It’s been an amazing year. We’ve had a few years of dealing with weather or water issues that have made the fishing difficult but this year we’ve had smooth sailing and the fishing has been incredible. This Tarpon season has been no exception. Tarpon Fishing Report for St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island The Tarpon fishing has been excellent this year and although we’ve had a couple of Nor’easters come through and change it up a bit here and there, we’ve been able to maintain a solid fix on the fish. Tarpon for Fox Sports Outdoors One of these weather..
Summer vacation might be coming to a close but the Tarpon fishing is just getting warmed up. We know that it’s time for the kids to head back to school but we’re thankful for a summer that brought us some great customers, decent weather, and some amazing fishing opportunities. Now that summer vacation is almost over, we’re setting our sights on one of our favorite times of year; Tarpon season. It’s time to get out there early, catch some Pogies, and put some giant silver dinosaurs in the air. You’ll never see a bunch of fishing guides happier to get..
This summer came in with a bang and it has continued to sizzle. We couldn’t be happier to have had the fortune of clean water, plenty of fish, and agreeable weather. It’s really a nice break to have some things line up in our favor. This is going to be a short and sweet report because the simple fact is that the fishing is hot and if you’re not here you’re missing out. Tarpon Fishing My favorite fish has been stealing the show lately. The Tarpon fishing has been really strong and I’m looking forward to watching it get even..
It’s way more fun to write fishing reports when there are so many things going on at the same time. This year we are seeing some of the best fishing we’ve seen in years. Inshore Fishing Report We’ve been catching loads of Trout and that has remained our main target. Cumberland Beach has been hot although the average size of the fish has been 13 inches or so. It’s hard to beat catching 100 or more fish in just a half day even if there are only 10 keepers in the mix. When quality is more important than quantity we..
One of the best things about the job that we get to do is knowing that no two days will be the same. At the same time, that is the one thing that can make this job tough! The bite changes, the clients change, and the weather changes. We have to constantly remain fluid and be willing to adapt to all of these changes. I recently had a customer that really put my ability to adapt to the test. We had an inshore trip scheduled to fish for Trout, Redfish, etc. and I had an arsenal of light tackle in..
The past few months of leisure fishing and unseasonably warm weather have been very enjoyable. We have been able to fish several times a month at a slower pace. December through February is generally our down time. It gives us a chance to catch our breath from the non-stop summer and fall fishing season. It is a chance to catch up on family time. Our bodies also appreciate the break from 4:30 AM wake up calls, daily boat washings, and the sun-up to sundown go-go-go. However, when March comes in like a lion and begins its exit as a lamb..
So I’ve been getting a lot of calls from folks looking to book trips for this year. A common questions is “What will be biting for the time I’m here?” This isn’t always easy to answer as the fish do their own thing a lot of times and all we can do is base a guess off of what we have seen in years past. I’ll do my best to give you a guide for the best fish to target this year while you are staying at St. Simons Island or Jekyll Island. Since January is almost over, I’ll start..
October was a phenomenal month for both inshore fishing and Bull Reds. Hurricane Matthew slowed us down just before kissing the shores of the Golden Isles at the beginning of the month. After it passed through, we had to wait for the marina to restore power and obtain bait before we were able to get back on the water. Although Matthew caused significant damage to the marina and St. Simons Island, the fish were laughing and thumbing their fins in his face. The Bull Red’s had our clients excited, happy and quickly worn out as they provided that addictive..
July was an incredibly busy and productive month. The weather was very cooperative for which we are thankful. The inshore bite remained steady in spite of flood tides and extreme heat. As previously reported, the Shark bite was crazy good and the Tarpon are offering just as much adventure. August will be prime for Shark/Tarpon so call soon to reserve your trip. When reserving your Tarpon trip, remember you will need a minimum of 6 hours. This will give you adequate time to find and catch the live bait, then move on to the Tarpon hunt. We received a..
June was a CRAZY good month for Shark and expect July to be the same if not better. The Shark bite offered big adventures for families and adrenaline junkies alike. Grown men were begging for mercy as the big boys put some drag on the reels they won’t soon forget. Tarpon have been spotted and should be here in full force by mid-July. Some have already been hooked and gone airborne in their pre-season show of acrobatics. Trout have been steady and during the first part of June we had to cull through some shorts. But by the end of..
