Want Great Georgia Fishing? Enjoy Inshore Fishing in Jekyll Island's Rivers, Estuaries, and Surf

Great Georgia Fishing Opportunities Include Jekyll Island Inshore Fishing Adventures -

If fishing on your Jekyll Island family adventure appeals to you, but thoughts of heading offshore for a day to plumb the briny deep leaves your stomach queasy, then think again.

Think inshore fishing.

The fish are out there, in the rivers and estuaries of the island's bay side, or in the boiling Atlantic surf. You just have to find them. And catch them. And clean them (or leave that up to your spouse - or a good guide).

Georgia Fishing at its Best -

In the Jekyll River and the creeks running from the saltwater marsh fishermen can have a close encounter with redfish, bulls, trout, flounder, whiting, sheepshead, and even sharks. You can also hook into tarpon and triple tail.

Georgia fishing enthusiasts will find these fish feeding on oyster beds and at the mouths of creeks, especially during ebbing tides, when the waters are filled with fishy-type food flushing from the marshes.

It pays to know the legal lengths of the fish you'll be catching. Anglers can become familiar with minimum lengths and other regulations at Georgia Fishing Regulations.



Best Method for Inshore Georgia Fishing -

Depending on whether you want to fish the rivers, creeks or the surf, there are several methods to get the best from your fishing time.

Whether you choose to lay back in a comfy beach chair and fish from the bank, head out in a boat with or without a guide, or cast heavy tackle in the foamy surf, inshore fishing is oneof the best Georgia fishing adventures you can have, alone or with a kid. Give it a try on your next Jekyll Island Family Adventure.
