Heading down to St. Simons island next Thursday the 13th and I'm already losing sleep thinking about catching a flounder. They are by far my favorite fish to eat and I have never caught one
. I am bringing my kayak that is rigged for fishing. I have about a 7 foot pole rigged with 14 lb mono that should handle the brutes.
I am going with my wife and 9 month old daughter so needless to say I'll have very limitied fishing opportunities, so I want to make it count when I go. I'll probably leave early right when the sun is coming up and stay out a few hours (while the girls sleep), is this a good time? I have been reading a lot about waiting until the tide is coming in or out but sunrise is the only time I will have.
Any pointers would be awesome! I mainly want to know where I should put in the ole yak, and what areas I should be targeting. Creeks, docks, oyster beds, how far up a creek? Bait choices would be helpful too and hooks. Not looking for anyone to share any honey holes or anything I'm just not familiar with where I can go.
If anyone lives down there and wants to go or will be in the area I would love to go with someone. I'm an avid and experienced kayaker, just not so much inshore coastal experience.
