As the title say’s fishing has been steadily getting better. Warmer weather has water temperatures on the rise and I have seen several trout cruising the flats around pods of redfish over the past few days. Water quality has also improved now that the 3 rivers that meet the ocean here in the Golden Isles have fallen below their flood stages. The water was clear enough over the past 3 days to see bottom in 3 or 4 feet of water at low tide and when the sun blessed us we were able to see schools of fish cruising at 100 feet! Tuesday I fished a flat to the north that we easily saw over 80 fish on mostly in two’s, and three’s that gave us lots of shots. This flat is one I can only fish when the winds are light (5 or less) and the fish do not shy away from the boat until you are on top of them.
I also had the pleasure of sharing my favorite sport (fly fishing) with a good client of mines twin boys (15) With a day of practice and some patience both landed their first fish on fly the second day. Both were great fish one over 10 pounds. They are now hooked and I hope to see them more often. Their dad has been fishing with me for many years and I think he was more excited to see his boys catch their first fish on fly than they were! Give me a call and lets go catch some fish!
