August/September Nearshore/Offshore Report

Scott OwensGeorgia Fishing Reports

Summer is officially over and this current cold front is more than likely gonna push our large silver friends back south, but it was a banner year for us as far as tarpon fishing goes. Bait fishing, plug fishing, and fly fishing all produced successful results on a very regular basis. We were also blessed with an early run of bull redfish over the summer, and this bite has really fired up over the past couple weeks, and should only get better throughout the month of October. As much as I hate to see summer pass us by it is nice to feel that crisp chill of fall in the morning knowing fishing can be as good as it gets. Offshore has been typical for the summer months. The further you go, the better the results. We have had some banner trips the past couple months with great catches of vermillion snapper, red snapper, cobia, mangrove snapper, triggerfish, etc. As the water cools the cobia action should pick up, along with larger black sea bass, and the trophy species will push in a bit closer to shore as well as the migratory pelagic species out in the gulf stream.
