Explore Fishing Charters, Deep-Sea Fishing, Fishing Tours and Saltwater Fishing in Coastal Georgia and the Golden Isles

The Golden Isles of Georgia offers a vast coastal ecosystem of salt marshes, tidal creeks, winding rivers, sounds and the Atlantic Ocean is unspoiled, healthy, and brimming with fish of all types.

The vast expanse of the ocean is an irresistible lure for those who seek the excitement and challenge of deep sea and offshore angling. Minutes by boat and up to 45 miles from the coast of the Golden Isles are bars, buoys, natural and man-made reefs and holes. Trolling with live bait can mean strikes by king mackerel, Spanish mackerel, cobia, grouper, snapper, amberjack and others, especially from May to September. And within a few miles from shore, shark and tarpon can usually be hooked with the best times for these sport fish being mid-summer through September. In addition to a fishing license requirement, for saltwater fishing in our area, there are some limits to the number of fish that may be caught per day. Hooking up with one of this area's many expert charter captains who know these waters so well will add to the fun and success of your outing. Most charters include all the gear, bait and tackle you'll need.

St. Simons Island Pier
For those looking to cast a line or toss a crab trap themselves, the St. Simons Island Pier located on the waterfront of the Pier Village is buzzing day and night with activity and curious onlookers. The Pier is the heartbeat of the village are and pretty much the entire island at large, and here you'll find the perfect spot for people watching or trying your luck at catching something from the bounty of the Atlantic.

Explore fresh catches

St. Simons Island Pier

The St. Simons Island Pier serves as the epicenter and focal point of the Pier Village and the island itself. The Pier is busy around the clock with activity, including fishing for trout, redfish, flounder, and not uncommon sharks. Locals are known to cast a line or a crab trab in search of a fresh dinner, and the spectacle always draws a crowd of curious onlookers. Fishing does require a permit, which is available along with bait, tackle and fishing supplies at the nearby St. Simons Bait & Tackle which remains open through the evening.

Seabirds and storks are also common sightings and have no problem coming too close for comfort! The Pier extends out into the Atlantic causeway between St. Simons, Jekyll Island, and the Port of Brunswick. Huge cargo ships pass by almost daily carrying loads of auto imports, exports and who knows what else. Their sheer size and surprising speed is always something that invokes a long stare as it passes by. Visitors to the Pier Village congregate on and around the Pier, as it bustles with folks walking off an evening meal or enjoying a tasty ice cream or frozen treat. The waterfront is home to Neptune Park, the Georgia Casino building (not the gambling kind, but rather a banquet hall and gathering place), and the many shops, restaurants and businesses that populate the Pier Village area. Please note that dogs or any animals are NOT allowed on the Pier at any time.
