We've been coming to St George for years and always make at least one trip to the Cut. My husband enjoys fishing there and I like to do some shelling (I find it's the best place... read more

We've been coming to St George for years and always make at least one trip to the Cut. My husband enjoys fishing there and I like to do some shelling (I find it's the best place on the island next to the far East End to find whole, intact shells). Lovely sunsets on St George and a great place to... More

Wonderful place to fish and relax. When we stay here, we stay in a home that's close enough to walk to the cut. My husband goes there everyday of our vacation to fish and relax on the rocks. A little piece of Heaven on Earth.

You really need to stay on the plantation to enjoy this from the St. George island side! There is parking so don't walk, or you'll regret it! Because after you park you have to walk down a wooden walkway and across about a 1/4 mile of beach. SO be mindful of what you're carrying! My fiancé caught all sorts of... More

Tide has to be coming into the bay. Been going down there for years. We have caught many 30lb. Red fish. The trick is you have to catch your own bait. The Pen fish or Pilchers work great. You need about a 3 or 4" bait and get ready to hold on..

My family took our 28ft catamaran out past bob sikes cut at sunset and it was georgeous at sunset. That evening the water was calm and crystal clear blue. The sun was breathtaking as it disappeared into the gulf. I just hope others can experience this fabulous scene.

The water is beautiful at Bob Sikes Cut. It is nice for families that have some people in the family that like to fish and some that like to swim and sunbathe. The best of both worlds!

What a beautiful area to watch nature! There are always dolphins, fish, crabs, and birds. It's simply an excellent area to go and observe wildlife. It's an easy walk up the beach to the cut. Though you should carry shoes with you because there are some areas with lots of seashells that will hurt you feet if you walk on... More

My reviews are usually very positive, but I have to get off my nice box for this post. In the past we had stayed in Plantation so I thought access to the cut was available to everyone not just those who could afford to rent/live in the gated community. This time, since we were only on the island for a... More

What a neat area to see! We visited while we were staying at a rental home in the Plantation. Hunting seashells on the beach was awesome - the kids loved it!

I have been coming to St. George Island for a couple of winters, stay on the Plantation so I can get to the cut. First year casted frozen shrimp out into the cut. Lost a few rigs on the rocks but ended up catching a couple of nice Reds, big fish, lots of fight and tasty. Past couple of years... More
