Russell’s Coastal Fishing offers inshore and nearshore fishing at its finest! Targeting everything from Mackerel to Sharks, their goal is to show their customers a great time with a memorable fishing experience along Alabama’s beautiful Gulf Coast. 

Your trip with them will take place aboard a 26 foot Angler Panga center console named Miss Caymen. This boat is great for families and serious anglers alike: its T-Top gives plenty of shade while the huge bow area has room for up to six people to fish and relax.

People of all ages are very welcome to come fishing with Russell’s Coastal Charters, and the crew do their best to provide everyone with the necessary amenities to suit their needs! Taking families who want to create an unforgettable vacation is the number one priority. 

As well as offering inshore fishing trips, Russell’s Coastal Charters also offers offshore trips, where you can bottom fish for Snappers and Groupers.

The charter service is located at the Flora Bama Marina right on the Alabama/Florida state line in Orange Beach, Alabama and they accept all forms of payment: cash, checks and/or credit cards. A 15-20% tip is customary.

“We look forward to meeting you and your family and showing you a great time on the water!”

We had a great fishing trip with Captain Ritchie.  He was professional and knowledgeable.  He knew where the fish were, and made sure our entire family had a great time and caught plenty of fish.
