Reel Time Charters is a local charter business that's run by a captain who was raised on these waters. He's been fishing for over 20 years, starting at the age of 10. Capt. Randall grew up exploring saltwater grounds with his grandparents, and he loved every minute of it! Apart from the fishing grounds of Alabama, he also spent time fishing in Savannah, GA, and he uses the wealth of knowledge he gained from these experiences to provide guests with top-notch angling adventures. His favorite part of the job is seeing other people catch fish! He also loves teaching his guests his favorite techniques, as well as local tips and tricks, to reel in their dream catch. Your captain also has some impressive catches under his belt, having once reeled in 100 lbs Tuna!
