Fall/Winter Catch Up Report

Scott OwensGeorgia Fishing Reports

Sorry guys, we have been doing some web updates and have plenty of exciting additions coming to our website in the near future. For a quick catch up, the late summer tarpon bite was incredible in southeast Georgia with plenty of fish hooked and landed on bait, fly, and plugs. The big jacks came and went and provided stellar top water action when they were in town. This fall we saw one of the best runs of bull redfish in recent memory here in St. Simons Island with some half day trips tallying over 30 fish. Hopefully the little guys will make it and repopulate our flats in the near future. Summer and fall red fishing was solid whenever the wind cooperated, we had some epic flood tide bites as well as topwater explosions. As the windy winter set in we were able to stay on some healthy groups of creek fish that kept our customers smiling well into the winter regardless of conditions. The fall trout bite as usual didn’t disappoint, and that carried into the October Redbone tournament to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Captains’ Rob And Scott took the top honors Guiding our anglers to 10 of the 14 possible awards including overall grand champions, grand champion angler, and artificial division wins. Offshore fishing out of ST. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and Sea Island was solid through the fall as well with loads of amberjack, sea bass, and vermillion snapper making up the majority of our catches with plenty of red snapper released as well. Winter has been windy and gloomy, but when we do get a bluebird day there are plenty of skinny water reds swimming and crawling in the shallows. Quite a few of these fish have been very large up to the 35 plus inch range. It has been nice in the sunshine, but we have been getting them to eat in the nasty stuff as well. I’m looking forward to the warmer days ahead, but the best sight fishing of the year is now! If you are a little flexible on days and we can get some good weather it is on!
