Orange Beach Fishing Charters - 37' Black Cat

Join Orange Beach Fishing Charters on the Black Cat for your newest fishing adventure, and explore the beautiful waters off the coast of Alabama! Captain Marty Starling has been fishing for over 25 years, and he knows these waters like the back of his hand, so he’ll make sure your trip is productive and enjoyable.

You’ll explore these waters on the Black Cat – a 37’ Profection catamaran boat. The boat can take out up to 6 people, and it can develop some serious speed, putting you on the fish instantly. Everyone can bottom fish at the same time, and you’ll take turns when it comes to trolling. You can enjoy the shade under the flybridge, and there’s a toilet on board for your convenience.

Capt. Marty will provide you with Penn and Van Staal rods and reels, as well as live bait. You’ll mostly be trolling and bottom fishing in the offshore waters of the area. If you’d like to taste your catch after a productive day at sea, the crew will be happy to clean it for you.

The Gulf of Mexico is a fishing paradise for a reason! There’s an abundance of fish species that call these waters their home, and the nature is stunning. Depending on the technique, you can expect to target species like Barracuda, Mahi Mahi, Mackerel, Amberjack, Snapper, Triggerfish, and Wahoo.

Kids of all ages are welcome, and Capt. Marty loves educational trips. You can bring your whole family, and make it a fun experience where your kids can learn all about fishing. If you’re happy with your trip, tips for the first mate are appreciated. Make sure to bring some sunscreen, some snacks and drinks, dress appropriately, and you’re ready for some fun.

Join Orange Beach Fishing Charters, get on board Black Cat, and experience the Gulf of Mexico like never before!

Captain Marty has been fishing these waters for over 25 years. He loves making educational trips, where he can teach people all there is to know about fish. He’s a 4th generation commercial fisherman, so he pretty much grew up on the water. Capt. Marty loves seeing people enjoy themselves on his boat, the looks on their faces when they catch a huge fish, and showing them the amazing scenery. Marty grew up tournament fishing, fished up and down the whole east coast, and even went to Hawaii when he was 20 to fish for Marlin. He considers himself to be a professional, he’s knowledgable and willing to explain everything to his guests. He likes to feel his guests out and try to tailor their trips to what he feels they’ll enjoy the most. He says fishing is what gets him out of the bed in the morning, he’s really passionate about it and not in the business for the money. He wakes up thinking what fish he’s gonna catch and what kind of adventure he’s gonna have with his clients.
