Our inshore fishing yields flounder, sea trout and red drum, and our docks and piers are good places to find black drum and sheepshead! Want to visit some of these spots? We’ve gathered six of them for you. Check them out below, and don’t forget to bring your bait and tackle!

Afterwards, y’all can enjoy lunch at the screened-in picnic tables. Eve Park makes a great spot to bring the entire family for a day on the coast!
Before you go fishing in Liberty County, make sure you’re properly licensed. Check the Georgia Department of National Resources website and click on the tab licenses and permits to help you stay on track. We also suggest that you check the tides before heading out to ensure that you get the best haul possible. Tides Near Me is a great app to use!
Get outdoors and #ExploreLiberty with your rod and reel, but be sure to bring plenty of bug spray, water and sunscreen! Most of these places don’t have a convenience store right around the corner, so you’ll want to be prepared.
