trip description for Gulf Shores Adventure in Gulf Shores

Data-Girl is a 35 foot Cabo Express (sport fisher) with twin 500 horse power caterpillar engines. She is the fastest of the sport fisher charter boats in the area. She is fast and comfortable with plenty shade from the sun, and full head (restroom), airconditioned forward room, and kitchen area. She is fast enough to still do 6 hour (half day) trips, but shines on the 8, 10, and 12 hour trips. 6 hour trips in the morning and afternoon we expect to get a limit of snapper with a few large snapper. Because of the limited time we are not able to jump around and be focused on keeping only the largest trophy type fish. We also catch other fish while we work through getting the limit but this is a fast focused fishing trip, with the all the creature comforts. She is ideal for families and groups needing the full restroom, however she is not as economical because of the fuel used to move the much bigger boat at a fast speed. 8, 10, and 12 hour trips are where Data-Girl shines. She is fast enough to get out to the big fish yet bring comfort along for the ride!! These are the captain’s favorite trips as it allows time to target bigger fish for the box as well as other species of fish. These trips give you time to fish and enjoy the day just soaking up the deep sea adventure. We normally focus on getting a limit of big snapper while mixing in grouper and other off shore species depending on what is migrating through at that time. The captain is normally tuned in on what has the highest probability of keeping the excitement rolling. The best part of the full day trips is there is time to work on big fish and enjoy just being on the water. With plenty shade to take a break, have some lunch, or continue to catch fish like you are mad at them!!!! We ask you bring on wipe sunscreen rather than spray on as the spray gets the floor slick and makes the deck more hazardous. All you need to bring is drinks, snacks, and a camera for pictures. The captain and deck hand make sure your day is safe, fun, and full of fish catching experience. The deck hand works hard to keep you baited up, rigged up, catching fish, and keeping you comfortable. When we arrive back at the dock the crew will clean and bag your fish for you to take and enjoy. It is customary to tip the deck hand 10-20%. The captain will be calling or texting you to connect a day or so before the trip to answer any questions and make sure everyone knows where and when to meet up. There are plenty fish in the ocean, it is just about knowing where and how to catch them, and having fun doing it!!!! Read More

trip description for Offshore Center Console in Gulf Shores

Minutes of Use is a 31 foot center console (cape horn) with twin 300 horse power Suzuki engines. The boat name is sometimes confusing since it also the name of the charter company. She is a no-frills fishing boat we used as a personal tournament fishing boat for years before we started the charter business. She is fast and economical with a large fishing deck. The down side is that she has limited shade and a portable head. We ride on bean bags, which are very comfortable, on the trip out and back in to the dock. This boat is what most of the fishing charters in the area use because they are fast and the most economical. They are perfect for 4-6 hour trips because of the speed and versatility, and the very large fishing area that allows people to spread out while they fish. With 6 fishermen it is not crowded and all 6 are able to fish at the same time and avoid tangled lines. For longer trips you need to be aware that shade is limited and prepare accordingly as well the head (potty) is a portable. More like tent camping than using a RV. 4 hour trips we generally go after whatever is biting and it is all about having fun catching fish not worrying about a specific species rather focusing on what is close and the bite is hot. With limited time we do not want to spend the time riding, we want to be fishing and catching fish. 6 hour trips (half day) during snapper season we go after limits of snapper then start working on other fish that have been biting. We generally get a limit with a few large snapper and some other fish species. We do not focus on all big fish as we are time limited and want to make sure we get you as many fish as possible up to the limit. 8 hour trips allow the captain time to be more picky about the fish we keep so the average size of what we keep is normally larger. It also allows time to target other fish and expand the adventure. Minutes of Use is a great family and starter boat because she is open air, fast, and most affordable. Captain Walt loves working with new fishermen and youngsters, getting them hooked on deep sea fishing forever. She is the perfect boat to take the family or group of up to 6 people, and have a private trip with a captain and deck hand focused on your success and enjoyment of the day. There are plenty of fish to catch, the secret is to have fun catching them!!!! We ask you to bring wipe on sunscreen rather than spray on if at all possible as the spray gets on the floor and makes it very slick. You also need only to bring drinks, snacks, and a camera for pictures. When the trip is over the crew will clean your fish and bag them for you. the deck hand is normally the hardest working guy on the boat helping you with bait, tips on catching, rigging the rods, and all around helping make the trip easier and fun. Tipping the deck hand in customary in the 10-20% range. Captain Walt will be contacting you before the trip so if you have any questions he will be happy to answer and make sure it is a great trip.

