The flounder bite is phenomenal during this season of the year.
Fall carries heavier winds into the rivers out of the northeast. Fish deep docks with oyster clusters and small feeder creeks near them. I use bottom rigs with mud minnows at the end of the line. Inshore the gator trout bite really turns on where they are chasing finger mullet up onto the flats. Using a top bait or a suspended bait works really well. Redfish cruise along the oysters’ beds chasing shrimp and small crabs. Jig fishing with light tackle works great. Bull reds and black drum are running through the jetties this time of year. Working cut bait on the bottom and along the rock edges, you are sure to catch one of these beasts.
Springtime starts the flood tide.
Getting up on the grass flats during a good flood tide is an awesome time to chase a good number of redfish. Where they feed on crustaceans and juvenile shrimp. Trout begin to move from their deep water holes and hang out along the oyster beds and the flats along creek channels. The sheepshead is likely to continue hanging around down trees and dock pylons. Flounder will move to the oyster beds as well as deeper edges of the clusters. They will also sit along the creek mouths. These are just some of the targeted fish for spring.
There is a Big trout bite during the summertime, here in GA.
The redfish are spotted along the creek mouths where there are a lot of oysters and sporadically along the grass flats. Flounder can be found in deeper creek mouths during low tide and along the muddy banks near oyster beds during high tide. The large black drum will start moving into deep holes along the river. Fishing with cut bait or crab is a sure catch. Whiting can also be found fishing shrimp off the bottom. Out at the jetties, you will find black sea bass and a large number of sharks. Tarpon start rolling out in the sound and the main rivers. Fish floats with live pogies or finger mullet will attack the tarpon.
This is one of the most overlooked time of year for fishing.
Playing the tides just right and once it warms up during the day, the trout bite really turns on. Redfish wait in the deeper waters just along the flats during lower tide. As the water warms up, throughout the day, on these flats, you’ll run across numerous schools of reds. As the water cools, sheepshead are the fish on fish. Fishing docks and old trees are the prime way to target these bait bandits.

My journey on the water started at a very young age.
I fished in Wisconsin and Michigan with my father, throughout all its inland lakes and the Great Lakes. He taught me the value and technique of using artificial baits, which is something I stand by to this day.
