Big Red’s Fishing Charters

Make an adventure out of your next trip to Coastal Georgia and go fishing with Big Red’s Fishing Charters. Captain Justin will be your guide, which means you’ll tap into years of angling experience.

These waters are known for speckled trout, redfish, flounder, bonnethead sharks, and more – with any luck, they’ll make your reel scream. Depending on the species you’re after, you may find yourself spinning, bottom fishing, or maybe something more specialized in this area.

If you’re traveling with the family, you will be glad to know that kids are welcome aboard! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. Also, remember to bring snacks so that nobody gets grumpy on an empty belly!

Capt. Justin runs a 21’ Key West bay boat with a capacity for 3 passengers. It comes with all the essentials. Capt. Justin has rods and reels for you, along with lures and live bait.

The charter boat covers your fishing license, just show up ready for some fishing! Have in mind that some fish may have harvest limits or closed seasons. If you don’t know what to expect, ask the captain. It’s always wise to bring sunscreen (non-spray), bottled water, and sunglasses. If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but try to avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

Big Red’s Fishing Charters will make it easy for you to go fishing in Midway. So, how about booking that trip?

If you want to target sheepshead please let me know ahead of time and I can make sure to have the correct live bait on the boat. This trip can be long and hot so it is geared more for the experienced fisherman.
