Background
Before You read this I should say one thing.. our motto that is plastered down the side of my boat is " we kill fish" if this offends you or your a fish lover this might not be the right boat to get on . Fishing is my life!! From the time I was 12 I was running a " Jon boat " around fishing every drop off I could find. Looking back I sure did push the limits. They say if you enjoy your job you never work a day in your life. Being on the water is in my blood I wouldn't want to do anything else. The adrenaline rush when you see someone hooked up with a fish never gets old too me. I'd rather watch other people catch them then myself. I can guarentee that I will do whatever it takes to put fish on the deck . i put in 110% and make sure every client has a great experience with lifetime memories. We also do tournament fishing with several wins in the last couple years. We catch fish plain and simple. Hope you choose us when booking your next trip! God bless

I love trolling for big King mackerel, sight fishing for cobia (my favorite) and bottom fishing for red snapper

We were on fish within 30 minutes. As a fisher woman for many years, I was thrilled we had such a knowledgable captain. This was the trip I hoped for and more. The snapper were biting like mad and we caught a 38” Sow Snapper ! My daughter had a blast and he took care of her making sure she fished safely and learned about bait, knots, lures etc. I am booking our trip for next year!

Amazing!!! Definitely exceeded expectations!!! Cannot say enough good things about our fishing trip! It was our first time out and we took our 6 year old son.  Michael told us we would have a fish hooked right away and he wasn’t joking! We all had a fish on our first line drop with my son reeling in a 20+ pound red snapper on the first try!!! Which he then proceeded to catch 3 more that size!!! My husband and I were definitely showed up by our 6 year old! Michael and Mason were beyond amazing helping him and instilling an even greater love for fishing in him! We cannot wait to come back… Michael will be the only one we fish with!!! This was definitely the high light of our vacation- thanks again so much!!!

She and her friend were thrilled with every catch they made, and Mike and Mason were there to help. The boat is the perfect size for a family of 4, and Mike got us out quickly to our fishing spot. Mike and Mason were so professional, helpful and fun! I will book with them again in the future

More importantly, if you’re going to spend 6 hours on a boat with someone, Mike’s the guy to do it with. Very personable, easy going and he was great with my young son. I’ll definitely drive back to Alabama just to fish with Mike again!

I and 5 kids went fishing with Michael today.  He was friendly, knowledgeable, and met us right where he said he would.  After a short drive to the fishing spot, all 5 kids hooked into fish within the first 30 seconds!  (I don’t think this is normal, but it really was our experience) Everyone caugjt their limit of Red Snapper.  The smaller boat was nice because it was just us and the captain, not elbow-to-elbow with strangers like on the bigger boats.  Michael cleaned and bagged our fish when we got back, and we were done.  Great trip, great fishing, great price.

Michael Pittman was at the dock waiting for us when we arrived 15 minutes early. We loaded up and were gone by 6:30. We traveled an hour to his secret spot. He baited us up, we circled again to be on top of the fish and he said “Drop’em”. We did and instantly started catching fish.
We had 6 people on-board and a pole at each corner was being manned. Michael let you do the work which is what we like.
Michael is a friendly easy going guy. He’s efficient and knows his stuff. When we returned to the dock he filleted the fish without a problem.
We all enjoyed the trip and would do it again in a heart beat.

Captain Mike and his brother, deck hand, Mason make sure your trip meets all expectations. They are pleasant and professional. They check in with their passengers to make sure they are having a good time and they FIND FISH. Southern Drawl has quality rods, tackle and bait to catch whatever is biting that day.

Captain Mike will not keep you in one spot waiting for action. It the fish are not biting, he moves on and FINDS where they are biting. If you are an experienced angler he will leave you to it. If you are not, he will get you set up so you can drop a line.

We caught our quota of red fish and it was time to start back, but Captain Mike saw some activity in the water. He circled back and we dropped a line. We got a huge bite. It ended up being a 60lb Cobia!!! It was huge! He wrangled it into the boat. That happened because he knew something was down there and he took the extra effort to circle back even when our time was running out

If you want to catch fish and experience Southern hospitality, Southern Drawl should be your first choice.

Oh did I forget to mention they clean your fish very well and quickly! Thanks Captain Mike and Mason. We had a memorable experience!

He is very knowledgeable in All aspects of fishing. He did whatever he could to ensure our enjoyment. I have told my family, friends, and everyone I come across, all who will listen of the time my sons and I spent with Captain Pittman and how much he did to make that night one in million.

Captain Mike - Loves what he does so it is not a job. Mike arrived right on time. Grew up in this area so he knows the history of the gulf area and where to fish. He knows how to handle his boat with the ocean currents. We went on night shark fishing trip.  Did not catch the big one, but caught about 12 sharks. Released all back to the ocean and had a great time. Knows how to fish and operate his boat. Friendly and will talk to the guest. We had 6 family members, which seem to be just right for the 35 foot boat. Do not let his price scare you. He is good and his prices are way to fair. Young and full of energy, and has years of oilfield big boat experience, so his little boat is of no concern. I would definitely book another trip with Captain Mike if we get back to gulf shores. Great attitude and ready to fish.

The trip of a lifetime! Captain Mike is a fun loving, fish-finding, limit maxing machine :) I booked a six-hour trip through fishingbooker.com for my wife’s birthday, and Captain Mike, with Southern Drawl Charters went far above and beyond to make our adventure unforgettable.

Captain Mike called us in advance to give us a few tips in order to make the most of the trip and solidify the details. Not only was he on time, but he was there early and had us speeding out into the open waters right away! Within an hour and a half, my wife and I had maxed out our Snapper limit, and caught the biggest fish of our lives!

We spent the remainder of the trip trolling, laughing and enjoying sights we had never seen before… and we were still catching fish! Never again will I need to search for hours to find the perfect deep sea fishing excursion! After three deep sea fishing trips off Orange Beach, I finally know exactly who to call for the most fun, action-packed, and affordable adventure!

The boat was fast and spacious, with all the necessary accommodations, and the equipment was top notch! No worries booking with Southern Drawl Charters and Captain Mike! He’s serious when he says he loves to see his clients catch big fish! I can’t wait to come back and see what we reel in next year!

Michael and crew are all about finding you the fish and making sure you have a great time.  I couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience.  We had fish on the line every other minute!

Southern Drawl Charter is the boat to be on. Our last trip out marks the third trip I’ve had with Capt’ Mike , and he has never let us down. We set out for a 6 hour ” fun in the sun ” trip and loaded the boat. After only 10 minuets of being on the reef we started reeling in monster red snapper . We reached our snapper bag limit within a hour and a half. Next we headed out to load up the boat with vermillion snapper and ended up landing a cobia as well. We finished off the day trolling for big kings and laneded a handful to wrap up the day. Dollar for dollar the best trip I’ve had. Awesome day on the water .Thanks again Capt. We are planning our next trip now.
