Hot Fishing September & October 2015 Update for St. Simons & Jekyll
Okay fisherman, now is the time to book your fishing charter for our red hot fishing in September and October in and around St. Simons and Jekyll Island! With September and football season kicking in, the temperatures in the air and the sea water cool down and the fish bite gets terrific! The inshore targets species of speckled sea trout and redfish have grown through the summer and are now reaching perfect size for the dinner table. The Redfish (spot tail bass) are hungry and heavy fighters. Nearshore the shark are slowly exiting out of local waters and the giant "Bull" Redfish are moving in! These 20lb to 50lb fish are moving in large schools and it is not unusual to land 10 or more fish on a single charter trip. You can't eat this fish as they are outside legal limits to keep, but wow, do they give you a huge fight! So if you are here on a conference on the coast, a wedding weekend, or just looking for a getaway day with friends, co workers, or family, give us a call immediately. Details are below for each trip.

March through December in the ocean waters of coastal Georgia there is always some thick fishing action going on. Whether its bottom fishing, live bait fishing, trolling, or drifting, exciting catches of fish can be loaded up! Because Georgia has shallow depths offshore (Gulfstream is 100 miles out)our fishing is much more migratory driven and that creates opportunities to experience different species of fish moving in and out of our offshore waters. You can expect to catch the following;
Black Sea Bass
Dolphin (game fish)
