Numerous charter boats also offer reasonably priced, four-hour trolling trips for Spanish, kings, and bonito. You might get lucky and hook into a bull redfish that will strip drag and test your tackle.
Heading farther into the Gulf’s offshore waters, Alabama’s beaches offer some of the best charter fishing on the Gulf of Mexico and will head out 15 to 30 miles to fish for reef species in Alabama’s vast and unmatched artificial reef zone that covers more than 1,000 square miles. Depending on the season, the target species could be Alabama’s iconic red snapper, amberjack, triggerfish, and vermilion snapper. Alabama’s charter fleet has vessels, called six-packs, that accommodate six anglers or larger boats that carry more than 20. Several head boats offer walk-on day trips to catch reef fish species.
