Fishing with Bob Redfern – St. Simons Island, Georgia

This week Bob is joined by Captain Richard Latham, a longtime guide in the St. Simons Island area. Bob and Richard will be fishing for reds and sea trout. If you’ve ever wondered about the fishing off the Georgia coast, you won’t want to miss this! St. Simons Island is one of Georgia‘s renowned Golden Isles (along with Sea IslandJekyll Island, and privately owned Little St. Simons Island). It is also the largest of the Golden Isles. After being developed by colonists as rice and cotton plantations worked by large populations of African slaves, who developed the unique Gullah culture, the island since the early twentieth century has become a resort community. It has many seasonal residents, as well as a steady base of year-round residents. Source
