St. Simons Island - Saltwater Fishing Report
With the Blacktip and Spinner shark migration in full swing all around Coastal Georgia, the fishing is really starting to heat up. Literally... These fish are trying to smoke our reels!!
St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island offer Blacktip and Spinner sharks ranging from 60-120 pounds of solid muscle, initiating a fight that won't be forgotten. These sharks are known for their fight due to the amount of aerobatics while hooked. Seeing a fish of this size flying and spinning through the air is a sight that never gets old and is just as exciting the first time as it is the hundredth time.
Letting the rod and reel do the work during the fight is vital to landing these breeding bruisers. If not, you'll wear yourself out before you wear the shark out.
Along with the annual shark migration, Tarpon also show up in full force. Coastal Georgia and the surrounding areas provide an estuary for breeding Tarpon. These giant silver fish have to feed in order to breed, offering a prime opportunity to catch these highly sought after gamefish.
Tarpon engage in a heart racing, adrenaline pumping fight that will stay with you for years to come. Hang on!! Because once hooked, a Tarpon will skyrocket out of the water and shake their head violently, making them a tricky fish to keep on the line. Once landed, a Tarpon makes for a great picture and an even greater memory.
