Signs of spring are popping up all over the Bluff - ospreys are repairing their nests after the cold winter months, barn swallows are swarming the dock, and fiddler crabs are running the beach. The beginning of another fishing season is upon us, this year with many changes on the horizon.
The water temperature is beginning to creep up and along with that we can expect some of the pelagic species of fish to become available. The black drum and sheepshead are already putting on a good show at the jetties area, along with the occasional red fish. Triple tail and Spanish mackerel will be next to show on our near coastal waters and then the powerhouse of fish, the cobia, will be travelling the area and will provide some opportunities for sight fishing via fly or conventional. In the backwater areas the red fish will be on the move to summertime haunts and the largest trout of the year will be available as they transition out of wintertime mode. Both inshore and deep sea charter fishing will continue to improve as we enter into the summertime fishing season, with several options available to get your fishing fix.
There will be many new offerings this year at the Cabin Bluff docks as we expand our fleet with two additional bay boats, a flats boat for shallow water adventures, and a new offshore boat for those deep water trips. All are loaded with state of the art equipment in order to ensure our guest the best fishing experience possible. The addition of the new boats and staff will allow us the opportunity to support larger groups in their fishing experiences, provide a larger option for different types of fishing, and target specific species.
Several special fishing events are planned for the summer and early fall period to coincide with the great fishing on the Georgia coast. Come share the Cabin Bluff experience and the great fishing opportunities available!
