Spring has Finally Sprung

Scott OwensGeorgia Fishing Reports

After a downright miserable winter season (with some great shallow water redfishing on the very rare nice day), the weather gods have finally smiled on us here in coastal Georgia. Sunny skies, warm temps and light breezes as of late have really turned things around. The shallow water bite has been excellent with nice schools of reds in shallow clear water and the best part is that they have been hungry. Creek and deeper water redfish holes have been producing as well with some trout and sheepshead mixed in for good measure. Trout fishing is pretty typical for this time of year with it really hot or really not on most days. This bite should become more consistent over the next few weeks.

Off the beach, black seabass are still abundant close in, with some nice sheepshead if you can get a bait past the bass, and I have heard very promising catches of a wide array of bottom dwellers and some cobia a bit further offshore.

The tripletail are not far off, and some cobia close behind. I suggest booking days for these fish sooner than later as those days fill up quickly. Tis the season to shed some layers and get out on the water, so give us a call and get out there!
