I grew up fishing out of Orange Beach, with all of my spare time being spent on the docks of Sportsman's Marina catching Flounder, White Trout, and Croaker. My hobby later turned into a career, after I spent time charter fishing with some of the greatest captains in the area. I now own and operate the Riptide, a 45' Resmondo that specializes in big fish and family fun!!

Only got one small fish. Felt they could have done more to find fish.

Sorry I tried everything, trolling over structure, working the bait fads, and following the Birds we even had bait working on top.  Three hours in not a long time to work with and sometimes they just don’t bite.  Every trolling boat this afternoon caught the same or less.  That’s why it’s called fishing, it was a beautiful day!

Captain (Seth) was extremely friendly and put us on spots to put fish in the box. We all caught a bunch and had a great time. First mate, Chase, was very patient and made sure everyone was taken care of. Overall one of the best charters I’ve ever taken - highly recommend!!
