St. Simons Fishing Report

Capt. TJ Cheek
July 16, 2011
St. Simons Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

The inshore fishing at St. Simons Island has been smokin' hot!

Although some folks are always taking the gloom and doom attitude and saying "last year the fishing blah blah blah". This year is simply outstanding.

We have had some of the biggest Trout on average that I have seen in a while. The bite on Cumberland beach rocked. The Redfish are here and seem to have had a successful spawn considering the nice mix of size classes. The Trout are starting to become nicely mixed as well. The Flounder are THICK.

What more can you ask for?

Our local bait is just now getting to the perfect size to fish with. Fall is right around the corner and it looks like things are shaping up for a banner year.

This week I had Butch Freeman and his family out fishing the St. Simons and Jekyll Island area and we pounded the fish. It would be tough to estimate how many fish we caught total, but we brough 11 Redfish, 11 Flounder, 2 Black Drum, and 1 Trout to the cleaning table.

Don't believe the doom and gloom. The fishing is great and the best is yet to come. I'm already itching to blister the inshore critters this Fall.

Look for areas with deep water nearby where you have heavy shell banks nearby with a sand / shell mix on the bottom. I like to look for anything that will change the flow of the current and create a rip or eddy. The trusty popping cork with your choice of boat should do the trick.

Tight lines and cheers from the coast!
