4 Hour Offshore Fishing Charter 1-2 Persons $750 ($50 per additional person)

A Fins and Family Fishing four hour Orange Beach state of Alabama waters offshore fishing charter is the shortest offshore fishing experience we offer and is a great introductory offshore experience. Four hour state trips do offer the potential to keep some fish for a meal but keep in mind if keeping fish is your primary goal this short trip is not the trip for you. For meat hunters we recommend a federal trip above all else followed by our six hour state waters charters.

 

All State of Alabama waters offshore charters are taken our our topless 25 foot Sea Hunt. State offshore trips will take you up to nine nautical miles offshore but not often completely out of sight of land. Four hour state waters offshore fishing charters are an excellent choice for adults and vacationing families with kids around fourteen years of age and older. Offered year around our private offshore fishing charters often include both trolling and bottom fishing for a variety of species. Our fishing locations and methods of fishing vary greatly based on the time of year, what's biting, and composition of the group aboard.

Featured mostly in afternoons only our Four Hour Hour Offshore Fishing Charters begin with an exciting ride offshore looking for Sea Turtles, Dolphins, and schools of feeding fish.  If we see fish on the surface that we are targeting we often take a detour and cast or troll through the schooling fish. If we do not see anything significant enough to alter our course on the way out we continue our run towards our reef fishing spots. Once we reach our desired fishing location we will share with your crew the fun and excitement of bottom fishing. We often focus mostly on the species that are currently in season for harvest but we also catch other amazing offshore fish in the process.

 

Spring offshore fishing can be very rewarding. Several species including Gray Triggerfish, Red Snapper often bite well in March and April. While these species are not typically legal for harvest in the spring, the are very fun to catch, photograph, and release. If keeping a few fish for dinner is part of your goal we can give it a try. The small but tasty Vermillion Snapper can sometimes be found in state waters along with late spring visitors such as Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, and the rare Cobia. Mackerel are often caught trolling, casting jigs, and free lining live shrimp. Cobia fishing often requires a bit of patience and luck but if you are fortunate enough to catch one you will surely agree it is worth the lengthy pursuit. Unique, delicious, and incredibly strong, the Cobia is our scarce top prize in springtime offshore fishing.

 

Summer marks the beginning of our busiest fishing season of the year. It also ushers in the season for the most popular fish along the northern Gulf of Mexico. Red Snapper seasons traditionally open for harvest around the first of June. Federal Red Snapper Season is open seven days a week while state of Alabama waters are most commonly only open on weekends only. While our top pursuit is Red Snapper we also catch other fish species as Triggerfish, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Bonita, Remoras, Hard Tails, and the occasional shark! 

 

Fall fishing offshore in state and waters is traditionally an extension of the bite from summer. And while some species like the Red Snapper are no longer available for harvest, we still catch lots of fish to photograph and release. Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel are among our top pursued food fish and are both open for harvest in the fall. In addition, we catch the occasional and we will still catch others such as Triggerfish to appreciate, photograph, and release. 

 

Winter offshore fishing charters can be among the best of the entire year! Catch and release species such as Red Snapper, Triggerfish, and even Amberjack come closer to shore in the winter making them easier to catch and accessible for both federal and state offshore charters. Fish that we can keep in the winter such as the occasional Vermillion Snapper also venture closer to shore and can often be caught in state waters.  While we do some trolling in winter for Redfish we focus most on bottom fishing, jigging spoons, chunking, chumming, and flat lining with baits such as squid and cigar minnows. Winter offshore fishing charters generally offer the most fishing time of any season due to shorter rides to the fish in the winter.

5 Hour Offshore Fishing Charter 1-2 Persons $850 ($50 per additional person)

Five hour State of Alabama Orange Beach offshore fishing charters can be a good choice for adults groups and families with older kids. Offered year round our private offshore fishing charters are long to enough to often include both trolling and bottom fishing for a variety of awesome saltwater species. As with our four hour offshore trips, five hour state waters offshore fishing charters are not our top recommendation for anglers whose number one goal is meat but we do frequently catch enough for dinner for a small family on these trips.

 

Both our morning and afternoon State of Alabama offshore fishing charters begin with an exciting ride offshore looking for Sea Turtles, Dolphins, and schools of feeding fish.  If we see fish on the surface that we are targeting we often take a detour and cast or troll through the schooling fish.

Once we reach our desired fishing location we will share with your crew the fun and excitement of fishing styles such as bottom fishing, fishing drift lines, jigging, knocker rigs, and more. Species we pursue vary with the conditions, the season, the bite, and the interests of the guests we have aboard.

Six hour trips give us the most fishing time therefore we can often fish more ways.

Species we pursue vary with the conditions, the season, the bite, and the goals and interests of the guests we have aboard.
