According to customer reviews, Beck N Call Fishing Guide Service, Mad Gillz Fishing, and Open Boat Fishing – Atlanta are some of the most popular fishing charters in Georgia. Full list of top fishing charters in Georgia.

Beck N Call Fishing Guide Service, Mad Gillz Fishing, and Open Boat Fishing – Atlanta all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Georgia.

The most popular fish species you can target are Redfish, Striped Bass, and Flounder. Top fishing techniques include light tackle, bottom fishing, and spinning. Inshore fishing, lake fishing, and nearshore 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.

The weather can be variable as far as rain is concerned. So be sure to bring appropriate raingear. A ponch is lightweight and easy to carry. Also check with your guide to see what fish are biting in October. We were successful fishing for redfish.

I would start with a guided outing to learn where the fish are and what the fish a biting. When you see it with your own eyes, it is different than reading about it on the internet.

We had a really good experience fishing Lake Lanier with Jeremy! The 5 of us were provided with plenty of opportunity to fish and he taught us techniques for deep water fishing in the warm water of lake Lanier. My husband (this was his Father’s Day gift) was able to talk to Jeremy throughout and get tips and information on fishing this complicated lake as well as on reading the simrad to determine what fish are lurking in the depths and how best to attract them. Great day out!!

My son and I loved the fishing trip. We left early and as soon as we got our line in the water my son caught a huge striper. It was amazing and it didn't stop there we went to a few nice spots and the boat ride itself was just fun. In the end we caught a lot of fish, had a great ride learned a bit, and had our fish fileted and packaged. You guys were great, Thanks!

Captain Nick and Joe T showed us a great time of fishing. We flew in from Philly and did not have much of anything with us for fishing. They supplied everything and showed us some good fishing tips along the way. We caught many different species and the best part was bringing the fish home to eat. All around awesome day of fishing and plenty of fish stories to tell.

Got this trip to surprise my husband for his 40th birthday! I booked it for him and my two kids. My husband and kids couldn't stop telling me about how much fun they had. They told me Captain Andrew was so knowledgeable and helpful and made the trip really memorable. He told them where to meet them and it was the perfect start to my husband's birthday. Thank you Captain Andrew for making this such a fun and memorable trip. Definitely will book again!

We fished the Toccoa starting out at Tammen Park. Todd was a great guide! He was very knowledgeable about the trout fishing and about the area. He was patient and conversation was easy. We had a little bit of a slow fishing day but sometimes it happens (we took trout home to cook so we were good!) We were treated to six miles of absolutely beautifully scenery and cool clear water to fish in. The sounds of the river alone were therapeutic. We will definitely be back to this beautiful river!!!

We had a great time. Captain Andy and Shelby were very patient with the kids. They have a lot of knowledge about the area and the fish we caught. They recommended we fish for a fish called Whiting that they said was good to eat. We had some for dinner and I have to agree, they were a very tasty fish. I would highly recommend a trip with these guys.

This was the first boat ride and fishing trip for my grandkids. Despite the heat of the day Capt. Mickey had us on fish within twenty minutes. My grandson caught two bass that were larger than any I've ever caught in my 50 years of fishing. Capt. Mickey gave my grandkids a day they will be talking about for the rest of their lives. We are already scheduling another trip in the fall.Thank you Mickey Holrook for a great day: Mad Gillz Fishing.
