Georgia Saltwater Fishing Report September 2008

GON Staff | August 26, 2008

Saltwater: Inshore: Improving. Capt. Bob Barnette, fishing out of Richmond Hill, said, “We are catching a lot of small trout and a lot of what we call rat-reds — short redfish.” He said to use an adjustable float rig with a live shrimp. “Fish the mouths of the creeks and inlets around oyster beds and other natural areas. You can also do well around older docks,” Capt. Barnette said. “This time of the year the larger fish are feeding on bigger baits. Don’t be afraid to try a topwater Top Dog bait early in the morning and late in the afternoon. The fishing will only get better the next couple of months. Live bait is plentiful, and Fort McAllister Marina has plenty. The tripletail are still here, and so are the tarpon. On the beach front, the stag bass (bull redfish) should start showing up shortly. There are lots of small to large sharks for those who want to target them.”
