Black Warrior Charters

Wrestling massive Catfish, while surrounded by some of Alabama’s most beautiful nature, sounds like a dream. Black Warrior Charters makes it a reality though, thanks to Captain Matthew Terry – an avid angler who’ll put you on the hottest bite around.

Capt. Matthew invites you on board his 16’ SeaArk. She’s a sleek boat, capable of carrying you, your best fishing buddy, and Capt. Matthew. Her shallow draft and spacious deck are perfectly suited for stalking Catfish. Live bait fishermen will be glad to hear that there’s a livewell on board – your bait will stay active and appetizing long after it’s been caught.

The bountiful waters surrounding Northport are home to many exciting freshwater fish for you to target. Capt. Matthew will take you after some of the hottest catches around like the giant Catfish, or the famous Striped Bass. If you’re a fan of smaller fish, Flathead and Freshwater Drum can also be targeted, as well as other fish you run into.

You will be provided with all the required fishing equipment and tackle you may need for trips with Capt. Matthew. Drinking is allowed on board, but moderation is highly recommended, safety first! Snacks can be prepared upon request, contact the captain before arriving to work out the details.

If you’re ready for some exciting freshwater action in the picturesque nature of eastern Alabama, you’re ready to book a trip with Black Warrior Charters!

I started guiding because I like to put fish in the boat, and accommodate as much help I can. My favorite species to catch is shad. If I can catch shad, I can catch whatever eats them.
