Southern Drawl (No Fish, No Pay)

(25) In demand!

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!

    The difference in a 4-hour trip and 6-hour trip is the time to cull the smaller snapper back while boxing the bigger ones. You'll still have a shot at targetting different species while fishing for Snapper. Capt. Mike has an impeccable record with Snapper on all of his trips. Once you reach the limit for snapper, you'll chase other species such as Cobia or Kingfish. Your captain is federally licensed, so you can keep Snapper from June 1st - July 21st!

    Snapper fishing is just as good at lunchtime as it is in the morning! Your captain will put you on fish very quickly. After you board, you'll head due south and target Alabama's famous, hard-fighting and extremely delicious Red Snapper. If the water clarity is right, you can try your luck with Cobia or Kingfish along the way. 4-5 hours is just enough time for an awesome boat ride, plenty of fishing, and some great family pictures!

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.