Fishing in the Rolling Tide

Alabama is a year round fishery with access to the Gulf of Mexico along with lakes and rivers that provide excellent fishing for a multitude of species. Alabama has a rich fishing history starting with the indigenous cultures that first took advantage of the bountiful waters. Alabama is also home to America’s first ever fishing tournament, the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo which started in Mobile Bay back in 1928. It is the ideal state to get your fill of southern hospitality, sweet tea, and football, as well as enjoy some time out on the water.

Alabama is a state that no matter when you visit, there will be something to fish for both inland and off the coast. Though, if there are a specific species that you would like to catch, it is important to check when they are in season. Some fish like triggerfish and speckled trout are available year round but do better in certain seasons. Others fish are highly migratory like Atlantic sailfish which are usually only available at certain times of the year.

Fishing Alabama’s Coasts

***Alabama Inshore Fishing***

Inshore fishing in Alabama is like no other. Right off the white sandy beaches of Gulf Shores, there is plenty of fishing to be done, but the real gem of Alabama is Mobile Bay. Mobile Bay is known as America’s Amazon, due to its rich diversity that hosts more species of fish, mussels, turtles, crawdads, and others, than any other state. These fertile waters produce fishing that is second to none.

***Alabama Nearshore Fishing***

Alabama’s Marine Resources Division works hard to maintain a prime environment for fishing, and it’s paying off. Within nine miles of the coast, they maintain a hard bottom habitat full of artificial reefs that have increased the number of fish greatly including popular species like red snapper, grouper, amberjack, and more. With plenty of bayous for juvenile fish, fertile waters to spawn in, and excellent structure to live in and find cover, the fish have taken advantage of the perfect ecosystem and are thriving.

***Alabama Offshore Fishing***

Alabama is one of the premier locations for access the Gulf of Mexico and is now home to some of the biggest and best deep sea fishing fleets in the country. This is also thanks to the work and regulations of the Alabama Marine Resource Division. Because of them, the waters of Alabama’s Gulf Coast are once again teeming with pelagic fish species. Between nine and 200 miles from shore huge trophy fish patrol the water and provide some of the best opportunities to hook into the catch of a lifetime.

Top Saltwater Catches in Alabama

***Inshore Target Species in Alabama***

***Speckled Trout***

Fishing for speckled trout is a year round adventure in Alabama but is especially hot in the summer months. Alabama provides the clear and warm waters that speckled trout thrive in. Speckled trout are sensitive to water quality and prefer specific levels of water salinity. With the flats and shallow bays connected to the rivers and bayous, speckled trout can move around to find their preferred water tolerance. Because specks are always on the move it gives anglers plenty of opportunities to chase them.

***Redfish***

Fishing for redfish in Alabama can be done throughout the year as they cruise grass beds, jetties, and piers looking for prey. Big bull reds appear in Alabama in the fall, and are known for growing huge and putting up a terrific fight. The shallow bays, rocky outcroppings, and sandbars in Alabama’s bays provide the perfect habitat for redfish.

***Flounder***

Both Gulf and Southern flounder can be found hanging around the back bays and island beaches of Alabama. Tidal currents and pilings provide the perfect ambush territory for flounder to catch baitfish. Flounder can be caught year round in Alabama, but tide and moon phases affect their activity, so it’s important to be aware.

***And More!***

Alabama’s fertile coastal waters come from the river systems that feed into the Gulf of Mexico. The mix of fresh and saltwater creates an incredible fishery that allows anglers to catch so many other inshore fish species including sheepshead, black drum, white trout, and more!

***Nearshore Target Species in Alabama***

***Red Snapper***

Although there are only 53 miles of coastline in Alabama, they are still proclaimed the “Red Snapper Capital of the World.” This title comes from anglers consistently catching absolute monster red snapper weighing well over 40 pounds year after year. The secret is the abundance of artificial reefs that snapper love and Alabama has more than 20,000 just off the coast.

