Doug Houston Outdoors is a charter service based in Dauphin Island, Alabama. Captain Doug heads a team of 7 captains who are all seasoned local fishermen and tournament winners and know these waters very well. Whether you want to do some fishing on your own or spend quality time with your family, they’ve got you covered.

You will be fishing aboard a 22’ Sea Hunt center console boat that is equipped with a 200 HP Yamaha engine that can have it speeding up to an impressive 45 knots. Apart from the regular safety and navigation equipment, the boat has a livewell for bait and a wireless trolling motor for when you need to run silent.

A typical trip will have you fishing the inshore and nearshore waters in the Gulf of Mexico for species like Redfish, Trout, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, Flounder, Cobia, and more besides. The captains are skilled in a variety of techniques that include fly fishing, but fly fishermen will need to bring their own gear.

Quality rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of the trip, and anything you catch during the trip will be cleaned and filleted for your convenience. It is highly recommended you bring a pair of sunglasses and sunscreen, as well as drinks and snacks if you’re so inclined. This charter is suitable for children aged seven and older.

Overall it was a great fishing experience. Captain Bobby was very knowledgeable and good host.  He took us several places to locate the fish.  Caught red speckled trout and a small shark. Lady fish were fun to catch. Overall a great experience.
