Fishin Magician Charters specialize in half day trips full of action and adventure out of Orange Beach, Alabama. Captain Frankie and his crew have over 35 years of experience fishing the local waters. The company is family-oriented, striving to provide an action-packed and enjoyable experience to all of their guests.

Enjoy your fishing trip aboard a 36-foot Johnny Morgan boat, which is a well-maintained and spacious vessel. Originally built in 1989, it was upgraded in 2017 and comes powered by a 375 HP Caterpillar engine. 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.
