Background
Bruce's Professional Guide Service is owned and operated by Captain Bruce Aldridge. He has been guiding fishing trips for the past 30 years and fished professionally for 10 years. The captain has been fishing in Alabama and Florida for years and started angling when he was 17. To him, fishing is more of a lifestyle than a sport. He considers himself to be blessed for being able to do what he loves and his favorite thing about the job is putting people on fish.

The captain loves to sight fish both inshore and offshore using spinning tackle. He enjoys bottom fishing with light tackle offshore as well.
