I’m sorry that I haven’t been posting as often as normal but my schedule has been very full running two and three trips a day lately. I wanted to use this day of bad weather to catch up and get a fishing report out there to update everyone on what has been happening.
The reef 1o miles offshore of St. Simons Island has produced a really great bite but the average quality of the fish is pretty low. There are some mondo Sea Bass and plenty of Summer Trout. We are still catching the Bull Redfish as well.
One of my customers even caught a small Grouper out there. I’m not entirely sure what kind of Grouper it is but it gave him a pretty good fight on light tackle.
Inshore fishing has been tough but for those of us that are willing to get back in the creeks and hunt down a bite it has been very rewarding. We got on a great Trout bite a few days ago and had an average size of around 18 inches. That is pretty solid!
The Kids Fishing Trips have been awesome with plenty of Whiting to catch as well as Dogfish and of course the good ol’ Stingray. My customers Bill and Grace had a great afternoon yesterday and Grace boated a ton of fish before the rains came.
Look for the Tripletail to be here any day now and for the inshore fishing to fire off. I’m also itching to do some Shark fishing and it won’t be long before they show up. We just need a little warm weather!
— check out Goliath Grouper (the one the boy is holding) – was it somewhat purple / blackish in color?
It was black, but I was thinking it looks more like a snowy than anything.
