The Bite Goes On....St Simons Fishing Report 7/11/11
You gotta love it when a plan comes together! Rodney, Carol, Jason & Taylor made the 16 hour trek from Arkansas to visit the Golden Isles and throw in a little fishing trip. The day started off with a pretty good Redfish bite, although we are still catchin a lot of juvenile Reds. We were about to head out to the sound when the larger fish showed up, including a real baby bull that Taylor landed like a pro.
Being from a land locked state, shark fishing was definitely on the menu, and boy did they show up and how! Jason started the shark show off with a couple nice 2-3 ft Blacktips. After catching the usual suspects, Daddy finally showed up in the form of a Blacktip right at 100 lbs. Rodney got to shed a few pounds as he fought this beast at high noon for nearly half and hour! This Blacktip got airborne, and stayed as green as any I've seen in a while.
To round out the tour, we were looking for some more tablefare to go with the Reds--Flounder was next on the menu, and although the numbers have tapered off, the size has definitely increased. Carol took the big flattie prize with a real doormat right at 4 1/2 lbs. Thanks guys for some hot fishing in some sure enough hot weather! By the way, it was 110 degrees in Arkansas today-just sayin'
