    5 out of 5 stars
    My son and I fished with Rob for two days in mid Oct targeting redfish. The weather really didn’t cooperate much to go offshore for the big bull reds but Rob put us on the fish anyway. Our first day we tried a couple different spots before we found a honey hole and landed 40 or more reds between 16-26 inches in about three hours. It was an incredible rush to fight fish constantly for three hours. Our second day the weather again didn’t cooperate but we decided to target big fish because we had done so well the first day numbers wise. We tried a few different locations and landed two big reds over 40 inches and had several others hooked up. We also had fun filling the down time with stingrays, sharks, and whiting. Rob was a total pro and I would highly recommend him to all of my friends and family looking for a great guide who knows his stuff and can find the fish even when the elements don’t want to cooperate. read more John B

    I chartered a 6 hour trip to target Tarpon so my Son and I could really experience the local fishery.Our Captain, Rob didn't disappoint. Right off the bat we hooked a couple of big Tarpon who put on an air show. Rob was great at finding several hot spots and we were hooking up again to bring several more very nice Tarpon to the boat. A great day and a great memory for my son and I. read more Scott B

St. Simons Island – Jekyll Island

Coastal Georgia has more saltwater marsh than anywhere else in the country. This expansive marsh makes up for nearly 1/3 of all of the saltwater marsh in the United States, and with a large tidal range that floods inland upwards of 20 miles from the coast, experience and knowledge of the ecosystem is key to consistently catching fish and most importantly your safety.

Southeastern Angling guides all have this experience and offer their clients inshore, near shore, and offshore light tackle and fly fishing charters in the waters around the area. They fish the waters around Sea Island, Saint Simons Island, Jekyll Island, Little St. Simons Island, Brunswick, and several other locations around Cumberland, St. Mary’s, Amelia Island, and Sapelo that provide access to less pressured waters.  In Florida they offer trips in the lower Keys and Everglades National park.

Primary departure points

Southeastern Angling’s fishing charters depart from convenient locations on St. Simons Island and Jekyll Island. In addition, pick ups on Cumberland Island, Sapelo Island, Brunswick, Darien, and St. Mary’s can be arranged.  Southeastern Angling’s St. Simons Island pick up location is only 3 miles from The Sea Island Cloister Hotel and Resorts.

Southeastern Angling’s  Guides practice catch and release with Red Drum.
