Beautiful weather returned to St. Simons yesterday. Temp was almost 70 and very light winds. The water temperatures have warmed up to 54 degrees, from 40 degrees right after the cold snap.

Went scouting today, and found the reds schooled up and hungry. It is so cool to see the fish tailing and finning in shallow water. The water was a little cloudy, but I could see wakes and flashes from fish beneath the surface from time to time.

Here is a tip. When the wind is light and the water is flat, look closely and look for little swirls and tiny disturbances on the surface of the water. This is true for high tide fishing in the grass and low tide fishing on the mud flats. These disturbances are different from the wakes and splashes that bait make. It is hard to describe, but it is just a little disturbance made by a red as he is swimming by. The wakes are easy to see, these are much more subtle. You can only see these when the water is flat. Once you see it a few times, you can easily recognize it. Cast in front of it, and it is usually fish on!

This is a great time of year to take a break. They fishing is good, there isn't much competition and the fish are biting.
