Here you’ll find customer testimonials sent directly to us via our feedback page. These represent just a small fraction of the many happy clients we’ve done fishing charters for over the years.
By the way, if you’re skeptical about testimonials, we can’t blame you. Many fishing charters fake their testimonials. That’s one reason we’re grateful that many of our happy clients also write online reviews of our company on sites we can’t control.

“All 3 of us caught multiple jacks that ranged upwards of 40 pounds and were pound for pound one of the best fighting fish in the ocean!”
On August 11th, 2018, we booked a 3 man trip for tarpon with Captain Scott Owens. I had read solid reviews and knew that we would likely find a few tarpon, but I had no idea how amazing of an adventure we were in for! Scott covered a ton of water to get us onto the hot fishing. Once we arrived, he almost instantly spotted a large school of yellow tail jacks. We quickly hooked up on DOAs and the fights were on! All 3 of us caught multiple jacks that ranged upwards of 40 pounds and were pound for pound one of the best fighting fish in the ocean! From there, we moved into the tarpon grounds and I was absolutely amazed by the number of fish we were seeing. Once we found the bait and settled in, the ocean seemed to be exploding with bait fish popping, spinner sharks breaching out of the water and our prized tarpon lazily rolling. These were relaxed fish doing their thing. This is not something you would expect to experience on the crowded coast. Captain Scott’s experience, drive and insane skills allowed my father in law to achieve the newly minted “Georgia big game slam” of tarpon, bull redfish and jacks in the same day! Unreal experience we will never forget! We’ll be back.
“We loved our experience with Southeastern Angling and couldn’t have asked for a better fishing trip.”
I booked a tarpon trip with Captain Rob in July and couldn’t have been more satisfied with our charter. Captain Rob was very experienced and knew exactly where the fish would be. He is a great guy dedicated to helping you catch the fish you are looking for, and in our case accomplishing the dream of catching a huge tarpon! We loved our experience with Southeastern Angling and couldn’t have asked for a better fishing trip.
“Both my 10 year old son and my 7 year old daughter had a wonderful time. Plenty of fish to be caught and boated.”
Great time on the water for a kids fish. Both my 10 year old son and my 7 year old daughter had a wonderful time. Plenty of fish to be caught and boated. Knowledgeable guide not only about the water but about the species and were more than willing to educate the kids. Plenty of fish caught too. Will definitely be coming back again!
“It was an incredible rush to fight fish constantly for three hours.”
My son and I fished with Rob for two days in mid October 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.
“Right off the bat we hooked a couple of big Tarpon who put on an air show.”
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.
“Scott was very professional and very patient with two rather inexperienced anglers.”
I took my son (10) out for a two hour trip with Captain Scott. It was my sons first time out and he had a great time! Scott was very professional and very patient with two rather inexperienced anglers. We caught whiting, sharks and sting rays! We will go out for a day trip next year! Thanks for a great afternoon!!!!
“Took my family and another on a family fishing trip and caught a bunch of sharks, stink rays and whitening!”
We had a great time with Rob and Scott! Took my family and another on a family fishing trip and caught a bunch of sharks, stink rays and whitening! Such a great time for our families!
“The kids caught a lot of different fish and rays.”
I booked the kids 3 hour fishing trip with Capt Rob and he was AWESOME!!! My kids 12 and 10, enjoyed the trip very much. Capt Rob was great with them. The kids caught a lot of different fish and rays. It was exciting to see what was on the end of the line. We couldn’t have asked for a better trip. We will definitely be booking with Capt Rob again.
“We did inshore fishing and caught plenty of fish.”
We had a great time. Rob was very professional and knowledgeable. We did inshore fishing and caught plenty of fish.
“Both Rob and Scott have a great knowledge of the tides, seasons and secret spots where the fish should be at the right time of the year.”
I’ve been fishing with Scott and Rob for the last 8 years and have always been thrilled with the service and professionalism they both provide. Both Rob and Scott have a great knowledge of the tides, seasons and secret spots where the fish should be at the right time of the year. I just finished a trip with Rob last week with my 11 year old daughter Ansley, and I couldn’t ask for anything more. Rob did an awesome job working with Ansley and had her throwing trout floats in no time at all. Thanks guys for always doing your best to make sure the trips are a success.
“Captain Scott is by far the most knowledgeable guide I have ever had the pleasure of fishing with.”
Captain Scott is by far the most knowledgeable guide I have ever had the pleasure of fishing with. I’ve fished with him multiple times and he’s made each experience memorable. He’s excellent with experienced anglers as well as beginners. Each time I’ve fished with him has been an opportunity to better my skills as an angler. I highly recommend Southeastern Angling to fishermen of all levels. Always a great time.
“He always puts us on the fish as well as teaches everyone on board what to do and how to be a better fisherman.”
I have been fishing with Scott for 6 years or more . He always puts us on the fish as well as teaches everyone on board what to do and how to be a better fisherman. My son caught his first tarpon at 10 years old, Scott took the time to show him how to fight that great fish as well as tag the tarpon at the end of the battle. Tarpon was the only fish I wanted to target until Scott talked me into redfish, jacks and triple tail, now I ask him what we should target because I love them all. My wife and I just returned from another great trip with my friend Scott (her first on the big pond) and she is hooked for life. Many tripletail came to the boat that day, and Scott taught her how to get them there. Thanks my friend, anyone who wants a quality fishing trip give Scott a call. I promise you will not be disappointed.
“Scott is one of the most professional guides I have had the pleasure to fish with in many years.”
Scott is one of the most professional guides I have had the pleasure to fish with in many years. He is patient and a great teacher. His passion for the sport, the fish, and his job comes through in every trip. He just recently guided me to my first redfish on a fly after two disaster trips with another local guide. Scott is the real deal and do not settle for less than the best. I will not use anyone else on any future trips to the Golden Isles.
