Inshore Sea Island Fishing
You don’t necessarily have to take to the vast open ocean in order to have an exciting Sea Island Fishing Trip. Leisurely sailing through the shallow waters, you’ll get the opportunity to catch speckled trout, red drum, flounder, whiting, and sheepshead. Inshore fishing can be done using flies or live bait.
With the region enjoying a mostly mild climate, those who decide to fish out at sea will have the chance to try trolling and bottom fishing. This opens up the possibilities for what can be caught, depending on the season, to include snapper, grouper, sheepshead, cobia, barracuda, king mackerel, and black sea bass.
Regardless if you’re new to fishing or an experienced angler, near-shore fishing is a rewarding and challenging adventure. From the beaches of Sea Island to those of Sapelo and Cumberland Islands, the odds are good of snaring a bull redfish, tripletail, jack crevalle, Spanish mackerel, tarpon, and even shark.
There also alternatives to these kinds of fishing excursions that allow for a more kid-friendly, family-fun type of atmosphere. Children will become familiar with the sport of fishing and learn how to bait their hooks and cast their lines. In addition, dock fishing and crabbing is available with the possibility of catching trout, flounder, tarpon, tripletail, redfish, and jack crevalle.
Hours of fun await you on a coastal Georgia and Sea Island fishing trip. Peaceful ocean sounds and stunning island views are an added bonus. Fish are in ample supply year-round in the waters that encompass Sea Island, making this an excellent activity to participate in no matter what season you plan your vacation to the Golden Isles in.
