Owner

Captain Judy Helmey

More than fifty years ago my father started the very first professional fishing charter boat company in Coastal Savannah Georgia. The name may have changed to Miss Judy Charters, but the service is still as great! It’s hard to believe that I have been chartering trips for over forty years myself! I’m proud to say that our company is currently hosting its third generation of anglers. Many of the anglers we now take aboard, are the children or grandchildren! – Of people Daddy took so many years ago. As always, I’d like to thank all of you for your continued support.

We had an amazing in-land trip with Captain Garrett Ross. We had a party of 6 (2 adults and 4 kids ages 16-7. One who is neurodiverse). Boat/gear - Everything was well kept and we all had enough space to be comfortable. Captain Garrett gave the kids a great lesson on how to properly hold the pole and reel in the catch. Captain - Captain Garret Ross was phenomenal! He was very personable to the kids and we had great adult conversation too! He told some history of the Georgia coastline and facts about the marshes. Could not recommend a better Captain and person to spend the day with. Overall- Memories were made!!! We caught a variety of fish (and let some go accidentally), a few sharks, and saw some sea turtles and dolphins. As parents, we could not have had a better day on the water!

WOWZA!! This was PHENOMENAL!!! We had such a fantastic time with Captain Phil. Great guy to talk to and incredibly knowledgeable about the area for fishing and other things to do. We had fun- caught trout, a couple of stingrays, and a clump of oysters. It was a great experience!! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!

Was an absolute pleasure to fish with Jake Ross. Everyone on Miss Judys team was incredibly hospitable. We were a very diverse group, with myself a very experienced fisherman, two young beginner fishermen and one young 70 year old veteran. Some how, Jake was able to keep 3 float lines untangled in 25 mph wind (against the current) while also keeping the boat in position for me to throw artificial around. The bite was extremely tough (for all 20 boats we talked too today), but we got fish in the boat and 2 were VERY nice fish. Cpt. Ross also without hesitation fished well over the time we paid for (never even mentioned it), and I fully believe he would have not left without us getting some meat in the box, felt our time and money were greatly valued. 10/10 recommend, for anyone. I have never even left a review before, but after fishing with 100+ people and countless charters/fishing trips this one stood out, they got something special going here! Also, this was Memorial Day, so you can imagine the boat traffic we delt with.

Easily the best charter experience I've ever had. Went out with Captain Garrett, after a terrible charter experience the previous day. Garrett was knowledgeable, patient, and easy-going. We had some trouble finding the fish early on, but then we went to one of his spots and it was fish after fish. After we caught our limit and released some, he even caught us some shrimp to take home with the cast net. Thank you Miss Judy and Garrett for the experience of a lifetime!

We had a great day on the water this past weekend with Captain Kevin. It was a picture-perfect day, and we enjoyed a relaxing and scenic boat ride to an active honey hole for redfish. My husband, teenaged son and daughter, and I all caught the most beautiful redfish. We enjoyed some of our catch at Flying Fish and made a delicious Sunday supper with the remainder. Kevin was fun to be with, knowledgeable, and patient. We look forward to fishing with him agan. Thank you, Miss Judy!
