Scott OwensGeorgia Fishing Reports

We’ve had some stellar days on the water in Coastal Georgia as of late. A few days of nice weather really fired up the bite and spring like things began to occur. Trout are filtering into a few spots a little more “local” and while not fast and furious we were able to get on a good steady bite of solid quality fish on some of our more blustery days over the past week or so. When the wind lays there have been loads of reds swimming and sunning in the clear shallows giving up plenty of shots. They have been rather finicky some days requiring precise presentations to get the reward, but with plenty of shots available quite a few nice fish have come to hand. We also got out on the local reefs a few days recently to find hoards of seabass, Bull Reds, black drum, and sheepshead eager to please.

Our tagging projects continue to produce useful data as Ashley recaptured this fish that I tagged back in June that grew over 6 inches as of March 1st, and Teddy recaptured one of Capt. Scotts’ tagged fish from last June that grew nearly 7 inches in a similar timeframe.

The fish above was recaptured on 3/1/14, and was originally caught and tagged on 6/13/13 by the young man below.
