Deep Sea Fishing in Savannah

Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia, and attracts visitors year-round. But there’s one thing tourists may forget about – deep sea fishing in Savannah, Georgia! Located on the border with South Carolina, the city offers a short run to the Gulf Stream, bringing plenty of angling opportunities.

What to Expect

While not as close to the Gulf Stream nor the continental shelf as North Carolina and Florida, deep sea fishing in Savanna, GA, is comparable to that in South Carolina. While the Stream itself lies about 60 miles offshore, its impact can be felt just 10 or 20 miles offshore, giving you the chance to land some monster fish on even a six hour trip. 
 
Most trips tend to last a little longer, however, with charter captains preferring to maximize your time fishing. Spend a full day our even longer on the water to get the most out of these rich fishing grounds. 
 
Beware, though, as the choppy waters of the Atlantic Ocean are not for the faint-hearted. You’ll want to have your sea legs ready, along with plenty of experience with a rod and reel, before coming aboard to battle it out with some prized fish. 

What fish can I catch?

Depending on how far out you go, there’s a range of different fish on offer when deep sea fishing in Savannah, GA. In the shallow waters up to 20 miles out, you can expect some delicious and strong Groupers, Snappers, Cobia, Barracuda, Amberjacks, and more.
 
Head a little further out, and the real monster fish start biting. Every angler worth their salt will relish the opportunity to go up against Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and even Marlin, as you look to land the catch of a lifetime. 

When to Go

Unlike the inshore fishing on offer in Savannah year-round, deep sea fishing has a very set season. Not only do the waters get dangerously choppy in winter, but the big fish also disappear. Your best bet for a successful Savannah deep sea fishing charter is in summer, as the pelagic fish migrate north along the east coast, with the season typically running from May through September.

How to Prepare

Depending on how far you go out, you may have a different fishing experience. Some boats that take you up to 20 miles out may be a bit exposed to the elements. Make sure to wrap up warm if you’re fishing from a center console or something similar. Boasts that take you far offshore, meanwhile, will usually feature a cabin for your comfort. You should still take care, but you’ll be sure to feel at home aboard these bigger vessels.
 
However far you go, though, it’s likely that you’ll need to bring your own drinks and snacks. Check with your captain if they’ll provide a cooler for you to stock them in or if you need to bring your own, and away you go. 
 
This is so much more than just a historical town with a seafront. Come deep sea fishing in Savannah, GA, and experience it all!

What anglers said about Deep Sea Fishing in Savannah

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.

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

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.

The experience was fantastic. 1st the live bait had to be caught. Then captain Matt knew where to go to catch fish. We were reeling in as fast as the bait hit the water. Great fishing day.
