About the Captain

Seth Wilson
Orange Beach, Alabama, United States
Member since December 2014
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!!

This trip was for my nieces, ages 19, 17, & 12.. For the experience, no serious expectations. The experience was great! Everyone got multiple turns.reeling in ‘the big one.’ Very satisfactory! The Dolphins swimming close by, added bonus. Deck Hand Drew was great with us, kept the bait in the water, taught us to yell “fish on,” when we had one and was great keeping the girls engaged, fishing, chatting, & laughing. Thank you!
