About Your Trip

A bottomfishing trip off of Orange Beach, AL, is the perfect way to enjoy the beautiful Gulf of Mexico while doing some amazing fishing! On this charter, you'll be on board Captain Bobby’s 24’ Blazer Bay, a perfect vessel for pulling Barracuda, Black Grouper, Rainbow Runner, Vermillion Snapper, Red Snapper and more!

Captain Bobby will provide you with top-of-the-line gear and bait, and he will explain the different techniques and strategies used to catch all
kinds of sportfish species. As you cruise through the nearshore waters, you'll be able to spot seabirds, turtles, dolphins, and other marine species! Once you're over the reefs, you'll begin drifting while you fish live and cut bait, dropping lines deep to attract big bites.

When you get a bite, Captain Bob will be there to guide and assist you in reeling in your catch. Amberjack, Barracuda, and Grouper are all known for their strength and stamina, and catching one of these fish will be a thrilling experience! Whether you're a beginner or an expert, this trip will be a blast and will give you great opportunities to catch a new personal best!

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.

Capt Bobby was the best! He put us on the fish, was very personable, and professional. He was knowledgeable on all the different kinds of fish we caught. He cleaned and packaged our fish for us and even recommended a place for us to take our fish so that they would cook it for us! We had a great time and definitely will have to come back to fish with Capt. Bobby again!

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!!

Captain Bobby did a great job. We had some weather come in that caused us some issues at first, but he kept after it and put us on the fish, and we ended up seeing some great action. He was personable and
knowledgeable and we’ll definitely choose him the next time we’re in the Gulf Shores or Orange Beach area.

The fishing trip was good considering the conditions. The area had a few days of heavy rain before we went out. The inshore fishing was slow, but we still managed to load up a nice bunch of fish. Bobby was pleasant, informative and professional. Next trip to Gulf Shores we will definitely book another trip with Bobby.

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 QR Code 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!
