Warm weather likely means more fish

Hello, everyone. Tight line Jr. here and I’m sorry I have not reported in the last two weeks. There have been a lot of changes around the home front, but now things are settling down so let’s talk fishing.

I have a few reports from Colonel’s Island and our coastal area.

Rodney Hall, Ol’ Tight Line’s grandson, was out fishing with his friend Shawn Branson and landed 30 whiting, deck side.

Some of my buddies on St. Simons, Capt. Jim Sheridan and party, landed 17 trout, nine spottail bass and three black drum while fishing around Cumberland Island.

Rayburn Goodman, from Yellow Bluff Marina, said he caught some nice spottail bass and sheepshead.

Well, with the temperature warming up, the inshore fishing should start heating up as well. I’m looking forward to hitting the docks and getting the tours started.

Goodman says he has live shrimp, minnows and fiddlers. Sunbury Crab Company and Marina has live shrimp and minnows and, for those of you who are hungry, a great fish sandwich.

Halfmoon Marina hopes to have live shrimp this weekend. Big Rudy at the Sunbury Country Store says they have frozen shrimp and squid.

Trust me when I tell you I will always remember what Ol’ Tight Line said — get out there and get fishing. And if you do, always remember to keep a tight line.

I say hit the docks, keep a sharp eye and watch that cork go down. Now do me a favor and wet a hook.


Your buddy,

Tight Line Jr.
