This family fishing trip was a huge success while on spring break 2013!
The 2013 fishing season is is off to a great start fishing has been great this spring! Now that spring break has started to settle down, customers are starting to turn their attention toward making their summertime reservations aboard the Intimidator. There is simply no better way to experience all of the great fishing that the Alabama Gulf Coast has to offer.
We have proudly served the Alabama Gulf Coast area for over 21 years we have knowledge and professionalism to deliver a successful fishing trip. We have a big, safe, clean and well maintained charter boat that takes the worry out of going offshore fishing. Our massive 65' charter boat can comfortably carry up to 20 people per trip but, our prices are based on up to 10 fishermen.
Our charters are private trips only which means that only you and our crew will be on the boat when fishing as we do not run "walk-on" or split party trips. You don't have to worry about a thing when you bring your family fishing or kids with us. I am a husband and father of three children myself and enjoy seeing the kids and rookies reeling in a big one. We love nothing more than to see y'all have a good time. I encourage you to read my up to date fishing reports to see what we are catching.
Deep Sea Fishing and Trolling
No matter which species of fish you would like to target, we have the charter boat that can get the job done. We love to see families come together and spend time catching a few fish. It is really important to us to make sure you have a good experience while deep sea fishing. Our reputation depends on it. We have a proven track record of professionalism and record catches. Below, we will describe where we fish, how we catch them and how many hour trip you need to take for each one.
Bottom Fishing Trips
Bottom fishing is the most popular type deep sea fishing in this area. On this type of type of trip, we head offshore anywhere from 10 to 50 miles (depending on trip length) and stop over one of thousands of artificial reef. Then everyone grabs a fishing pole and drops their line down toward the bottom where the fish live. When you feel a bite, you simply pull back on the pole and begin reeling in the fish. After an exhausting fight, you can look over the side of the boat and watch your catch surface. Most of the fish you can catch while bottom fishing are: Red Snapper, Trigger fish, Greater Amberjack, Shark, Vermilion Snapper, Red Porgy (White Snapper), Tile Fish, Gag Grouper, Warsaw Grouper, File Fish, Lane Snapper, Red Grouper and many more. All bottom fishing trips are at least 6 hours in length or longer. Quit simply the longer you give me to fish the bigger the fish will be! as well.
Near Shore Trolling
With us, we can troll along right off the beach for King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Bonita, Jack Crevalle or even Bull Redfish. Now everyone loves trolling along near the beaches of Alabama's Gulf Shores. You sit on the back deck and watch the lines until a fish strikes the lure and then you get to fight your trophy fish. Sometimes you can catch two or three fish at any one time. This is because we drag as many as five lines with lures at a time. Often we will drag the lures through a school of fish in hopes that everyone catch a bit one. These Trolling trips near shore are usually 4 to 6 hours in length.
Big Game Fishing, Blue Water Fishing, Oil Rig Trips

Triggerfish were a nice surprise for the lucky lady anglers
These trips are usually overnight in length. A overnight fishing trip allows us enough time to get to the closest deep water rigs which are about 60 miles offshore and some are as far as 150 miles. It takes time to get there but the rewards are great. This type of fishing is ideal for a group of 10 people or less. We target species like Yellowfin Tuna, Blackfin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Bigeye Tuna, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and often see big sharks. We usually fish our way offshore by bottom fishing and just before sundown or after dark, we start fishing for Tuna. Ultimately, these trips are for the more serious angler or group of people who want the ultimate Gulf Shores fishing experience. On the overnight trips, we can do what is called deep dropping and catch species of fish like Yellowedge Grouper, Tile Fish or Scorpion Fish.
