Southern Drawl (No fish, No pay)

Southern Drawl Charters specializes in trips are great fun for the whole family, while still providing some awesome fishing for veteran anglers. Whether you want to go dropping for 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 24’ Kenner center console boat that was built in 2007. She comes equipped with a 225 HP Suzuki engine, 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. Come on down and make some memories together with your friends and loved ones.

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, and I wouldn't want to do anything else. The adrenaline rush when you see someone hooked up with a fish never gets old to me. I'd rather watch other people catch them than myself! I put in 110% and make sure every client has a great experience with memories that'll last a lifetime. I love trolling for big King Mackerel, sight fishing for Cobia (my favorite), and bottom fishing for Red Snapper.
