About Your Trip

This time of year, snapper are only available on the weekends, thus this trip is only offered Friday to Monday. On this 5-hour adventure, you will be targeting the elusive and delicious Red Snapper. You will climb aboard Captain Patrick's 25-foot Epic equipped with a 225 HP Suzuki, and with a brand-new Simrad NSX bottom machine, you'll be right on the fish from the minute you leave the dock!

When snapper season is in, there
is only one place you will find Captain Patrick, and that's over the wrecks, rigs, and reefs around Gulf Shores. Parked above the reefs, rigs, and wrecks Captain Patrick will chum up the water to get the snapper up off the reef and a little higher in the water column. Then you will drop some cut bait down on them and hope the biggest one hammers your hook. Get ready for a fight when it does!

Captain Patrick will provide all rods, reels, tackle, lures, and live bait. All you need to bring is food and drinks for the day, a hat, and sunscreen. He will clean and fillet your day’s catch at the end of the trip, so make sure you bring a cooler to take it home.

Captain Patrick is a great example of how a life-long passion for fishing can turn into a full-time job. He spent every moment he could spare on the water and in 2010 he became a professional angler. Captain Patrick won several tournaments including the Dauphin Island Rodeo and Gulf Coast Slam in the Flounder and Speckled Trout category. These days, he loves running charters and meeting new people!

What do you want for Christmas this year?
Check back with me in September.
How did you get started guiding?
I was a offshore deckhand for 5 years and got tired of getting beat up offshore so i started fishing tournaments and realized i was a good inshore fisherman so i started guiding.
What makes you different from other guides?
My brutal honesty… to elaborate, I’m not going to take someone just to earn a paycheck. I want each group to have the best time possible on the water, and if that means the day we are scheduled for isn’t fishable and i have to cram more trips into another day I’d rather work longer than take someone out to just earn a paycheck. On rough days when explaining this to customers i use the phrase “ if you just want to get beat up, i can take you to the parking lot with a baseball bat, and you’ll feel the same but save your money….. OR if you REALLY want to go I’ll take you but it’s not going to be fun” …

We vet our guides to make sure they are the best of the best. We want guides who not only put you on 'em, but show you a great time, keep you safe, and give you a memorable experience with your group.
Once you've paid your deposit at checkout, we'll send you a boarding pass. Just show your guide your boarding pass on the day of the trip, they'll scan it, the remaining balance will transfer automatically, and you'll be all set to get out there. Just make sure you bring a cash tip for the guide!
In the case of inclement weather, our guides will make the call and we'll work with you to reschedule your trip or issue a credit for the full deposit of the trip to be used on any of our trips across the country. Your safety is our top concern.
Each trip’s price is set by the guide and factors in all of their costs. A big determinant of cost is often the type of boat and associated fuel costs, but other guide costs include leases, marina / slip fees, bait costs, and the cost to provide and maintain all of the gear you’ll need on your trip.
Once you book the trip, we will connect you directly with the guide to go over any additional details. In the meantime, our team is always available to answer your questions via email, text, chat, or call!
