Captain David Russell and Chatham Inshore Charters welcome you to Savannah, Georgia. He has been fishing the waters in and around Savannah for over 20 years. His charters depart from Bells Landing to Forest River and Houlihan Landing to the Savannah River. If you’d like a different departure area or have some other special request, the captain will be glad to discuss it when you book your charter. Keep in mind that night fishing charters are also available!

You’ll fish from a 21’ Mako center console, a boat that runs on a 150 HP Mercury engine and can accommodate 4 anglers. It uses all the modern GPS, fishfinder, and radio electronics for efficient navigation and is equipped with livewell to supply you with live bait. There’s also an ice-box so you can store your fish and drinks.

You’ll have lots of fun as you chase Bonnethead Shark, Catfish, Black Grouper, Redfish, and other quality species that roam the inshore and nearshore waters around Savannah. You’ll catch them using bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, and drift fishing, all on light tackle. Kids of 12 or more can come aboard as well and you’re free to keep all the fish you catch if you wish to.

Captain David will provide all the tackle, bait, drinks, and even fishing licenses, so yours is only to pick a date and arrive on time.

Come aboard and have a fishing trip of a lifetime, Chatham Inshore Charters and Captain David are waiting for you!
