Southern Bend Charters - 25'

26619 Perdido Beach Boulevard
Orange Beach AL, United States

Southern Bend Charters is a provider of inshore and nearshore fishing trips out of the world famous fishing destination of Orange Beach, AL. Fishing a wide range of habitats, from the murky flats and shallow backcountry out to the nearshore reefs and wrecks, you can expect to target anything from Pompano and Tarpon to King Mackerel and Mahi Mahi.

You will be fishing aboard a spacious 25 ft center console boat that has all the features you need for a productive day on the water. This custom-built boat was specifically designed to be as versatile a fishing platform as possible, able to get deep into the skinny waters of the Alabama backcountry, while still being stable enough for some fun fishing out in the bay.

What you target on your day with Southern Bend Charters is entirely up to you. Captain Landon plans each trip ahead of time with the client, and lays out all the potential options based on what has been biting best lately. Once on the boat, you will be supplied with high-quality light and heavy tackle, with the option to jig, spin, pop, drift or bottom fish, depending on what you are after.

If you’re in the area in April and May, Southern Bend Charters can also put you in the best place to catch a Cobia on their annual migration. The boat’s custom Cobia tower will give your captain an enhanced vantage point, putting you an excellent position to catch this coveted species.

All the equipment you need for a fun day fishing is included in the price of the trip, and Captain Landon also offers a fish cleaning and filleting service. Tipping is appreciated, with 15 - 20 % customary.

As soon as we stopped at our first spot the mackerel were hitting our lines. Probably brought in 15-20 in about an hour and a half. Captain really knew what he was doing but could have been a little more talkative/explained a little more about what he was doing. Overall great trip, brought home King and Spanish Mackerel as well as a couple Snapper.

One of the better fishing charters I have been on,A great boat to fish from,Captain Bell had the boat ready to go,had all the live bait we needed,knew the right places to go,first day we caught approx. 35 sheep head and a few reds,2nd day we got a few sea trout and some Pompano to bring home. The highlight of the trip was the the big redfish I caught. We were fishing for pompano and I hooked a large red fish very light spinning gear. It took me 20 minutes to land the fish and the Capt thought it was a ray. After running around the boat several times I got the fish to the surface. It was not a ray,it was a large red fish,close to 20 pounds,approx 34 inches,pictures taken and he was released to fight another day,lets just say the fish kicked my ass. Of all the fishing trips I have been on this will go to the top of my list!!!!!!!
