The fishing season is here and our offshore and inshore charter boats are ready to serve you and your family.
We give you the information you will need so you can choose the right kind of charter for your group, friends or family. When you choose boats that are members of the cooperative, you will be in touch with a charter boat that will give you the service you desire while putting you on the fish.
Back Bay fishing has become very popular over the past six years and we are seeing more guides arrive daily.
When it comes to deep sea fishing or inshore fishing on Alabama's Gulf Coast, we are just like you. Great Customer Service, Professional Friendly Crew, Clean and Well Maintained Boats are a few of the best reasons people like you, choose us. Alabama is famous for it's artificial reef system that covers over 1200 square miles of the Gulf of Mexico. The coastal Alabama area south of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores is mostly shallow and has a muddy or sandy hard bottom. The oil rigs you see off of Alabama's Coast are in what we call shallow water and hold some fish around them. Inshore Fishing - is best described as fishing in bays, coves, channels, near jetties, underneath bridge pilings or near inshore artificial reefs. With us, you skip the middle man and go direct to the person who will be taking your reservation. Fighting a monster Mangrove Snapper while deep sea fishing on the Distraction Charter Boat.
Let me first tell you that I hate hunting, bass fishing and anything else that requires you to be quiet, still or wait for unbearable periods of time. We are no strangers to deep sea fishing as we take our center console boat out fishing with the kids. Did I mention that I got a nap and hot shower before we returned to the Orange Beach Al marina? If you are looking for a kick-butt Orange Beach fishing charter, then check out Annie Girl. That’s a gorgeous boat and I never knew fishing could be so much fun… I should give deep sea fishing a go then!

The Miss E: A 65 foot Bonner Walk-On Boat set up for an affordable, yet once-in-a-lifetime fishing experience. Whether you are wanting to catch Sheepshead, Speckled Trout, Redfish, or Floudner we are the Alabama Gulf Coasts premier inshore fishing and guide service to make it happen.
Most people work from 8 to 5 Monday through Friday and the typical traditional workday is around eight hours.
A great way to spend some time while on spring break is to go deep sea fishing with the family.
If I had to pick one thing that really stood out in the 2014 season it would have to be weather, Cobia the influx of the large Vermillion Snapper that blessed us all year.
The king mackerel were a little late showing up this year as I would imagine it had a lot to do with the significant amounts of rain that we've battled this spring. We have some openings left for July so if you're thinking about a trip bring your family now and let them share the experience with you while the seas are calm and the fish are biting! Gag grouper will open July 1 and will make for lots of fun on the full day trips as we get to participate in a sure enough grouper fishery.
In August, amberjack will re-open a long with the afore mentioned species above and you will get to do some of the most premier fishing that we have to offer.
July through early December is absolutely my most favorite time of year to fish offshore as the yellowfin and blackfin tuna like a strong showing. I have been updating almost daily our Facebook page with 20 to 30 photographs per trip as opposed to a full-blown written fishing report. A couple of times a week I also updated my blog with pertinent fishing information and random fishing reports, as the weather will allow. Fishing over the last month has been really good from big yellowfin tuna to small lure tickling mackerels.
Four hour trolling trips: We have not run any four hours this year due to the absence of any king or spanish mackerel to be caught, with any consistency. Six-hour half day fishing trips: These trips have consistently been the most popular trip that we run for families looking for a good time.
On the full day fishing charters we have had good luck with some nice triggerfish, Vermillion snapper, and Amber jacks. Overnight deep sea fishing charters: As many of you may know, we have always ran a lot of overnight deep sea fishing charters. If you were looking for a new charter fishing vessel to help entertain your family or group of anglers please consider us as we have been around for over 20 years and will be glad to share our friendly and knowledgeable expertise with you.
Over the past month we have enjoyed some of the finest offshore overnight tuna fishing trips we have had in a long time. The offshore deep sea fishing - started off really good with fish in close around the Ram Powell. Bottom deep sea fishing trips - we have ran a good many six hour charters this spring and have done very well with triggerfish, Vermillion snapper and white snapper.
