Winter recap and early Spring report -Capt. Aaron
It’s been a challenging winter season to say the least, with a surplus of precipitation and an exceptional number of windy and cloudy days. That being said, Aaron and his guests have had some very fun days chasing redfish deep in the golden isles backcountry. Small creeks have provided a refuge from the breeze and when the fish are happy and swimming a bit, they have been eager to eat properly presented fly’s as well as artificial lures.
On the better weather days we found nice groups of reds in less than a foot of water deep in the creeks just waiting for a meal. We are all hoping for a more typical winter season in 2021 with extra clean water and large schools of happy fish in the shallows, but I guess we will see when the time arrives.
Reds and Trout
Spring has sprung, went away for a minute, and is back again this week. Redfish are still hanging in the creeks as well as the more expansive flats as they become more active. Trout fishing has been picking up with some quality fish in the mix. It’s about time to try out the topwater bite early on the overcast days. We just need a bit more bait to pile into our inshore waters in order to kick off that action.
Pretty soon the tripletail should begin to trickle in to our coastal waters. The early arrivals are generally on the larger side and provide exceptional sight fishing opportunities. Bait, fly, and artificial will all get the job done with this challenging and unique fishery that we are fortunate enough to have right here in the Golden Isles of Georgia.
Flood Tide Reds
One of our favorite sight fishing scenarios is also coming soon. As water temperatures warm, flood tide fishing for tailing reds in the grass will begin. Sight casting these tailing redfish in the grass is without a doubt one of the most visual ways to target these fish.
Kids and Family Trips
Springtime kicks off our typical kids and family fishing trips. Whiting is the primary target in March and April, and the action has been solid as of late. The bite should continue to improve over the next month or so. As we get into May, small and medium sharks of many different varieties will spice up the action. This has been Captain Aaron’s Winter recap and early Spring report. Thank you for reading.
