Rig Runner

The Rig Runner operates out of the famous fishing town of Gulf Shores, AL. They offer family-friendly fishing adventures making the most of the warm, productive waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Anglers of any age or experience level are welcome aboard, and Captain Cliff will adapt every trip to make sure you get the most out of your time onboard.

You will be fishing aboard a 32’ Twin Vee catamaran which was completely restored in 2018. It can now carry up to six guests in comfort and safety on the search for fish. The boat features GPS and fishfinder to get you in the right spot, outriggers for perfect trolling, and a livewell for the freshest bait. It also has a portable head in the center console for those long trips offshore.

Choose from an unbeatable range of trips, each designed to get you on a certain type of fish. Shorter trips fish the inshore and nearshore waters for Sheepshead, King Mackerel, Redfish, and more. During Red Snapper season, you can go after these delicious bottom fish and really fill the freezer.

Up for more of an adventure? Jump aboard for a 12-hour charter and head 60-80 miles offshore. Target deep-water bottom fish like Scamp Grouper and Vermillion Snapper or go all out and try for Yellowfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and even Marlin.

Whatever you do, you will be doing it in a supportive, friendly environment perfect for both beginners and seasoned anglers. All rods, reels, tackle, and bait is included, as are fishing licenses for everyone onboard. Just bring your food, drinks, and a big cooler to fill with tasty fillets at the end of the trip.