Over the past several weeks we have enjoyed a very successful Spring Break as many people have visited the Alabama Gulf Coast on vacation. Four hour deep sea fishing trips - these trips are starting to become more and more productive every day as the water temperature and air warms up. Six hour deep sea fishing trips - as always these are our most popular trips throughout the course of the entire fishing year.
Full day deep sea fishing trips - as always these trips are highly successful and you should expect to catch some big fish like Amberjack, Scamp, Red Grouper, Vermilion Snapper, Triggerfish and even possibly a big Wahoo or King Mackerel on a high-speed troller as we go in and out to the fishing grounds. Overnight trips - are always the most productive trip that we offer and are just now beginning to get really good offshore. As always we are available for Charter most every day with the exception of a few sacred holidays.
The Intimidator Deep Sea Sportfishing Charter Boat and the Charter Boat Distraction are located at the Orange Beach Marina.A  Though we boast Gulf Shores fishing, our address is 27075 Marina Road, Orange Beach, AL.
After you turn into the Orange Beach Marina, turn right and park in the largest parking lot. This is what you will see (above) when you leave the parking lot and start walking to the west toward the dock store and charter boats.
When you are on the left side of the Orange Beach Marina Dock Store, the boats will be on the left, down this dock, facing west. This is the fish cleaning station that is located just before the dock store on the left side of the walkway. Undertaker is a 42′ custom sportfisherman charter boat that can fish up to six passengers for Gulf of Mexico fishing or cruises.


We also tell you with everything you need to know about deciding on which type of saltwater fishing charter is best for you, your family and budget. We help first timers, seasoned anglers and families, discover and experience charter fishing in Orange Beach by cutting out the middle man or charter booking office that takes a 15% cut off the top of the boat owners fee.
Deep sea fishing consists of either staying close to shore and trolling or heading farther out to the reefs where you drop your lines to the bottom in hopes of catching a big one.
The most common deep sea fishing trips are 6 hours and most boats offer two trips or more every day. We are parents, grandparents and because of that, we understand what you are looking for when it comes to getting good service and finding value added services. We give you up to date information about deep sea, inshore and sport fishing on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Until these man made reefs were built and better navigation aids were available, fishing for fin fish species like Shark, Red Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, trigger fish, lane snapper, porgy, vermilion snapper, red porgy (white snapper)and cobia was almost unheard of.
Seven miles offshore you get to about 70 feet deep and 20 miles offshore, you are only in about 100 to 110 feet of water.
Deep sea fishing is usually broken down into two sub categories of trolling or bottom fishing. Most inshore fishing is done by using light tackle or spinning rods with 6 to 20 pound test.
Unlike some marina charter booking offices and similar charters require half the money up front, our charter boats do not charge deposits on day trips or less. Try our easy to use online booking process and stop worrying about trying find the right one for you. It is a ton of fun & Orange Beach has some of the best bottom fishing in the United States !
As the travel blog name indicates, Tamala and her brood prefer luxury family travel and five star hotels.
This fully equipped offshore sport fishing boat is located in San Roc Cay Marina in Orange Beach, Alabama. Our friendly and professional captain and crew have the unparalleled experience and skills to locate the quality fish and ensure that our guests are reeling em in.   If the fish are biting in Orange Beach, Sea Hunter Charters will find them. We have had some of the prettiest days of the year and some of the most rain filled days you could ever want to see.
So far we have had a mild winter with some really beautiful days which is giving everyone the itch to go fishing, including us. Red snapper season 2013 has been good and we look forward to the last couple of weeks of the season which will be on Friday, June 28. Available fish to be caught on a full-day charter are gag grouper, scamp, red grouper, yellow edge grouper and tilefish. Please be sure to follow along, and please offer me some feedback on the photographs versus fishing reports or any other suggestions that you may have.
However, over the last week the mackerels have showed up and those boats staying near shore have done quite well.
We have had some very good catches this year and fully expect that trend to continue with snapper season starting in just a few weeks.
