St. Simons Island Fishing Report

Capt. TJ Cheek
December 1, 2011
St. Simons Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

The fishing at St. Simons has taken a dip lately. After an outstanding summer and early Fall the fishing has slown down. There are still Redfish in the back of the creeks and the Trout are still here, but the bite has been lacking.

My guess is that this is due to an abundance of shrimp in the rivers right now. The fish aren't having to gang up in their usual ambush locations to get a meal. They can eat anywhere. I've seen evidence of this everywhere I have been, from shrimp jumping by the thousands in 3 to 6 feet of water, to Trout with shrimp whiskers hanging out of their mouths.

I believe that with the cold snap that we have right now coupled with a little bit of rain finally, we will see the bite bounce back.

We had a decent day yesterday with a mixed bag of Trout, Redfish, Sheepshead, and Black Drum and there are finally some boats coming back with buckets full of Trout.

Often times when the warm weather overstays its welcome and the bite slows in November, we will see a strong December and January bite.

Don't winterize your boat just yet, the best fishing might just be a few days away.

The Northeast winds have been persistant and nice calm days have been hard to come by. All in all it feels more like March than November.

Don't let a bump in the bite stop you from fishing St. Simons and Jekyll Island. The fish ARE HERE and they are going to get back to normal soon enough.

Tight lines!
