    This was an excellent experience even on a choppy day. Captain Tom and our two deck hands did an amazing job helping the family keep their lines tight and baited. Plenty of fish for the day!

    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. We caught plenty of fish, and several varieties but we could on find one legal size. Highly recommend them to charter.

    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!

    Had an excellent afternoon fishing inland with Bobby. He put us on the fish. We had 2-3 fish coming in the boat at the same time. Bobby was calm, patient and organized. There was 4 of us and he did an amazing job of baiting hooks, landing fish and giving well timed advise. We will be back. Thanks Bobby Ray!!
