Tightlines Saltwater Fishing Charters

Tightlines Saltwater Fishing Charters specializes in guiding groups towards various inshore gamefish in the saltmarsh wetlands around Savannah, GA. Capt. Sean has been fishing around Savannah all his life, and is the man to go to for that genuine Low Country fishing experience.

You will be fishing aboard a 21’ Hewes Redfisher flats boat. This agile vessel is perfect for picking a path through Savannah’s winding backcountry. She can get deep into the skinny waters to chase tailing Red Drum, but will still stay stable when battling Tarpon or big Stripers.

You have a choice of four, six, and eight-hour trips, targeting a wide variety of species. You will be given quality tackle from names like Penn, Shimano, and Abu Garcia, and plenty of live bait fresh from the livewell onboard.

So whether you’re after hard-fought battles against monster Black Drum and Tarpon, or productive food fishing for Red Drum, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and more, Capt. Sean will make it happen. He can also tell you all about this beautiful corner of America, and show you the rare birds and unique nature it is blessed with.

Snacks and drinks are included on all Tightlines Saltwater Fishing Charters trips, to keep you going through all the action. At the end of the day, all you catch will be cleaned and filleted, ready to cook up when you get home. You just need to bring your fishing license, your cooler, and plenty of energy for the day ahead!

I grew up fishing in the Savannah area and have always been passionate about the ocean, outdoors adventures, and wildlife. I love fishing because you get to enjoy the peace and serenity of nature while waiting for a fish to hit which is a total adrenaline rush. With saltwater fishing, you never know what you could end up catching. This is part of the allure. I have fished my entire life, mostly inshore saltwater but also offshore, freshwater, and fly-fishing. I love to travel and fish new exotic places but the fishing here in Savannah never disappoints.
