The triple tail are getting thick in front of Jekyll. Key is to go when the wind is down. I went out day before yesterday, caught a few and saw more than I can remember. Winds were fairly calm. Yesterday, the winds were from the SW, but 15-20. The water was fairly smooth in front of Jekyll, but the TT were scarce.

There are still nice schools of reds to be found on the flats. I went scouting for some upcoming trips and landed a nice 27" red and my personal best ever red on a fly rod, 36" and 14 lbs. Sorry no pics, but I measure, weigh and don't exaggerate the size of these fish.

The 14 lb red is just before leaving the inshore area and heading offshore to become a spawner. Let's hope he grows up to be a bull.

I have had good reports of bull reds in the breakers on bait, but I have been fly fishing. I just love the long rod so much, I can't put it down.

I still have a few dates open for the tailing tides the end of this month. Come on down to the Golden Isles and enjoy this terrific fishery we have here.
