St. Simons Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
This fishing report for St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island is an easy one. The inshore fishing is just plain awesome. The Trout and Redfish are stacked up and hungry.
Bull Redfish are here and biting on cut mullet, pogies, and crabs. There have been some 20 fish days recently and if you've ever caught a Bull Redfish, you know that is a back breaking day!
The Trout and Redfish have been really chewing. Live shrimp, Gulp baits, DOAs, and a laundry list of hardbaits have been very effective. The Trout have been nailing the baits so hard that they almost take the rod out of your hands before you can react.
I've had my best luck on the higher tides, last of incoming and first of outgoing.
St. Simons Island Fishing Forecast:
The inshore fishing is only going to get better and more reliable. As the water temperature settles into the mid to upper sixties, the fish will get into a pretty predictable pattern and you will likely find the fish is the same honey hole trip after trip. The Bull Redfish will be leaving soon, so get after them while you can.
