This is a great place to fish but very dangerous. Heavy caution should be used by everyone because of the heavy, Swift current. Also, we'll traveled by sharks so stay out of this water. Sikes Cut connects Apalachicola Bay to the Gulf.

We stay on the plantation specifically so we can go to the cut. My husband loves to fish there and we set up our beach gear there. We've caught blue crab and found lots of shells. It's also a great place for pictures.

We've been here a few times. This time, we circled Little St. George Is. by boat and entered into the bay through Bob Sikes Cut. It's just pretty with the pristine Little St. George on one side and some pricey SGI houses on the other....More

A cut is a cut! The water roars through here from the gulf to the bay and it is interesting to view, but that is the beginning and the end of the story.

Bob Sikes Cut divides St. George Island. Its easy to get to by boat or if you live on the Plantation (a private gated community). Otherwise its a long hike. The cut is a perfect place to fish for redfish, sheephead, and other surf fish....More

You can't get to the Cut from St. George Island. We tried, and got stopped at the entrance to a gated community (the only way to get to the Cut on St. George Island) and told that only residents or people accompanied by a real...More

Man made channel through the island accessible only by boat or through the Plantation (have to have house there to get in answering way to far to walk down beach). Great fishing hole for reds and trout! Don't know why this falls into a category...More

We fished both sides of Sikes Cut on the Island Charters finishing trip and caught several types of fish. Would recommend going to this place if you are fishing

Walked down the beach to the cut and jetty. Ripping current. Tried tossing DOA jerk bait to no avail. Saw some boats drifting through, probably with live bait.
