My son and I made a fishing trip to the Satilla River in the Atkinson area today! The river was as pretty as I've ever saw it, deep black water, no trash floating, clear with no signs of mudding at all. It was a little fuller than I like to fish, but it was just over the 6 ft. mark at Atkinson. We saw and talked to three other boats and their catch was 2 to 3 Redbreast. I guess we were lucky, as we had 6 Redbreast and 4 stumpknockers. Not a very good day as fish numbers go. It was nice to get out on the river again. Dang it was HOT until the wind started blowing! Good to be fishing again!!

It's good you got out. That's better than we did the week before. The river was pretty though. I would like to get back out there, but may not before the wife and I head to Lake Juliette. Catch'um up.

Man, I know nothing about mullet fishing. Sounds like you did good though.

Just got through cooking mullet for our employees. Ueah its lots of fun. Unreal pull in running water. The fresh water mullet are far better than the salt version. the further north you go , the better. You really need to try it.

My Uncle used to catch the mullet by the cooler fulls, they used chicken feed and waded out on the sand bars and fished about waist deep. They stayed cool and loaded the boat too. He fished the Paridise Park area. They are dang good when fresh!

Big rains here yesterday/last nite... the Satilla at Waycross is expected to jump 2 to 3 ft. in the next day or 2, this will cause the river to be muddy and rise at Atkinson next week.
