If you can't catch fish here, you can't catch fish. It wasn't that crowded this time of year, plenty of fish, although jellyfish and sharks were occasionally a problem.

The Cut was paid for with tax dollars, yet is not accessible by land or beach because of the private compound at the end of the main island section. We tried to fish on the cut but the surge and rip tide were too strong the days we were out.

Beautiful views of nature at it's best. Only draw back is sunset when the mosquitos can be particularly bad...take your bug spray and something to take pictures!

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!
