Dont waste your time or money with any other fishing charter on St. Simmons/Jekyll Island. Captain Scott and Captain Rob of Southeastern Angling are the real deal. They are highly experienced and extreamly knowledgeable in both conventional tackle and fly fishing techniques. As long as...More

Capt Scott was awesome on our trip with my cousin and me. It was his first live bait Tarpon trip of the season and we snagged an 85lb fighter who showed his acrobatic skills. We hooked another beauty but he spat the hook. In addition...More
