June brought us the first named storm of 2013 and with it a good shot of rain as well. Nevertheless, the warming waters brought redfish, trout, flounder, tripletails, jacks, ladyfish, bluefish, sheepshead, black drum, King Mackerel, black sea bass, cobia, tarpon and of course...SHARKS! St Simons Island is well known as one of the largest breeding zones for sharks on the planet and makes for some great light tackle shark fishing. Don't be fooled though, often you will need to bring out the big guns as the islands waters are full of bigger sharks in the 100-200 lb. range! The summer months in the Golden Isles may offer some of the best fishing for shear variety on the Atlantic Seaboard. See you on the water!
