St. George Island

I'll be in St. George the week of June 23 with the family and am looking to hire a guide for a day.  I'm clueless to the area and was hoping to get a few recommendations for guides. Really considering anything; trout and reds to anything nearshore/inshore that's reasonable for a 4-8 hr trip.  Also, is surf fishing or wade fishing worth my time that time of year. Haven't fished salt water in several years. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and I'd love to return the favor for anyone that had questions about fishing East Texas (Lake Fork, etc).

    J N,  trout and reds should still be on fire when you’re  on St George. I live in Carrabelle which is just east of St George and fish mostly Dog Island and Lanark area. Jeremy Davidson is a local inshore guide and photographer. Give him a call to set a date
    850-323-0687. I would call sooner than later cause your dates  are slap in middle of red snapper season.
    yes, surf and wade fish’n are very good

    Surf and wade fishing should still be good but will be best early and late a couple hours right after first light and before sunset til dusk.  

    June 23 is my bday and last year I went out with Capt. Coble of SGI Charters for a 6 hour state water red snapper/grouper charter.  We caught some good fish and Captain Coble worked really hard for us.  I would look them up if you are interested in that sort of thing.

    Thanks for the advice so far.  I'll look into the suggestions y'all have given me for sure.

    You'll be there during Red Snapper season.  Coble Griffith will put you on inshore fish like Reds and Trout, or get out there for snapper and grouper.  Check him out at :  www.griffithguidesgi.com
