Georgia Saltwater Fishing Report – March 2007
Inshore: The trout fishing has slowed down with all the cold weather we have been having, according to Capt. Greg Hildreth. “The trout that are being caught have moved into the deeper holes in 12 to 20 feet and are being taken with boot-tail minnows and lead heads. The most productive colors have been the electric chicken and the opening night. The baits need to be retrieved very slow so the lure stays close to the bottom. The inshore redfishing on the mud flats, however, has been very good. The fish are finally in the winter pattern, and when you can find a day with little wind and bright sun, you can have an awesome day. We have been getting the reds on Bite-A-Bait floaters in the parrot color as well as plastic jerkbaits in the opal color. The fly rodders have be doing very good with the chartreuse Clouser fly and the bunny hair fly in chartreuse, hot pink, and black colors,” Capt. Hildreth said.
Offshore: Capt. David Newlin said it’s been very good for number of sea bass and vermillion snapper. “We’ve been doing well around Gray’s Reef, and also on the Snapper Banks in 80 to 90 feet of water. The bigger fish should start biting even better,” he said.
