Fishing in Orange Beach is the thing to do. Whether you are an experienced angler or brand new to fishing, you need to come down and see what all the hype is about now. After your trip, you are sure to be back time and time again – repeat customers are the norm at Black Flag Company with Captain Steve Crews.

Capt. Steve’s trips are particularly great for families with kids – he gets what they are about, and will make sure they have a great day.

There is no minimum age for kids – if the parents think they are ready to learn how to fish, then Capt. Steve is ready to show them how. Life vests are provided for them, and they are sure to have some awesome stories to tell their friends when they get back to school.

You will spend the day on board his 36’ Hatteras boat. This classic boat has been beautifully maintained, with twin 435 HP diesel engines that will see you on top of the fish in no time. Coupled with fishfinder and Capt. Steve’s incredible knowledge of the area, you’ll find the fish and keep on top of them all day.

Depending on which trip you choose, you’ll be able to target a range of species, from Shark, Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, King and Spanish Mackerel, Wahoo, and Mahi Mahi. Each trip offers something different, giving you the opportunity to target your trophy fish.

The first mate will work hard to make sure you have a great day. After the trip, please remember that the industry standard of 20% is customary to tip him. You are welcome to bring along food and drink on the trip – you’ll need to keep your energy up.

All that’s left to do is book, and start thinking how you’ll cook your catch once home!

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Coming from a long line of fishermen. My father was a guide before becoming a game warden when I was a kid. Growing up, I fished or hunted almost every day. As an adult, that passion continues. Before becoming a captain, I commercial shark fished for a living. I have always enjoyed being on the water and giving people the experiences I was blessed with having as a kid. Since becoming a captain, I've guided inshore and offshore. I've been able to help people catch the biggest fish of their lifetime. Look forward to to many more experiences like that.
