Trick 'Em Charters

If you’re looking for a family-oriented charter to take you fishing in Mobile Bay and beyond, turn to Trick ‘Em Charters! Captain Patrick Gallagher is not only friendly and knowledgeable but he also knows the local waters like the back of his hand.

Do some inshore fishing and go after the all-time favorites like Redfish, Flounder, Speckled Trout, Mangrove Snapper on 4-hour excursions. Want more time on the water? No problem, Capt. Patrick has 6- and 12-hour expeditions on offer, where you will combine inshore action with trolling for King and Spanish Mackerel. It usually takes up to 20 minutes to get to the fishing holes.

The boat that will take you to the best bite is a 22’ Southern Star center console that can sit up to 4 people. The boat is fitted with a 150 HP Yamaha engine and well-suited for different types of fishing, from backcountry to reef fishing. You’ll use Daiwa, Ugly Stik, and Shimano rods and reels to get your catch into the boat, and Capt. Patrick will provide live bait and lures.

You can get your catch cleaned and filleted for a small additional charge, and whatever you don’t want to eat, you can release. Families with kids are welcome, it’s preferable if the little ones are 4 and older, your guide will have life jackets for everyone.

Pack a supply of drinks, snacks, and food, some sunscreen, and a camera, and leave everything else to Capt. Patrick. Join Trick ‘Em Charters for a day on the water and create lasting memories!
