    I am taking a vacation in southern Georgia soon and will have the opportunity to fish behind the condo in the salt water marsh. I know nothing about this kind of fishing. It is Sea Island to be exact. Can anyone please offer advice as to what gear and setup I will need? Please be detailed and assume I know nothing, because I dont. :)

    Not familiar with that area but a quick google search...looks to be a good spot. If you have access to a boat/kayak that would be awesome, I kayak fish and it's a great silent way to find fish on the flats etc.

    I run Penn battles 2500/3000 and Shimano Stradics of similar size
    6 foot penn/custom rods
    Braided line...I think most are around 20lb strength or so for in the sound
    Fish grips

    For lures...
    spoons (I like silver)
    carolina rigs for finger mullet/zminnows
    canjun popper is a fool proof fishing method...just toss on live bait or a zminnow/shrimp lure
    Bottom fishing with shrimp/finger mullet

    I know where I fish in the outer banks and it's essentially shallow everwhere minus channels/holes/certain areas I know so fishing early is the best. You will want to fish outgoing/incoming tides...few hours on each end. Get a cheap cast net and practice throwing it...spend time catching finger mullet...I think live bait > lures personally
