30 Degrees North Sportfishing – 30'

30 Degrees North Sportfishing is a family-owned-and-operated business that has fished the waters of Southern Alabama and Florida for over 30 years. They offer a more private and personal adventure than your average charter company, building trips that are kid-friendly and perfect for friends and families.

The man in charge of most trips is Captain Mike. He and his crew specialize in bottom fishing, trolling, and deep-dropping, for all your nearshore and offshore species. What you target will depend on your trip, and there are plenty of trips to choose from.

Charters start with fun-filled four-hour sessions targeting King and Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, Cobia, and small Snapper. Stay out a little longer, and you can add Triggerfish, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo to the list of tasty targets. After that, things start to get interesting! 12-hour trips will let you fish for Tilefish, big Red and White Snapper, and topwater predators like Mahi Mahi and Marlin.

If you want to battle the biggest fish in the sea, book an 18-hour trip and take on deep-water Snappers and Groupers, Tilefish, and a full cast of big game pelagics. You’ll be fishing up to 100 miles out for Blue and White Marlin, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and whatever else lurks in the darkest depths of the Gulf of Mexico.

All these trips take place on a stable, well-maintained 30’ Pursuit walkaround. There’s a full bathroom complete with a shower, as well as a comfortable cabin to rest on long trips. She also has a galley with a refrigerator to store and prepare any food or drinks you bring.

The boat is rigged and ready for awesome fishing, with a livewell, outriggers, and quality tackle in weight classes to match anything from Mackerel to Marlin. In short, she has everything you need for a perfect day on the water. Just bring your food, drinks, and personal items, and enjoy!

30 Degrees North Sportfishing is run by Mike Patience, who has been fishing the waters around Orange Beach, AL and all over the world for the last 4 decades. He has a FEDERAL PERMITTED BOAT, with that being said his boat can take you fishing for RED SNAPPER EVERY DAY of the WEEK! He founded the company to share his experience and his love of the water with as many people as possible. The 30 Degrees team is headed by Captain John Sullens. He and his crew specialize in deep-water trolling and bottom fishing, but they're more than capable of getting you on any fish you choose. Located at Romar Marina 26350 Cotton Bayou Drive Orange, AL 36561.
