Georgia’s oldest and fourth largest city is a place brimming with historical landmarks of all kinds. From the Georgia Historical Society to the Telfair Academy of Arts and Sciences, you’re sure to find something that piques your curiosity. Savannah fishing charters also have a reputation to uphold and can take you anywhere from the backcountry to the Gulf Stream. Some charters here have a professional history of more than half a decade. To this day, they maintain only the highest standards of service.

Savannah Fishing Spots

Any time is a good time for fishing in Savannah. Really. Winter makes for great fishing near the river mouths and on Green Island, while summer is the optimal time to go offshore. The local reefs and wrecks are fishing hotspots during the entire year.

Lower Ogeechee River

Savannah itself is right next to South Carolina, and it’s the Ogeechee River that separates the two. The river becomes a Trout hotspot in the fall-winter season when catching more than a hundred in a single day is definitely doable. It’s also safe to assume you’ll be able to nab some Reds at any time of the year in these waters. Variety trips, such as nighttime Shark fishing, are also a great way to enjoy yourself on the water.

Green Island

Green Island has prominent marshland, making it the best place to find Redfish in the Savannah area. It’s especially a good place to visit later in the year when the water temperatures drop. The fish will flock to the backcountry and you’ll have a field day out there.

Wilmington Island

Wilmington Island is a coastal suburb that’s close to the immediate southeast of Savannah proper. It’s popular both as a shore-fishing destination and departure point for a number of fishing charters that head offshore to the Gulf Stream. Surf anglers can fish the creek bends for Trout, Redfish, and Flounder.

Offshore Waters

As with most other parts of coastal Georgia, the best time to go offshore fishing is early summer. The season starts around mid-April, with Cobia, Kingfish and other species starting their northern migration.

To hook fish like Wahoo, Tuna, and Billfish, you’ll need to reach the Gulf Stream’s western edges, which can mean an 80-mile trek. This involves a 12-hour trip at the very least. On most trips, you will leave before dawn and be back for lunch.

You can have great fun fishing over the R7 and R8 Navy Towers for species like Amberjack, Cobia, and Barracuda. The towers are some 50 miles away, so you have time to do some trolling on the way out to the fishing grounds.

For shorter trips, it’s best to stick to Georgia’s abundant artificial reefs in coastal waters. These are located about 5-15 miles away from shore. Species like Black Seabass, Bull Redfish, Flounder, and Sheepshead can be found there. Look for floating debris to increase your chances of finding a keeper. Kingfish, Barracuda, Grouper, Amberjack, Little Tunny and many more species will also make an appearance depending on the time of year.

Fishing Techniques

Inshore fishing involves going into rivers and estuaries with plenty of shallow flats and marshland. It’s a matter of preference whether you choose to stick with regular light tackle or maybe do some fly fishing. Come winter, the waters become very clear, making for great sight fishing.

When visiting the closer wrecks to bottom fish for Sheepshead or other smaller fish, you can still make do with light tackle. But if you go farther out in search of Cobia or Amberjack, make sure to have heavier tackle too (in the 60-80 lb test range). A good thing to know about catching Bull Redfish near wrecks is that they are suckers for deep jigging. Diamond jigs are almost sure to get the job done.

It’s really easy to experiment with all sorts of fishing techniques once you’re in Savannah. Other things you can do include trolling nearshore for Kingfish, sight fishing for Cobia, and going after Little Tunny on light tackle. Any of these can be great on their own, but mix them up and you’re in for an unforgettable experience.

Need to Know

Any anglers over the age of 16 need to have a valid South Carolina recreational fishing license. This is the case no matter if you’re fishing from the beach, pier, or a boat. Licensed Savannah fishing charters cover this for their guests at no additional cost.

Savannah is one of those places where you come for something and end up staying for a different reason altogether. Fishing might be the thing that drew you in, but there’s plenty of other things to keep you hooked.

January

Hardly a better time to go fishing inshore than winter! Be it poling the flats for Reds or checking out the wrecks for Sheepshead, anything goes.

February

Hundreds of Redfish will be nested in the flats, waiting for you to hook ‘em up. You can find Black Seabass and Flounder on the wrecks as well.

March

The waters are still cool, but getting warmer by the week. There’s still a lot of Redfish to be found in the backcountry, with other species also headed inshore.

April

Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and bigger Sharks will be making an appearance around this time, and it’s a great time to be fishing near Wilmington Island.

May

May in Savannah is Cobia month! Cobia love being near anything that floats above the surface. Use bait like Minnows or Shrimp for the best results.

June

By this time, most species that you can catch offshore have arrived in this part of the Gulf Stream. Deep sea fishing is on fire, both when trolling and when bottom fishing.

July

Late summer is when you can see a decent number of Tarpon coming in. If you’ve yet to tackle the Silver King yourself, now’s the chance to do it!

August

At this time of year, some fly fishermen like to go out a bit further out, near Little Tybee Island, and try their luck at Tarpon there. Worth checking out if you’re into casting flies.

September

Inshore anglers are sure to be reaping rich harvests of Trout, Reds and Flounder, anywhere from creeks, rivers, inlets, sounds and bays.

October

Spotted Seatrout and Redfish can be found schooling this time of the year, but it’s not a guarantee. If you do get lucky, enjoy the bite!

November

If you don’t mind a travelling a longer distance, you’re in for a treat as the blue waters of the Gulf hold big game fish this time of year.

December

Winter fishing in Savannah can involve a variety of places, with Trout in deep holes, Redfish on the flats and Sheepshead around any kind of structure.

Sunscreen. And to not try and specifically target a single species. To many options and variables just go and have fun. A bad day on the water is still a great day

Bring a hat, sunscreen, and a jacket. Most definitely be prepared to document your experience with either a camera or phone. The captain was very knowledgeable about historical places and landmarks, as well as about the wildlife. We saw many migratory birds. In my opinion, this added tremendously to the experience. Most of all, be open minded, and willing to experience it all. Just because you dont catch fish, doesnt mean you wont have a good time.

The experience was fantastic. 1st the live bait had to be caught. Then captain Matt knew where to go to catch fish. We were reeling in as fast as the bait hit the water. Great fishing day.

Highly recommend!!! Captain Tucker knows what he’s doing!! We caught roughly 30 fish (17 keepers) in 4 hours! We went fishing at possibly the worst time of the year (cold, early-January) and walked away with a freezer full of trout and red fish! Definitely planning to re-book this fall!

We had an amazing time! Captain Tucker was great with the kids. He also went above and beyond to find good spots for us to catch fish. Unfortunately, the fish weren't cooperating. We still had a lot of fun! We saw dolphins, a sea ferret, and a deer! My husband said that this was a wonderful birthday present!!

He basically told us what he hoped would happen and it did. Once we got on the fish, he stayed busy telling us where to cast and baiting poles. We probably caught 40-50 fish. I need up with ten keeper sea trout and two red fish. Captain Andy had a great attitude and work ethic. We weren’t disappointed and this wasn’t our first rodeo. Five stars!

Good fishing along bull river. I appreciated the captains method of learn by doing. Basically he put a rod in your hand, gave a simple instruction and let you loose. Captain had great confidence with the not so friendly sea life such as the sting ray and the shark.

Captain Andy made every effort to make sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. He was very full of local history and fishing knowledge as well. He put us on fish right away. The waves were a bit unkind and the trip ended early, but Captain Andy was great. My next trip to Savannah GA will most definitely include a visit to see Captain Andy and do some fishing. Hands down the best charter trip I've ever been on.
