Captain Gordon Burdette knows all about catching the biggest fish out there. An Orange Beach resident since 1984, he’s spent his fair share of time on the water. Since retirement, he’s taken to the seas more and more often and promises a supportive, fun-filled, and productive trip offshore.

Head up to 30 miles offshore in search of some of the Gulf’s biggest fish. Hit the wrecks in search of huge Snappers, Groupers, Mackerel, Cobia, and more. Head to the deeper waters and you’ll deep drop for one of the tastiest fish in the sea, Tilefish, or battle it out with Wahoo. Wherever you go, you’ll have a real fight on your hands.

At the end of your trip, the first mate will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home. Head back to shore and enjoy the fruits of your labor after a fruitful day out. Choose from trips ranging between 4 and 10 hours, getting whatever you want from your day at sea. Step aboard Alibi Charter Fishing and experience some of the country’s best fishing!
