Take a Look at What We've Been Catching
Posted by: Jeanne Christie
For anglers (avid and first-timers), there’s always something biting in the surf, creeks or off the dock; and our tackle shack is ready with all the necessary poles, tackle and bait you’ll need. Our naturalists will take you out to their favorite fishing holes where they'll help you land the big one. Or if you'd rather go out on your own they will tell you about the best spots to fish and set you up with all the right tackle. Our chefs will even cook-up your catch!
Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, pristine estuaries, marshes and rivers, Little St. Simons Island offers guests rare access to one of the most productive fisheries on the East Coast and presents a unique saltwater fishing opportunity. The estuary of the Altamaha River provides habitat and nutrients to support large numbers of resident inshore game fish and a spawning ground for larger offshore fish.
The most commonly caught fish are red drum, black drum, spotted sea trout, flounder, Southern kingfish (whiting), tarpon, and sheepshead.