***Gray Triggerfish***

Where you find red snapper, you will also find triggerfish. They are unique but sometimes pesky fish known for stealing bait which makes them a very rewarding and tasty treat if you can get one landed. Again, the artificial reef system of Alabama makes fishing for triggerfish unbeatable.

***Gray Snapper***

Gray snapper, or mangrove snapper, has great fishing opportunities on Alabama’s coast year round. Similar to red snapper, the artificial reefs are where you can find gray snapper especially when there’s a good tidal flow. Although they are smaller, mangrove snapper can also be found inshore, but the nearshore reefs are where the big ones hang out.

***And More!***

The artificial reef system created by the state of Alabama has established a thriving ecosystem of bottom dwellers, reef fish, bait fish, and more. Grouper, amberjack, and many other species can be caught by bottom fishing near the reefs which are an excellent opportunity for some great fishing only a few miles from shore.

***Offshore Target Species in Alabama***

***Mahi Mahi***

Dorado, dolphin fish, mahi mahi, whatever you want to call them, just be ready for a strong fight from this fast fish off the coast of Alabama. Mahi are a migratory species that travels to Alabama waters in the summer months and can be found cruising around the rip lines and floating debris in deep water. Out in the blue water, mahi can grow up to 80 pounds and are often the most acrobatic. Smaller mahi can also be found closer to shore and are sometimes called “chicken dolphins.”

***Atlantic Sailfish***

Another migratory fish that shows in strong numbers to Alabama in the summer is the Atlantic sailfish. They can be caught along their route through the deep blue, and will put up a highly acrobatic fight. Sailfish are notoriously difficult to catch, due to their speed and strength, so once you get into the deep and start trolling, be ready.

***King Mackerel***

King mackerel or kingfish are large silver fish that can be found cruising the deep coastal waters of Alabama. Kings will school up and follow baitfish throughout the water column even chasing them up to shallow waters around oil rigs. Essentially where there is bait, the kings will follow. Known for being fast, aggressive, and tasty, strong fighters, and a rewarding catch. Often called the “Alabama tradition” they move in large schools especially during August, making it the perfect time to hop on a boat and head out to hook up with one.

***And More!***

Since Alabama has direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, it also has access to the diverse fish that live there. Shark, Spanish mackerel, marlin, and more can all be caught near the continental shelf which is only a short distance from the Alabama shore.

Top Freshwater Catches in Alabama

***Largemouth Bass***

Bass fishing in Alabama is a sacred tradition with opportunities available throughout the year. Alabama is absolutely loaded with lakes, rivers, ponds, and reservoirs that are chock-full of largemouth and other species of bass. On some of these bodies of water, anglers are reporting 100+ landings a day. Many of the lakes rank among the top bass spots according to B.A.I.T (Bass Anglers Information Team), making your chances of landing a new personal best about as good as it gets.

***Crappie***

From the top to the bottom of the state, Alabama is littered with crappie hot spots. Alabama has lakes and ponds that consistently rank high on lists of national crappie spots, but the sheer amount of honey holes is often overlooked. Crappie fishing is excellent year round almost anywhere you turn in Alabama.

***Catfish***

Alabama is known for high floods, and on average is flooded every 12 days. Catfish thrive in muddy, flooded waters which makes Alabama’s waters the perfect home for catfish. Flathead, blue, and channel cats can be found throughout the state, spreading throughout lakes, ponds, and down to the deltas using rivers and tributaries. Some of the biggest cats in the country have been found in Alabama’s reservoirs.

***And More!***

The amount of freshwater across the state, combined with the warm year round climate makes Alabama an excellent place to fish. Species like smallmouth bass, striped bass, hybrids, bluegill, brim, and more can be found throughout the state.

Best Places to Fish Alabama’s Saltwaters

***Orange Beach***

Orange Beach is a great place to fish due to all the different areas you can target. With the backwater bayous, white sandy beaches, artificial reefs, and access directly to the depths of the Gulf of Mexico, you can hit Orange Beach for basically any type of fishing you’re looking for. Orange Beach itself began as a fishing village that bloomed into the city of tourism it is today. It even has two museums with buildings that are historical landmarks with roots traced back to their early days of fishing.

