With a warm winter in the Golden Isles thus far, redfish and trout have remained pretty reliable inshore targets. The redfish are cruising the shallows and the larger trout are hanging in 6-12 feet. Sheepshead are starting to pile up on structure and black drum are close by as well.
This week we are on some very large tidal swings with the full moon, so we decided to head just offshore to our nearshore reefs for some Saint Simons Island fishing. Loads of summer trout (weakfish) up to 4 pounds, countless bluefish, bull reds, red snapper, and of course black sea bass are piled up on structure right now. Cut bait, jigs, and even flies are getting the job done. This fishery will remain strong all winter with sheepshead and black drum filtering in as well till March. Come get out on the water and enjoy one of these warm winter days. –Capt. Rob
