Georgia’s unique geography offers fishermen a variety of different options. From coastline fishing in the southeast where species include bluefish, grouper, cobia, amberjack, red snapper, black sea bass, spotted sea trout, red drum, and flounder; to the trout-filled mountain streams in the northeast. Other freshwater species include bass, catfish, crappie, pickerel, shad, and walleye. Georgia’s marshlands are excellent places for those looking to gather clams and oysters.
