Summer Sharks In The Marsh
Brooks Good has two passions, one is fishing and the other is teaching kids about the outdoors.

St. Simons Island, near Brunswick, is no exception. While St. Simons is probably best known for its resort and golf courses, there are excellent angling opportunities in the rivers and creeks that wind through the local marshes.

Target Bowfin, The Bait-Crashing Bullies
Whether you call them bowfin (the American Fisheries Society accepted common name), mudfish, grinnel, cypress bass or the whole host of other monikers, this feisty predator is highly underrated. They have a nasty disposition, a face full of teeth and a penchant for ruining fishing lures. What more could you want? OK, so their flesh has a cottony...
