Mad Gillz Fishing

Mad Gillz Fishing invites you to join them for an authentic Georgian freshwater fishing experience. Their US coast guard licensed captains have decades of experience on lakes, rivers, and saltwater across the Southeastern part of the US and can accommodate anglers of all skill levels, from beginner to expert. Whatever your fishing profile, the trip will be customized to fit your particular needs.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 19’ Sea Chaser center console that’s powered by a single 115 HP Yamaha engine. This light and nimble vessel is exactly what you need for freshwater grounds like Lake Lanier. There’s enough room on the boat for 4 anglers, so feel free to bring your friends along for the ride.

Freshwater fishing in Georgia is top-notch, but Lake Lanier and similar places can be difficult to fish without proper knowledge or experience. This is why you’ll be accompanied by an expert guide who knows his stuff. The name of the game around here is Bass fishing, whether it’s Largemouth, Spotted, or Striped Bass. You’ll be provided with high-quality rods, reels, and terminal tackle, meaning the only thing you’ll need to bring is a freshwater fishing license.

For the best experience on the water, please give us 48 hours notice before the date of your choosing to best prepare for your adventure, you’ll want to bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, as well as some drinks and snacks if you’re so inclined. Get your game on and we’ll see you on the water. Book your adventure today!

As an Atlanta native I have been fishing Georgia waters for over 30 years. I have fished all up and down the East coast, throughout the Gulf of Mexico, the southeastern part of the U.S, and the Great Lakes. We have great resources for catching fish here in Georgia. It truly is a great destination. Book your adventure with Mad Gillz fishing. You will be glad you did. Let’s go fishing!
