The most unique and addictive angling in the world can be found in the Gulf and back bay waters of Alabama, and Gulf Coast Charters are giving you the opportunity to explore it for yourself. They target a wide variety of fish including Speckled Trout, Flounder, Redfish, White Trout, Sheepshead and more!

Gulf Coast Charters customize their trips to suit the needs of the angler on the day. Whether you want to enjoy a casual trip with your family and friends to target some tasty Grouper, or take your fly rod out for a record breaking King Mackerel, they have a light tackle charter to suit your wishes.

Whatever brings you to the Alabama Gulf Coast, even if you are not the avid angler in search of a world record catch, fishing aboard a charter vessel can be one of the finest times you will have here. Whether it’s a small group on a small boat in search of a fishing adventure, an all-day trip with a large group, or night-fishing in the summer months, it’s all here and it’s all fun!
