St. Simons Island Fishing – Jekyll Island Fishing – Sea Island Fishing

January Saint Simons Island fishing report. With the warmer temperatures earlier this month, we saw plenty of speckled trout in 4-8 feet of water around Jekyll Island, Saint Simons, and Cumberland Island.  Black drum and redfish were in the mix as well in nearby areas.  As Temps cooled back down, it became more of a winter pattern with the quality trout feeding on lower stages of the tide deep in the back rivers.  Redfish continue to feed on similar tide stages in back water holes, and the flats fish are bunching up in the shallows on low water waiting for a well presented fly or lure.  This fishery should just continue to improve over the upcoming month.

Nearshore fishing remains strong with Bull Reds, Black Sea bass, Sheepshead, and even black drum patrolling the wrecks.  This will continue to be a great trip option for lots of action into the spring months.  -Capt. Rob

Redfish push into feeder creeks in the winter months and are always eager to feed on soft plastics!

Look for schools of fish to hold around structure in winter months
