The smaller half to Riptide Charters, this boat is a 38’ Michael Fitts that’s great for inshore and offshore fishing. Equipped with all the appropriate navigational gear and the full complement of first aid and safety equipment, this sportfishing boat is a great base for a half and 3/4 day fishing trips. Praised for its excellent ride, the boat will offer a smooth and stable trip out to your fishing destination.

Riptide Charters specializes in providing a good time, focusing on quality fishing trips that are fun for all involved. An inshore fishing trip with the company could involve fishing for a variety of species, including Sheepshead, White Trout, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Redfish.

The captain might take you to any of the great inshore fishing locations in the area, including going out through the Perdido Pass to Perdido Bay or traveling into the massive Mobile Bay or staying close to Orange Beach. 6 hr trips offer nearshore bottom fishing or trolling for King and Spanish Mackerel. The location will depend on the season, weather and conditions, and most importantly on where the fish are biting at the time.

Quality Shimano and Daiwa tackle is provided on board, as are bait, lures, and fishing licenses for all involved. Please remember to dress appropriately for the conditions and bring your own snacks and drinks.

I grew up fishing out of Orange Beach, with all of my spare time being spent on the docks of Sportsman's Marina catching Flounder, White Trout, and Croaker. My hobby later turned into a career, after I spent time charter fishing with some of the greatest captains in the area. I now own and operate the Riptide, a 45' Resmondo that specializes in big fish and family fun!!
