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..
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..
I’ve always really liked fishing in October. You get to experience the beginning of the Fall inshore bite and the warm water species are still around. This makes for a variety of options ranging from Bull Redfish, Trout, and smaller Redfish to Sharks, Tripletail, and the occasional Tarpon. Last month started with a bang but went on to drop some really nasty weather on us towards the end. Usually late September provides some stellar inshore fishing but we were just lucky to get out for a trip here and there. This month you can expect our focus to be on..
If you are planning to come fishing here in Georgia in September or October you are in luck as some of the best fishing of the year is during this time. You can find a wide variety of targets both big and small, edible and for sport only, and the weather can be very pleasant. Tarpon, Bull Redfish, Sharks, and Jack Crevalle When it comes to targeting big fish this time of year, these are the guys (and girls) we are after. Through September we will target Tarpon although we will shift our focus more and more to Bull Redfish..
It’s Tarpon Time in Georgia! We’ve already experienced some excellent Tarpon fishing this year as early as June. The fish are usually a bit harder to pattern early in the season but we have had some days where hundreds of Tarpon have been around the boat showing out. The trouble for me with Tarpon fishing early in the season is that most of the time I don’t have the clientele to really dig hard and work on the fish. It can take patience and a willingness to fail at times. During summer vacation there are..

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..
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.
