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 heat and water temperature have an affect on fishing. The warmer the water, the deeper the water you need to fish. Early morning/ evening are best unless you have a guide with hot spots to get you on the fish. Bring water, snacks, and good attitudes to achieve best results.

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.

Had never caught Sheepshead and wanted to try it. Wasn't expecting much but in just 3 hours we had 6 keepers and a bonus red. (Lost count of the number we threw back). Captain is attentive and knew right where to fish for them (and how to fish for them). Had one for dinner! They were fun to catch (good fighters) and very nice tablefare. Already thinking of going with Captain Marcus again next month.

Everything from start to finish was top notch. He kept in contact, he notified us of whether changes, and even provided drinking water. He made us feel safe and informed (first timers). He took us to a handful of spots where fish were jumping. He taught us a whole new way of fishing. Had patients and all the right equipment. He takes pride in his work. Thanks Travis we had a wonderful time !

The conditions weren’t ideal but the captain did his best to put us on fish. He kept pecking away and then bam we were on them. I caught my personal best redfish! I’m a part time charter captain myself in Pa/Ny and I was taught things I never knew. This captain definitely is dedicated. If you aren’t catching then I can guarantee nobody else is!
