 Memorial Day here on St Simons Island ushers in many great fishing opportunities! Along with our year round resident trout, redfish and sheepshead, others such as tarpon, flounder, triple tail, sharks and jacks will join the party! Water temperatures will reach 75-78 degrees and many fish will settle into predictable feeding locations. The feeding stations and times will be many and varied though as the marsh fills with forage. Mullet, menhaden, shrimp, crabs and many other food supplies will be readily available 24 hours a day! So what exactly does an angler do to compete with this buffet?

It’s easy to go from hero to zero in this business and learning to adapt can eliminate the zeros! Lately the inshore bite has been tricky as the emergence of bait and rising water temps has the fish in free range mode and quite scattered. I explained to today’s group that we could shake the bushes for trout, reds and flounder, or we may consider looking for trophy or oversized fish.

Finally! I got to fish with my favorite fishing partner! Most of you know, while Michelle is a wonderful mother and wife, she doubles as one of the most fearless and accomplished all around anglers I’ve ever fished with. A “natural”, so to speak. Light tackle fishing for red fish with artificial lures is her favorite frustration, but she has put me to shame catching snook, flounder, triple tail and trout as well! I use the word fearless, prudently, as Michelle has fished in everything from named storms to sub-freezing winter days. Well today, ole Momma Nature smiled on us.

February was an absolute wild ride with ice storms, wind, and even record heat. Water temps plummeted and rose drastically in a matter of days. But the trout bite earlier this month was very strong, much like the previous month. The key for us on most trips was to work the deeper areas in 10-20 ft. Clay bottom seemed to be a common factor, and the forage was glass minnows. We mimicked the minnows on light jigheads paired with 3-4” swimbaits in neutral colors.

I definitely would like to thank all the anglers who fished with us these past few weeks, making it our busiest January ever. Many savvy SE Georgia anglers know that the winter months, although cold at times, offers some of the best fishing of the year for trout and red fish. We got a fairly good dose of cold weather, including snow, in many parts of Georgia. Many folks were concerned with the health of trout and shrimp, as water temps dipped below 45 degrees. Thankfully we were very fortunate as our population of shrimp and trout appeared not to sustain any discernable damage. In fact, we had one of our very best months for both reds and trout, following the freezes. Reports from Darien, Richmond Hill, and Savannah confirmed this as well.
