Spring 2020 fishing report.
As a mild summer comes to an end and spring rushes in, warmer temperatures bring migrating birds, fish, and people to our local barrier Islands here in Coastal Georgia.
Spring is a transition month and March in particular always has some surprises. The last several years Mother Nature throws one last curveball at our coast trying to sneak in one more cold front before the Southeastern trade winds keep her cold air pushed far north.
Inshore fishing for
Trout, redfish, and Black drum stays strong provided you know where to find them as they move from their winter stays to their summer homes. As the glass minnows, shrimp, and mullet fill our estuaries and warm humid mornings become a regular thing fishing really starts to heat up.
The early morning top water bite is excellent and the old trusty popping Cork and live shrimp never fail! if you are looking for a fun morning or afternoon it’s a great time of year!
It’s also time for spring break! Family outings and kids trips are great ways to make family memories and get the kids off Technology and outside. Bull Whiting, small sharks, Croakers, and more can be found fishing with bottom rigs and the action is always constant. A 2 or 3 hour afternoon trip for kids 12 and under is generally sufficient unless they have spent a lot of time on the water fishing and then we would probably suggest one of the inshore or near shore trips for trout and redfish.
Near Shore Action
Nearshore action on the reefs and wrecks stays strong through winter and into summer. Jogging diamond jigs off the bottom will produce loads of strikes! Black Sea Bass, Weakfish, Bluefish, Bull Reddrum, Spanish mackereland more can be caught in the spring at these artificial reefs which range from 10 to 15 miles off the beach.
Booking your trip.
Southeastern Angling offers guided light tackle and fly fishing charters year round in both inshore and near shore waters. Days fill up fast so make sure you call in advance to book during peak months from the middle of March through September.
