"Fresh fish at the Wing and Fish Co" | Hail Yeah / OIFC | 05/20/14
 

After a long winter hiatus I finally got the chance to get back offshore this past Sunday. I joined Capt. Barrett and my brother in law, Shawn Lathem aboard the OIFC Yellowfin. We met at the OIFC around 6 am and started loading the boat with the required tackle for the day. With no particular species in mind, we just kept loading rods until every rod holder was full. Our first stop of the day was a wreck around 50 miles offshore. We did a little jigging in hopes of snagging a grouper or getting some interest from any cobia that may be around. We managed a couple of small jacks and decided to keep heading offshore. We pulled the throttles back again at the McMarlen Ledge. We managed a couple of blackfins, one wahoo and completely whiffed on a triple hook up. As we trolled down to the scarp we managed to pick up two more wahoo, the biggest 52#, and a mahi. The scarp showed some promise with a nice weed line and few flyers, but seems it may have been picked over by the 6 boats that were already there. Next, we decided to see if the grouper would cooperate. We put in a couple of hours on the bottom fish and were rewarded with grouper, golden tilefish, blue line tilefish and rosefish. The Wing and Fish Company is stocked up with fresh fish! Be sure to stop by and enjoy some of the freshest fish in the area.

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 05/20/14
 

What are they biting? A little bit of something and a whole lot of nothing. Everyday has been something different lately. We fished several of the usual places last week with fresh crab chunks, live mud minnows, and peanut menhaden with only a few bites. We switched gears to soft plastics hammering reds, trout, and flounder. Go figure! I got out Sunday afternoon catching a nice trout and several reds on soft plastics. Monday we drifted tubbs inlet with live mud minnows catching several short flounder. We switched gears to target reds with crab chunks and live menhaden without a bite. We went back to flounder fishing with mud minnows and peanut menhaden. Caught more flounder, trout and bluefish. Again, we switched gears to target redfish with crab and menhaden. We ended our day with a nice redfish and a black drum. So, what are they biting on? Throw the kitchen sink at them, something is bound to work. See ya on the water!

"Liberty, NC Boy Scouts Rock the Dock" | OIFC | 05/19/14
 

I sent in an earlier picture but again wanted to congratulate the Liberty, NC Boy Scout troop who fished with the OIFC on Saturday morning.  Good job- Logan West, Levi West, Alex Graves, Ryan Gerringer, Logan Shoffner, Dylan Gresson, Colton Woodard, Austen Cook, Jarrett Moser, Seth Fields and Hunter Clapp.  All these young men successfully baited and hooked their own fish AND weighed-in to compete in their own Rock the Dock event.  Thanks again guys and best wishes.  Stick with fishing as it will be a lifelong sport you, your friends and family can do together.

Thanks to OIFC and their GREAT staff. Captain Brant treated our Boy Scouts like they were his best customers. He gave them instructions, bait , hooks and more, so go by and support this great family business. PS if you look at the picture close you will see that "fishing beast" aka Brayden that Captain Brant released on our poor scouts. It was great to see him catching those fish and our boys saying, what kind of bait is he using. We are still giving those boys a poke about that. Thanks again and God Bless. Troop 301

"Far Out Shoot Out " | OIFC | 05/18/14
 

Congratulations to Captain Frank Johnson and crew of the Emma Rose who captured the overall win in the 2014 Far Out Shoot Out.  The team fished the first day of competition and clung to the lead to the very end despite some serious challengers.  Second Overall was taken by Zach Faulkner and crew of the Get Floor'd/OIFC and third overall was taken by Toby Russ and crew of the Mr. Goodhands/OIFC.  First place wahoo at 39.7 pounds was won Michael Lee of the Streamin Live.  First place Tuna was won by the Get Floor'd/OIFC with a 20 pounder.  First place Mahi and the events biggest fish was won by Patrick Bellamy and crew of the Mining My Bidness with a 42.95 pound Mahi.  Fishing was exceptionally good for all participants as Mahi were certainly the main course, but there were just enough Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna around to make the event a challenge.  28 boats participated in the tournament this year, which is pretty darn good.  I am hoping the Shoot Out can grow again to the 30-40 boat tournament that it once was.  We are not very far from it.  We also had 2 Billfish releases- Scale Bound had a Sail and Reel Relief had a White Marlin.  Both of these teams will have their names engraved on the memorial Don Leonard Billfish trophy which is on display at the OIFC.

"Boy Scouts Rock the Dock" | | 05/18/14
 

The OIFC entertained a Boy Scout troop from Liberty, NC yesterday for a dock fishing lesson and tournament. There were 11 boys between the ages of 12 and 16 who all fished off the dock. It was a bit of a struggle, but every participant caught at least one fish; pinfish, spot , croaker, perch and bluefish were all caught. It was all in good fun as the troop learned some tricks on catching more fish. It was nice to see the troop leaders/ chaperones go to the extra effort to give the kids an opportunity to spend a couple of days at the beach doing some fishing. It will hopefully be an experience they remember and will learn from. Best of luck and good job Capt. Brant McMullan Ocean Isle Fishing Center

"Stewards of The Environment" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/17/14
 

From my experience I have determined anglers and sportsmen/ladies are some of the best stewards of our environment.  As an example, most readers of this report are familiar with Brandon Sauls.  Today Brandon joined a group in an ICW trash sweep.  He said "man what an eye opener it was.  We worked a 300 yd section of the Waterway and came up with 12+ bags of trash and debris.  Take care of our environment people"

Thank you Brandon and thanks to everyone who participated.  I wish I had known about it.

That would have been Capt. Mark Stacy and Brandon Sauls picking up trash for the River Sweep out of Little River SC. It's an eye opening experience but give credit to both these guys for giving there time to a worthy cause.





"This week In Review" | Do Work / OIFC | 05/16/14
 

The spanish pictured below were caught off OIB in 20 to 30 ft of water in about 30 minutes by the crew of the Cannon Ball with Capt. Howard Cheek this past Wednesday.  Thanks for the report Capt.

Bob Newell said that even though they were out of the FOSO because of motor trouble they still had a great day Sunday mahi fishing from the Black Jack to the 100/400.  They even had a white marlin in the spread.

Picture 3 is of the crew of the "Reel Relief" fishing their FOSO Tournament Day..

Doug Montgomery sent the picture of the white marlin his brother Capt "Boomer" Montgomery caught out of Little River.  Could this have been the same white marlin?