***Gulf Shores***

Another great area with access to different types of fishing is Gulf Shores. Gulf Shores is home to the second largest pier on the Gulf Coast, as well as excellent shore fishing from 32 miles of pristine sandy beaches. Headed off the beach, excellent fishing is available no matter how far you go thanks to the ecosystem provided by the abundance of artificial reefs in the area. In fact, Gulf Shores is host to one of the country's largest fishing charter fleets, and artificial reef density.

***Dauphin Island***

Dauphin Island is a metropolitan city, placed on a barrier island off the coast of Alabama. The location of the island itself gives access to prime inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing. The island itself provides a lot of coastline with high populations of speckled trout, flounder, and redfish. Since it is a barrier island nestled between wrecks and other artificial reefs, Dauphin Island has great nearshore fishing, especially for triggerfish and snapper. As always, access to the Gulf Coast allows for excellent offshore fishing.

***And More!***

Despite having the smallest amount of coastline of the Gulf states, Alabama more than makes up for it with excellent fishing spots that produce an abundance of diverse fish species thanks to the efforts of the fishery programs. Artificial reefs have created a rich ecosystem full of fish from the backwaters to the open ocean. There are many different fishing villages dispersed around the bays, such as Coden, AL which has endless opportunities to get out on the water.

Best Places to Fish Alabama’s Freshwaters

***Lake Guntersville***

Located in Northern Alabama between Bridgeport and Guntersville, Lake Guntersville is Alabama’s largest lake at 67,900 square acres of water. Fed by the Tennessee River, it is a fertile lake with a variety of fish, aquatic vegetation, and submerged structure from forests that have been flooded. Historically, two thirds of the anglers that visit Lake Guntersville a year are targeting largemouth bass, the gem of the lake, however, there are plenty of crappie, bluegill, and catfish that inhabit the lake.

***Pickwick Lake***

Pickwick Lake is known as the best smallmouth bass fishery in the United States. This lake is actually a reservoir that spreads between two dams along the Tennessee River. Along with bass, the lake is popular for crappie, bluegill, and more. The warm water discharged from local power plants combined with the submerged vegetation and timber provides excellent year round freshwater fishing.

***Lake Eufaula***

Another reservoir, Lake Eufaula, spreads across over 45,000 square miles along the Chattahoochee River. Largemouth and spotted bass, crappie, catfish, and more can be found both large and in quantity within the lake. The reservoir itself spans across both Georgia and Alabama, making it possible to be accessed from both states, and making a fishing license from either state legal.

***And More!***

With an extremely large freshwater system that expands through the entire state via rivers, tributaries, ponds, and lakes, there is endless fishing to be done. Areas like Joe Wheeler State Park, Lay Lake, Lewis Smith Lake, and more provide year round freshwater fishing.

    We had a great time fishing with Bill and Nikki. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate with us. Very windy and choppy in the Gulf that forced us to stay in the inside bay.

    Captain Bobby was GREAT. The 2 hour inshore is a perfect length of time if you have kids, or if you don't know if you will enjoy fishing or not. My son has been talking about fishing forever and I found Captain Bobby via a Google search. This was the BEST DAY of our trip to Gulf Shores/Orange Beach. He's excellent and patient with kids - and will clean up your fish and cut it up and provide you with a restaurant recommendation where they will fry up your fish for you. I even caught a 40 lb Black Drum fish - and it was my first time ever fishing! 10/10.

    Our group of 12 went fishning with Captain Dale and crew in Orange Beach, Alabama on 11/24/23 the day after Thanksgiving and we had such a wonderful time. We didn't know if our luck at that time of year would be good but Captain Dale's extensive experience and knowledge got us right where we needed to be and OMG we didn't stop catching fish. It was the highlight of our Gulf Shores vacation. And we highly recommend booking Captian Dale through Captain Experiences whose process is easy, convenient, and no hassle booking . Trust me, Captain Dale,Zekes Landing,Orange Beach, Alabama = FISH!
