Get the best out of your Gulf Shores fishing trip by understanding the type of charter boat you will need for the experience you want.
The Alabama Gulf Coast not only has the most beautiful sugar-sand beaches, but Gulf Shores and Orange Beach has one of the best charter-fishing fleets that can take you on a fishing trip you’ll remember forever.
More than 100 Gulf Shores & Orange Beach fishing charters are available to book on the Alabama coast for a trip for various species. These include red snapper, triggerfish, amberjack, the mackerel species, and offshore species like blue marlin, sailfish, yellowfin tuna and wahoo. However, not all of those species are available year-round, as many vary by season.
When you get ready for your visit to the Alabama Gulf Coast, make a list of questions to ask the charter boat you choose, and try to book directly with the charter boats. If you go through a booking agent online, the charters must pay a significant fee, and that money goes to companies outside the U.S.
