Fishing in Georgia

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.

Georgia Fishing Seasons

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.

Weather can be unpredictable. It was very cold and windy this morning, but just a few days ago it was in the 80s. The good news is the gnats aren’t as bad when it’s cold.

This was a very good trip for anglers of any skill. Captain Marcus was very helpful in helping us get onto the fish. Using live bait made it pretty easy to tell when we had bites and he was helpful in landing the fish. It was a very good, trip.

The fishing was pretty good, but the weather can always make things dicey. Our trip was rescheduled one day because of a big storm coming through the area. One thing no one tells you is to be aware of the sand gnats in early March!

Try to book a trip during the peak times for the kind of fish you are targeting. Weather is certainly an important consideration as well. Booking on a week day is probably a good idea as well. There will be less competition for the fishing spots you need to investigate.

Be sure to wear sunglasses, sunscreen, (especially on your face), warm jacket (as the air is cooler when the boat is moving around. Have patience, not everything you catch is a keeper, and you don’t catch everything that tugs on your line. Just go to enjoy being our on the water and everything else is an added bonus.

Allow lots of extra travel time if you're driving the expressways around Atlanta. Dress for the weather, it's colder out on the lake in the fall. Sunglasses are a must, the water gets very sparkly.

Had an outstanding trip out on the water with Captain Marcus. He was very knowledgeable in regards to fish as well as the local things to check out while we were visiting. He was able to put us on the fish we wanted to target and we had a blast. Great trip and would highly recommend him for anyone looking to have fun and fish. 10 out of 10 would fish again!

Marcus was the man. Very knowledgeable, knew exactly where they were biting and how to hook them. Patient when I tangled multiple lines, always replaced my bait before I could blink. Lucky enough to get us close to a couple dolphins chasing mullet in the shallows. Filleted the fish in 5 mins. Professional, but also just a cool guy to hang out with for 4 hours. 5 stars is not enough, I’d give the man and Bad Intentions 10 stars. My family and I will def be back!

This was the first deep sea fishing trip for me and my husband and although the weather was crazy windy and cold we still managed to catch a few whiting, a sting ray, as well as a small catfish and toad fish we've never heard of before. Captain Andy and Nathan were very knowledgeable and awesome. We look forward to booking another trip soon in hopes of being able to catch us a shark or two as well as other fish. We had a great time!

Captain Darrell exceeded our wildest expectations during our fishing trip on Lake Lanier. From the moment we stepped aboard his boat, his down-to-earth nature and accommodating demeanor made us feel right at home. It’s clear that he possesses an unrivaled knowledge of these waters, having honed his fishing skills since he was a child. He went above and beyond and oh yeah, we caught over 45 lbs of fish!!!
