St. Simons Island Fishing Report for inshore redfish, black drum, and trout.
Fishing has continued to be steady with crazy warm weather this winter. Lots of smaller trout are around and provide steady action most days while redfish and black drum can be found around oysters on outgoing tides. The waters around St. Simons Island, Sea Island, and Jekyll Island continue to be in the upper 60’s and forage fish such as poggies and mullet are showing up early in big numbers. With the early arrival of these bait fish you can expect some of the migratory fish such as triple tail covia sharks and Tarpon to show up in the next month or two. Redfish will begin to push far into grass flats tailing on crabs and shrimp around Spring tides. Those dates go fast so don’t forget to call in advance to get peaked tides.
Fishing around Cumberland Island and the St. Mary’s area has produce great numbers of trout as well with red Fish and black drum in the mix. Tarpon will begin to move-in around Cumberland in late May and early June so don’t forget to call and book those days in advance as well. Our peak Tarpon season is July August and early September if you were interested in catching a tarpon on fly in coastal Georgia August is your month.
