Captain David Newlin Fishing Charters
Thank you for looking at my website! I am a full-time professional career boat captain. I have fished the GA coast for over 40 years. I have been in the fishing guide / charter boat business since 1979. I have fished over 4,000 days on the GA coast. I have fished the offshore and inshore waters for every fish that swims in them.
ClientsI can put together a trip to suit your fishing needs from the ocean to the river, light or heavy tackle. I have selected a small group of the most experienced fishermen on the Georgia coast to help with my charters. No fishing license is needed, and all fishing tackle is included on all trips.
Inshore fishing for trout, redfish, whiting, sheepshead, flounder, blackdrum, and tripletail are my most popular trips. I usually fish over 150 of these trips every year. We are usually fishing the uncrowded, clean waters of St. Catherine’s, Ossabow, and Sapelo Sound. These trips are usually fishing with shrimp or a variety of artificial lures. These fish can usually be caught all year. This is a good trip for all ages to have fun and bring home some fish to eat. The trout usually run from 1 to 5 pounds. The redfish will average from 1 to 20 pounds with some big reds up to 50 pounds. I am fishing a custom-built 25 foot boat with plenty of room. I will carry up to 4 fishermen per trip. During the summer months we can also combine this with a trip to a barrier island beach. The boat is equipped with new 2017 Evinrude motor, trolling motor, and quality fishing tackle.

Georgia shark fishing can be action packed fishing at it’s best. Fishing Coastal Georgia waters for different shark species from 3 footers to 1,000 lb plus Tiger Sharks. The Shark fishing starts in mid April and continues through October, catching the Black Tips and Lemon Sharks on light tackle can be a real thrill. These sharks can be caught on popping corks near the surface.
Big Black Tips are the ultimate shark fighting machine. They will make sky-rocketing leaps and sizzling runs, and are the best eating shark in the ocean. These can be caught from early April to late October.
The real big sharks, the Tigers, Duskies, Bull, and Hammer Heads are rough and tumble, heavy tackle fishing. I catch a lot of these from two hundred to five hundred lbs with the occasional monster, tiger, or hammer head showing up. This is usually 80 lb. class heavy tackle fishing. The Shark fishing can be fast and furious. Last year, on many days, we never had a ten minute break that a fish was not hooked. These Sharks usually show up from May through October. Shark trips can be 4, 6, or 8 hours. The longer trips are better, but we will catch fish on four hour trips.
