Island Time Charters is your ticket for a good time if you’re in the market for some top-notch fishing out of Orange Beach, Alabama. Captain Frank Ford always goes the extra mile for his customers to make sure everybody’s having fun on the water. Whether you’re a veteran angler or someone who’s just getting started, you’re more than welcome aboard.

Capt. Frank’s boat is a 27’ Blazer Bay center console that’s powered by a single 350 HP Suzuki engine. She’s got plenty of room for up to 6 anglers, making it a great opportunity to bring the whole family along for a good time fishing. You’ll also find a wireless trolling motor on board, helping you sneak up on fish like nobody’s business.

Speaking of fish, there’s plenty of those around here. Your most common targets will be Redfish, Flounder, Sheepshead, Trout, Kingfish, Cobia, and many more besides. Both in the bays and nearshore waters a bit further out, Capt. Frank will help you find the best fishing spots around.

All the gear you could possibly need for the trip will be provided, including rods, reels, and terminal tackle. Not only that, but you’ll have your catch cleaned and bagged after the trip for no extra charge. All you need to do is put on a pair of polarized sunglasses and head on town for a trip you’ll remember for years to come.

I grew up Bass fishing. Love to fish. That's why I became a fisherman. Moved to Alabama coast and became a charter capt. of my business and really enjoy taking people fishing. Men, women, children of all ages are welcome. You know it's a great day when you see that look on the face of your customer when they catch their first fish ever or biggest fish or just happy to catch a fish.
