"Jolly King report" | OIFC | 06/27/14
 

Just got back from fishing Jr. Jolly Mon. Yes, the Kings are everywhere. We fished the Shark Hole and weighed a mid 20's; other fish being caught there. Also they were biting at the Jungle. For anyone who ever thought of fishing a tourney, this one now is the one to fish. The weather forecast[and actual conditions] is flat seas; plenty of pogies toward Long Beach[also school at Shallotte Inlet this afternoon coming in]; water color is perfect from the beach on out, water full of bait in 65-70 feet; AND the fish are biting. Come join us and help make this the biggest Jolly Mon ever.

"Slow, but Slammed it! " | Tiberias - 22' | 06/27/14
 

The morning started off slow with pinfish and bluefish eating most of our shrimp. We headed back to my bait reserves and reloaded. We then proceeded to make an attempt at finding some live menhaden. The bait is flipping once in a while and the stiff westerly breeze is making it difficult to see the flips. I had caught just a hand full of baits, but felt that I needed a few more. Capt. Mark Dickson made a perfect cast just a few yards from us. He nearly floated the net. Mark was gracious to us and shared a few dip net fulls. Thank you Mark! Myself and crew greatly appreciated that. I hope that I can repay the favor in the near future. After loading down with bait we headed for a redfish hole. Again, the pinfish were killing us. We started hitting flounder holes and found a few for the table. We hit another redfish hole hooking up several times, but only landing one red. We caught a few black drum, but they were short of the new 14 inch mark. Meagan caught our best flounder around 4 pounds. Mark Stout had a great chance at an inshore slam, but let a nice redfish slip the hook. With a little team work my crew finally did put together a Carolina Slam for the boat. See ya on the water!

"They're here!" | | 06/26/14
 

Kings have moved into the 20 mile range. Seems like the key to catching them is having big lively baits and fishing 2 hours before low tide. With conditions stabilizing, the Jolly Mon should have quite a leaderboard. Good luck to everyone fishing the tournament this weekend! Capt. Derek Treffinger

"Day One in the Books" | OIFC | 06/26/14
 

"Shrimpin is hard"- Forest Gump.  So is redfishing.  Man, what a day.  Woke up this morning and the storms had passed and left us with just a slight drizzle.  I was checked out at 6:17am and pointed her east.  I ran the inside and 5 other competitors went the same direction as me.  The good part is we were able to run as fast as we wanted in the calm water the bad part is dealing with the swing bridges and locks.  Thankfully, this morning the bridge and lock operators were cooperative and we got through with little waiting time.  I made it to my fishing area in 2 hours and 23 minutes. 

I began working an area I had prefished and on my second cast I had him on only to pull the hook.  I knew every bite was critical to capitalize on due to the short amount of fishing time I had.  Fortunately it didn't take long to find another fish and in the next two hours I boated 6 keeper redfish and culled one.  The fish were once again reluctant to eat and the only way I could get them to bite was sight fishing and aggravating them until they snapped at my lure.  Sight fishing is still such a rush for me and today was as good as it gets. 

I knew the fishing had been tough the last few days so with 5 decent fish in the boat and a long way to get back to the scales, I picked up and started making tracks back.  The first stop was for fuel.  That went smooth and took 15 minutes at most.  I then had to agonize over the decision to remain on the inside and risk the unkown with getting delayed at a lock vs running an extra 30 miles, 20 of them in the ocean and deal with a 3-5 ft sea.  After going back and forth a dozen times I opted to stay inside.  I made it through 2 bridges and 1 lock with little delay.  The last lock only 5 miles from the weigh in site held me up for an hour but fortunately I had given myself enough cushion that I had plenty of time. 

I made it to the weigh in and put up 32+ lbs with 5 fish but had a .75lb penalty for one dead fish.  It was a fair first day as far as the result goes, but all the trials and tribulations I encountered to get to that point was extraordinary.  My brain hurts from doing all the calculations over and over again and worrying about the locks.  And guess what?  I get to do it again tomorrow!  Currently I'm in 8th place about 5lbs off the leader.  The top 7 after two days of fishing fish the 3rd day.  I'll give em heck again tomrrow and hope for the best.

