While the weather has warmed considerably, we have not changed our winter pattern of fishing. With waters still below 68 degrees, we've concentrated on redfish and speckled trout in deeper depths around low tide. Forage fish, shrimp, and crustaceans are still on the small side, so we have been matching the hatch with small finesse plastics, and opting for the smallest liveliest shrimp we can grab out of the bait well. From 3/7 thru 3/16 we had anglers catch and release over a 100 speckled trout and red fish. At the end of the week we were met with slick seas and ran east to work over the near shore wrecks for black sea bass and we were not disappointed! Anglers Warren Morgan and brother-in-law Charlie combined for nearly a hundred sea bass using jigs and cut bait.
With the water heating up, the range of species to be caught will increase dramatically, as sharks, whiting, triple tail, flounder and cobia, amongst others will join the mix. Feel free to e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org for any tips or info if you are fishing the Golden Isles. We still have a few triple tail trips open in April and May for those looking to sight fish those floating prehistoric brawlers!
