Redfish report for Saint Simons Island Jekyll Island
Fishing has been better than years past this March and picking the right tides has been key. March is a transition month when fish start to move from their winter getaways to their summer homes. With warmer winter weather red fish seem to have changed their winter patterns and moved into creeks instead of flats. Instead of working these shallow flats we have switched to the creeks where clients have caught good number of red drum in the 4-12 pound range.
Also clients can expect to catch black drum and trout in these feeder creeks and flounder have even started to show up. As we move past this last cold that left where water temps in the upper 50’s we expect fishing to continue to improve. As waters around St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island and Sea Island return to their previous temps of close to 70 degrees expect triple tail to show up and cobia are just around the corner as well.
We have plenty of open days left in April so give us a call to set up your fishing charter. St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island are beautiful this time of year and the weather is just right.
