Capt. Garrett Ross Charters

Capt. Garrett Ross Charters is owned and operated by Captain Garrett Ross, who has spent most of his life fishing the Georgia coast. Based out of Savannah, GA, Capt Garrett offers a range of inshore, flats and backcountry fishing charters.

Your vessel will be a 25’ bay boat powered by a 300HP Suzuki four-stroke engine. It comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder, accommodates up to four anglers comfortably, and features a wireless trolling motor, a large livewell to keep all bait alive and healthy, an ice box to store your catch, as well as fly fishing equipment upon request.

Capt. Garret Ross Charters offers trips from 2 to 8 hours, and will have you targeting a range of species, including inshore fishing for Bull Reds and Tarpon in the sounds, or fly fishing for Tripletail and Redfish, among others. Trips include the use of quality rods, reels and tackle, including fly fishing gear, live bait, lures, fishing license, and cleaning and bagging of your catch.

Although Capt Garrett loves fly fishing and casting artificial lures for all of the sport fish in these waters, he really just wants to catch fish. Because of the amount of nutrition in this water system, the visibility can make using lures and flies difficult, so he always comes prepared for every situation. If that means bottom fishing with cut bait, or live bait under a cork, then he is happy to do so. Having fished all over the world, he often applies tips and tricks he has picked up from other places right here in these waters. His equipment is high quality, because he feels that it not only helps catch more fish, but it improves upon the customer experience - nobody wants to spend their hard earned money and feel like they didn’t get the best experience possible. He is not just a “boat driver”, but an obsessed fisherman himself, and has a passion for watching fishing sport shows. When you go fishing with Capt Garrett, he will put forth every effort to catch fish no matter what!

    This is a quick little trip for those that are on a schedule, or maybe just want to try our fishery. 3 hours doesn't give us as much time to make many moves, but it is enough time to fish close to home, and explore the waters located all around Savannah. During most of the year, there are plenty of fish a quick boat ride away. This is also a great trip for those with young children that may not have the patience to spend the whole day on the boat.

    A four hour trip is a popular choice for many of my clients. It gives us enough time to fish multiple spots, and make a few short runs to find fish if necessary. Depending on the time of year, we'll target mostly redfish, speckled trout, flounder, black drum, and assorted other inshore fish. At certain times, Bull reds and giant jack crevalle on topwater may be an option.

    On a 6 hour trip, we are not limited as to where we can go. We have plenty of time to find the fish, and put them in the boat! We can even target multiple species depending on the season. Start off fishing for Trout and Redfish, and then change up and target Tarpon or Bull Reds for some real rod bending action.

Hi, I’m Garrett Ross, the owner and operator of Flex Appeal Charters. I am a military veteran, and have now turned my passion into a living. I grew up fishing the Georgia coast, and was driving a skiff in the back rivers and marshes of Savannah before I could even drive a car. I truly love what I do, and am excited to share my passion and knowledge of fishing with all of you. My mission is to provide a fun and safe experience for all of my customers, no matter if you are a serious angler, or fishing for the first time. At the end of the day, I hope to leave our trip having made new friends, not just clients.
