Welcome to Southeastern Angling, Coastal Georgia’s premier light tackle and fly fishing guide service.

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.
