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 tough conditions.
We did exactly what I recommended in last week’s podcast. We waited for the low tide.
Once the tide got down the water started to slow down and clean up. As soon as it did we started really getting into the fish using both adjustable popping corks and carolina rigs.
In this week’s episode you have a chance to win a fishing reel! Not an el cheapo Wal Mart special… an Avet MXL!
Just give it a listen for details.
