Bull Redfish Are Thick in The Golden Isles!

St. Simons Island Bull RedfishBull Redfish Guide – St. Simons Island – Jekyll Island – St. Marys, Georgia

Lately I have been hearing stories about everyone catching Bull Redfish while I have been mostly targeting Trout and light tackle Redfish. Well the past several days I have been running one Bull Red trip after another and the bite has been anywhere between good and spectacular!

The bite has been best when the weather has allowed us to get out in front of the island. Right now anything less than a double digit catch on a half day seems like a failure. On days when the weather has been bad, like yesterday, we have retreated into the river where the bite has not been as steady but the fish are bigger.

We’ve also had some bonus guest with some big spinner sharks, finetooths, black noses, and whiting. We even had a really cool manatee pay us a visit at the dock yesterday and drink from the water hose for 30 minutes.

The Trout bite is picking up and getting on track for a great Fall season. The phone is ringing for November dates so I suggest booking now if you want to reserve any weekend or holiday fishing.

  1. Hi I was looking into fishing for some bull redfish or a flood tide in mid November, do you know if you’ll have a flood tide available or if there are still bulls around then?

  2. My wife and I would like to have a chance at catching 40in. Reds, and try for triple tails . We will be in your area on the 12th of this month please let me know if you have a opening for that day.

      Marvin, Sorry I rarely check for these comments. October is your best month for bull reds, although the nearshore reef fishing for them can be excellent Dec-April. Sightfishing Tripletail is best from mid april – early Sept, with marker fishing for them best from late May-sept.
