Spartina Adventures wants to welcome you to the marshes of the Golden Isles. Explore its rich inshore and nearshore waters along with intriguing wrecks, flats, and the backcountry, and have lots of fun as you catch fish. Captain Tim knows where the best spots are and he’ll use all his knowledge and skills to put you on the bite. Join him and have a memorable fishing experience with Spartina Adventures!

You’ll fish from a restored 22’ Skeeter bay boat that can sit 4 anglers. It runs on a 175 HP Suzuki engine with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots, uses a wireless trolling motor, and has all the modern GPS and fishfinder electronics for efficient navigation. You’ll also have access to a livewell in order to get live bait.

Some of the numerous species you can target include Jack Crevalle, Cobia, Whiting, Black Drum, Tarpon, and many more. Using light tackle, you can try out bottom fishing, spinning, jigging, popping, as well as fly fishing. Feel free to bring your kids along and have a lovely family stay in nature. You can keep and take home the fish you catch but Redfish is to be released.

Captain Tim will provide you with all the tackle, lures, fishing licenses, and he’ll also clean and fillet your catch. You just bring some food and drinks and you’re ready for the adventure.

Fish with Spartina Adventures and have a great time on the water!

Join Captain Timothy on the waters of Coastal Georgia and have a great time chasing fish and enjoying our beautiful coast. For 25+ years I’ve been in the Restaurant hospitality industry so I could fish days and work at night. For the last 14 years I’ve been fishing professional tournaments for Redfish from Texas to South Carolina with a lot of success.
