  • Savannah Fishing Report - GA

    While inshore fishing with Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charters Joanna and Casey Poole Jasper, Georgia had a wonderful catching time. While using mud minnows under popping corks and assorted secret Captain Kevin customized red fish baits they scored big time! They kept, they released, and they lost some really nice fish! All in all it was a grand inshore fishing day. Casey’s father Ralph joined them for this fish catching adventure. Of course, who caught the biggest? Ralph!



    Inshore
    I call this the teeter toddle ring time of the year! Why? Water temps are not exactly what I would say completely predicable. And you know the fish that swim in it are definitely after the winter that we have had are looking for some temperature stability. Here’s where we are: We have seen some 60 degree water this past week, which has prompted more of a solid fish bite. Heck, after all when a fish moves it does have to eat. So therefore the warmer the water the more the fish moves the more the fish will eat and the more the fishermen will catch!


    Cold Water Red Fish



    Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charters used a mud minnow under Harper Super Striker Cork to get this catching job done! Cold water reds are in the thawing process, water temps are on the rise, and the inshore bite is just about to get right!




    Captain Kevin Rose of Miss Judy Charters reached into his tackle box and pulled out his bag of tricks. This red fish found a Captain Kevin worked Sloan Brothers 3.5 inch swim bait something that it could not pass up! How did he work this lure? He just casted into the strike zone did a little twitching! And the purple panic bait took it from there!

    Offshore Fishing Report

    Please meet the Hare Fishing Party!
    I took this fun family on a short fishing trip this past weekend to the artificial reefs. They met here from all over the country! I was so glad that they were able to catch a few fish and have a nice fried fish dinner.

    Please meet Ryan Shepherd Columbus, Georgia! He was part of the Hare Family Fishing Party!


    The offshore artificial sheepshead bite was very light this past weekend with fishermen such as me getting badly taken advantage of. I can’t tell you how many times I reeled up a completely sucked dried fiddler shell. I knew exactly when the sheepshead hit my bait, but couldn’t get in step with the bite. So we came up with the sheepshead wave and wiggle. Now, the sheepshead wave is not new, but adding the wiggle did the trick. Ryan Shepherd was taught to bass fish by his father, who is a serious tournament bass fisherman. Ryan kept saying, “It’s hard not trying to set the hook like I do on a bass!” After a few minutes of hits and misses Ryan dialed this fish bite in by adding his signature wiggle. He had some fish catching moves for sure! He caught the most and the biggest! I was so happy that he took the stress off me!


    Savannah Snapper Banks
    This area is holding lots of black sea bass, vermilion snapper, white grunt, trigger fish, red snapper, grouper, and I could go on, but... The bottom line is we got lots of fish! Please always check with http://safmc.net/ before heading out! Remember we got rules and lots of them!


    Gulf Stream
    I haven’t gotten any recent reports from the Gulf Stream. However, I can almost guarantee that if you make a run that you are going to get an opportunity to catch a whole lot of different kinds of fish. And I am not just talking about bottom fish either! You can add the top water bite, because it is there! You just got to find it! Let me know if you go!
    Freshies Report and it’s a Salty Report Too!
    Just do it!

    Bill Vanderford
    My long time friend Bill Vanderford invented these lures many years ago. The best news is not only do the freshwater fish love them so do the saltwater ones too! A lure for all seasons with good reasons!
    Bill Vanderford says, “The fishing season is on the horizon, so if you want an easy way to catch more fish than ever....the Swirleybird is the answer!” Captain Judy says, “Order some today!”
