Join Sure Shot Fishing Charters, located at the world-famous Flora-Bama Lounge and Oyster Bar in Orange Beach, Alabama. This family-owned business is now led by Captain Mike who has over 30 years of experience fishing the local waters.

Captain Mike is a relaxed and flexible captain who says everyone is welcome on his charters. Families are welcome, and so are their dogs, kittens, or even parrots. Captain Mike wants everyone to enjoy a true family adventure!

Fishing is done aboard a 42’ custom-built commercial boat that offers a clean, comfortable and air-conditioned ride. This beauty is powered by three 420 HP engines, which means you’ll get to the deeper fishing grounds quickly and efficiently, so you have plenty of fishing time. The vessel has a toilet, a shower, a bed, a kitchen, and a TV for your convenience.

Capt. Mike will locate the best spots and provide as much instruction as you need to reel in the fish of your dreams. There are other useful extras on the boat such as a flybridge, downriggers, and outriggers for trolling, and top quality fishing gear used for light and heavy tackle.

Sure Shot specializes in bottom fishing for Red Snapper, Amberjack, a variety of Grouper, Triggerfish, and anything else that will bite the hook. They also offer trolling trips for Bull Redfish, King Mackerel, and Spanish Mackerel. And if fishing the deeper waters is your thing, you can do that too! Targeted species include Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Tuna, and more.

Capt. Mike and Sure Shot Fishing Charters invite you to join their fishing team for a fun-filled day. An experienced deckhand will be there to help you with reeling in your catch. Families with no experience are welcome: the crew enjoys teaching!

Explore the prolific waters of the coast of Alabama with Sure Shot Fishing Charters and have the time of your life!
