Frequently Asked Questions about Fishing Charters in Georgia

According to customer reviews, Capt. Zach's Charters, Bad Intentions Fishing Charters, and Island Angler Charters – Island Angler I are some of the most popular fishing charters in Georgia. Full list of top fishing charters in Georgia.

The average price for a private 4 hour Georgia fishing trip is $484, while an 8 hour private trip will cost you $762 based on prices on FishingBooker.com.

Capt. Zach's Charters, Bad Intentions Fishing Charters, and Island Angler Charters – Island Angler I all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Georgia.

The most popular fish species you can target are Redfish, Flounder, and Black Drum. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Spinning, and Bottom Fishing. Inshore fishing, nearshore fishing, and river fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Georgia is known for its incredible freshwater fisheries and some vastly underestimated saltwater ones, too. With over 4,000 miles of streams, countless lakes and rivers, and 100 miles of Atlantic coastline, hopping aboard a Georgia fishing charter is an adventure. You’ll get a warm welcome both on and off the water in the “Peach State!”

Let’s kick it off with freshwater fishing. You’ll find several species of Black Bass in Georgia’s waters, including Largemouth, Smallmouth, Redeye, and Shoal. There’s also incredible Spotted and Striped Bass action. If it’s table fare you’re after, Brown, Rainbow, and Brook Trout make for excellent targets in the streams. And if that wasn’t enough, try targeting Walleye, Crappie, Bream, and Catfish.

In the saltwater marshes and inshore Atlantic waters, you can count on an abundance of Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and even Tarpon! Head to the reefs and wrecks for delicious Red Snapper and Black Seabass, or into even deeper waters for Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Marlin, and a variety of Tuna.

Those who only have a few hours to spend on the water will have a great time targeting freshwater fish or inshore saltwater targets. For record-breakers, however, set aside a full day. The productive bottom and offshore fishing grounds are 20–60 miles offshore, so a full or extended full day on the water is necessary.

You’ll find charters across the state. If you’re saltwater fishing, Savannah and Jekyll Island are excellent starting points. To target Trout, explore the Blue Ridge area. For Bass and Walleye, Lake Lanier and Lake Seminole are renowned fisheries.

Rules & Regulations

All anglers over the age of 16 will need to purchase a fishing license before hopping aboard a charter. Your captain will keep you informed of all regulations related to open seasons and bag limits.

January

While the weather may be unfriendly, the Redfish bite around the Golden Isles will keep your blood pumping throughout the cold! Lake Seminole will warm your heart with its exciting and productive Bass fishing. 

February

Lake Lanier is a popular winter destination due to the Striped Bass bite, which is really good during the cold months. You can also find Crappies here and in other lakes near the marinas and other larger structures. 

March

Largemouth Bass and Crappies can be caught in shallower waters on warmer days. For saltwater anglers the main target will be the Whiting, while Flounder starts creeping in during this month. 

April

Clarks Hill Lake sees Crappies moving in during early April and late March. The Bass move into spawning pockets during April, they can be caught with a variety of different baits. 

May

Tripletail starts to move in the waters of Jekyll Island in May. Other saltwater fishing is picking up speed really quickly during this month – you can expect to go inshore for some reel-screaming action!

June

If you’re a Tarpon fanatic this is the month you should be in Georgia, St. Simons and Jekyll islands have been hubs of Tarpon action in the past several years. Blacktip Sharks are a popular target in June as well. 

July

The Tarpon are moving into coastal rivers and inlets during this month, they can be seen rolling and feeding on the surface. Flathead Catfish can also be caught in holes on outside bends of the Altamaha River.

August

Blue Catfish are mostly targeted during August, with the state record (over 80 lbs) Catfish caught in August. They’ll go for live Bream or cut Shad, if you present it near the bottom. You can also go after Carp at Clarks Hill Lake. 

September

Bull Redfish are moving in the sounds during September, the perfect time to go after that trophy fish! You can catch Flounders even from piers, as well as Whitings. Spotted Seatrouts and Tarpon are kicking in in greater numbers too.

October

Tarpon are moving out this month, hurry up if you’re looking to tick one off of your catch list. Time to go for trophy Brown Trouts in the Chattahoochee River. Bass, Catfish, and Crappies are all popular targets to go after.

November

If you’ve got some ice in your veins you can go wading down the Toccoa River for the gorgeous Rainbow Trout. Spotted Seatrouts bite really well during November, but that also depends on the weather.

December

Bass fishing is the name of the game in December, just know that bait choice is crucial during this period – you find the right bait and you’ll have a much easier time with the fish. Look for schools of baitfish to tip you off where to target.

Make sure to see the weather beforehand because it can affect the biting, but, just be patient because even with stormy conditions, I felt the sharks bite and it was a hell of a time :)

If you are booking a fishing trip, Travis is your guy. We had an absolute blast. We were booked on a day with bad weather and he called us and pushed it to the next day so we had a great day. We were not experienced fishers and he was very patient and made sure we had fun. Also, pulling up to the dock, we had may more fish than the other charters so he knows his stuff. Travis IS Georgia fishing. No need to look at any other captains. He is THE captain.

Go with the recommendation of your captain based on the tides, but the middle of the day is HOT! My family was ready to head in at noon. I would recommend the morning or evening if the tides agree.

It’s hot!!! Wear sunscreen or SPF shirt. Our captain helped us move to a more shady area which helped; however, depending on the fish you catch you might not be able to get in the shade.

Fishing Jekyll island is a great experience. The only issue with fishing in July is obviously the heat. So as long as you are prepared for the heat and sun, you will be fine.

Captain Marcus was fantastic. Very personable and easy going. Stayed in contact with us from booking to arrival. He was there waiting for us when we arrived 20 minutes early. Kept the hooks baited and was very attentive to our needs. when the fish weren't biting he took us to other spots to get us fish. Although they weren't biting much today we had a great time! I highly recommend Captain Macus and Bad Intentions Fishing Charters!

We did a father son fishing trip and we’re blessed beyond measure to have had Captain Hunter as our guide. He was patient, super organized, very knowledgeable, and his attention to detail was on another level. He made sure we understood all the how, what, and why’s of inshore fishing. I can not recommend Unforeseen Charters enough. We will definitely be back!

With a laid back atmosphere and plenty of knowledge, Malik made our morning on the lake fun. I asked him to teach me some new techniques, and he happily did. I caught my first fish on a shakey head and learned how to work a top water stick bait. We landed 4 different species of fish, and had a wonderful trip.

Captain Len knows what he’s doing. Won’t go wrong booking with him. Will repeat. Slow start to the day but had several fish in the boat before 11am with a couple personal records. Carters lake is clean and beautiful as well. Lots of wildlife spotted in addition to a great fishing trip. You won’t regret the experience.

Travis took us too four different spots caught fish at every spot and managed to land 7 different species. Just a lot of fun and full of fish. Also he does an amazing job at capturing the trip with high quality pictures. Would highly recommend and if we get back to Tybee would choose him.

I recently booked with captain Hoek for a four hour morning trip. He was on time and ready to go. His prices were more than reasonable. I honestly have no complaints . I would absolutely book with him again. We plan on a better time of year so the fishing is a little more active . All and all it was still a fun trip and he even let my son drive the boat which literally made his day!
