Inshore Fishing near St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and Sea Island can hang with any destination at certain times of year. While our area may not be as famous as our southern neighbor, we have some awesome inshore fishing without the crowd. While everyone flocks to Florida to be among thousands of other fishing boats, you will be in a scenic paradise and seldom see another boat close by.
When I say that it is a “well kept secret” I don’t just say it to fill in words on a page. There are some things that you can do here that you just don’t find everywhere.
When you think of Tarpon fishing, you probably think of Boca Grande Pass. Where do you think the best Tripletail fishing in the world is??? I say it is here in Georgia.
How about the best sight fishing for tailing Redfish in the grass??? I’ll put Georgia up against any destination. Mosquito Lagoon might be famous for great sight fishing but the wary fish there can be hard to get a bite out of. Our fish eat!
A lot of people travel to Steinhatchee Florida to take advantage of some good Trout fishing. Here, it is not uncommon to have days of catching 50 or more Trout.
Georgia truly is a world class inshore fishery. We just don’t have the “buzz” that other destinations have. Although we need the business, I am happy that we don’t have docks full of charter boats and busy waterways. The pressure on our fish is minimal and that ensures that you can still come experience what you no longer could in more trendy fishing destinations.
Whether you want to fish with live bait, artificial plugs, or soft plastics, we have the knowledge and experience to take you to the best fishing St. Simons Island has to offer in our inshore waters.
One of the most sought after catches is the Inshore Slam (Trout, Redfish, Flounder). Below is a picture of Captain TJ Cheek with a tournament winning Inshore Slam. Captain TJ and Captain Tim won the first annual Jekyll Island Inshore Slam Tournament with a beautiful slam. Come catch a slam with us!
Inshore rates cover up to 2 anglers. Add $50 for each additional angler. (Maximum number of anglers per boat is 4 on inshore fishing charters)
- 4 hours: $450
- 6 hours: $550
- 8 hours: $650
For more serious anglers we recommend at least a 6 hour trip so that we can fish multiple tide stages and locations. 4 hours is good enough for a leisurely day on the water, but it doesn’t give us much time to adapt if we need to.
We also recommend keeping your group as small as possible. There are some fishing styles that are nearly impossible with a full boat and some areas only have room for a couple of people to fish at a time. If you have a larger group it’s no big deal, there are just some things we might not be able to do.
