Savannah Sound is beautiful and has a fair number of fish and a few big ones as well but these fish see quite a few flies and are well educated. All the easy access areas have fish but again they're not easy. I usually stay around Gov. Harbour and fish south. For me the easiest fish to catch have always been on the ocean side if you get some calm conditions. I have seen one permit and zero tarpon in all the years I've been going there but I go in Feb., later in the year when the water warms they may show. You'll need a car.
Good to know. There are also miles upon miles of flats on the far northeast corner. There is a quiet little town up there, and we just stopped by to check it out one day when we were exploring. Saw a massive school of bones just cruising around.

But, if I were going for a fishing trip, Governors Harbor definitely has the easiest access to necessities and fish. If you do stay, be sure to check close in during the highest point in the tide... Me and another fisherman saw several very large bones cruising right up near the sea wall, likely mudding for some crabs on what is usually dry sand. They were substantially larger than most of the fish I saw cruising the flats on the incoming tide.
