Fish Trap Charters - Fish Trap II

SAN ROC CAY MARINA 27267 Per…
Orange Beach AL, United States

We have been in business since 2006, here in beautiful Orange Beach, Al. This area is home to the largest artificial reef system in the Gulf of Mexico. Our boat is docked at the San Roc Cay Marina, where there are many Orange Beach restaurants and shops.

The Fish Trap II is a 35’ Resmondo with a 13 1/2 foot beam. The boat has air conditioning, a full head, and a large cabin with plenty of room for everyone to sit. We make every effort to keep the boat clean. The Fish Trip is fitted out with top of the line equipment and can take up to six people. 

Mom and Dad: you will be able to enjoy fishing or taking photos of everyone fishing while our awesome deckhand will take care of your children.

Captain Al is the owner and operator of the Fish Trap II. He has been fishing for over 40 years and loves being out on the water. Like he said: “It doesn’t get any better than this”!  Our company mission is to treat our customers as we would like to be treated. Our business rests upon the foundation of satisfaction, fairness and courtesy. We strive to make your fishing experience a memorable one. Let’s not forget the most important person is Karen (also part owner) and her fabulous smoke snapper dip that she makes herself with no artificial ingredients, and brings it down to the dock everyday for our customers to enjoy.

We offer a range of trips running from 4 hours to overnight and specialize in family fishing charters.

The boat was fine and the captain was very nice. The deckhand was not very personable and this really was not fishing.  We expected that we would actually be able to hold the rod and reel if we caught a fish.  We are all fairly experienced fishermen. However, when a fish got on the line, we weren’t even allowed to pick up the line and reel it in. All we did was turn the crank on the reel. We couldn’t even hold it. When we turned the crank and the fish got near the boat, the deckhand would pick up the rod, take the fish off the hook, and put the fish in the cooler. That all happened in the span of about 10 to 15 seconds.  He would put the lure back in the water and set the reel.  Then he would go back into the cabin, sit down and wait for another fish to strike.  He caught plenty of fish..  We felt like we were just on a very expensive boat ride. The captain told us that if we really wanted a fishing experience, we would need to take the longer charter that would bottom fish in deeper water..  I would not recommend the shorter charter that we took. This really wasn’t fishing.
