Southern Drawl Charters run near and offshore trips out of Alabama’s Gulf Shores that 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 35 ft Bertram flybridge boat that was fully restored in 2015. 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.

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.

We had a great time out fishing with Matt and Mason! They were great and made us feel right at home and we had a great catch!  They were especially great with our son and very reasonable on price.  Will definitely book with them again.  Thank you for the great memories!

Michael Pittman is the most personable charter captain i have ever been out with.  Energetic and upbeat, he put us on the fish and made sure we enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended.

Captain Mike - Loves what he does so it is not a job. Mike arrived right on time. Grew up in this area so he knows the history of the gulf area and where to fish. He knows how to handle his boat with the ocean currents. We went on night shark fishing trip.  Did not catch the big one, but caught about 12 sharks. Released all back to the ocean and had a great time. Knows how to fish and operate his boat. Friendly and will talk to the guest. We had 6 family members, which seem to be just right for the 35 foot boat. Do not let his price scare you. He is good and his prices are way to fair. Young and full of energy, and has years of oilfield big boat experience, so his little boat is of no concern. I would definitely book another trip with Captain Mike if we get back to gulf shores. Great attitude and ready to fish.
