Alabama Girl Fishing invites you to join them for a day out in the Gulf Shores. This is a family-oriented charter company that welcomes avid anglers and first-timers alike. If you want to enjoy a fun and productive time on the water, you’ve found the right place!

Captain Rick Murdoch will take you out on his 24’ Kenner center console. She comes powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine and can accommodate up to 6 anglers. Her top-notch navigational electronics include a VHF radio, a side scan, and many other professional accessories.

If you want to test the bite inshore, fish the calm waters of South Mobile Bay for Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Spanish Mackerel, and many more. Or head out and fish the edge of the Gulf Beach. If live bait is available, you’ll catch it on the way to your fishing grounds.

You’ll use light spinning tackle, suitable for all ages. All the necessary gear and tackle will be provided, as well as your fishing license. When you return to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and filleted, ready to take home, and go straight into the frying pan!

The captain works hard to make sure that you have a good time and a 20% gratuity is customary. Get out on the water and explore some of Alabama’s hottest inshore fisheries with Alabama Girl Fishing!
