Things to Consider when booking a charter fishing trip
Let me offer some good advice and maybe even some wisdom for planning a charter fishing trip in Gulf Shores. Make sure when you are looking for a charter boat or comparing prices of trips that you are looking at boats of equal size and amenities. Obiviuosly, the bigger more elobrate the boat, the more expenzive the trip, but look in to what all is included and how many people the price is good for. Just remember that you will get what you pay for and if you looking for a cheap trip that is most likely what you will get. Please, carefully consider where to invest your fishing dollars as the fierce competition for the resource and anglers in the fishery has significantly raised standards and expectations over the past few years.
Now, listen to advice prudently and seek a variety of resources when determining which vessel you prefer to fish on. Remember in some cases a boat is a boat but a professional, experienced crew is the difference between a highly successful and an average trip. Have you ever noticed how many mates a particular boat can go through? It almost seems that some Captains have to beg to find a mate for a trip and that is not how I would want to spend my money on a fishing trip. Granted, I have been through my share but to keep the main part of my crew together for 12 of the last 15 years, is a testament to the hard work we have all put forth as a team.
Sometimes half as many as twice as nice
Another factor to consider when booking a fishing trip is the number of anglers you bring. It goes without saying that a lower number of anglers translates into more space on the deck, more space at the rail, and a generally more laid back atmosphere overall. But, the limited angler loads also translate into slightly higher fares but you be the judge of that. For more information this read this article.

The best and ultimate resource for exact details of you fishing trip is the owner of the vessel on which you are considering a voyage. This may not always be immediately possible as some Owners are just investors but some of owners also operate their vessels and may be at sea when you call, but if you leave a message for me I will personally call you back.
