Goin' Coastal Charters

Join Goin’ Coastal Charters for year round consistent fishing opportunities! Explore the waters around St Simons Island, Brunswick, the Golden Isles, and Jekyll Island. Captain Scott and his crew spend over 250 days on the water and always provide unforgettable action to their guests.

Let the crew know where you’re based and they’ll arrange a pickup. You’ll be fishing on a 26’ Sailfish boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. This great boat is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine and reaches a speed of 50 knots. She’s equipped with Garmin navigational electronics, a misting system to keep you cool, a private toilet, and trolling gear.

If you’re interested in inshore fishing, you’ll have a chance to target Redfish, Flounder, and Sea Trout, while deeper waters bring more variety into the game, such as Snapper, Grouper, Tripletail, Sharks, Cobia, Black Seabass, and trophy Tarpon. Most great fishing spots are within easy reach, so it won’t take long till you feel the first bite and pulling.

The crew takes care of all your bait, tackle, and licenses. They’ll also clean your catch and bag it. You only need to pack your snacks, drinks, and some sun protection.

Whether you’re a beginner, a recreational fisherman, or a fishing veteran, these waters hold something for everyone. To maximize your chance for a great day on the water, take a trip with Goin’ Coastal Charters!
