Shady Lady Charters is one of the well-known charter boats along the Alabama Gulf Coast and Florida Panhandle. This reputation is partially based on experienced Captain Brian and his professional crew, who do their best to make every fishing trip a memorable experience for their guests. Regardless of your skill, they’ll put you on fish in no time.

The other reason this charter is so productive is because of the fishing machine where everything happens. “Shady Lady” is a spacious 60’ A1 Marine boat, often referred to as a battleship. There’s enough room for 40 guests to join and it’s packed with fishing gear for everyone. The boat of this size and capacity easily gets to distant offshore spots.

The boat has 3 staterooms, 2 bathrooms, a large salon, a kitchen, Green Egg grill, high volume ice maker, TV, and she’s fully air-conditioned.

Some of the fish you can land by trolling are Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Swordfish, Amberjack, and more. Deep-dropping will most likely get you Tilefish and various types of Grouper and Snapper. The list of possible targets doesn’t end here and you’ll get how bountiful these waters are only when you start fishing.

All licenses and fishing equipment are covered by the crew. They also cover a meal but you can always bring your snacks and drinks.

Fish with the crew that always wins. Join Shady Lady Charters for your next fishing adventure!
