St. Simons Island Fishing-Jekyll Island Guides-Sea Island Fishing Trips-Cumberland Island Fishing-Brunswick Georgia Fishing Charters 

Welcome to Coastal Georgia’s premier light tackle and fly fishing guide service. Located on St. Simons Island, Southeastern Angling was formed when full time guides Captain Scott Owens and Captain Rob Aldridge got together and saw the need to provide a top quality professional fishing charter service here in the Golden Isles.  The Golden Isles makes up of 4 Coastal Georgia Island which include St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Little St. Simons Island, and Sea Island.   Southeastern Angling is the only local guide service that is equipped to offers inshore, Near-shore, and offshore light tackle and fly fishing charters.  With skiffs, bay boats, and offshore center consoles from 17 to 28 feet they can take you to the backwater flats to the blue water open ocean and have a lifetime of experience do so.  Whether you’re a seasoned fly angler or a family looking to enjoy a wonderful day on the water Southeastern Angling offers trips for everyone’s needs. 

Coastal Georgia has more saltwater marsh than anywhere else in the country.  This ads up to Georgia having about 1/3 of all the saltwater marshes in the United States and with tides flooding inland from the oceans over 20 miles experience and knowledge of the eco system is a must to catch fish.  Southeastern Angling offers its clients just that. Inshore, near shore, and offshore light tackle and fly fishing charters leave from St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and several other locations around Sapelo, Cumberland, and Amelia Island which can offer access to less pressured waters.  Their main dock is located only 3 miles from Sea Island's Cloister Hotel on St. Simons Island for guests who are staying at the hotel or on Sea Island.  There is plenty of parking and clean restrooms at the dock.  Click here for FAQ and what to bring on your trip.

Inshore fishing trips around St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Cumberland Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island, and Brunswick Georgia consist of inland waters, flats, and backwater creeks around the Golden Isles where you can expect to catch trout, redfish, flounder, whiting, black drum, triple tail, and other exciting species.  

Near shore charters in St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Cumberland Island, Sea Island, Little St. Simons Island, and Brunswick Georgia consist of fishing the coastal beaches out to about 5 miles where you can expect to catch bull redfish, tarpon, cobia, sharks, triple tail, and more on one of these action packed trips!

Offshore fishing trips include bottom fishing and trolling around artificial reefs, live bottom, navy towers, and ledges from 10 to 50 miles offshore.  You can expect to catch black sea bass, cobia, amber jacks, red snapper, grouper, king mackerel, wahoo, vermilion snapper, african pompano, sharks, barracuda, trigger fish, and more on one of these deep sea charters. 

Fly fishing trips Coastal Georgia's 80 miles of coast actually makes up 1/3 of the salt marsh in the US.  That being said we have thousands of miles of shallow flats and flooded marsh where sight fishing can be done year around.  Our primary targets are Redfish, Triple Tail, Tarpon, Sharks, Jacks, Cobia and more.  All of the mentioned species can be sight fished while Redfish are our only year around target.  We specialize in shallow water sight fishing and have been featured on many nationally televised TV shows and  publications.
