If you want to hit Georgia’s best fishing spots in search of Bass, Trout, Walleye, Perch, and more, Reel Time Charters is the name to remember. Based out of Mount Airy, GA, they’ll take you to the area’s top lakes and streams in search of all these fish and many more.

Captain Richard Allen started running charters to share his love of his native waters with as many people as possible. Let him show you just how good the fishing here is – you have to see it to believe it!

You’ll be fishing aboard a 20’ Glassmaster center console. Built in 2012, she comes powered by a 150 HP Yamaha outboard. She’s no slow coach, that’s for sure. She features GPS and fishfinder to pinpoint Capt. Richard’s favorite spots and home in on the biggest fish around. She also has a trolling motor to let you sneak up on spooky fish without them ever knowing.

Depending on when you visit, you could be fishing for anything from Crappie and Largemouth Bass to Rainbow and Lake Trout. With such a variety of species on offer, you’ll need a wide mix of equipment to get the most out of your day. That’s exactly what you’ll get, with both light and heavy tackle and the option to troll, spin, pop, jig, and bottom fish the day away.

All Reel Time Charters trips come with rods, reels, live bait, and lures – everything you’ll need for the day’s fishing. Just bring your fishing license and plenty of food and drinks and jump aboard for a great day on the water!

Captain Richard Allen was lucky enough to be taken fishing since he was a young child. Growing up on and around the water, fishing has always been his passion. If he can catch a fish, he's happy. If he can help someone else do so, that's even better in his book! Capt. Richard loves using artificial baits like swimbaits, crankbaits, and topwater lures. He is more than happy to take you fishing any way you choose, though.
