Watch the VideoFabulous Fishing

St. George Island has fabulous fishing.  This narrow barrier island sits four miles off the mainland with the Apalachicola Bay on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other.  The bay is home to more than 100 species of fish which reside among the grassy flats, channels, oyster bars, sand bars, and small islands, while the Gulf provides surf and offshore fishing along 25 miles of beautiful uncongested white sand beach.

Bay fishing offers speckled trout, redfish, flounder, sheephead and black drum year-round, with Spanish mackerel, pompano, tripletail, bluefish, ladyfish and sharks abundant between March and November.  Surf fishing provides whiting, flounder and redfish year-round; speckled trout, pompano, bluefish, Spanish mackerel and sharks when the water is 70 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer.  Red snapper, grouper, amberjack, cobia, jack crevalle, kingfish, mahi-mahi and more can be caught offshore.  June, July and August are tarpon times.   

tackle shopIsland bait and tackle shops have whatever you need to start fishing, including licenses, nautical charts and rental boats.  A new island boat ramp should be available by July.  Expert local guides are available for hire by the half day or full day for all types of fishing.  Charters include the required licenses, rods, reels, bait and tackle.  Many welcome children and some are for children only!

On the north side of the island, a fishing pier juts out 600 feet into the water, affording easy access (with no fee) to all Bay species.  And kayak fishing on the Bay is a special treat.  Bring your own kayak or rent one on the island, then shove off and cast a lure.  A big redfish may take you for a memorable SGI sleigh ride.

If you catch enough for dinner and want to cook it yourself, a bait and tackle shop may agree to clean your haul. If you prefer to have it prepared for you, some local restaurants will cook your catch.

This is the Florida fishing you’ve heard and read about.  It doesn’t get any better than this.
