Offshore Deep Sea
When you go bluewater fishing in Alabama's Gulf Coast, either through a fishing charter or deep-sea fishing, you have a chance to land some of the best gamefish around, including:
  • Snapper - plentiful and great eating
  • Yellowfin tuna - popular fish to target, renowned for its flavor
  • Blackfin tuna - will take your bait deep when hooked
  • Grouper - prefers deep water near natural or manmade structures
  • Wahoo - a fast-swimming fighter
If you're in search of the trophy photo of a lifetime, blue marlin is the king of game fish and can be found in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. Its smaller leaping cousin, white marlin, is also found in the deep Gulf waters along with the tail-dancing Atlantic sailfish.

Inshore Fishing

The sun rising over the tranquil waters of the back bays offers a different and equally thrilling fishing experience. Anglers exploring the coastal bays and estuaries are likely to encounter:
  • Speckled and white trout - ferocious in attacking baits
  • Flounder - found near piers and structures
  • Redfish - prized shallow water fighting game fish
  • Mackerel - plentiful warm water coastal fish
  • Cobia/Crab eaters - migratory fish caught just off the beaches.
If you're in search of a real fishing story, go after barracuda. These are fierce fighters with teeth to match: making for a promising battle between man and fish.

Pier and Shore Fishing

For those who prefer to sit back in their beach chair and cast a line, you’ll find plenty of space and plenty of fish along our beaches. Visit the popular Gulf State Park Pier with over two thousand feet of rail space for anglers.

Charters

With a fleet of over a hundred fishing charter boats heading out into the Gulf and back bays daily, booking a fishing excursion is easy. Once aboard, experienced captains will get you to your fish and show you how to hook your trophy. Private party fishing charters and walk-on group charters are available. Bait, tackle and fishing licenses are provided as part of the fishing charter package. All you have to do is sit back and enjoy the fishing experience of a lifetime.
