July 1st Fishing Report from our Recent Charters The biggest news recently from our family has been the birth of our second child, Ethan Wallace Cheek! He was born on June 26th at 12:47 PM and weighed 7 pounds 10 oz. Check him out! Inshore Fishing Report Inshore fishing has been mostly good with some tough days and some stellar days mixed in. We have been fishing around Cumberland Beach as much as possible as the bite has been good and it’s some pretty easy action to get in to. Other days we have had to fish in the river..
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! As tired as we are we are thankful to be on the water every day with great folks. 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..
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..
Spring is in full swing and a lot of cool things are going on right now. The calendar is filling up fast and luckily I have two other boats to help me keep up. To get the best days please call now! 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. Bad luck was the name of our game as we only managed 3 fish but we had plenty more..
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..
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..
Spring Fishing Guide for St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island Fishing Charters Now that Spring is springing, we are starting to see some cool stuff happening. The water temps are rising and what is hopefully the last real cold snap is about to pass through. If I have my way, this will be the last of the cold weather and the water temps can get into the 60s and stay there. So what does this mean for you as a customer? More opportunities. Right now I am focusing on two things; reef fishing and inshore fishing. On the reefs we..
The hardest thing about doing these podcasts so far is finding new things to talk about when there just isn’t much changing. Maybe the water temperature ticks up a degree or two, or the tides are a bit better, or the fishing was just a little better than the week before. Sometimes I think I just end up repeating myself. This week, it’s even tougher. The fishing and weather were not cooperative and that just makes this a tough fishing report to deliver, but I guess you have to take the good with the bad. Last weekend we moved around..
