"Water Outlook" | OIFC | 04/11/14
 

Its pretty late but if you are still thinking on where to go:  Based on what I see with temp charts I think 100/400 looks decent, but I like just to the North of Steeples the best -- Scarp looks a little cool and action was slow there Thursday -- BUT, always subject to change.  Just my 2 cents-- good luck to all

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/10/14
 

The spring redfish bite can be difficult at times with conditions changing constantly. Dirty water from strong winds after a passing front. Stained freshwater from the last set of thunderstorms. Rising water temperatures get lethragic redfish schools on the move and out of their winter hiding spots. More and more food comes available on the menu and allows ole red to get a little bit more picky. It is fishing and you just never know what the water is going to give up from day to day. You have just got to come up with a game plan and be willing to make adjustments as the day unfolds. We have been fishing live mud minnows and fresh chunk crabs to target redfish lately. Fresh chunk crab will most definitly produce bites from both red and black drum. The bites have just been few and far between. We have been catching a couple of reds and then working the grass banks for speckled trout with soft plastics. To my surprise, we found a few nice redfish willing to eat soft plastics today and no speckled trout. Again, you never know what the water is going to give you. Be patient, work hard, and keep your eyes open for that blue tail wag. See ya on the water!

"Wahoo" | Do Work / OIFC | 04/08/14
 

Ran out of little river to the same ol on the pole dancer with Wesley Landreth.  Got the occasional Bonita, but barracuda kept hitting all day. I switched out 2 dead baits for some ballyhood Wahoo express. Bumped up to 10mph in 200-220 ft ,72 degree water and Wahoo hit a red/black express. Got him on the boat and he was 60-70 pounds estimated. Tried to put him in a 250 qt yeti but with the ice couldn't make him fit. Luckily had the new Oifc fish bag, it had just enough width to fold the tail a little and get him in.

Thanks for the report and the plug for the new fish bag.  I have one to and hope to give it a try this Saturday!!-Capt. Rickey

"Rob's Bait Pens" | OIFC | 04/07/14
 

Team OIFC uses and endorses Rob's Bait Pens to hold our bait -- great for Bluefish, Mullet, Blue Runners- and even Pogies when the water isn't too hot.  Anyway, they cost a fortune to ship, so ordering is tough.  But Rob is coming our way in early June, and if anyone wants to order a bait pen, cost will be $300 for what he calls his "Goggle Eye" pen -- which is what I recommend for our area. 

EMAIL me if you want one, and I'll add it to his order --

"Shallotte Inlet report" | OIFC | 04/06/14
 

Had a chance to ride out to Shallotte Inlet yesterday and see how water looks.

The last 2 buoys are missing and the bar at the end looks worse, but there still is a path out, just a little east from the last buoys. Approx 3-4 feet at low tide[go between the white water coming from the west bar and the east bar].Brant will get with the Wildlife folks and see if missing buoys can be replaced.

Where the dredge is operating, if you go SW from buoy 9, there is a huge new bay that has been created that is 10-15 feet deep. You can follow it and get out the inlet that way if you want, but not marked. That bay will either be a great summer flounder/redfish spot, or I expect cobia and kings can be caught there this year[inside of the inlet!]. Once the dredge is done it will be interesting to see where the major water flow goes and thus digs out the main pass out. We'll keep everyone informed of what we see.

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 04/04/14
 

The weather has been awesome pretty much all week. It has taken these last few days to get the water conditions back to par after the weekend's blow and wash out. The water temperatures are rising steadily and had reached well into the 60's with yesterday afternoon's low tide. I have fished a few days this week and enjoyed a little success. Sunday the wind was blowing so hard it was difficult to present bait to the fish. We broke 4 fish off under the docks. Monday we fished our tails off to break one fish off in the docks and land an 8 inch flounder. Tuesday was lick wounds and get prepared for Wednesday. Wednesday started off without a bite in several locations and the redfish have just been plan sluggish as of late. As the tide started to rise so did the fish. Mark Wood, his daughter Cameron and son Alex landed 7 redfish ranging from 17 inches to 25 inches in the last hour for a great day on the water. Thursday I got out pitching soft plastics to check on the action. The speckled trout have come back alive! They had shut down with a slight drop in water temperature, rain, and driving winds. Yesterday they were on fire! I landed at 30 trout yesterday afternoon in just a few hours. Most were on the small side, but a pair of 21 inchers were in the mix. All fish were carefully released with wet hands to fight another day as the fishery is closed for harvest until June 15th. See ya on the water!

"A Pretty Good Day" | Do Work / OIFC | 04/03/14
 

Bryan Freeman reported that they had a pretty good day earlier this week.  They headed south and boated 6 wahoo out of about 12 bites.  All were really nice fish.  They also managed to weed through the alberts and corral a couple of really nice black fin.  The biggest wahoo was 74 lbs and the biggest blackfin was 23 lbs.  The water was greenish -blue and was 69.8 degrees with no current.

Thanks for the report Bryan!

"ska" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 04/03/14
 

With the sudden closure of the Southern Kingfish Association or SKA it's kind of like the old saying "you don't know what you've got until its gone.'' I know that I surely will miss being a part of the organization and by the responses I've seen a lot of others will miss it as well. Well the good news is the Tournaments will move forward full steam ahead including one of my favorites the Jolly Mon which is right around the corner. For those of you that are looking for some friendly competition and a similar points race for our local area check out the Carolina King Mackerel Series. This was put together by our local guys to keep track of points and have a little incentive to participate in each of the tournaments. I truly hope and do believe that the ska will come back and hopefully be better than ever and if so I will have my money in both series.

Who is the CKMS? I think they say something like "It's a Carolina Thang, CATCH IT!!!" I believe some of the guys fish on that boat Salty Daze in the small boat class right? I know some of the others fish on "Blew By U" and then what's that other boats name..... Oh yeah that's right Choice of Two lol. That's that black Donzi right???

"The Almighty's Heart?" | Real-Time Update | 04/02/14
 

As I posted yesterday, I carried some kids from the Masonic Children's Home on a fishing trip. I know many of you are aware of the great work that they do for our children. While fishing, one of the girls pointed in the sky and said "look at that heart." When I looked up I was in awe. It took me a minute to think of capturing a picture. Here it is. What do you think?

"" | Real-Time Update | 04/01/14
 

Today I was blessed to have Charlie and Selena Godfrey from the Masonic Children's Home and some of the kids from this very fine organization accompany me for a short but productive trip. We eased out to about 30 feet of water and the kids started catching sea bass. These kids have never been out before and many do not have the opportunities that other kids have. However, with help from the Children Home they will have a much better chance a a happy childhood. I am grateful to have been a part of their experience today.
