The Captain's Experience:
Born in the mid 60’s and raised in the Golden Isles of Georgia, Captain Brian Leverette has extensive experience in
both inshore and offshore fishing. While in his late teens his enthusiasm for inshore fishing truly emerged when he
was the caretaker of Little St. Simons Island a privately owned barrier island where he lived and worked. After his
daily “chores” were complete, he would explore the beaches, marshes and maze of saltwater creeks searching well
into the evening for what was biting. Wade fishing for Tarpon around the beach inlets was his main target mid to late
summer. During his tenure on the island he had the opportunity to meet and learn from a local fishing guide and he shared his knowledge and skills with the young soon to be captain and this is when his life goals were set, becoming a professional guide and sharing the experience of Coastal Georgia Fishing. Since this time the blue water has also beckoned and he has competed in numerous offshore saltwater tournaments both at the professional and local levels. Fishing in the SKA/Yamaha Professional Tour took him to ports all along the East and Gulf Coasts, from North Carolina, all the way to Louisiana with stops just about everywhere between. Chasing King Mackerel is a team sport and his team consistently held a top 5 place in the world rankings to include division and series championships. While offshore fishing and the tournament trail will always hold a special place in his heart, Capt Brian is an inshore fisherman to his core and enjoys nothing more than enticing a spotted sea trout to take an offering.
His passion for fishing and especially
Georgia inshore fishing:
What sets Captain Brian apart is his
incredible passion for fishing of any
sort. He’s just as happy dunking a
worm in the local bream pond as he
is fighting a 60 lb. Wahoo well off the
location. Ever since he was a child,
Captain Brian has had a love for
fishing and often found time to pursue
his passion that his parents and/or
teachers didn’t always appreciate.
Nothing gives him more satisfaction
than connecting customers with huge
varieties of fish. In fact, he derives
more pleasure watching clients catch
fish than when he himself does! He
loves to share his fishing experiences with people in the hope that they can find even a fraction of the joy that it brings to his life. Captain Brian takes his role as captain seriously (safety is paramount) and it is his love of his job which makes our charter fishing trips even more memorable.
Why the Golden Isles?
Captain Brian has fished many fisheries on the East Coast and around the Gulf of Mexico including Savannah, Hilton Head, Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Canaveral, Jensen Beach, Key West, Tampa, Biloxi, Venice, Fourchon and many others. He will tell you “out of all these great fisheries the vast marshes of Georgia offer the most diverse year around opportunity”.
