April Update for Jekyll Island fishing

Scott OwensGeorgia Fishing Reports

Jekyll Island fishing and the surrounding waters are coming to life as Spring is in full swing.  Specked trout are out on the prowl as long as you can locate some clean water.  There are still plenty of smaller trout around at this time, but the bigger fish are beginning to move out into the sounds and adjacent creek systems.  I expect to see more and more quality trout as May quickly approaches.

This fish ate it hard!!!

Redfish are on one day and off the next, however we have been catching fish in the shallows as well as deep in feeder creeks.  I had a fun morning throwing topwater plugs with Mike in late March, landing several fish over the 30” mark.

In other news for Jekyll Island fishing, black drum and flounder are making their presence felt, and we are even seeing some fun sized jacks that are ready to attack anything that moves.

Nearshore Action

Tripletail are starting to show just off the beach of Jekyll Island, with some quality fish being caught.  This action should continue to pick up into May.  Big Blacktip and Spinner Sharks are also making their summertime push into our coastal waters.  If you want fast action and sore muscles, this is the trip for you.  I recommend booking your St. Simons or Jekyll Island fishing adventure early, as days are filling up fast.  Click here to book! –Capt.
