4 Truths about Alabama Charter Fishing
Gulf Shores & Orange Beach
Prepare for an adrenaline-pumping, line-bowing good time on a Gulf Shores and Orange Beach charter fishing trip.
3.) Deckhands are typically paid via tips. A deckhand’s day begins long before you board the boat, usually several hours before you depart. Once the boat returns, they help clean your fish and then clean the boat. It’s a long day of work. The customary gratuity for a deckhand is 15 to 20 percent of the trip price. This does not include your fish cleaning fee, which is generally 30 cents per pound.
4.) A number of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach restaurants will cook your catch! You just spent all day reeling in the mother of all red snapper, and those arms of yours may now be too tired to prepare it yourself. That’s no problem during a vacation to Alabama’s beaches. Check out the Cook Your Catch restaurant directory for chefs who will blacken or fry and make a masterpiece out of your fresh catch.
