Charter For Hire

Captain Mike Pollman is happy to offer unique offshore fishing trips. This captain and his crew know the exact locations to go to and can get there smoothly ‘n’ calmly. The ride makes it just right for children – it’s truly a safe and family-friendly charter. On top of this, Capt. Mike and his crew strive to accommodate their clients’ every need. They will put fish on the deck, or there will be no charge!

Along with his federal permit, Capt. Mike is allowed legally to bypass the state zone public fishing reefs and extend trips to private federal fishing reef zoned waters. This is an amazing advantage because the deeper the water, the bigger the fish!

The captain’s 27’ Catamaran is specially equipped with the latest innovations of fishing technology. From the newest 3D bottom imaging and side-scan electronics, drone fish-spotting abilities, electric reels, i-Pilot anchoring systems, real-time radar, and Taco outriggers – this is the ultimate fishing machine! As previously said, this boat offers the smoothest offshore ride possible: The twin hulls slice and glide through the waves.

Using Gold Series 30 and 50 wide reels that your captain will provide, you’ll be able to reel in any fish that strikes your line – no matter the size. The crew will also supply lures and live bait before the trip. You just need to bring your snacks and drinks for the day.

Captain Mike Pollman calls this “Big Water” his playground – and it’s time to play!

I am a native of Dauphin Island and I fish the salt waters southbound of Dauphin Island and the Gulf Shores. I'm on the water every day and have the ability to go straight to the location of the big fish. I keep a heavy interest in what fish are biting where, and who is catching what. Saltwater runs deep through my veins. I love to catch and prepare all kinds of seafood so ask me about some of my recipes. I also can hook you up with local "catch 'n' cook" restaurants or send you to the best taxidermist. I take pride in giving people new to the area the full experience of what it's like to live and fish on the Gulf Coast. I love to teach fishing techniques and target specific species of fish. I also love to catch my own baits by cast net and pull my trawling nets for wild shrimp and sea life. I love being on the water all the time and doing different activities related to boating, shrimping, and fishing. This "Big Water" is my playground and it's time to play.
