Default Good spots around St. George?

Hey y'all. I'm going down to St. George for a couple of days next week. I asked around on my home forum (Georgia Outdoor News), and was directed here for location recommendations. Me and my buddies are hoping to hook into some reds and trout, but don't really care too much as long as we catch something.

We'll be using our kayaks, none of them are motorized.

There are tons of flats on the bay side. You can spend all day running them and catch so many different types of fish. Get a chart. There's rattlesnake cove, there's an old sunken shrimp boat out near the intracoastal. You can get into spanish, white trout, flounder, etc. fishing the bridge. There are a ton of bonnetheads on the flats also. I like chartreuse cocahoes, but you'll have to play with different combinations to find what's hot. Good Luck!

If you can get out to the eastern end, there's a little island called Marsh Island on the bay side. Nice flats all around, and a deeper area (10') just east of Marsh Island that is a holding spot for all the inshore types.

Thanks for all ya'll's help! We caught some decent trout, cats, ladyfish and mackerel. We barely saw a Red the entire trip, until my buddy hooked one that was 34 pounds! Great trip, and we'll definitely be coming back.
