Top right photo shows a picture of my son and I in the middle (Doug & Daniel Cross). We took your class 2 different times to learn how to fish in the Gulf stream. We learned a ton. I have my own boat and I can't remember the last time I went offshore and didn't come home with a boat load of fish. These guys are professionals at what they do. Great photo and thanks again for teaching us the right way to get it done.... Douglas Cross.

WAIT LIST

If you wanted to fish the Kingfish Cup and you did not make the first 100, PLEASE get on the wait list. It is going to mean something. CLICK HERE to go to the page to join the WAIT LIST.THE WAIT LIST WILL CLOSE 4/16.

** IMPORTANT **

The Kingfish Cup WILL NOT in any way affect your participation in the Jolly Mon or Fall Brawl.  The Jolly Mon and Fall Brawl remain open to the public and registration will go just as it always has, closing the Friday evening prior to Saturday's fishing.  There has been some confusion between the limited entry Kingfish Cup and the Jolly Mon.  The Kingfish Cup is riding as an umbrella across the Jolly Mon, Got'em On, Fall Brawl and Rumble tournaments, but they will not be affected or changed in any way due to this.  These tournaments are open to the public as they always have been- see you at the weigh-in!


JOLLY MON VIP UPDATE

There has been some deep thought going into this year's Jolly Mon VIP.I feel like the format we have used the last two years has run its course, and it is time for something new.We may bring it back in the future, but let's switch it up.One of the big reasons for the VIP was to have an event that was completely different than what we typically see in a Kingfish tournament.It was designed to be more fun and relaxed than the coming weekend's main event.Thus, here's the plan.

The Jolly Mon VIP will be a 3 fish aggregate:1 King Mackerel, 1 Barracuda and 1 Amberjack.The heaviest combined weight of one fish per species will be the winner.You HAVE TO HAVE all three species to be eligible to win the primary prizes.There will be no check-out and the boundaries will be the same as the Jolly Mon.All other rules are the same as the Jolly Mon except:All boats must be in weigh-in line by 3pm.The entry fee will be $210, with the 3 highest aggregate weights winning the primary prize money.There will also be optional TWT's of $105 each for the largest fish of each species, winner-take-all.

Lastly, entry to fish the VIP will be open to anyone; there is no qualification required.In the spirit of fun, let's allow anyone to get out and have a fun day on the water turning these "trash" fish into treasure.The deadline to enter will be when on-line registration closes at 11:59pmon Tuesday, June 13th. Entry will be available on-line or by mail - CLICK HERE - or visit www.OIFC.com

"Wahooooo" | | 03/29/17
 

Day 1 of SC Wahoo Series tournament in books. Team OIFC partnered with Team YellowfinOnly and scaled an 82.8 (Austin Aycock, Scott Smith and Kelly Fisher. It is a 2 fish aggregate deal, so we are in contention. The leading team put a 97# on the board so plenty of work to be done and still plenty of teams to fish. Fishing days extend til April 16. Good news is no matter who catches what they will have to work for it. Nice fish being weighed. Scales at Tollers Cove convenient. Caught her at the Scarp. Capt. Brant McMullan

"Abandoned Boat Ordinance " | Do Work / OIFC | 03/28/17

Brunswick County Abandoned BoatAn abandoned boat sits in the water near the bridge at Holden Beach on March 21, 2016. People who live and work in the area say it had been abandoned for almost four years. (Photo: Alexa Block/WWAY)

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — After years of work, the Brunswick County Commissioners passed the abandoned boat ordinance.

Captain Mose Highsmith of the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office was the person designated to draft the boat ordinance several years ago.

The plan regulates the docking and anchoring of boats in the county and prohibits them from being abandoned.

Captain Highsmith says that the abandoned boats have been a major problem in the area and this decision is the right one.

“Well there’s been a need recognized for the last couple years that there is a growing number of boats that have been left in various areas of the county,” Highsmith said. “They become either obstacles to navigation or they sink in place and become somebody’s problem to deal with.”

Captain Highsmith says the decision tonight came with very little discussion as the change needed to happen.

Captain Highsmith says that the job is not done.

It’s up to his team to enforce the laws to make the change for the area.

"Backwater School was a Success! " | Tiberias - 22' | 03/26/17
 

Chai Lee, Joe Bode, Jeff Edwards, and Chase Edwards joined me for my first backwater school of the year. We only offer a few of these each year and they fill up fast. These schools give anglers new to the area or just new to backwater fishing opportunities to learn techniques and skills directly from a guide with 8 hours of on the water instruction after a 2 hour land class discussion. The weather was near perfect yesterday with winds so light the no-seeums dang near carried us away. It was aggrevating for the first few hours as we moved a few times just to get away from the no-seeums. We managed to catch fish in every area we went to yesterday despite some nasty looking water in the bonaparte creek area. My class members where very gracious letting go all but one redfish yesterday even though we easily put a limit of keepers in the livewell. We even let go a few trout, no need to keep what you are not going to eat. Thank God for true sportsmen that understand the need to leave some for next time! The next school is scheduled for April 14th and 15th hosted by Capt. Jeff Williamson. My next school is scheduled for April 21st and 22nd. You can see all school dates and information listed under our Fishing tab and scroll down to fishing schools. See ya on the water!

Where the Inlet meets the Waterway. I THINK Inlet Dredging will begin later as they start the jetty

Jay 03/25/2017

Are they actually dredging the inlet or only where it meets the shalotte river (east west)?

"Water temp shot" | OIFC | 03/23/17
 

This is a great example of why water temp shots are so critical, particularly early Spring. This pic is from Hilton's Realtime-Navigator which is what I use. See how the warm water is pushed offshore of MacMarlen. Notice the good water north of the Steeples, near Nipple and Same Ole. If you go to normal places like MacMarlen, Winyah, 100/400 or Black Jack you will likely not find much. If you burn a few extra gallons and go to Same Ole and North your chances should be better. And that's why satellite temp shots are so critical. Capt. Brant McMullan

This weekend we will be hosting our first hands on learn how to on the water with a guide fishing school of the season.

It is going to be beautiful! Trout and redfish will be the main targets in this class. Fishing for black drum will also be covered and it wouldn't suprise me to luck up on a flounder.

AIWW Dredging Project

The dredge (Southwind) is mobilizing to Ocean Isle Beach this weekend in conjunction with the AIWW crossing project.

The pipe line for this project will be placed on the beach from the inlet side. Work should be completed within a two week period.

"Inshore Fishing" | | 03/17/17
 

I have high hopes today for our inshore captains!!! The weather lately has not been the most cooperative for fishing, so it has been kind of quiet. Both guys have charters this morning (no pressure Capt. Jeff and Capt. Jacob), but stay tuned...HOPEFULLY they will have a lot to talk about when they get back to the docks!
