Took Mark and Krista from Waycross out today on a Redfish excursion. St Simons Island Redfishing and many other parts of the coast have been hit or miss, as you're well aware of. But today was different. The first place we came to held quite a few Redfish from lower slot to overs. As soon as the water level got right, Mark and Krista began hookin up on just about every other cast. They did an excellent job fighting fish around a lot of structure we were fishing. It was a pleasure fishing with y'all.
We had a sight seeing tour planned as well, so we left them biting and took a tour of the area to check out many of the fish holding areas around Sea Island and St Simons. We even got to see a few sandbars up close and personal in the sound around Pelican Spit.
We actually got to see quite a few fish, distinctly and clearly, as the water quality was excellent. Often, fishing in these clear low water conditions can be tough--the fish are very wary and spooky. It was great to see the fish eat so readily. Water temps ranged from 60 degrees all the way up to nearly 67 in the back of some of the creeks. Kept a few for the grease. Again, thanks Mark & Krista, I think you guys put some good karma on the boat, and have ushered in what looks to be a great spring bite.
