Make the most of your time in Gulf Shores and go fishing with Red Eye Charters. Having logged many hours on these tides, our Captains can tell you all about the local fishery.

Around here, fishing is popular for Kingfish, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Blacktip Shark, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, Red Snapper, and more if conditions are right. On these trips, you can expect to drift and bottom fish using light tackle. Any fish within the legal limit is yours to keep. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. Now that’s dinner!

Lil Red is a 24’ Kenner bay boat. It is a 1998 hull redone in the spring of 2023. This boat provides fishing opportunities to those who want to stay closer to shore and use light tackle to catch a variety of fish. Lil Red has a capacity for 4 passengers and everything else you need for a productive day on the water. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, as well as lures.

Looking to get the whole family outdoors? Kids are absolutely welcome! Children must wear life vests, so find out if the appropriate size is available on board. A few items to bring include snacks, drinks, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen (non-spray). Alcohol is allowed in moderation. Avoid hard liquor and glass bottles.

Live bait is available, but you should ask the captain whether you’ll be catching it yourself. Your fishing license for the day is covered by the charter boat, so all you have to do is look forward to your trip! Be mindful that some species may have special rules or limited seasons. Simply ask and your captain can tell you more.

Now and then, the fish might get away, but a day on the water never should. Time to make it happen with Red Eye Charters!
