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!

You just have to move around and have a fish finder to make sure you are on the schools.

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.

Shades, a good hat, and sun screen along with a great attitude and remember that even when they are not hitting, it is better than a day in the office.

Worth every penny to have an experienced guide. The float trip was so much nicer than just a wade trip.

Sunscreen. And to not try and specifically target a single species. To many options and variables just go and have fun. A bad day on the water is still a great day

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.
