Any of you southern folks fish coastal Georgia and northern Florida? I go down to my sisters farm in Georgia a few times a year but usually just fish freshwater. I'm heading down there for 3 weeks and gonna bring my saltwater gear this time. I fish saltwater up here in the northeast regularly. Mainly for stripers, blues, sandtiger and brown sharks. Not sure what to expect down south this time of year besides redfish. Im going to bring my kayak, one of the places I already planned to visit is tybee island. Anyone know any other good areas to go either with the kayak or on shore? What species are common in mid November? I've got gear for basically anything from 4-5 wt fly fishing up to heavy shark rods just not sure what to bring and where to go. Any basic info would help me plan my trip better.

Live fish are usually found in water.

I work in fuel tanks for a living. Don't judge me!
That’s right on the Florida/Georgia line.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Tybee Island is beautiful.

What's fishing there like? Does the water drop off deep or is it more shallow flats type fishing? From what I understand there's also several islands you can kayak out to in the area?

I haven't fished there. Just driving around, looking at the coastline, it looked like a lot of places to fish the surf. It looked like a lot of shallow areas with just narrow channels for boats to get around. I had a friend, years ago that used to do a lot of fishing and shrimp in. I seem to recall him saying there was a lot of shallow water.