These trips last week, have really allowed us to showcase our ability to produce high-quality trips for you. As proof of what we have done, please make sure to read our fishing reports, you should be quite amazed. On the longer overnight trips we have done surprisingly well with big scamps and red groupers. I would render a guess that it is only due to all of the late-season cold fronts that have roared through and the fact that the water temperature has remained fairly low for this time of year. We appreciate those of you who took the time to enjoy your fishing trip with us and hope that those of you considering an offshore fishing trip will give us a shot. As of this past Sunday the Spanish Mackerel have showed up and have become fairly consistent as we are Cobia fishing. Over the past several weeks we have had tremendous success with Vermilion Snapper, White Snapper and a few Triggerfish. The Wahoo and Black Fin Tuna bite is very consistent and the Yellow Fin Tunas are starting to show up in good numbers. If you're considering a deep-sea fishing trip and don't know where to begin, give me a call, we book hundreds of fishing trips a year and we can take all of the uncertainties from your mind regarding booking a deep-sea fishing trip.
We put you in direct contact with some of the most professional Orange Beach charter guides and captains on the entire Alabama Gulf Coast and let you choose which fishing trip is best for you. The fishing charters and guides listed on this site are forward thinkers and are members of the Orange Beach Charter Fishing Cooperative. With so much fishing pressure in Orange Beach, the fish supply does not last long and you might not catch many fish if you decided to save a few bucks and fish with a guide who stays close.
Whenever we go somewhere and want to experience an activity or find a good restaurant, we rely on reviews from third party trusted sites. We answer your questions about saltwater fishing and chartering a boat, so you will know what to expect when you arrive. The Gulf Shores area, all the way to Fort Morgan and Dauphin Island have long been known for their great King Mackerel and Spanish Mackerel fishing. There are some reefs that were built closer to shore that hold reef fish like red snapper, grouper and amberjack, but they see a lot of fishing pressure and are often hard to get a bite. I will take the next few paragraphs and break them down for you and will give you a simplified explanation of each. Trolling is where the boat keeps moving and anglers drag lines with baits behind the boat waiting for a fish to strike. The best inshore fishermen fish for Speckled Trout, Flounder, Red Drum (Redfish), Black Drum, White Trout, Pompano, Sheep Head, Lady Fish and Tripletail (Blackfish).
Having to pay 50% of the price of the trip up front is common in the charter fishing industry, but we prefer to handle our reservations similar to the way a hotel does. We were lucky enough to be invited for a 12 hr off-shore fishing trip on Annie Girl, a 63 ft fishing machine. Music is pumping throughout the boat, no one is quiet, and occasionally someone breaks out into spontaneous dance. I only put up with it for one week a year to take the kids snow skiing, and even then I will only go spring skiing. Regardless of what you call them they the goto fish that help make up some nice catches and always make for some awesome fare.
During the late summer fall to the early winter time we will average about two overnight trips a week.
From giant yellowfin tuna to some of the prettiest scamp fishing we have had in a long time, these trips continue to get better and better. The blue water has been in really close too, and we have seen some scattered grass and some flying fish. However, this will quickly improve as we have had a predominant Southeast wind flow over the last couple of weeks. This is a good time of year to book and economical trip and have the possibility of catching a big Cobia which has to be 33 inches overall length to keep.


However, being able to add a little bit of Spanish Mackerel trolling on top of the really good bottom fishing will make for an even more enjoyable trip this time of year.
If you mix in some bottom fishing with some of the afore mentioned reef fish species you will quickly realize the level of success available to you on an Overnight Fishing Trip. We offer solutions for those who want to escape ordinary and fish with some of the highliners in the charter fishing world.
They have a proven track record of providing excellent customer service and quality fishing trips for first timers, families, kids and active seniors. If your tight on money or don't want to invest a lot in your first time deep sea fishing, we have a party boat that we can refer you to.
We have all seen those form letters where only the names are different, but the reviews over exaggerate the service.
