Sure Shot Fishing Charters

(127) Going fast!

Sure Shot Fishing Charters is located at the world famous Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar in Orange Beach, Alabama. This family owned business is now led by Captain Mike who has over 30 years of experience fishing the local waters.

Captain Mike is a relaxed and flexible captain who says everyone is welcome on his charters. Families are welcome, and so are their dogs, kittens, or even parrots. Captain Mike wants everyone to enjoy a true family adventure!

Sure Shot specializes in bottom fishing for Red Snapper, Amberjack,  a variety of Grouper, Triggerfish, and anything else that will bite the hook. They also offer trolling trips for Bull Redfish, King Mackerel, and Spanish Mackerel. And if fishing the deeper waters is your thing, you can do that too! Targeted species include Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Tuna, and more.

Fishing is done aboard a 42’ custom built charter boat that offers a clean, comfortable and air-conditioned ride. This beauty is powered by three 420 HP Cummins 5.9 Turbo engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 20 knots. The speed means you’ll get to the deeper fishing grounds quickly and efficiently, so you have plenty of fishing time.

Using the onboard GPS and fishfinder, Captain Mike will locate the best spots and provide as much instruction as you need to reel in the fish of your dreams. There are other useful extras on the boat such as a flybridge, a fighting chair, downriggers and outriggers for trolling, and top quality fishing gear used for light and heavy tackle.

The vessel has a toilet, a shower, a bed, a kitchen, and a TV for your convenience.

Captain Mike and Sure Shot Fishing Charters invite you to join their fishing team for a fun filled day. An experienced deckhand will be there to help you with reeling in your catch. Families with no experience are welcome: Sure Shot’s crew enjoys teaching!
