Southern Bend Offshore Charters operates out of Orange Beach, AL, offering high-action adventures to the best offshore and reef fishing grounds. The rich area waters will allow you to target a range of species, allowing you to customize your trip to best suit your wishes and the skill level of your group.

You will be fishing aboard the flagship of the Southern Bend fleet the “Miss Ginger”. It’s a 30’ Island Hopper sportfishing boat with plenty of room aboard for 6 anglers. She features a comfortable, air-conditioned interior and a head for extra convenience on longer trips. The vessel also boasts a large flybridge where you can relax and enjoy the stunning views on your way to and from the fishing grounds.

Orange Beach is widely recognized as possibly the best fishing location in the whole of the Alabama Gulf Coast. It enjoys great fishing from a few inches of water in its remote backcountry and unbeatable access to the very heart of the Gulf of Mexico. Here, you’ll be able to choose from a list of targets including Snapper, Grouper, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and more.

You will be provided with nothing but the best fishing equipment, with a choice of light and heavy tackle, and live bait or lures. Depending on your target species you can spend the day spinning, jigging, trolling, or bottom fishing. Captain Landon’s skilled first mate will bend over backwards to give you an unforgettable time on board, heading home at the end of the day with aching arms and awesome fish!

So block out a day in the captain’s calendar, get your group together and join Southern Bend Offshore Charters for an adventure you won’t forget!
