Attached is a video from this past summer when the redfish were chewing. We have all been stuck inside way too long this winter. It has been cold and wet! Warm air is forecasted for us this coming week and will hopefully send Ole Man winter packing. Come join us this year! See ya on the water!
Due to the large amount of rain the past couple of days we are having to CANCEL the Shallotte River Swamp Park Ground Breaking Ceremony today.
We will let everyone know when we decide on a new date & we apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause!

Sorry it has been a while since updated.
David is doing really well with his physical therapy and rehabilitation. He is enjoying his therapists. David has said they aren't big as a minute but are strong as bulls. They have been pushing him hard and he has been responding well and trying to do a little more than they ask him to do daily. He is really pushing himself to get stronger.
This past couple weeks have been big ones. David was assisted in standing for the first time in over 2 months last week. He stood for almost two minutes with assistance. Through the week and weekend he continued to work on his standing and balance. Over the weekend the nurses removed his lift assistance from his room and worked him into using a board slide to get out of bed and into his chair. He is doing this on his own and is really showing strength improvement.
Tuesday was another big step. David used a walker to take a couple steps. He felt good about it as did his therapists. They worked him out Wednesday, then on Thursday he took 42 steps using his walker. He is making good progress with his leg strength and core. He will continue to work with the walker and therapists on walking in the coming weeks. The staff also mentioned having him workout in the swimming pool with therapist/trainers once he has enough balance to stand without assistance. David is excited about this and the progress he is making.
This Saturday is sure to be a happy and emotional day for the Captain. He is being granted a 8 hour day pass to go home. This will be the first time David has been out of the hospital since Dec 7th when he was admitted. This will also be the first time David and Freddie will see eachother. I am positive this is gonna be an exciting and needed reunion and positive incentive for David to push himself to a speedy recovery. We will post as the progress continues.
David is appreciative if all of your love, support and prayers. Keep it coming.
Attention all rodeo winners, the checks are ready. If you pick your'r up at the store tell the clerk the checks are in my folder. I am waiting for the trophies to be completed

Record Bluefin Tuna Caught in North Carolina
Beaufort, North Carolina is home to the new record bluefin tuna.
The record bluefin tuna, which reportedly weighed in at 1,005 pounds, was hooked on Tuesday, Jan. 13th at around 6:45 a.m. It put up a struggle that lasted over three hours and dragged the boat almost 10 miles across the ocean, before being finally landed and brought back to land. This record bluefin tuna will remain an unofficial record because the fishermen who caught it are commercial fishermen. This did work in favor of the fishermen since they were legally allowed to keep the fish. The record bluefin tuna was an astonishing 113 inches long, which is 40 inches over the legal limit for recreational fisherman. The fish weighed 200 pounds over the current official record bluefin tuna which belongs to Corey Shultz from Oregon.
Capt. Herb Sheades was glad to tell all about the experience that he and his mate Jonathan Anderson went through to haul in this huge fish. Sheades says; It was right off the beach in 35 feet of water. There’s tons of menhaden out there for them to feed on, and the gill-net boats are working close to shore, creating a chum slick that attracts the tuna. Sheads also says that the fish was caught around 3.5 miles southeast of Beaufort Inlet and that he and Anderson were trolling with a blue and white ballyhoo skirt when the record bluefin tuna struck. Joe Shute, who makes and sells these lures in Morehead City says that blue/white, pink/white, and candy apple red lures have all been very productive in the area lately.
This hot streak of big fish in the Morehead City area is likely to continue well into the winter, so get your rods out of storage and head to the coast to try your luck. Who knows, maybe you can land the next official record bluefin tuna.
I cut and paste this article from the Aquaflauge site on my Facebook Page. I thought it would make good reading for these cold winter days. Don't know about y'all but I'm ready to get on the water!!!
We are looking forward to seeing everyone there!

6th Annual Saltwater Seminar
Coastal Carolina University's Saltwater Fishing Club is hosting their 6th Annual Seminar
on February 21st, 2015 at 10AM (Doors open at 9AM)
Below is a link to where a pair of gill netters in Virginia were caught with thousands of pounds of illegal fish this past weekend. Just last month two commercial gill netters were caught here in Wilmington with 16 times their legal limit. Glad to see them cracking down on those that refuse to follow the law.
Jim Bown the Captain of the "Stickslinger" is shaking the winter blues in the Keys. It's tuff being them.
Meanwhile Larry Spainhour of the "7th Heavan" is catching marlin in Cabo. UPDATE: Larry said "knock the rooster fish off his bucket list".
This reporter is at the OIFC putting a heat lamp in the minnow tank. lol
The staff at the OIFC store tells me the tele is ringing off the hook from folks wanting to know if the SKA Championship is coming to Ocean Isle Beach. Truthfully, we don't know. I can tell you we at OIFC are working VERY hard to accomplish that, but to my knowledge, no decision has been made by the SKA as to where it will be held. To be sure, our southern Brunswick County area[OIB/Holden Beach/Shallotte] would be honored if that decision were made. Our community of towns has joined together to do everything possible to put out the welcome mat for the SKA. Hopefuly we will succeed however I'm sure other communities are putting forth the same effort we are.
Standby, as I expect they will make a decision soon.
I apoloize for the tardiness in getting the Rodeo checks and trophies taken care of. As many of you know my wife is having health issues which reqiure us to be out of town right much. BUT here is a list of the payouts. I have sent our bookkeeper an email to do the checks.
