Now that it’s halfway through April we are getting back into the swing of the busy season. I have to say that I’m glad that March is over as it is one of the toughest months of the year to fish, and this one was exceptionally tough with abnormally low temps. April has brought in uptick in the fishing department but it has been no walk in the park. We’ve dealt with wind, dirty water, and rain almost all month. When the weather has cooperated, though, it has been pretty fun. April Fishing Top Pick – Tripletail Fishing As of..
Well it’s been a long winter and the warmer temps and calmer days seem to have anglers getting their plans made for Spring Break fishing trips. We’ve been fortunate to be busy the last couple of weeks and our time has been spent inshore fishing for Trout and Redfish, Whiting fishing on kids trips, and on the nearshore reefs on the nicer days fishing for Sheepshead. Spring Break Fishing Forecast for St. Simons Island I’ll give you the forecast for the next few weeks before I get into the report. Right now the inshore fishing is really inconsistent. One day..
Inshore and Offshore Fishing Report for St. Simons Island February can be a tough month to predict ahead of time, especially on the inshore side of the house. Each year seems to be different and can range from absolutely outstanding to down right brutal. This year seems to be somewhere in the middle but definitely above average. In January the inshore fishing was just tough. We were able to find fish but the weather put a damper on everything with high winds and rain. Couple that with some big tides and you have..
St. Simons Island Winter Fishing Report 2015 This winter season has had some highs and lows which have been dictated mostly by the weather. We’ve been hampered by some days of high winds, big tides, and rain. Between bouts with nasty weather we have been able to find some pretty good fishing. Inshore we are catching Trout, Redfish, and Sheepshead and on the reefs we are finding Sea Bass and Bull Reds. To find the fish inshore we need a few things to come together. First we need some favorable tides, preferably a day with a mid morning to mid-day..
Complete Tackle List For Inshore and Nearshore Fishing in Georgia Waters If you’re new to fishing in Georgia and you are overwhelmed by all of the tackle choices out there, this blog post is just for you. As a fishing guide here in Georgia, I have to keep my tackle simple but versatile. I can’t keep every lure known to man in my boat and I have to make sure that whatever I use, it’s simple enough for a novice to catch on quickly. For that reason, my tackle box might not be the treasure trove of cool stuff and..
We have been boatless for about 3 weeks while our new boat is being built and the Everglades was getting some warranty work done. That has limited our time on the water and given us a break to spend time with other hobbies like hunting. With that being said, we still know what’s going on out there! We’ve been fortunate enough to be invited on some trips with friends and spend some time fishing for ourselves. Here is what I can tell you… the Trout and Redfish bite has been really good and the Sheepshead fishing is getting better and..
Fishing with Hunter Banks of Asheville North Carolina On Tuesday November 26th, 2014 my wife and I had the pleasure of fishing with Jason of Hunter Banks Fly Fishing Outfitters in Asheville North Carolina. We were on vacation for our 5 year anniversary and about 3 weeks prior to our trip we started the booking process with another guide from the area. After trying to secure a day of fishing with the first guide and some “spotty” communication at best, we still had not gotten any confirmation for our trip. We were really looking forward to doing some fly fishing..
Peak Inshore Fishing Time for Georgia Coast Although we have been plagued by wind, rain, and cold weather, the fishing has still been somewhere between good and excellent on most days. Except for a couple of days when the water clarity was pretty nasty due to a combination of weather factors and extreme tides we have been doing really well on both Trout and Redfish. For the next several weeks I expect that we will continue to have some great days as long as we can get decent weather during the prime tides. Sheepshead are starting to become a regular..
It’s that time of year where we can expect to just pound on the fish. Trout are our target of choice for those that want to keep some fish for dinner and for those that want to catch loads of fish and don’t mind releasing some fish, Redfish are also a major target. Over the last week the full moon tides have had the water churned up and muddy but starting this week we will see the return on premium tides and cleaner water. So far the weather looks like it’s going to cooperate as well. A recent inshore fishing..
It’s inshore fishing prime time! This is the time of year when the fishing heats up, yet for some reason, business slows down. If you want to catch Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, and Sheepshead this is the time to do it. We’ve been hammering the Trout and slot Redfish as well as the Bull Reds. Over the next couple of weeks the water temperature will continue to cool and the Trout fishing will continue to get better. The Bull Reds will move out once the water temps dip down around 60 but we can hardly complain since we’ve been catching..
