January

The start of the year is a very good time for inshore and nearshore fishing, as you’re very likely to encounter Bull Redfish, Black Seabass, and Sheepshead.

February

If you love sight fishing, St. Simons is a paradise for you this time of year. Find a skiff and get to work! Schools of Redfish still abound in the flats.

March

The water temperature returning to the mid-sixties means we can expect Tripletail and Cobia to make an appearance soon. Switching from the flats to creeks is a good idea.

April

Sharks are due to make an appearance in the southern waters near Jekyll Island. If you want to take a crack at a Blacktip, this is your chance.

May

This is when it starts getting really hot, so bear in mind that you’ll have the best results if you start fishing as early as you can. Redfish, Trout, and Flounder are the main inshore biters.

June

Come summer, expect to find migratory Kingfish around wrecks, along with Cobia and Snapper. A battle with a Kingfish is hard-fought, but you’ll be back for more in no time.

July

It’s still too early for serious Tarpon fishing, so most anglers will prefer sticking to the shell beds and creeks near St Simons Sound. Delicious Flounder abound!

August

Tarpon season is upon us! Going after the Silver King is very popular, so make sure to book your trip well in advance. It’s also not rare to nab a large Shark as an added bonus.

September

Huge Bull Redfish move into coastal waters sometime in early September, to the delight of local anglers. They can be found all over the coast, from Little St Simons to Jekyll Island.

October

Two things are of importance in October. The first is Georgia White Shrimp, which anyone visiting the Golden Isles needs to try. The second is the fact you can catch 50–100 fish on a good day.

November

Barring extraordinary weather conditions, Redfish and Trout fishing should be booming this time of year. Have you ever seen 50 Redfish clumped up in mere inches of water? You can now.

December

As the year draws to an end, the water temperature should remain in the 40–50°F range. Local anglers know that you should come after a cold front passes over to get the best fishing.

2 adults and 4 kids 9-13. Richard did a great job with all. Caught fish! Caught rays! Highly recommend if you have kids looking for something to do other than play with their phones! 3 hours was the perfect amount of time.

Capt. Richard was great with the ‘kids’. He got my boys comfortable and ready to catch some fish! We caught close to 20 fish in three hours and learned a ton so we could enjoy surf fishing on our own. Highly recommended!

Great morning on Jekyll Island... first fishing experience that my wife has actually enjoyed- and she out-fished me! For those not inclined to spend 4 hours on a boat — or even those looking to do a little something unique — this is a great trip!
