About Captain James Weeks

Captain James is a lifelong angler. Growing up in a fishing family, he learned the ropes from an early age and quickly became passionate about this way of life. He's now been fishing for 30 years and has built up an immense amount of knowledge that he loves to share with others.

Captain James Weeks is the owner and operator of Reel N' Time Fishing Charters A Clarks Hill Lake Fishing Charter, based out of Thomson Georgia. He is a licensed captain, ensuring you have a safe and productive day fishing! He has been fishing throughout Georgia since he was a boy, spending as much time on the water as humanly possible. Fishing became a passion for James, and one he decided to share with others, thus establishing his fishing guide business.


Freshwater Fishing (Crappie and Striped Bass Fishing)

He has perfected his techniques for freshwater fishing, crappie, and striped bass fishing. He has prefect several styles of fishing long lining , pushing, live scoping and down roding . All of which can be very productive. 

In addition to down-rod fishing, Captain James also engages heavily in bottom fishing and trolling. Bottom fishing entails dropping your bait to the bottom of a lake or riverbed while trolling consists of dragging lures through deeper waters while following boats slowly forward. 

Most Suitable Guests:

Captain James loves taking large groups of families and friends out on the water, as he finds it brings people together and creates unforgettable memories. His passion for fishing is evident in his enthusiasm when teaching all anglers the basics of catching fish. 

What makes Captain James truly special is his patience with kids and beginners. He always takes extra care to make sure everyone feels comfortable in the boat and can understand all the techniques involved in catching fish. His gentle but firm approach means even those who are new to fishing can relax while they learn how it’s done. He often takes some extra time to show kids how things work, helping them build confidence and have fun during their trip

Fish Species You Can Expect:

He always had a fascination with two species of fish: striped bass and crappie. Not only are these two types of fish plentiful in the region where he fishes, but they also provide an exciting challenge to anglers who target them. 

The striped bass is a species that can grow fairly large, making it a favorite among those who enjoy catching bigger fish. It is known for its aggressiveness when attacking bait or lures and this often makes it easier to catch than some other species. As for the crappie, its smaller size makes it suitable for even novice anglers but experienced anglers know that this species requires finesse to land successfully. 

For Captain James, targeting striped bass and crappie has become second nature over time as he continues to refine his techniques for landing these popular sportfish.