"The "Jack" Hammer" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/26/14
 

Chris Ellis and his son Jack joined me again for some backwater action. We again had a hard time getting a net full of menhaden, but the time spent getting bait was worth it. Jack put the hammer down on some really nice flounder up to 4 pounds. The Ellis family will be eating good tonight. Jack also found 4 nice reds, but not one bigger than his 30 incher on his last trip. I can't express how much I appreciate Chris and his son Jack for giving me the opportunity to put them on the fish. I always enjoy my time on the water with them and they always seem to catch plenty of fish making me look like I know what I doing. See ya on the water!

"Go Time" | OIFC | 06/25/14
 

Tomorrow is day one of the tournament.  Nobody in the field of competitors seem too confident including myself.  But, normally how that works is everyone sand bags leading up to and then at the scales everybody has good fish.  I wish I could say that was me.  I caught a few fish today in the storms but still nothing I'm very excited about.  My plan is to swing for the fences tomorrow and run 100+ miles back to my day one pre fish spot.  It wasn't a great bite there but it was the best I've found this week.  There are lots of risks to this plan but I don't have anything to lose and no confidence any where else.  If it's storming tomorrow morning, which is a real possibility, I will have to alter my plan and come up with something close by.   Typical Team OIFC- Checkers or Wreckers.

Barrett text says he headed to the scales with a good bag of fish...if he can make it 100+ miles, thru 3 locks, numerous bridges, mud flats, and 800 alligators. Standby for report.

"Flounder Pounding" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/25/14
 

John Fink and Robert Fink joined me for a half day earlier this week. We started off our morning catching live menhaden near the Sunset Beach bridge. It took me longer to get a net full than I anticipated. The bait was mostly scattered and not flipping consistently. We finally did load the live well down with bait, but it was on the boarder line of being too small. We made our move to float live shrimp for trout, but the pinfish were just too quick. We hit a few flounder holes and it was game on! John and Robert put a pounding on the flounder. After filling the box full of good eating it was time to find a line stretcher. We moved to a redfish hole and baited our hooks with live shrimp. Robert smoothly worked a solid 25 incher to the boat. John quickly followed with another. Both anglers got one more before we called it a day. It was a good day. That's how we get it done in Remington Country! See ya on the water!

"Still Searching" | OIFC | 06/24/14
 

Today was another day of aimless searching for redfish.  I tried a variety of areas including chasing birds on the big lake which yielded lots of trout, jetty fishing, marsh fishing, lake fishing, and oil rig fishing.  The result, a big zero.  I ran into some of the other local tournament guys and everyone is singing the blues.  Something is apparently off as normally the fish are everywhere or so they say.  It's a bad sign when you see one of the top local tournament guys jigging docks. 

I spent a lot of the day trying to figure out how to get back where I was yesterday in a reasonable amount of time.  I could either run 110 miles by ocean or 95 miles by waterway.  The problem with the waterway is it requires waiting on 2 bridges and 2 sets of locks.  The bridges aren't too bad but the locks are unpredictable.  It could take 15 minutes or an hour and 15 minutes.  So, the inland option is a risk but with the predicted weather, it may be the only option. 

Tomorrow is the last day of practice so hopefully I can find something worthwhile a little closer by.  It's not looking too good though I have to admit.

"36 pounder" | | 06/24/14
 

The kingfish on the right of this picture weighed in at nearly 36 pounds. We caught the fish on a live pogey in 80 feet of water. The bait was in about ten feet of water this morning off of Ocean Isle. Along with the big king we also caught several big amberjacks and a mahi. Sent from my iPhone

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 06/24/14
 

Flounder and redfish have been the main targets lately on the backwater scene for me. They have been cooperating on most of our trips. Speckled trout have also made a showing from time to time. Speckled trout have reopened for harvest at 4 per person and 14 inch minimum length. Live shrimp under a float or fished on the bottom will tempt all three species. Live menhaden are producing more and better flounder. See ya on the water!
