A chilly predawn ride

Recommended Posts

Was worth it. Fished solo this morning and kept 15 trout and 1 red.  I’m still trying to thaw my fingers out!

I ran south from Savannah and fished around St. Catherines Island, what I consider my home waters, that day.

I am probably the wrong person to be talking about March fishing! I am a CPA and from now till April 15, the only fishing I will be doing is in my dreams! LOL I have never fished for specs, or anything else for that matter in February, March, or April, so regrettably, I am no help. May is known as roe trout month around the Georgia coast, so that is usually when we start testing the waters.

If I was traveling from out of state to fish in Georgia in March, I would go as far south as possible, like the St. Simons area and around Cumberland Island. I have always heard good things about Christmas Creek down at Cumberland Island. Maybe someone else can chime in with some sage advice. Good luck!

I got in one quick little early morning trip with a friend yesterday before the rain started.  We found them biting pretty good, all on plastic.

Fish McQueen's Inlet on the front side of St.Catherine's Island, if you can. You will probably have to follow another boat into the inlet, since it is very shallow unless you know where the ever-shifting channel is. The trout will be moving to the mouths of the larger rivers and the inside of the sound (Sapelo or St. Cat's). Find clear water (that's a relative term around here) and nice oysters and you should be good. Don't fish the middle of each tide, as the water will be moving too fast.
