Southern Drawl (No fish, No pay)

(44) Going fast!
1577 Alabama 180
Gulf Shores AL, United States

Southern Drawl Charters is a federally permitted fishing charter in Gulf Shores, Alabama. Vessels with this type of permit are not restricted to fishing nine nautical miles from land - they can run 20-100 miles legally. Make sure if you are planning an offshore trip that the boat is federally permitted. There is a huge difference in fishing state waters and federal waters!

These trips are great fun for the whole family, while still providing some awesome fishing for veteran anglers. Whether you want to go dropping for Red Snapper, sight casting for Cobia, or trolling for King Mackerel, these guys have everything you need for a perfect day on the water.

You will be fishing aboard a 26 ft Robalo center console boat that was fully restored in 2017. She comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a livewell full of the best quality live bait, and everything you will need for a wide variety of fishing styles, including light and heavy tackle, trolling, bottom fishing, spinning, and much much more!

Captain Michael Pittman has over 15 years experience fishing the Gulf of Mexico, and knows the Gulf Shores waters as well as anyone. He loves being out on the water and helping others, especially children, to land some amazing fish, and he will do everything he can to make your trip special, from switching things up and heading to new spots as soon as the fish stop biting, to letting your kids have a go driving the boat!

All Southern Drawl trips come with fishing licenses for all on board and a free cleaning and filleting service for anything you want to take home.

Before You read this I should say one thing.. our motto that is plastered down the side of my boat is " we kill fish" if this offends you or your a fish lover this might not be the right boat to get on . Fishing is my life!! From the time I was 12 I was running a " Jon boat " around fishing every drop off I could find. Looking back I sure did push the limits. They say if you enjoy your job you never work a day in your life. Being on the water is in my blood I wouldn't want to do anything else. The adrenaline rush when you see someone hooked up with a fish never gets old too me. I'd rather watch other people catch them then myself. I can guarentee that I will do whatever it takes to put fish on the deck . i put in 110% and make sure every client has a great experience with lifetime memories. We also do tournament fishing with several wins in the last couple years. We catch fish plain and simple. Hope you choose us when booking your next trip! God bless

First let me say Capt. Mike is a true professional. His first thoughts are on the safety of his clients and crew.

We went for a 4 hour trip with my family. There was a storm in the area and Capt.Mke quickly brought that to my attention as I was the host.

We made a plan that included safety stops because the water was rough. I’m a seasoned fisherman and when I wanted to keep going but he made an alternative plan to put us on fish much closer. Not as big as his normal trips but the kids caught fish.

Two of our party had a hard time with the rough waters. Somehow Capt. Mike got us on the fish and limited out while attending to my daughters who were new to off shore fishing.

While Capt. Mike could have got us in deeper water he made the right call.

I will be his client from this point forward! He is an awesome guy and great guide. If you are looking for Red Snapper he is your guy. I also want to Redfish and he setup a guide for that trip. Very professional.

Thanks Capt. Mike for an amazing trip!
