Southern Drawl (No Fish, No Pay)

406 Dolive Avenue
Dauphin Island AL, United States

Southern Drawl Charters makes it their first priority that every single customer has a great experience aboard their boat, especially the children! They devote a lot of time and energy into making sure kids have an amazing time, teaching them about all the instruments and controls, as well as letting them steer it. This is something they will never forget!

As well as being child-friendly, Southern Drawl Charters also caters to avid anglers. The crew’s in-depth knowledge of the local waters is impressive: they fish the area very regularly and are in-tune with the best hotspots on any given day. The team has multiple tournament wins under their belts, and they use top of the line equipment aboard their vessel to make sure you are in with the best chance of catching fish.

During your trip, you will be fishing aboard a newly-restored Robalo center console that is powered by a brand new Yamaha outboard engine. Accommodating up to six passengers, the boat has plenty of room to fish, and it features a toilet so you will not need to cut your trip short to come back to the shore.

All trips come complete with the use of professional fishing equipment, bait, and lures, and the company will also provide everyone onboard with a valid fishing license. Get ready to feel the salty wind in your hair. Take a trip with a crew that will do everything in their power to provide you with a trip to remember.

All you need to bring is a sense of adventure!

Once you are boarded on the boat we head due south , ( the boat is fast) we will target what Alabama is known for the famous hard fighting and delicious to eat RED SNAPPER.

    Do to us having the speed, equipment and permits we are able to keep red snapper certain times of the year when some outfitters can’t! This trip doesn’t have a time limit .The way this trip works is once you have a limit of legal red snapper we come back to the dock , I encourage atleast 4 people on the boat. Sometimes we have a limit in 30 minutes sometimes it takes 3xs as long. Beat the heat with an evening trip ( it is possible to catch other species.

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

The title describes everything!  Captain Mike and Junior deserve more than 5 stars!  Captain Mike was very knowledgeable, kind and professional.  When we got to our first spot, we immediately started to catch BIG Red Snappers!  It was an unbelievable experience.  I can’t wait to go back for a full day or an overnight trip with him.  I recommend this trip if you’re really into fishing, Captain Mike makes sure you get the biggest ones in the area!
