Georgia Fishing Guides and Charters

Are you ready for some great southern fishing, Georgia style? We are talking about the spectacular and unmatched saltwater and freshwater fishing of the state of Georgia. Georgia fishing charters and guides have the best of both worlds with a good mix of lakes and reserviors for the freshwater guides and plenty of great offshore and inshore fishing for the saltwater charters. We offer a list of Georgia fishing charters you can book for all regions of Georgia from Savannah in the NE coastal region to Brunswick and St marys in the SE Georgia coastal area. If saltwater fishing is your second choice and you would rather hit one of the many lakes throughout Georgia then we have also listed some freshwater fishing guides for Georgia.

Charter Fishing in Savannah, Georgia

For saltwater fishing and for Georgia fishing charters it all starts in Savannah and the fishing grounds around Tybee Island with some great inshore fishing for species like tarpon, shark, trout, redfish, tripletail and other popular saltwater species. For larger sport fish the Savannah fishing charters head offshore of Tybee Island into deeper water where grouper, amberjack, tuna, dolphin, wahoo, and other deep water dwellers roam. When you make your next Savannah charter fishing trip you can expect a shot at catching any of these species we’ve mentioned plus others we didn’t mention. Ask your local Georgia charter boat Captain what fish are providing all the hot action during the time you wish to fish.

Brunswick, St Simons Island Fishing Charters

Moving south of Savannah you pass numerous sounds along the beautiful Georgia coast. You arrive in Brunswick and a place called the Golden Isles of Georgia. The Golden Isles feature hot fishing spots like St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island, and Cumberland Island where the fishing charters benefit from year round warm water, plenty of baitfish, and a marine bounty that’s as good as any of the so called “fishing paradises” of the deep deep south.

St Simon’s Island fishing charters and guides target species like speckled trout, spanish mackerel, redfish, flounder, and numerous other sporting species that are more than just good fighters as they are also great on the dinner table. So if you are ready for a combination nature slash fishing trip then fishing these spectacular saltwater marshes, inlets, and waterways of south Georgia and the Golden Isles then contact your local Brunswick fishing charter today.

Lake Lanier Fishing Guides

The fishing guides of Lake Lanier target many species and styles of fishing but probably none more popular than striper fishing. The lake has great fishing for bass and other freshwater species but Lake Lanier is a premier striper fishing lake and that is what usually peeks the interest of most anglers and Lake Lanier fishing guides. Known for it’s aqua blue water and beautiful scenery Lake Lanier attracts many thousands of tourists and anglers every year to explore its 690 miles of shorelines. Lake Lanier is approximately 38 miles north of Atlanta, GA and is a 38,000 acre lake.

Georgia Bass Fishing Guides

Not interested in deep sea fishing and would rather go bass fishing? Would you rather take it easy on a calm lake casting your topwater plug up to the bank for a trophy bass? If you prefer to fish for a lunker in freshwater then Georgia has quite a few lakes, reservoirs, and plenty of professional bass fishing guides for hire. Any Georgia bass fishing guide will tell you that the state has some fine fishing for both largemouth bass and trout. Georgia offers some of the best, and most diverse, fishing opportunities in the Southeast with more than 500,000 acres of reservoirs available to anglers.
