Middle Bay Fishing Charters

Middle Bay Fishing Charters provides guided fishing trips for everyone who wants to come aboard, from the avid fisherman to families with kids. They are based out of Fairhope, Alabama, and fish the inshore areas in and around Mobile Bay and Orange Beach.

The company fishes aboard a 22 ft Pathfinder, which is well adapted to inshore fishing. The boat is equipped with a GPS and fishfinder to put you on the fish, and it has ample dry storage for your belongings, as well as an ice box to keep your catch in the best condition. Powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine, the boat travels quickly to the best fishing spots in the area, and can comfortably accommodate up to four anglers.

Your trip will involve inshore fishing with light tackle for a variety of local species, including Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Tripletail. Fishing the amazingly productive Mobile Bay, you will be well placed to catch all these species and more with live bait and artificial lures.

Everything you need throughout the trip will be supplied by Middle Bay Fishing Charters, including bait, tackle, ice, and fish cleaning. All you need to bring is any drinks and snacks you will need during the trip, as well as appropriate clothing for the conditions.
