Spring Break Family Fishing Report
As a mild winter here in Coastal Georgia comes to an end we at Southeastern Angling look forward to spring and summer. It’s March now and spring break is right around the corner. Families will head to the coast to spend time together and make memories of a lifetime. Fishing and boating can be a great way to make those memories together while experiencing Georgia’s Coastal Islands, estuaries, and waterways. Below I will outline the types of trips that are available during these months.
Inshore fishing Charters during the spring months of March and April offers anglers consistent action for speckled trout, red drum, flounder, and other inshore species. As water temperatures start rising these inshore fish start moving from their winter stays to their summer homes taking advantage of the abundance of food along the way. Live shrimp is the bait of choice as well as an assortment of artificial lures. These trips are great for adults and teens and run 4, 6, or 8 hours.
Kids and Family trips are a very popular choice of families with preteens. These 2 or 3 hour trips target whiting, small sharks, croakers, rays, and more. Along with fishing it’s not unusual to see dolphins and an abundance of bird life. These trips are also a great way to introduce boating and fishing to young children who have not been on the water or in a boat before.
Guided Near Shore trips are great for adults and teens. These trips target artificial reefs 10-15 miles off the coast for black sea bass, weakfish, bluefish, snapper, bull redfish, and more. Most of these fish are caught bottom bumping jigs as well as cut boat and generally offer constant action through out the trip. 4, 6, and 8 hour trips are available.
We also offer fly fishing trips and lessons. If you have any questions or are interested in booking one of our trips don’t wait until the last minute as days book up fast.
Tight lines and remember to unplug and unwind outdoors!