We also share definitions commonly used by anglers and guides in our area so you will know what we are talking about. When we were kids growing up, most of the fishing we did along the Alabama Gulf Coast was near shore trolling for these two species of pelagic fish (migratory - non reef fish). However, if you take a 6 hour deep sea fishing trip, you have enough time to get far enough offshore to where the fishing pressure is less and the fishing is better. If you want to go after blue marlin, yellowfin tuna, mahi mahi (dorado) or Wahoo, you need to go at least 60 to 120 miles offshore to where the deep water oil rigs are located. Besides, coming up with that kind of money to secure your trip puts a burden on those who have not budgeted for the experience. I am not certain where all of the big beeliners came from this year but I'm sure glad they were here, especially with some of the closed seasons that we had to work around. If you have ever considered a overnight trip this is your opportunity to have a memorable action-packed offshore adventure.
There is only good times and quality fishing trips in an environment that families feel comfortable with. The deckhands on these trips are there right beside you at all times and take care of your every need. We have also simplified the process of finding the best charter and ultimately, booking a fishing trip. As fish finding technology improved, we were able to build artificial reefs were able to re-locate them each trip in order to make bottom fishing relatively easy and have some consistency to it.
To get out there, you need to take an over night fishing charter to a two day charter to have a chance to catch these species. The request is sent to the captain and he will email you back quickly and will let you know if that date is available. The fourth and final step is submitting a reservation request so we will know what you want to do.
The most popular trip in our area during Spring Break are the half day and the full day trips. The cost of these fishing trips runs about $450 for 4 people for 4 hours and goes up from there.
The mates take time to educate and demonstrate different fishing techniques that you might not learn on a walk on or party boat trip. With us, we take customer service seriously and if at anytime you ever feel let down, we will make it right.
The cost is a little more, but our guides are not afraid to burn the fuel to get you to where the fishing pressure is less. Your deckhand is paid in the form of a tip or gratuity and that runs about 20% minimum of the price of the charter that you paid.
We are also outdoor writers who share information about fishing, fish politics and serve on many panels of the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council.
Trolling fish commonly caught off of Alabama include king mackerel, spanish mackerel, wahoo, tuna, billfish, bonito and a few more. Inshore bay fishing consists of fishing on the bottom or on the surface and anywhere in between.
You get first class service and the captain takes you to his best reefs and lets you fight some really big fish. With us, our goal is to create a good user experience and give you accurate and up to date information about fishing in Orange Beach.
When trolling, anglers are either dragging baits on the surface or below the surface of the water. In recent past, because of intense fishing pressure during peak seasons, some inshore guides have found themselves moving offshore into a big boat world and have been fishing for what was traditionally known as a deep sea fishing area.
Because of the high cost of these trips and the difficulty in booking a multi-day trip if someone cancels at the last minute, a 50% deposit is required.
As mentioned above, our fishing guides offer some of the best service in the world and have the reputation of being responsible, accountable and professional at all times with your family. We live and breath on customer reviews and feedback from our past guests in order to grow our business each year. One big difference is our inshore guide moves his operation to Mobile Bay whenever the fishing gets tough in Orange Beach.
The areas we mostly troll are right off the beach, all the way out to depths of over 5,000 feet and anywhere in between. This fishing site's success depends on us giving you, exactly what you expect from the information provided about your fishing trip. Bottom Fishing is when the captain navigates and takes you out to a GPS location where artificial or natural reefs are located. He holds the boat still or anchors while you bait your hooks, stand on the edge of the boat and drop your lines beneath the surface of the water toward the bottom (hence bottom fishing).
A captain running his own charter boat is important because you know what type of service you can expect from him. Anglers mostly fish on the bottom, but in recent years reef fish populations have recovered so you can often catch reef fish just beneath the surface or high in the column of water. Vessel owners and captains, have a vested interest in ensuring you get a fishing charter that lives up to their reputation. The artificial reefs you are fishing on, are either public (built with public money) or they are private (built by the captain or boat owner). Everyone who has access to the water can easily find the published GPS waypoints and go fish the spots.
They are built by captains in order to have fish to catch when fishing is tough on public reefs.
Having a private reef to fish nearby is like having insurance so your customers or family can easily catch fish. The most common frozen bait is either Cigar Minnows, Spanish Sardine, Cut Squid or Menhaden (Pogies). For safety reasons, if you are heading offshore to go deep sea fishing, please choose a boat that has two engines.
