Winter Fishing on the Georgia Coast
Here on the Georgia coast, the bite for sheepshead is definitely on inshore and offshore. Black Sea Bass are closed and do pose a problem getting to the sheepies on nearshore reefs. Fiddlers (Crabs) are the bait for the convict fish. Water temp is from 52 to 58 degrees depending on where you are fishing. Those fiddler crabs are deep in the mud marsh and are available at bait shops, and marinas in the area but are imported from Florida. Inshore the size is from small to large in the ten pound range,
Spotted seatrout are still here but are holding in holes and are scattered. Live shrimp or artificials will do the trip but must be fished slowly on the bottom. We had a great fall run of the spotted seatrout with many catches in the area of the limit at 15 per angler in Georgia. It has been a mild winter so far and the fishing is good here on the coast. The hard core fishermen will do well.
