on. There wasn't a hot bite, but some fish were getting caught. We finally got a shot around 1:00 when our long line Bluefish got slammed and the sound of the Torium 30 was screaming. Andy was on the rod and doing all he could to stand up and keep the line tight in the sloppy seas. Once in gaff range, Captain Jeff sunk the steel into a respectable fish, somewhere in the 20lb range and our first points fish of the year was in the bag. We continued to fish till about 3:30 and picked up another Mahi and a nice Cobia. We made it back to the scales and our fish would weigh in at 20.25lbs. That was good enough to put us in 28th place at the end of the tournament. We want to thank Brant and all of his Family and Staff for putting on another great event. See everyone in Carolina Beach in a few weeks at the Got-em-On. Captain Toby Russ Mr. Goodhands Fishing Team

"Backwater Action" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/30/14
 

What an afternoon! We started off catching a few short flounder and a nice speckled trout. We made a move to avoid an afternoon thunderstorm and found ourselves in the middle of a redfish flurry. We caught several 17 inch reds just below the slot before changing gears. As the thunderstorm rained itself out just inland of us we made another move. The reds in our last area had a serious attitude and some shoulders! John Fink couldn't get them out of the shells, so we let Jack Ellis give it a shot. Jack drilled a solid 25" redfish and none of us expected anything different. We all wish we had Jack's reaction on camera. It was hilarious as Jack set the hook the redfish nearly yanked the pole out of his hands. John got a few more shots and did finally yank one out of the shells. Jack also got another shot, but the reds were just to strong. There were some studs in that school. We got just about everything we wanted out of those reds other than a picture. Thanks again for fishing with us John, Chris, and Jack. I look forward to our next trip! See ya on the water!

"Got'em Again..." | Tiberias - 22' | 06/29/14
 

The tide seems to be a little bit off from the chart. The tide took forever to start falling, but once it did the flounder started snapping. Live mehaden are still the best bait to find keeper size fish. Menhaden are flipping inconsistently in the waterway between OIB marina and the Sunset Bridge. Channel markers 103 and 105 have been the hot spots, but the menhaden are scattered. Big 8 to 10 feet heavy nets are needed to have the best chance at getting these baits. We did cast net some decent finger mullet and they also produced a couple of keepers. Our redfish hit menhaden, finger mullet, and chunks of crab. Craig busted are largest red that was just over 31 inches. Thomas caught his first redfish that was just over 26 inches and Mark also got his first red that was also just over 26 inches. Thanks Criag, Mark, and Thomas. See ya on the water!

"Redfish Wrap Up" | OIFC | 06/28/14
 

The bottom line is I didn't get it done yesterday in the second day of the HT Redfish Elite tournament out of Lake Charles.  I was in 8th place going into the second day and needed to duplicate my first day's efforts to make the Super Seven cut for the final day of fishing.  Once again I made the long 100+ mile run east.  Everything has to go just right when making this run in order to get there, catch fish and get back.  Getting there went smooth.  Once I arrived, it was like a punch in the gut when I observed what happened to the water conditions.  Overnight the area got a massive amount of rain.  The result was the water went from already dirty to absolute chocolate milk and it raised about 6 inches.  Top that off with a now steady 20knot southeast wind and my goose was cooked.  On the other hand, the rest of the tournament field was encountering the same conditions so no excuses for me. 

Within 5 minutes of beginning fishing I somehow was able to make out a moving shape on the shoreline and hooked and caught a perfect 8lber.  I'm thinking at this point, maybe I'll be ok.  I fished a while longer and finally hooked another solid fish blind casting and during the fight he came unhooked.  I knew I wouldn't have many opportunities so this was devestating.  I fished hard for the next 3 hours and missed only one more shot.  The problem I had was that the fish I was on were very moody.  They didn't really want to eat and the only way I could make them eat was to sight fish them and aggravate them with my bait.  On this day I couldn't see the fish so my chances for success were dashed.  I eventually had to accept my defeat and make the journey back to the ramp.  This time the 100 mile run was through driving rain, tornados and thunderstorms.  Talk about fun.

Once again it was an incredible adventure overall.  I learned a ton but still feel like I only scratched the surface.  This season of redfishing has been enlightening and humbling at the same time.  It's easy to get discouraged when you're not winning.  However, when I start to get down on my lack of success I reanalyze and see that the same core group of anglers are doing well in each of these tournaments.  That tells me there is another level to this game that I haven't tapped yet.  I'm hopeful to continue on this trail next season.  This experience helped to re-ignite my tournament fishing passion and now it's time to shift gears back to my roots and go chase a king mackerel. 

For any of you OIFC report followers out there that are interested in a unique and incredible challenge and want to get in on the redfish tournament trail, I'm happy to share whatever information I've collected this season. 

Good luck Jolly Mon anglers.  I'm on the road back home for this one but will be back on the big water very soon.
