Dorado invites you on a fun-packed day on the gorgeous waters of Alabama. Captain Jeff Thierry will pick you up at fort Morgan, AL or Dauphin Island and take you to the area’s rich nearshore and offshore waters, reefs, and wrecks. The captain has 35 years of angling experience and guarantees you to catch fish. You’ll fish with the latest fishing tackle and gear and the knowledgeable crew will help make sure your fishing experience is one you’ll never forget.

The boat you’ll be using is a restored 30’ Contender center console made in 2020. It can sit up to 6 guests. Thanks to its twin 300 HP Suzuki four stroke engines, you’ll reach the fishing grounds in no time and have more time for fishing. The boat uses various navigation electronics and is equipped with a livewell.

The wide choice of fish you can catch includes Snapper, Grouper, Kingfish, bull Shark, Hammerhead Shark, Blacktip Shark, Amberjack, and Grey Triggerfish. Using light and heavy tackle, you can bottom fish, deep sea fish, troll, spin, and jig. You’re free to keep all legal fish you catch.

Your crew will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures as well as fishing licenses. After the trip, the crew can also clean and fillet your catch, completely free of charge. The only things you’ll need for the trip are some snacks and drinks.

Book today and join Dorado for a wonderful day in Alabama!
