January

The wrecks near the south end of the island are brimming with huge Bull Reds and Sheepshead this time of year. The old lighthouse will keep you company while you await the bite.

February

The flats are still clear enough for some good sight fishing to be done. Seeing schools of fish in inches-deep water is almost as exciting as hooking them.

March

It’s still a bit early for Tripletail, and the strong northern winds will be your main obstacle in getting fish. A good idea is to drift shrimp at a relative distance from the fish.

April

More and more sharks will be moving in as the month goes on, with the best place to find them being a mile or two southeast of Jekyll Island.

May

The second half of May usually marks a great start as far as offshore fishing goes. You shouldn’t have to go more than a dozen miles out to find reefs teeming with Cobia.

June

This is when you can expect Tripletail to move further inshore to sounds and rivers. Try using Pogies and live Shrimp for the best results when going after them there.

July

f the water is warm enough, we can expect to see some serious Tarpon moving in around this time. 80°F is what everyone is hoping to see, and it is usually the case.

August

Around the end of summertime, the anglers who aren’t knee-deep in Tarpon are the ones focused on Sharks. Offshore fishing is also amazing, but it’s hard to ignore the Silver King.

September

September is usually when inshore fishing picks up again. From Redfish to Trout, Black Drum, and Flounder, you can get real diversity out of your trip.

October

White Shrimp is considered to be the best Georgia has to offer in terms of seafood, so do yourself a favor and try it while it’s in season, because it won’t be for very long.

November

Expect to hear local anglers mention the “Redfish roundup.” This means the Bull Reds go into a feeding frenzy, giving you a perfect chance to help them out.

December

The reefs close to St. Andrews Beach continue to be home to plenty of Black Seabass and Bull Redfish, while the clear inshore waters make for fantastic sight fishing.

This was my dad and my first saltwater fishing excursion and it far exceeded expectations! Even with choppy waters it was a blast! Captain Shelby went above and beyond in educating us and making it fun and memorable. We were unsure of who to pick and we can both say we’re very glad we went with Shelby!

Captain Tim knows the water ways, fish, and does not hesitate to change things up when the fish are not biting in one area. Great Captain and a great guy, you will not be bored. He will be the only charter I book from here on.

Captain Andy and Shelby for us on the fish right away! They provided everything we needed and even helped us catch a beautiful shark. They were flexible with our start time as we were coming from about an hour away. They filleted 30+ fish for us in record time. Highly recommend this experience 😃

The fishing wasn't particularly good due to conditions...not lack of effort on Capt. Tim's part. I learned a lot about what I should do to catch more fish. Along with that we had a lot of fun,lots of laughs and a safe, enjoyable trip. I will no doubt go out with Capt.Tim again in the future.

We had the best time. Captain Tim set us up in the perfect spot for our kids to catch a fish on almost every cast. Despite having our two eager kids to keep busy, Capt. Tim was as relentless as the trout and ladyfish hitting our hooks. He kept hooking up a steady stream of about 200 shrimp as our family caught nine species of fish with 5 keeper trout. We would recommend Spartina Adventures to anyone looking to fish in the Golden Isles.

Me and my daughter had an excellent time, crew was very knowledgeable about fishing and the area. Boat and equipment were great. We caught a good number of sharks, biggest was around 110lbs. We also saw a lot of dolphins swimming around. I would highly recommend them and will be going back when in the area again.

We took the morning trip with Captain Tim and had a great time! There were 4 in our party and we were all able to catch many fish. We have been on a number of fishing charters over the years and Captain Tim was one of the most friendly and attentive. He took the time to instruct us on the best way to fish in this area and taught us a bit about the waters here in coastal Georgia. The boat was clean and fast so it was a fun ride both out and in. Highly recommend!

We had a great 4 hour trip with Captain Andy and Shelby. They focused on exactly what we wanted, helped us along the way, and were focused on making sure we had a great experience. We caught enough Whiting to eat for dinner, and also a bunch of other interesting fish which we threw back. Would 100% recommend and we plan to do this again next year with Captain Andy.

My wife and I had an awesome time drove 18 hours from Oklahoma to come here and we chose Tim to fish with. We are sure glad we did from the time we threw our first cast to when it was time to wrap it up we where in the fish. He was a great dude with a great personality he told you were to throw the line and as soon as it got in the water where he said to it was “fish on”. Would definitely recommend to anyone out there he's the man!
