Fairhope Charters specializes in inshore bay fishing trips in Alabama. If you need a break from work and just spend time with your family and friends, a trip to the Mobile Bay can be a good medicine.

Up to six guests are welcome aboard a 23-foot Seahunt center console, which is a spacious and seaworthy vessel. It comes powered by a 225 HP Yamaha engine and is fully rigged with two GPS, a VHF radio, and a fish finder. There is a wireless trolling motor fitted to enable a quiet ride, two ice boxes for your refreshments and to store the catch, and two live bait tanks.

Mobile Bay fishing is an exciting opportunity to not travel too far out, but still enjoy the thrill of catching some awesome fish. The mouth of the bay is loaded with a giant Redfish, the artificial reefs are home to Flounder and Sheepshead. You can also reel in a Speckled Trout, Tripletail, and even Tarpon.

If you don’t feel like fishing, the captain has something else to offer. Wedding tours are ideal for those who want a truly unique celebration of such an important day. Sunset cruises are a great way to end a productive day of fishing, and history tours can give you a chance to experience the rich history of Fairhope and the Mobile Bay area.

A fishing trip with Fairhope Charters comes inclusive with tackle, gear, bait, and licenses. The captain will send your catch home cleaned, filleted, and ready to jump straight into the frying pan. You will also be offered water, Coke, and Gatorade, so feel free to bring your favorite food with you.

Was supposed to have a 6hr trip booked but Was told night before it had to be a 4hr due to a booking error. boat was fine, gear was basic used 2 setups and fished several spots never caught any trout but caught other things. Captain acted like a beginner and seemed stumped at times. only keeper fish was a sheephead that the filet was half done and I had to finish when we got home and was butchered up pretty bad with a dull blade. went with Jr, I would imagine Sr would have given a better experience.
