Gulf Shores Deep Sea Fishing Charters
This big charter boat is one of the flagships in the Orange Beach fishing fleet. It is fully air conditioned with two private bathrooms. It is truly hard to express how big this boat is until you have been onboard.

Welcome Aboard! Please accept our invitation to come with us on a trip of a lifetime. We cater to fishermen who simply expect the very best in a charter fishing experience on a big, safe, clean, well maintained 65' fishing machine. I personally hand built this vessel for the discriminating angler who vacations in the Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama area.
Open year round and staffed with a professional, courteous crew that is extremely diverse in many different aspects of fishing and customer service. This uniquely allows us to offer you many angling opportunities with different types of trips to choose from ranging from half day, full day and overnight trips. We would be glad to have the opportunity to help you catch a wide variety of big fish species like Snappers, Groupers, Amberjacks Sharks and on our multi-day trips, you have a chance to target other game fish such as Tuna, Wahoo, Dolphin, Cobia and Mackerel.

Our deep sea fishing pledge to you is simple and straightforward...
The kids are really what its a bout! Even though we run trips looking for big fish, this what we need to remember!
It is really important for us to make sure you have a good experience while on the water, as our reputation depends on it. We have a long history of professionalism that is mixed in with some good old fashioned southern hospitality, that you will enjoy. Let us prove to you that no one will work harder in a "G" rated, faith-based atmosphere than us. I will make every attempt to keep this booking process simple, the fishing fun, yet as entertaining and educational as possible while doing our parts of being good stewards of the sea.
My crew of deckhands is clean cut, professional young men with captains licenses or they are working towards getting certified. We are kid friendly and do not swear or cuss in front of people. That is not who we are. Our crew is humble guys with their pants pulled up, shirt tails tucked in but more importantly, they truly love to fish and it really does show. So, you don't have worry about a thing with your clients, family or friends on board as we have taken all the worry out of it.
Bottom Fishing, Reef Fishing Trips
A 6 hour or the half-day deep sea fishing trip is a popular type of charter taken by families on vacation in the local area. These excursions are a basic introduction to bottom fishing and can at times be very productive adventures that have always been popular with the kids. We generally always leave the dock no later than 6 am (or 12:30 pm on the afternoon half day) and will head out anywhere from 10 to 50 miles depending on the length of the trip.
As we arrive offshore, I will stop over one of the thousands of artificial reefs. Then, everyone grabs a fishing pole and will slowly drop their line down toward the bottom with pieces of cut squid, mackerel or maybe a live bait. When you feel the bite simply pull back on the rod and begin reeling it in! It's really that simple everyone from kids to seniors everyone loves reeling in a fish!
This is an excellent way to get the family involved in the outdoors as everyone can fish at one time and multiple hook-ups are common! Now keep in mind that more time you can give me, the bigger the fish generally get!
Overnight Deep Sea, Big Game Fishing, Blue Water Fishing, Oil Rig Trips
If you are more of a seasoned saltwater angler and looking for a little more than a half day trip then these trips are for you. One might think that is just for the serious die-hard fishermen but, you would be surprised at the number of kids and women who participate and absolutely love these trips!
An over night deep sea fishing charter is one of the most premiere offshore adventures that we offer and provides the ultimate in digital fasting...you know getting away from the phone, Facebook, twitter, etc. We fish all the deep water rigs which range from 60 to 150 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico, South of Gulf Shores. We will break up the ride along the way, to chase a variety of bottom-fish species as we ride out the tuna grounds. We always troll offshore with the wire line reels for a Wahoo or other pelagic species on the way out. We limit the number of people to only 10 or less to make sure you are comfortable and have lots of room to spread out and not feel cramped.
We target species like Yellow-fin and Black-fin Tuna, Skip jack Tuna, Big Eye Tuna, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo and many times often see big Sharks. We usually arrive at the deepwater rigs just before sundown or just after dark, and we may start trolling at that time. But we have lots of secrets such as trolling with ballyhoo, flying the kite, live baiting, chunking or jigging to help us get the bite. There are lots of options with this much time, so we can adjust to the bite as things or conditions change on the spot where shorter trips can not.
We can also deep drop which is a form of dropping down in 500-1000 feet water to catch species of fish like Yellow edge Grouper, Tile Fish or Scorpion Fish. This is not as easy as it seems and requires a lot of patience and specialized electric reels and tackle which we keep on the boat just for this very purpose. Not every day is it possible to do this but typically if the big game fishing is working out for whatever reason this is a great fall back.
Our Gulf Shores Fishing Location
The boat is proudly moored at the exclusive Orange Beach Marina which is one of the nicest marine yacht basins along the Alabama Gulf Coast. This modern facility also offers fine dining with Fishers Restaurants, transient yacht slips and home to some of the finest craftsmen in the marine industry at Saunders Yachtworks. (Directions to the marina click here.)
Private Deep Sea Fishing trips only... What does that mean?
Quite simply it will be just you and your party on the boat and we do not add other people to your trip. So if you are looking for"walk-on or split party trips" you will need to look elsewhere.
