I've lived in Florida my whole life and now that i'm graduating, i'm ready to get away from all the tourists and retirees. I've always loved visiting my grandparents who live in north Georgia, but I don't think I could stand to be so far away from the water. Are there any small southern fishing towns on the coast in Georgia? Obviously I know nothing, so I appreciate the help

You could look at St. Mary's, Kingsland, Darien, Brunswick, Richmond Hill, Savannah, Tybee Island, St. Simon's Island. The first three, however, are smaller and less populated. Savannah and Brunswick are decent-sized cities, while Richmond Hill is more or less a suburb of Savannah. Tybee and St. Simon's Island are more touristy and busy. There may be other quality of life factors that you'd need to consider. I also am unaware of just how good the "fishing" atmosphere is in those small towns.

That covers it very well, S&SF. I am particularly fond of Darien, a town that counts fishing as one of its' biggest pastimes.
