What a Great Week! St Simons Island Fishing Report

Despite getting a few trips blown off the water, we got to get out there with family, friends and charters and take advantage of the great fall bite that has been going on. We had a pretty dynamic representation from the states of California, Massachusetts, Missouri, Kentucky, Alabama and New York. For many, it was their first time in our great marshes, as well as first catches of redfish, trout and flounder. Apparently there truly is a fishing gene, as Michelle's sister Kristen hooked up on her first cast and for a while, we didn't know if she was going to let anybody else catch fish. But the redfish were plentiful that cool morning and everybody got in on the action! While we kept a few fish for the dinner table,
we had an amazing number of redfish releases. We ended the week with Charlie and I pitching docks in the rain. Charlie caught fire with a jig and New Penny Gulp! combo and ended up with one of the nicest slams I've seen this year. Here's where it gets a little weird. Moments before Charlie's biggest flattie of the day, I got bit HARD! I came back with no jig, no nothing. Charlie laughed and tried to suggest cut off from structure. When I cleaned the flounder their was a seven inch mullet in his belly!...AND my jig and plastic.
