A Three-Way Plan To Catch Georgia’s Coastal Reds
October is one of the best periods of the year for redfish along the Georgia coast. According to Spud Woodward, the director of the Coastal Resources Division of the Georgia DNR, the life cycle of the red drum provides three varied angling opportunities during the fall.

Spring Family Fun Catching Whiting On The Georgia Coast
The barrier islands on the southeast Georgia coast are paradise for an outdoors enthusiast. They vary from the private and pristine to federally and state-protected reserves, but all share a degree of raw beauty that is tough to beat. In addition, they offer great recreational options for the locals as well as the hordes of tourists that frequent the area.

I had the pleasure of experiencing some great early season angling action with a local family who spends a lot of time in these waters. The Rykard family, of Colonels Island, spends much of their free time on the water, and once the early spring temperatures start to rise, they are likely to be headed out most weekends.

I met Mitch and his daughters Caroline, 13, and Caitlyn, 11, on a cool morning in mid-March at the Half Moon Marina not far from their Colonels Island home. Also aboard was Paul Raudenbush, of Jacksonville, Fla., a friend of Mitch’s and one of my frequent fishing companions.

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...
