Jekyll Island Fishing Report

Capt. TJ Cheek
September 29, 2011
St. Simons Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fall fishing is already in full swing. After the tropical weather brushing the coast of St.Simons Island and Jekyll Island left the offshore fishing basically pointless, the above average inshore bite has saved the day.

Normally this time of year the inshore fishing for Trout and Redfish is decent, but so far this year it is just outstanding. We have brought in catches of 40+ keeper fish and had overall catches of over 100 fish including throw backs.

Right now we are experiencing some very high tides and that has made the water a little muddy, but it also has allowed us to do some awesome sight fishing in the flooded grass for Redfish in the Jekyll Island area.

The Trout have been on the move which has made us do a lot of running and gunning, or as I like to call it "search and destroy". Once you find a good school of Trout you can go to work filling up the cooler.

The size of the fish has been mixed. There are plenty of keepers with an equal amount of small fish and some occasional gator Trout.

The Redfish have had a slow start but seem to be picking up quickly. Last year was phenominal and I was worried that we wouldn't have the numbers that we saw in 2010 but we've started catching quite a few and with the Trout bite already way ahead of last year, I am excited to see what late Fall will have in store for us.

St. Simons Island Fishing Forecast:

It's only going to get better for the rest of the Fall season. I expect the hot bite to come to an end somewhere around mid to late December depending on the water temperature.

Target Species:

Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Bull Redfish
