Fishing for monster Redfish at Jekyll Island Georgia

Capt. Richie Lott
November 4, 2017
Jekyll Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

Migration Mania in Coastal Georgia

The fall months are here. This time of year signifies some of the best fishing the Georgia coast has to offer. With falling water temperatures, this is the time to go head-to-head with some of the biggest and baddest Redfish in the United States. September through November is the absolute best time to hunt down these record size bull Redfish.

Claiming to be the number one Redfish location in America carries something with the title. The ability to prove it. But the fishing here speaks for itself. Some of our Georgia local River Redfish can easily top 45 to 50 lb. as seen in the hundreds of photos seen on www.georgiasportfishing.com and social media outlets.

Fresh bait and fishing on bottom is the key to catching these monsters. However, contrary to popular belief, clear or green water is not necessary. In fact, the best fishing for these monsters is normally had in dirty, muddy water. The harder the tide runs the better these Redfish will bite in this area. Once your mindset is changed over to fishing in dirty water, you will likely produce far more monster size Redfish. We often find them by marking them on our Sounder.
