Recent Fishing Charters- News From the Deck Summer vacation is definitely in full swing! We can tell because we haven’t had a day off in… I have no idea how long!

We’ve been blessed with some awesome weather although there have been some days that afternoon thunderstorms forced us to call it a day early. Here is what we’ve been up to; Offshore Fishing Charter Report – St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island I want to let you know up front that..
When people ask me what time of year is best to fish here, there is really no right answer. However, one of my favorite months is May. It’s not exactly the easiest month to fish, but there are a lot of options and some really cool things happen. This May has been no different. It’s been a lot of fun, with some tough days and some phenomenal days mixed throughout. At the beginning of May the Tripletail fishing was very strong. There were a lot of big fish around, but as the month went on there were more and more..
“The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive, but attainable. A perpetual series of occasions for hope.” What is it about fishing that makes us love it? Is it really that much fun to feel an animal fighting with everything that it has in the hopes of preserving its own life? Is it that we just love eating fish? I think that for those of us that have a true passion for the sport, it goes far deeper than that. It’s a game of chess between you and the fish. It’s your preparation and..
Every Spring comes with challenges. The water temperature bounces up and down and the fish are scrambling all over the place to stay comfortable and certain species wait for the magic number before moving back into the area. The wait is finally over! The inshore fishing is pretty good right now and we’ve had some great days of Trout fishing as well as Tripletail fishing. We try to make it easy on you. You don’t have to decide what kind of fish you want to target. Just let us know a little bit about your group and what kind of..

Triple Fishing Charters – Jekyll Island – St. Simons Island Tripletail was really good a couple of weeks ago, then it got bad, and now it’s good again! Today I went out and we saw a lot of fish.

Coastal Georgia Fishing Report 4/18/14 It’s that time to keep me away from sharp objects. The weather so far this week SUCKS! Seriously? 25 knot winds every day? COME ON MAN! Tripletail Fishing Report I could go on for days about the weather, but I know you really want to hear about the fishing. This past weekend we mainly focused on Tripletail fishing. Word has definitely gotten out as there were probably 30 boats out there looking for Tripletail this weekend. The fish were popping up pretty decent on Saturday and we..
Tripletail Fishing in Georgia has finally kicked off! That’s the biggest news in this week’s fishing podcast. There has been a lot of overall improvement in the fishing, but by far my favorite part of this week’s news is the arrival of the Tripletail. The first fish to arrive are almost always the biggest that you will see for the season on average. The later it gets in the season, the more small fish you will see. It also seems that you will see less big fish. This year has been no different so far as the fish that are..
This week I just have to apologize. I didn’t really get on the phone and gather up the report like I would like to due to being sick. I had to get my dad to cover my trips for me, and I’ve been down for the count. So this podcast might be a little rough. The good news is that the Whiting are here and the average size has improved dramatically. Yesterday (Thursday) we were able to catch close to 100 on 2 Kids Fishing trips and they were mostly nice fish. The Trout fishing continues to be tough. The..
After several tough years in the saltwater fishing tournament world, the Southern Kingfish Association (SKA) closes it’s doors. With escalating costs and dwindling participation and sponsorships, it comes as no surprise. In the good ol’ days, you could put 200 gallons of gas in your offshore boats for $300 or less. You could afford to spend another $240 on live Blue Runners and Goggle Eyes and it was still affordable for a team of average Joes to compete. Now with 200 gallons of marine fuel costing $1,000 or more, it’s not feasible for those of us that aren’t making a..
Golden Isles Fishing Podcast Episode 8: Sushi Fastballs, Peeled Prawns, and Warm Up Already! Sushi fastballs? Really? Yeah… it’s just a way that I have described this phenomenon to my customers in the past and it seemed to resonate with them and help improve their angling skills so I figured I would share it in this podcast. But yeah, it’s kind of weird. Capt. TJ Cheek’s Podcast Fishing Report for St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and Brunswick, GA Here is a quick summary of the podcast, just give it a listen for all the details. In this report I talk..
