Alabama Fish On Family Charters LLC

Alabama Fish On Family Charters specializes in exciting fishing adventures out of Orange Beach. Whether it’s introducing kids to fishing or a family gathering or just a fun day out - Captain Chris will accommodate any of your needs!

Step aboard a spacious 30-foot Crosby boat, which comes powered by twin 170 HP Yanmar engines. Perfect for accommodating up to six anglers, the boat is rigged with all the necessary navigational electronics, such as a GPS, a VHF radio, a fish finder, and a radar. As well as that, the vessel is equipped with safety equipment and a toilet - a much needed thing for a pleasant experience on the water.

Orange Beach in Alabama offers exciting fishing opportunities, especially for a group of friends or a family. If you want to introduce your kids to fishing, a four-hour trolling trip is the best choice. And if you are one of those passionate anglers who just want to have the waters all to themselves, a six-hour bottom fishing package will be ideal.

Your targeted species will depend on the season and will include Red Snapper, Cobia, King Mackerel, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, Sheepshead, and who knows what else you may hook into?

If you have never held a fishing rod in your life, Captain Chris will gladly show you the ropes. Your age and expertise don’t matter: from beginner to seasonal angler to pro, everyone will get a chance to have a memorable day out catching fish.

All trips come inclusive with rods, reels, tackle, and licenses for you and your group. If you decide to keep the catch, it can be cleaned and filleted after the trip. You will need to bring your favorite drinks and food with you, along with sunglasses and sunscreen.
