Top 5 Fishing Charters in St. Marys, Georgia
St. Marys, Georgia is a great place to go if you are looking to charter a fishing vessel. The St. Mary's River, the North River, the Crooked River and Cumberland Island are all accessible from the docks on Osborne Street in St. Marys. I've been to the docks many times and have a few suggestions on which fishing charters you should consider. Here they are:
1. Captain Ken's Fishing Expeditions
Captain Ken's Fishing Expeditions should be towards the top of your list because of his service and rates. The company will take care of securing your hotel reservations and has a full day policy that lets you off the hook for the charter service fees if you don't catch a thing. I have to warn you though. He's pretty good at hunting down the best spots for blackdrum, flounder, redfish, sheepshead and trout. The $325 price tag includes hotel accommodations, eight hours of fishing, a fishing license, use of his spinning gear and a cooler filled with ice. You may also opt to forgo the hotel accommodations and book a four hour charter for $150.
2. Fish Master Charters
Looking for a little deep sea action? Try Fish Master Charters. Captain Hupman will take you to where the sailfish, sharks, red snapper and grouper are biting. Inland fishing charters are also available. You'll have the opportunity to customize your fishing trip, so costs understandably vary.
3. Salt Grass Charters
Prefer a more hands on approach? Salt Grass Charters has two types of inshore fishing trips. The first provides you with the boat as well as the gear, a guide and fish cleaning services. The second is more for the DIY angler and includes guide service only. The DIY option costs $50 an hour.
4. Dream Cruises LLC Sailboat Charters
The Dream Cruises LLC Sailboat Charters is a veteran owned and operated business. An eight hour charter will tend to cost you $500. The price is inclusive of light refreshments, a guide and the use of the boat. You may opt to increase the price by adding more substantial meals to the itinerary.
5. Lang Charters
Do you have your sights set on kingfish, amberjack or bonita? You may want to give Lang Charters a call. A full day of snagging kingfish or offshore bottom fishing for black bass and grouper will cost you $650. The price typically includes the boat, a guide, bait, a fishing license, tackle usage and non-alcoholic beverages. The company also offers tarpon, shark, inland and jetty fishing as well.
