Capt. Lynn's – Gulf Shores

A personalized fishing trip to Alabama’s saltwater wrecks awaits with Capt. Lynn’s. Based out of Gulf Shores, just next to the Mobile Bay ferry port, you’ll be out in the Gulf of Mexico in no time. Come aboard and battle it out with a range of prized and delicious fish.

Captain Lynn Pridgen has been fishing these seas since he can remember and can’t wait to show you his native waters, helping you land the fish of your dreams. Each trip can be tailored to your fishing desires, so get in touch and let him show you around.

The 22’ Twin Vee catamaran will all but guarantee you a smooth ride. Up to 6 guests are welcome on board to take advantage of the latest fishing gear. Head up to 9 miles offshore, with the navigational gear ensuring you hit the productive spots right away. Keep your bait fresh in the livewell and bottom fish with Penn and Shimano gear for the best results.

While you may have the edge over the fish, you’ll still have to work hard to fill the boat. The famous Red Snapper won’t give up without a fight, while delicious Cobia. Redfish, Tripletail, and Mahi Mahi, all promise to give you a run for your money. Test your strength against Jack Crevalles and Amberjack as you warm up, before filling the boat with something to take home.

Capt. Lynn will clean and fillet your catch when you get back to shore, so you’ll be good to enjoy the taste of success right away! Everything you need for a productive day is waiting on board. With such a wealth of fish on offer in Alabama’s Gulf Shores, can you really say no to an offer like Capt. Lynn’s?
