Reel Time Charters

Welcome to Reel Time Charters! Captain Randall Sullens and his crew strive to make their customers happy with any adventure they decide to take. They specialize in offshore trips that take place year round. You can start your trophy quest from Gulf Shores or Orange Beach. Whether you’re a seasoned angler or you’ll hold a rod for the first time, you’ll have a great time fishing the Gulf.

Join the captain on his 30’ Contender boat. This center console accommodates up to six guests and provides a safe and quick ride. Since it’s powered by twin 225 HP Yamaha engines, you’ll cut your travel time and spend it on fishing. The Contender is a federal permitted boat, meaning you can go offshore to target the big fish and also keep Red Snapper 7 days a week!

Your catch of the day can be a lot of different species. These bountiful waters hold several types of Snapper, from Red and Vermillion, to Lane and Mangrove. By bottom fishing, you can land Gag, Red, or Scamp Grouper. And trolling in the offshore waters can get you Mahi Mahi, Yellowfin Tuna, Amberjack, or Wahoo.

The captain will provide you with Shimano rods and reels, a variety of bait, and prepare live bait in advance. Your fishing license is covered, so you only need to bring snacks and drinks for the day. Don’t forget your camera, sunscreen, and of course, your enthusiasm!

Hit the book now button and get ready for a saltwater adventure with Reel Time Charters you’ll never forget!

Reel Time Charters is a local charter business that's run by a captain who was raised on these waters. He's been fishing for over 20 years, starting when he was 10 years old. He grew up exploring saltwater fisheries with his grandparents, and loved every minute of it! As well as the fishing grounds of Alabama, he also spent time fishing in Savannah, GA, and uses the wealth of knowledge that he gained from these experiences to provide guests with top-notch angling adventures. His favorite part of the job is seeing other people catch fish! He also loves teaching his guests his favorite techniques, as well as local tips and tricks, to reel in their dream catch. Your captain also has some serious bragging rights under his belt, in the form of some impressive catches – he once reeled in a 100 lb Tuna!
