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.

Inshore Fishing Trips
Fishing the clean uncrowded waters of St. Catherine’s, Ossabow, and Sapelo Sound areas of Coastal Georgia. We usually target trout, redfish, sheepshead, and flounder. We also catch a variety of fish including blackdrum, whiting, sharks, weakfish. During the summer months, we also catch tripletail.The area I fish is beautiful, undeveloped water. Many days we won’t see another boat all day. Usually we are fishing with spinning rods and shrimp or a variety of artificial lures. This is simple fishing that anyone can do.
This is a year-round fishery; we catch fish all year. Our main fish are trout and redfish. The trout run from 1-5 pounds and can be caught year-round. The better months are usually April thru December. Our redfish run from 1 pound to 50 pound monsters. We catch a lot 10 to 25 pound reds with an occasional monster over 30 pounds. Most of the redfish are caught on live shrimp. When we target the big redfish, it is usually on the bottom with cut fish. The time to target the big fish is August through January; we will occasionally catch big ones all year. Check out big redfish picture in our gallery.This is an easy trip that anybody young or old will enjoy. We have many daily encounters with dolphin, eagles, alligators, manatees, and a huge variety of shore birds.
I provide all bait, license, tackle, everything we need to catch fish. You need to bring sunscreen, food, and drinks. I would suggest on longer trips to bring a raincoat.
I can customize these trips to meet your particular needs. Call me at 912-756-4573, and we can make plans to suit any needs you have. During the summer months, we can also combine fishing trips with trips to barrier island beaches. We have miles of empty beautiful beaches. These are great places to wade, pick up shells, or just kick back for a while. If you want to bring your own tackle, I recommend a 7 to 8.5 foot rod with 40 pound braided line.
Call me at 912-756-4573 if you have any more questions. Also available, fly fishing for Redfish, Sharks and Tarpon. A day on the water of Coastal Georgia is always an enjoyable outing.
