gft

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..

GIFP: Episode 10 | Tripletail Finally Here | Ocean Coming to Life

Fishing report for St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Brunswick, GA

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..

GIFP: Ep. 9 | Whiting Time! | Good Pier Fishing | Prepping for Tripletail

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?

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..

Golden Isles Fishing Podcast – Episode 7 – Gonna Have to Work for It

Fishing Guide

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..

Golden Isles Fishing Podcast: Episode 6 – Trout, Sheepshead, Bull Redfish

Fishing report for St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Brunswick, GA

In spite of the winds that we have had late this week, the fishing has been quite good. Early in the week we had some awesome days to get offshore with some flat calm seas. The Trout bite is still good, but not widespread. The water clarity seems to be best around St. Simons Sound, while most areas to the north and south seem to have a lot of freshwater run off. We are catching most of our Trout in 8 to 15 feet of water around low tide on live shrimp. Sheepshead are being caught in the same areas..

Fishing report for St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Brunswick, GA

Episode 5 of the Golden Isles Fishing Podcast with Capt. TJ Cheek Not a lot has changed overall since last week’s episode in terms of what is biting and the best techniques to catch fish right now around St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island. What is much different this weekend is that the tides are MUCH better compared to last weekend. During the 9 foot tides we dealt with this past weekend my customers were able to fight through and get on a great bite. The Trout, Redfish, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and Flounder were all cooperative in spite of the..

Thanks for checking out episode 4 of the Golden Isles Fishing Podcast.

Golden Isles Fishing Podcast: Episode 2 – February 14, 2014

Fishing report for St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Brunswick, GA

In this episode I recap a week that started out with gorgeous weather and degraded into some awful, windy, and dreary weather. The fishing is hot in certain areas, but it takes a good bit of work right now. You really have to do some moving around until you locate the fish. The forecast for the weekend doesn’t look too bad. Saturday might be a bit windy but Sunday looks like it is going to be gorgeous and probably the best day to venture offshore to do some Sea Bass and Sheepshead fishing. Monday looks great too if you happen..
