Fishing at night creates a whole different atmosphere and experience for every angler. Join Afterdark Charters from Dauphin Island and Mississippi, well, after dark. Captain Bruce will share his experience with you and do whatever he can to make you feel comfortable.

Just because the trip starts in the evening, it doesn’t mean you have to send your kids to bed. Bring them along and spend some quality fishing time as a family. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome to join, so it doesn’t matter if there are beginners in your group.

Everything begins on a 19’ Carolina Skiff boat that accommodates up to 4 guests. This flats boat is powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine and a wireless trolling motor. Besides all kinds of the necessary safety and navigational gear, the boat also features a cooler for your catch.

On this charter, gigging is the key, so you can forget about rods and reels. You’ll go after Flounder, Sheepshead, Ray, and Crab. Everything that you catch is yours to keep. Before you leave the boat, the captain will clean your catch free of charge.

All fishing equipment you’ll need for this trip is included in the price. The captain also covers your fishing license. This leaves you only to bring some snacks and drinks, and don’t forget to dress something warm.

Afterdark Charters will take you on an adventure this evening. Catch your dinner and experience a different kind of fishing.

I started guiding because I have always had a love and passion for the outdoors and taking friends and family on fishing trips. I want to share the fishing fun and excitement the Mobile Bay has to offer to other people.
