Georgia Fishing Report: Jan Operation (ROE)


On Friday, an angler fishing the Brunswick area from the bank caught and released 35 trout up to 21 inches. He was bouncing plastics on the bottom. He caught his first 6 trout on a Keitech 2.8” swimbait on a Flashy Jighead before losing his only one. He then switched to a plain 1/8-oz. jighead and Assassin Sea Shads to do most of his damage. The best colors of Sea Shads for him were mama’s 14K and bone diamond. He caught a couple fish on minnow plugs. In the Brunswick area, some trout and redfish were caught in deep holes in the creeks by anglers fishing live bait and grubs. Fiddler crabs fooled sheepshead along bridge pilings and other hard structures at the St Simons Causeway accesses…St. Simons Bait & Tackle…said that anglers fishing the pier caught whiting, croakers, and yellow tails on dead shrimp. A few blue crabs are still being caught. You can monitor the marine forecast HERE.
