Enjoy your fishing trip aboard a 36-foot Johnny Morgan boat, which is a well-maintained and spacious vessel.

Perfect for accommodating up to six anglers, the boat is fully rigged with all the necessary safety facilities and navigational electronics. There is a live well loaded with bait, along with an ice-box to keep your catch fresh until you return to the shore. Inside, the vessel is air-conditioned and is equipped with a toilet and a shower.

Fishing in Orange Beach with Captain Frankie is a fun experience for any angler. The trips start from a three-hour trolling adventure to the six-hour trolling and bottom fishing. The Orange Beach charters can be arranged as early as 6:30 in morning and later in the afternoon.

While waiting to hook a prize-worthy catch, you will be able to relax in comfort and share your fish stories with your friends and family. Fishing off the shore of Orange Beach is a rewarding experience, which can get your hands full of various species, depending on the season and what’s biting. Your targeted species will include Red Snapper, Sailfish, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel, Vermilion Snapper, King Mackerel, Black and Scamp Grouper, Cobia, Bluefish, and even Blacktip and Bull Sharks.

A fishing trip comes inclusive with quality rods, reels, tackle, lures, and bait, as well as licenses. Captain Frankie and his first mate will send your catch home cleaned so that you could try it for dinner later. You only need to bring some food and drinks with you.

I have fished in the Gulf of Mexico since I was a child. I first saw all the fish people were catching in the gulf at the dock and was absolutely hooked. I've taken approximately 4,000 paying charters out in the Gulf for hire over the years. I enjoy teaching people to fish and watching them have a fabulous time catching them.

We scheduled a three hour trolling trip for the afternoon. Two adults, and four boys.  What an afternoon!! Over forty keepers in three hours! We had great weather, and the fish were biting.  Capt Frankie and John were a great team.  They quickly found the fish, and kept our lines in the water.  Our boys had a fantastic time, and were catching fish faster than they could reel them into the boat!  We caught mostly Spanish Mackerel, with a few Kingfish.  This is a great trip for kids, and I highly recommend Fishin Magician Charters.  5 stars all the way around!!!!

If your are a die hard fisherman that is not into all the frills of more expensive outings then this is the trip for you. Capt. Frankie was focused on fishing and 1st mate John kept on top of 6 poles to make sure we were baited and ready for action. At the end of the day we stayed on the fish and were able to bring in a box full. Good job Capt. Frankie and John. Thanks for a making it happen!
