Post St. George Island 9-18 / 9-20-14
Made one of my annual pilgrimages down to the coast for a few days. St. George is an awesome place and I have been going there every year since I was a kid. The beaches are amazing, not crowded and the place is a fishing dream. At times the beach is a great place to fish but come late summer and early fall the bayside really turns on. There is a little spot in the State park where a channel (5-6 ft deep) swings right next to the shore between two large oyster bars. It is nothing but a large highway/funnel for the fish to go through between 2 a joining flats. It is pretty much lazy fishing. Net finger mullet behind oyster bar, rig on a carolina rig, toss in channel and put in rod holder....sit back and wait a few minutes for a fish.

The outgoing tide in the afternoon was the ticket and produced best. The morning incoming was slow except Saturday morning when it was very windy and cloudy. It really turned the bite on. Caught plenty of red fish along with spanish macks, flounder, trout, lady fish, jacks and sharks. Was hoping to pick up the white/sand trout which have no limit and are the smaller cousin to the speckled trout but they hadn't made it in that area yet.

I honeymooned on ST George Island 26 years ago today. That is a great place to fish out of. Looks like a great mix of fish. Thanks for the report
