"Mack is Found!" | OIFC | 01/05/14
 

Thank you for all the help in finding Mack.  Turns out he wondered into a neighbors garage where he spent the night.  I think he was hot on the trail of somebody cooking hot dogs!  He was found this morning and came home with an attitude like, "What dad! I knew what I was doing".  He's since received a stern talking to, an introduction to his new fenced area and yes, a hot dog.  He's happy.

"And The Winner Is....." | Do Work / OIFC | 12/28/13
 

Captain Rickey's Annual Christmas Spec-Tacular Trout Tournament began with 30 degree weather and very competitive anglers all after the coveted name on the Master Angler Plaque and winner take all $700 purse.  One team's day began terribly with trailer trouble. The other teams were greated with a trout bite that shut down after about an hour and half fishing, as is always the case, the bite was hot yesterday,

The winner, Clay Morphes had left to prep the Award Dinner at his house.  He did not know he had won.  So, anglers being anglers, devised a cleaver prank.  Brandon Sauls text Clay and told him "a guy from Lake Norman named Wyatt had won".  Clay bought it hook line and sinker.  So at the dinner I presented Wyatt Clark with the winner's $700.  I asked him if he had anything he'd like to say.  Wyatt then told the group that Clay had won and it was all a prank.  Clay's face was beet red.  SUCCESS!!!!

The night was filled with food, families, children running around and stories being told.  Another success.  Clay is the Captain Rickey's Annual Christmas Spec-Tacular Tournament for this year joining Brandon Sauls & Brian Richard on the Master Angler's Plaque.  It will start all over next yea on the weekend after Christmas.  Congratulations Clay, thank you to all who participated and a special thank you to the OIFC for the fishing report and the use of thier scales and dock.  A huge thank you to Clay, Dr. & Mrs. Morphis for the wonderful meal and evening at their home on the Shallotte River.

"Trout Tournament" | Do Work / OIFC | 12/26/13
 

Here's the deal on the Trout Tournament.  There will be a Captain's meeting in the parking lot of the OIFC at 6:30 pm Friday night.  You don't have to be there but I need $50 per person  before the tournament and as always you will be responsible for any information covered.  You can fish from a boat or from a bank.  Lines are in at 7am Saturday and weigh in is at the OIFC Dock AT 4pm.  The heaviest trout wins and it's winner take all.  Your name will be placed on the Tournament Plaque at the OIFC.  Clay Morphes is putting on a spread at his house on Riverbend Rd. at the Shallotte River.  You can start showing up as soon as the tournament is over.  Clay will have Bar-B-Que, fixin's and berverages.  Everyone is invited, fishermen, wives and/or girl friends or both, hisbands and children.  Clay would like to have a crowd for fellowship in the fishing community.  You don't have to fish to come.  Clay is a great cook and loves to entertain in a family atmosphere.

This isn't a Fishing Center Tournament.  So PLEASE don't call and wear the employees out with questions they can't answer.  You may leave $50 in cash in a sealed envelope with the clerk at the OIFC, but again they can't answer any questions.  I think I covered everthing in this and previous reports.  It's a friendly competition with someone winning some money and bragging rights. As Clay put it "It all about the food and beating Brandon".  Let's keep it simple & fun.  If  you have any questions ask them in the comments section of this report that way I can answer them for everyone.

Let's fish, eat and enjoy each other's company..Thanks.  FISH ON!!!!

"Headed South" | Real-Time Update | 12/23/13
 

This past week first mate Ben Morris and my self had the luxury of fishing the pristine inshore waters around the west central coast of Florida. The trip was designed to target redfish, speckled trout and snook. We packed our bags and made the 10hr drive down to Clearwater, FL. Upon arrival, we were greeted with cool temperatures from a cold front that had just moved over the region that day. We both knew that this cold front could make or break the inshore fishing. Nevertheless, we packed our inshore gear into a leaky Jon boat we had borrowed and went fishing. We decided to focus on throwing artificials' at dock lights that people installed to attract fish at night. This tactic produced countless amounts of speckled trout. However, we couldn't find that redfish or snook we were searching for. That next morning first mate Ben, gave one of his old fishing buddies a call to see if he was catching anything about 30 miles south of us. Ben confirmed that he was and insisted that we travel down to fish with him. So off we went down to Tierra Verde, FL. This trip consisted of a total opposite approach compared to our first trip. We used live bait, fished in extremely shallow water, had a boat that didn't leak, and we caught a variety of fish. To start the day off, we caught big bluefish and small jacks. These were fun, but we were really looking for that targeted inshore species we set at the beginning of our trip. After losing hooks to toothy bluefish and getting wrapped up around pilings by jacks we decided to go look for some redfish on the flats. We arrived in the skinny water and started chumming some of our live baits out to determine if there were fish in the area. Huge splashes and boils on the surface clearly indicated that there were redfish here and they were hungry. We pitched live baits to them for a little over an hour catching 7 nice, healthy redfish. After that battle we decided to reload our live wells with bait and go target those bigger speckled trout and snook. We once again arrived in very shallow water and began live chumming baits out. Ben and I were both hooked up to 4 pound trout within minutes. As we kept catching bigger and bigger trout we could see off in the distance large splashes from where snook had began to eat our live baits we threw out. Quickly Ben made the long cast out to where the snook were feeding and hooked up. On a side note, for anyone who as ever king mackerel fished, snook fight similar to a big king. The fish has a hard first bite then makes a long run away from the boat. Then it almost wears it self out and you play the fish gently back to the boat. After Ben and I caught 3 more snook. We decided to pack it up and head in. That trip basically concluded our fishing travels besides a few more short trips in the leaky Jon boat. Once again packed our bags, said our goodbyes and made the 10 hour drive back to Ocean Isle. There was one thing that I really took away from this trip though. To all you guys and girls out there that target inshore fish, more power too you. I learned that it requires an immense amount of skill to catch your desired species no matter where you are. Everything from tide, moon phase, water temp, air temp, water clarity and salinity. On another note, for any of you last minute Christmas shoppers there is plenty of gifts at the OIFC just waiting to be purchased. Come on by and take a look. Happy Holidays Capt. Derek Treffinger

"It's that time of year" | Choice of Two / OIFC | 12/22/13
 

December rolls in and that means two things, speckle trout and in-laws. If you've had all the Christmas shopping you can stand or the in-laws wearing on your last nerve, get out on the water with some of Capt. Ricky's mud minnows and some Gulp baits. I had the pleasure of fishing with Dr. Jeff Wallen his son Josh yesterday. We hammered the L.R. jetties and scored a big fat zero. I knew of the Shallotte River bite so we ran north and started catching. No big trout but 73 degrees on the first day of winter catching trout. Not too shabby.
