Everything to Know About Booking an Alabama tarpon fishing charter

What are the best tarpon fishing charters in Alabama?

The best tarpon fishing charters in Alabama are:

Why should I book a tarpon fishing charter in Alabama with Captain Experiences?

Our Damn Good Guides currently offer 4 tarpon trips in Alabama, and the most popular trips in the area are Inshore Orange Beach Action- 22' guided by Brooks, Inshore Magic - 31' guided by Brooks, and Inshore Targets, Nearshore Trolling guided by Brooks.

What types of tarpon fishing charters are common in Alabama?

Inshore fishing is the most popular type of fishing for tarpon in Alabama as well as nearshore fishing.

The most common fishing techniques in Alabama are trolling, live bait fishing, and artificial lure fishing but bottom fishing and light tackle fishing are popular as well.

How much do Alabama tarpon fishing charters cost?

Prices for tarpon in Alabama can range anywhere from about $685 to $1,855, but the average price for a half day trip for tarpon in Alabama is $797. The average price for a full day trip for tarpon in Alabama is $1,783.

Is booking a fishing guide worth the money?

Hiring a guide provides a number of benefits and many choose to book a fishing guide for a combination of experience, local knowledge, convenience, and cost-effectiveness.

Working with experienced fishing guides who know the best local spots and techniques can dramatically increase your odds of a great day. Having someone who is on the water every day and knows the area like the back of their hand is going to give you the best chances of success.

Booking a guide is also more cost effective, especially if you only get out a handful of times per year. When you consider all of the costs you would incur on your own such as the price of a boat, maintenance, insurance, gas, high-quality gear and tackle, repairs, and more, you’ll find that DIY is sometimes not worth the expense.

Even if you’ve got a great setup already in your home waters, booking a guide also provides a great opportunity to experience new techniques, new locations, or even a chance at a new target species to knock off the bucket list.

What month is best for tarpon fishing in Alabama?

The most popular season for tarpon fishing in Alabama is summer, and most anglers book their trips 32 days in advance.

Do I need a Alabama fishing license for tarpon and what are the bag limits for tarpon in Alabama?
