Summertime…my Favorite Time

Scott OwensGeorgia Fishing Reports

It’s hot, it’s humid, days are long, and I am exhausted.  But it is tarpon season in Coastal Georgia, and I love it! Somedays they will try your patience. However, if you make the right moves, you will be rewarded with one of the most exciting bites in all of fishing! Nothing compares to the silver king flying through the air. The Tarpon bite started early in the Golden Isles this season, and has been consistent throughout. With the current conditions, I expect them to stay with us for a bit.

In addition to the tarpon, jacks, big sharks, and early season bull reds are prowling our coastal waters and sounds.

Inshore fishing has been pretty good considering our 90 plus degree water temperatures at the present time.  Early starts with moving water are key, and fishing a bit deeper and slower has helped to trick the larger sized speckled trout.  Redfish are active on the low tide flats early as they are popping shrimp with reckless abandon at first light making for great surface strikes.  Higher tides are giving us plenty of shots to tailing redfish with light tackle or fly fishing.  Early and late in the day are best. Come get in on the tail end of the summertime action!  –Capt. Rob
