St Simons Island Fishing Report 8-5-11

Headed out with Zach for a half day fishing up around the Hampton.  Water temps were warmer than bathwater at 88 degrees, and dirty like convenience store coffee, not to mention a stifling 93 degrees by 9am with not a breeze stirring!  Zach and I fired everything in the box on a dead low tide that wouldn't seem to turn back in.  Finally as the water did turn back in, we started picking off rat Reds until Zach put the hook in a good keeper. 

Ran out to the beach to see what was happening, but the water was pretty dingy out there, although Zach stuck a pretty good fish that came unbuttoned.  Funny how you can drop a treble hook lure anywhere and have to cut the hooks off it to get it unsnagged, but put one in a good fish and it comes unglued!!!  With the tide turning in pretty quick, we beat up some Flounder holes and ended up with 4 flatties, including two nice ones.  Zach, I had a great time-good thing we had to get back by noon as it dang sure was a scorcher!  Thanks for hanging in there with me in the heat and picking off a few good ones!
