Satilla’s redbreast back in a big way after flathead eradication

Special to SEGAZINE

“Rooster” redbreast are back in the Satilla River in number and size.

Locals describe them as being “as big as a dinner plate” and they’ve been in short supply for a few years as an invasive and voracious catfish took a literal bite out of the population of the sunfish.

But a state Department of Natural Resources effort to wipe out the catfish, known as flatheads, apparently has taken hold and redbreast fishing is good again along the winding, 235-mile course of the blackwater stream.
