Come spend some time on the water with In Too Deep Charters and relax as the crew takes care of everything for you. If you’re a little squeamish about touching fish or bait, no worries! The crew does it all from baiting your hook to cleaning and bagging the filets for you. Welcome to Gulf Shores and enjoy a lovely fishing experience in Alabama!

Captain Tony Hogan has been pleasure fishing since he could walk and tournament fishing for over 30 years. He aims to please, so let him know if there’s a species you’d like to target on your trip or if you have any special requests in general.

The boat you’ll be on is a 28’ Angler center console powered by twin 200 HP Mercury engines. It can fit 6 guests and features a few bean bags that you can use during your trip for a little added comfort. There’s a porta potty on the boat if needed. Feel free to bring a cooler with any food and drinks you may want. Also, the boat is equipped with full-featured navigation electronics and a livewell.

For those with a weak stomach, please remember to take some Dramamine at least an hour before you’re scheduled to leave out. The captain does have a Reliefband on board for use if you forget, but it’s best to take that preemptive strike with meds.

The species you can go after include Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Snapper, Grouper, Gray Triggerfish, Cobia, Mackerel, Amberjack, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout. Using both light and heavy tackle, you can bottom, deep sea, and drift fish, as well as troll, spin, and jig. You can keep your catch as well as bring kids aboard.

At the end of the trip, the deckhand will clean and bag the fish for you. He works for tips, so please bring some cash with you. While he’s hard at it, you can hang out at the marina relaxing on the swings or walk over to Tacky Jacks restaurant. All the fishing gear and licenses are included in your trip.

Visit In Too Deep Charters and make lifelong memories on the water!
