Deep Sea Fishing in Georgia

The “Peach State” may be famed for its freshwater fishing, but saltwater angling enthusiasts shouldn’t discount the incredible opportunities on offer in the Atlantic. The 100-mile long coastline boasts plenty of harbors with charters ready to take you on a Georgia deep sea fishing adventure. Come aboard and see what this small but proud state has to offer!

What to Expect

It may take a little longer to get to the continental shelf from Georgia than in neighboring Florida, but there’s still plenty of deep sea action. The Gulf Stream’s impact on this fishery can be felt as little as 20 miles out, with plenty of big, strong, and delicious fish making their way past. 
 
You’ll need at least six hours on the water to experience deep sea fishing in Georgia, with trips lasting as long as a couple of days. Get ready for a serious battle! Cobia, Mackerel, Barracuda, Amberjacks, Groupers, and even the famed Red Snapper rub shoulders with Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and other big game creatures up to 60 miles offshore.
 
As you need to get further out, the price of a deep sea trip can be quite costly. But avid anglers will relish the opportunity to do battle with the monsters that live here. Beware, though! Georgia deep sea fishing is not for the faint-hearted. Beginners may be better off opting for  a cheaper nearshore trip to learn the ropes.

Where and When to Go

While the fishing in Georgia is phenomenal year-round, deep sea fishing can be temperamental. The pelagic species that you’ll target in the deep arrive in the summer months as they follow the Gulf Stream northbound. 
 
To get the shortest run at the productive offshore fishing grounds, you’ll want to be as far out as possible before starting your voyage. Thankfully, Georgia boasts plenty of causeways and islands in the Atlantic to get you going. While Savannah and Brunswick have plenty on offer, trips from Jekyll or St. Simon’s Islands are your best bet. 

How to Prepare

Boats that take you up to 60 miles out will always come fitted with your comfort in mind. Offshore sportfishing boats allow plenty of room for you to relax. If you’re hitting the waters up to 20 miles out, you may be fishing from a center console. You should wrap up warm on these open vessels, and beware that there may not be a toilet. 
 
However far you go on your Georgia deep sea fishing trip, you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of drinks and snacks for a full day. Some captains may have their own cooler, but make sure to have enough stock to fill it up. 
 
With fishing licenses covered on Georgia deep sea fishing charters, there’s not much left for you to do than get booking. Come and discover these underrated waters and get your fish on!

Fishing in Savannah in September was some of the best fishing we ever had. Everything was so active and the temperatures were beautiful.

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.

Go in the Fall. Cooler and you will most likely have better luck. Choose an AM trip.
