Default St. Simons Red Fish, late December-early January

December/early January fishing:
The red fish have been on fire when we find them. Some days we only find one or two schools, and other days the reds are on every flat. The water temperature has been in the low 50's, the water is normally clear, and the sight fishing is awesome. Most days, anglers have many, many shots at BIG reds. I have had several fish fall victim to Purple and Black Puglissi Peanut Bunker patterns.

With light winds and fishing small flies, I have been fishing a six weight. A nine pound red is a hoot on a six weight. With lower water temperatures and plenty of Oxygen in the water, the fight does not over stress them, and they are released no worse for the wear.

The weather this year has been unusually mild. It looks like we will have a run of 50 degree weather, which will keep the gnats down, rather than 70 degree weather for the next week; and the tides will be looking good starting on the 17th and running until the end of January. If you have a chance, you should come get your string stretched and come "Hunt fish in the Golden Isles of Georgia."
