Family Fishing Fun for the whole family. Here at the Saint George Island and Apalach Bay we do inshore/offshore including shark fishing and floundering trips, and remote island shelling trips. I am a 4th generation Fisherman from the area and have been taught by generations down. We also specialize trips to fit you whether it’s hardcore fishing or simply a fish & fun trip for the whole family. We look forward to hearing from you.

My husband, three kids (6,4,3) and I had an amazing day with Capt John and his daughter Skylar. We spent some time fishing, then to shelling and then to watch son dolphins, but instead saw some stingrays. We recommend him 100%.

Had a great time with my college buddies out in the water. Even though the sun was hot it was worth the heat and the captain is super!

Captain John was the perfect guide for our group of mostly inexperienced anglers. He gave very clear directions in teaching us the basics and showed great patience in correcting us when needed. A fourth-generation Apalachicolan, captain John was very knowledgable on both the area and...More
