Captain Scott Dykes offers light tackle and fly-fishing charters off the Georgia coast in Shellman Bluff. With more than 100 miles of coastline and nearly 400,000 acres of salt marsh, the Georgia coast offers extraordinary angling opportunities year-round. Whether it's chasing huge schools of tarpon just off the beaches or sight casting to a tailing redfish in the flooded spartina grass, this pristine area can provide light tackle and fly fishing at its finest. Experienced fly anglers or those interested in trying it for the first time are welcome on his Hell's Bay Professional skiff, which is perfect for stalking the shallow flats.
