Join Captain Justin for an absolutely epic fishing trip off the shores of Dauphin Island, Alabama! This trip is aimed at the saltier fishermen who are looking to go after record-size fish in deep water....Read More
On this trip, you'll be dropping lines down hundreds of meters, chasing bites from absolute monsters including Black Grouper, Amberjack, Red Snapper, White Snapper, Vermilion Snapper, Tilefish, and Scamp. These fish grow huge at such great depths, and there's a good chance that whatever you hook on this expedition will be your new personal record!
One of the best things about deep-drop fishing is that you don't have to be "on it" all the time. Let the line play out, crack a beer, and just be ready for that rod to bend. Then, jump on that reel and strap in for a fight! You're going to be pulling up 50+ pound fish from hundreds of feet deep, so bring your A game!
You'll be fishing from a 27′ Ameracat catamaran, a fast and super stable vessel that's perfect for offshore fishing in the Gulf. She sports twin Suzuki engines with a total of 400 horsepower, and is decked out with gear and amenities to level up your fishing experience. That includes a full cabin with a restroom, trolling gear and outriggers, multimedia system, and more!
Captain Justin will provide everything you need for a blue-ribbon day, including rods, reels, bait, and tackle. All you need to bring is sunscreen, proper clothing, sunglasses, and a smile!
You can catch the Dauphin Island-Fort Morgan ferry every day except Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. Please visit https://mobilebayferry.com/schedule/ for the daily schedule and pricing.
Captain Justin and his first mate, Barry, are native islanders. Their families have fished the waters near the island for eight generations and counting. Before going into business together, Barry and Justin started fishing out of a small, 12 ft. aluminum boat that ventured out into the Gulf several times! As teenagers, they both deckhanded for charter boats until they had their own boats to fish on. Needless to say, these two know these waters (and fishing spots!) better than anyone. They made a terrific team and were some of the top producers in the charter boat community for years. These guys still fish the waters when their schedules allow, and they are raising rodeo and tournament champions themselves! The ninth generation of islanders is growing up doing what Barry and Justin love - fishing. Dauphin Island holds a special place in their hearts, and they’d love the opportunity to showcase their fishing skills and introduce you to this amazing fishery.

Amazing trip with my wife and kids (teenagers) on the last weekend of snapper season. Water was a bit choppy but clear, and the captain got us to the BEST spots within minutes. It was like speed fishing, with the first mate loading the lines with Carolina rigs as fast ...Read More as we reeled ‘em in. Definitely bring lots of cold water and wide-brimmed hats as that Alabama sun is hot, folks! Appreciate the crew’s help, kindness, and courtesy….and thank you for picking up the group at Ft Morgan…saved us the ferry ride! Will be back for sure!
