St Simons Island Fishing Still Hot

Eddie (roperdoc), Josh and Michael headed east from Athens to hit the marsh again. The timing couldn’t have been better. Except for low slack tide, which seemed to last forever, the bite was good all day. The outgoing tide produced the best bite, but the incoming brought bigger fish and oddly enough, a pile of reds. The outgoing tide was a good indication of how healthy and strong the trout population is as we had trout from 6” to 16”. (It was a little discouraging at first as we weeded threw a ton of shorts).  At one point the doc went 5 for 5 on one small hump for the reds. The trout that were with the reds were absolute chunks including a true gator roperdoc caught that we all thought was another good red. We caught fish shallow on the popping corks with DOA shrimp and liveys. We also got bit good in 6 -12 ft with the slip floats and live shrimp. Water was clean and green! These guys are great anglers and a blast to fish with. Thanks guys for another great day in the river!
