Coastal GA Fishing - 18'

Are you looking for the perfect way to get your kids to fall in love with the outdoors? How about a thrilling chase for your next personal best? You can find the answer for both of these questions, and more, in the bountiful waters of Georgia. Let Coastal GA Fishing show you why this locale can cater to any angler!

Join Captain Jay Cranford for an angling adventure. You’ll fish from his 18’ Sea Hunt center console. She can comfortably hold 3 anglers plus the captain, all fishing at the same time. Her design allows you to chase the bite all around the deck, perfect for battling inshore beasts, while also capable of heading offshore.

You’ll have a wide range of species to choose from targeting with Capt. Jay. If you’re an inshore fanatic you can go after the A-list trio: Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Flounder, as well as Black Drum, Tarpon, and others. Nearshore waters hide Sheepshead, Cobia, Barracuda, Black Seabass, and more. You can even hit blue waters for various Snappers and Groupers, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Amberjack, and whatever else you run into.

The captain will supply you with all the required equipment, except fly rods – you’ll have to bring your own fly tackle. Remember to pack a cooler so you can take your hard-fought catch home – Capt. Jay offers complimentary fish cleaning and filleting.

If you’re looking for a larger party, the charter offers larger boats too – click on their profile and explore their entire offer. Captain departs from several marinas in the area. Contact him to see which one would work best for you.

Treat yourself and your fishing team to an exciting fishing trip off the coast of Georgia. Book a trip with Coastal GA Fishing today and make the first towards your next favorite fishing destination!
