Join Powers Fishing Charters and explore the deep waters of Alabama out of Orange Beach! Captain Ronald Powers comes from a long line of fishermen, a true Alabama native with over 30 years of experience under his belt. He knows all the best spots and how to fish them most effectively, and will always have a trick up his sleeve if the fish stop biting.

His 23’ Polar center console boat is the best of both worlds! It has a shallow enough draw to get into some of the skinnier waters, while still being stable enough to get out away from the shore to land some delicious Snapper. Up to 6 guests are welcome on board, so it’s a great choice for a group of friends or a family.

Everything you will need for your day of adventure will be on board, including top-of-the-line fishing gear, as well as a range of lures. You’ll be able to test out different techniques like trolling, spinning, jigging, and bottom fishing. If you’re up for a nice dinner upon your return, Capt. Ronald will be happy to clean and fillet your catch.

Powers Fishing Charters offer great value trips out of the Orange Beach area. Inshore you’ll fish for a great variety of species such as Redfish, Speckled Trout, King Mackerel, and Flounder. You can also take short offshore trips specifically targeting Snapper. These waters are brimming with life, so there’s always something to target!

Turn this into a great educational experience by bringing your kids with you, so you can make some amazing new family memories. Make sure to bring some food and drinks to stay refreshed, as well as some sunscreen so you can relax under the hot Alabama sun.

Come to Orange Beach and let Powers Fishing Charters show you some of the best fishing in Alabama!
