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

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

TJ Cheek Fishing Reports, Podcasts, Redfish, Sea Bass, Trout 1 Comment

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 inshore, as well as offshore on the reefs.

One new development this week is that we started catching a lot more big Redfish on the reefs while fishing for Sea Bass and Sheepshead.

The weather looks best for fishing on Saturday, while Sunday is predicted to be a washout.

The winner of the reel from last weeks podcast is Ben Rousch. Ben, just give me a shout with your address and I’ll get this reel mailed off to you.

  1. Fantastic!! This was my lucky day! At our retail store we are having a four day sale to celebrate St. Patty’s Day coming up, and I’m wearing green. I guess the Luck’O the Irish be with me today. I’m excited to be your winner, and I can’t wait to pair that Avet reel up with a nice rod, and give it a good workout in May. Another great fishing report today, and I used your advice last weekend to hook up with two monster trout hanging out on the outside bend of a creek up against a steep mud wall in about 13 feet of water just about an hour before low tide. Thanks again for all the great advice to keep your listeners on the fish. I look forward to your next podcast.
