    As your captain has a federal deep sea permit, you're allowed to keep Red Snapper during certain times of the year when other charters cannot – thanks to this, your morning trip doesn’t have a time limit! The way this trip works is once you have a limit of legal Red Snapper, you'll head back to the dock, where your captain will fillet and clean your catch and you'll be able to enjoy it. The morning bite is especially hot when it comes to these species! Rods, reels, bait, tackle, and license included.

    On this 4-hour adventure, you'll target what Alabama is known for – the famous, hard-fighting, and seriously tasty Red Snapper! If the water clarity is right, your captain will have you trying your luck at a Cobia or Kingfish on the way to the Snapper hotspots. Four hours is just enough time for an awesome boat ride, a nice collection of fish, and a great picture with your family or closest angling buddies! Rods, reels, bait, tackle, and your fishing license are included.

We are in it to win it! Between myself captain gage and captain Coker we have years of experience on the water. We are here to produce. From June -July we are primarily targeting red snapper , king mackerel and Spanish! We are known for our red snapper and have spent years scouting for the best spots to give you plenty of action as well as go home with a nice mess of fillets. You can’t beat watching a kid hook up with something that puts up a fight!! We are federally permitted and can keep snapper Monday -Sunday in June and July! Let us show you a great time, feel free to message us with any questions!
