We are the premiere deep sea fishing service along Gulf coast and invite you to come fish us! We have been in business for over 20 years and offer you a big, safe, clean, well maintained 65' charter boat that operates year round with a professional certous crew.

Coming off of a great fall season where we caught some really big Yellowfin Tuna's and Wahoo on the overnight trips and lots of action the shorter trips with Vermillion Snapper, White Snapper and Scamps along with King and Spanish Mackerel. We are working on the boat now and we are looking forward to another great year with plenty of action and good times for all. 

Our pledge to you...

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 mixed in with some good old fashion southern hospitality that you will enjoy. Let us prove to you that no one will work harder in a "G" rated atmosphere. My crew is clean cut, professional young men with captains licenses that are kid friendly and will not swear and cuss in front your kids. They are humble guys with their pants pulled up and their shirt tail tucked in. But more importantly they truly love to fish and it really does shows. So, you don't have worry about a thing with your clients, family or friends onboard.

Bottom Fishing Trips

This is the most popular type of trip taken in this area and it all starts on the 6 hour. It is a very productive way to fish and is commonplace on about every trip that we offer. Most everyone you talk to has some memory of their first fishing trip in the Gulf of Mexico and it will almost always revolves around reeling in a fish off the bottom.

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 excusion and stop over one of thousands of artifical 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 live bait. When you feel the bite simply pull back on the rod and begin reeling it in!

From kids to seniors everyone loves reeling in a fish! This is an excellent way to get the family involved in the outdoors as the whole family 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!

Overnighters, Big Game Fishing, Blue Water Fishing, Oil Rig Trips

Call these trips whatever you want but this is the most premiere offshore adventure that we offer. You might think that is just for the serious die hard fishermen but, you would be surprised at the number of kids and and women who participate and absolutely love these trips! An over night deep water rigs which range from 60 to 150 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico and move around until looking for the best locations to catch the big ones. We will break up the ride along the way, to chase a variety of bottomfish species as we ride out the tuna grounds. We always troll offshore with the wire line reels for a Wahoo or other pelagics 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 Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Skipjack Tuna, Bigeye Tuna, Blue Marlin, White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo and many times often see big Sharks.

We are usually arrive to 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 bottomfish in 500-1000 feet water and catch species of fish like Yellowedge Grouper, Tile Fish or Scorpion Fish if the big game fishing is working out for whatever reason.

Near Shore Trolling

Another budget friendly option is to just relax and troll along right off the beach for King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Bonita, Jack Crevalle or even Bull Redfish. Who wouldn't love to troll right along the white sandy beaches at a slow speed as you sit on the back deck and watch the kids waiting for a strike! 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. Near shore trolling trips are usually 4 to 6 hours in length. Honestly this not something that we are the greatest at because it so weather and condition dependant and we do not stay in there everyday to keep up with it but we do try hard!

Location, Location, Location!

The boat is located at the exclusive Orange Beach Marina which is one of the nicest marine yacht basins along the Gulf Coast. The facility also offers fine dining with Fishers Resturants, transiet yacht slips and home to some of the finest craftsmen in the marine industry at Saunders Yachtworks. Also located on our premisies is  Blue Reef Water Sports for thos who are interested in para sailing and jet skis. There are just a handful of selected charter fishing boats like the Sea Spray, Distraction Chippers Clipper and Yankee Star that all work together, which is very rare in any marina! The entire marina staff is friendly and anyone will gladly give you directions to what you are looking for. (Directions to the marina click here.)
