Fishing in the Golden Isles
By Sarah Horton


Fishing In The Golden Isles

While some of us associate fishing with a lazy summer day, true lovers of the sport know that the unique network of ocean reefs and coastal estuary waters around the Golden Isles makes the area a fishing paradise year round, whether your idea of paradise is a quiet float on an inland creek or a brisk bout with a feisty fish in 20-knot winds in open water.

Mitzi of St. Simons' Golden Isles Marina, home of the Golden Isles fishing guru Captain Mark Noble, notes that fishermen of all skill levels can enjoy a satisfying day of fishing in November (See "Know Your Opponent" below for details). For beginners, or those who are looking for a more relaxing day, the estuaries and creeks around St. Simons offers excellent trout and red drum fishing this time of year. "These are also nice opportunities to observe some of our local wildlife," she reports. Bird enthusiasts can look forward to a wide variety of local coastal species, including osprey, loons and bald eagles. In fact, Noble's and a few other outfitters offer wildlife tours for those who'd rather just look at the local fauna.

More seasoned fishermen with a taste for a challenge prefer the trips to the coastal reefs in search of king mackerel or black sea bass. Outfitters like Golden Isles Marina generally provide everything you need for all their inland and costal adventures, including all your gear and necessary licenses. What's more, they provide decades' worth of fishing expertise. "One of the things people enjoy most, particularly experienced fishermen, is that they often learn new fishing techniques," says Mitzi.

King Mackerel, Red Drum, Black Sea Bass—who are these creatures that lure folks out into misty mornings and 20 knot winds to pursue them for hour upon obsessive hour?
