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.

We loved our trip despite the rough waters. A few didn’t feel well but stuck it out! Jay and Gage did a great job taking care of us and getting us to some great red snappers! What an experience! I look forward to going again!!

What a day! Met and surpassed expectations. We felt like we had known Captain Gage & Jay from the time we set foot on the boat. Made memories and caught fish we will remember for a lifetime. Can’t wait until the next trip!!!!

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 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!

Contacted them start of the week about a possible trip and wanted to spend some time with my son. By Tuesday they had a walk on trip set for Friday. Crew was great, super helpful and made sure not only myself but 6 year old son had fun. Will use again when we need a charter.
