OIFC fishing team WINS MARTINIS HOOK A HOO WAHOO TOURNAMENT
After weighing a 74 pound Wahoo last Tuesday, the OIFC fishing team held on to the lead to take first place as well as top Jr. Angler in the Martinis Hook A Hoo Wahoo Rodeo. The team consisted of Capt. Brant McMullan, wife, Amy, Brant's cousin Brian Aycock and Brian's 11 year old son, Austin. The team chose to fish the Black Jack area on Tuesday where they deployed a spread of high speed trolling lures targeting Wahoo. The day yielded Wahoo of 35, 39, 56 and 74 pounds. The great action was consistent with the other 50 competing teams in the tournament that chose to compete throughout the week. Most boats caught multiple Wahoo and as the week progressed, action for Blackfin Tuna and Dolphin began to heat up as well. Top 5 finishers below:
1 Ocean Isle Fishing Center Brant McMullan 74.08
2 Gettin' Jiggy David Braswell 66.86
3 Sing Fling Kevin Singletary 58.50
