Sunrise Charters - Fort Morgan

Fort Morgan is located in a veritable sweet spot - it has the wonderful Bon Secour Bay to its north, providing it with access to the flats as well as inshore and backcountry fishing to die for. On the other hand, the south faces the Gulf of Mexico, a world-renowned bluewater fishing area. Sunrise Charters is poised to yank the best fish out of both of these areas and invites you to join them!

Climb aboard their bay boat, manufactured by Shearwater in 2018, she still has that new boat smell. She measures 27’ in length, allowing 4 anglers to fish in comfort at the same time. The engine is a beast, produced by Yamaha and delivering 350 HP. That serious power allows the boat to develop a staggering maximum cruising speed of 62 knots, allowing you to practically fly across the water to the fishing grounds.

Join Captain Todd Brice in stalking inshore and offshore waters around Fort Morgan. He has over two decades of fishing experience and he’s keen on sharing it with his customers. You can expect to go after a variety of different species, such as Redfish, Flounder, Spotted Seatrout, Red Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, and others. The techniques used are varied as well, with light tackle spinning and jigging, trolling, bottom fishing, and drift fishing.

Live bait is available for customers on this charter. There is no minimum age for children, and Capt. Todd encourages young anglers to come on board and learn all about fishing. Vests of all sizes are provided by the charter. Customers are advised to bring polarized sunglasses, sunscreen, adequate clothing, and a waterproof camera to capture the memorable day.

Captain Todd Brice is a USCG certified captain who has been fishing for over 20 years. A native to this part of Alabama, he's was raised on these waters. He specializes in inshore fishing, and particularly enjoys targeting Trout. With such a successful personal record, Capt. Todd helps his customer use the same methods he likes to use, so you can expect to fish with live bait during your trip. He enjoys watching people enjoy reeling in their own fish almost as much as doing it himself, especially when he's given them a helping hand.
