Dauphin Island Sport Fishing Charters

Are you ready to catch the big one? Then pick a trip with Dauphin Island Sport Fishing Charters! Captains Barry and Justin have been fishing together since they were kids and know everything there is about these spots. Their trips are suitable for anglers of all skill levels and ages, including kids and elders.

You’ll be fishing from a 31’ Ameracat catamaran that accommodates up to 6 guests. She was built in 2018, has professional navigational electronics, and she’s powered by twin 400 HP Mercury engines. Besides providing a safe and fast ride, the boat also has all the equipment you need for a great day of fishing - outriggers, a live bait tank, a fighting chair, and all kinds of rods and reels.

The trips range from 4 to 24 hours long, so there’s really something for everyone. Short trips can take you after Grouper, Snapper, Cobia, or Mackerel, while full day adventures can get you to land Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, or even Marlin. With this long list of possible catches, comes a long list of fishing techniques you can use. Challenge yourself and you’ll see that a harder way is also more fun!

The captain will cover your fishing equipment and license, so you only need to prepare your food, drinks, and sunscreen. If you’re keeping your catch for later, don’t forget to bring your cooler. If you need a pickup by boat, it can be arranged. Just make sure to discuss it with the captain in advance.

Dauphin Island Sport Fishing Charters is just what you need for a perfect day off. Leave your worries behind and set out to the hotspots of the Gulf!

Barry and Justin are native islanders. Their families have fished the waters near the island for eight generations and counting. Before going into business together, Barry and Justin started fishing out of a small 12 ft. Aluminum boat that ventured out into the gulf several times! As teenagers, they both deck handed for charter boats until they had their own boats to fish on. Needless to say, these two know these waters (and fishing spots!) better than anyone. Captain Barry and Justin as the deckhand made a terrific team and were some of the top producers in the charter boat community for years. These guys still fish the waters when their schedules allow, and they are raising rodeo and tournament champions themselves! The ninth generation of islanders is growing up doing what Barry and Justin love - fishing. Dauphin Island holds a special place in our hearts, and we’d love the opportunity to showcase our fishing skills, as well as what the Gulf of Mexico has to offer!
