Rock Bottom Charters

Rock Bottom Charters is a premier fishing charter in the Orange Beach, Gulf Shores and Perdido Key area. With countless satisfied customers, Captain Doug Adams provides fishing trips for all the family to remember. He offers both inshore and offshore trips, fishing for species such as Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, as well as Spanish Mackerel, Red Snapper, and Cobia.

You will be fishing aboard a smart 24 ft Skeeter boat that has a T-Top for shade and comfort. With plenty of space to fish, the boat is powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine that gives it a maximum speed of 45 knots, meaning you won’t waste any time getting to the fish. The boat is equipped with everything you need for a successful trip, with a Minn Kota trolling motor, 10 ft Power Pole anchoring system, Yeti 125 Fish Box, and Lowrance electronics. There is also a Yeti 65 cooler on board to keep your drinks and food cool throughout the trip.

You don’t need to worry if you have never fished before when taking a trip with Rock Bottom Charters. Captain Doug Adams has over 35 years experience fishing the local area, meaning he has plenty of knowledge and patience when teaching people the techniques he has learnt over the years. Children are particularly welcome on board, and can fish for free as extra passengers.As the captain has children of his own, he knows how important it is to keep young anglers entertained with steady action on the boat, and he enjoys watching the same passion for fishing he has had since childhood grow in them.

I have a passion for fishing and sharing this passion with others. I fish both inshore and offshore. I love to have kids on my boat and teaching them not only about the fish they catch, as well as the water ways they are fishing and the local history.
