Fishing

  • OIFC encounters the Gulf Coast

      With Christmas quickly approaching, most folks either have their head wrapped around family gatherings or wrapping presents for the family gatherings. This eventually leads folks to forgetting about the outdoors and how much fun you can have. Whether it’s fishing for trout in the skinny backwaters or calling in a drake mallard from your duck blind, the week of Christmas is the perfect time to teach and perform these activities with your family members.

  • Good fishing in winter weather

     Most outdoorsmen are putting their coveralls on to go sit in the deer stand or duck blind. Here along our coast you will still see plenty of boats cruising up and down the waterway chasing after some good wintertime fishing.

Our water temperatures are hovering just a little bit above average, but this next cold front should get us around the 50-degree mark.

  • Speckled trout, redfish prime winter targets

     

    The Thanksgiving holiday is usually the last celebration for most vacation homeowners in the Brunswick Islands. After this last celebration, many will winterize their homes and will return just before the Easter holiday to get things back up and running again. Just because everyone leaves does not mean that the fishing stops. The fishing can see some really good days for those willing to deal with the cooler temperatures. Speckled trout and redfish are the two prime targets through the winter months.
