The boat was fine and the captain was very nice. The deckhand was not very personable and this really was not fishing.  We expected that we would actually be able to hold the rod and reel if we caught a fish.  We are all fairly experienced fishermen. However, when a fish got on the line, we weren’t even allowed to pick up the line and reel it in. All we did was turn the crank on the reel. We couldn’t even hold it. When we turned the crank and the fish got near the boat, the deckhand would pick up the rod, take the fish off the hook, and put the fish in the cooler. That all happened in the span of about 10 to 15 seconds.  He would put the lure back in the water and set the reel.  Then he would go back into the cabin, sit down and wait for another fish to strike.  He caught plenty of fish..  We felt like we were just on a very expensive boat ride. The captain told us that if we really wanted a fishing experience, we would need to take the longer charter that would bottom fish in deeper water..  I would not recommend the shorter charter that we took. This really wasn’t fishing.

This was a first time deep sea fishing trip for three out of the four in our group. We were all very impressed by our deck hand, David! He was super nice, and knowledgeable. He never once got frustrated with us first timers. We all agree that we would definitely do it again, Thanks Fish Trap!

My 2 boys (ages 13 & 7) and I, along with my father-in-law & brother-in-law had a great time! It was everyone’s first time to go on a deep sea fishing trip and we loved it. Captain Al put us right on the fish, and Jimmy, his deckhand, were great with both of my boys. He gave them special attention. We even caught a 7ft bull shark, and my boys loved it. We had an awesome time, and we will definitely do it again. The boat was in great shape, and the tackle worked perfectly.

We booked the Fish Trap at the last minute two days before we arrived in Orange Beach. We were set up and ready to go!! The Captain took us to several spots to ensure we caught the biggest fish for our limits. He was very knowledgeable about the locations where the fish were at !!! Four of us caught over 50 snapper before ending up with 8 at almost 20 lbs each !!  Deck Hand was very helpful and never slowed down. They cleaned our fish back at the dock and one of the owners, Karen, met us at the dock with some homemade dip made from Smoked Rec Snapper Throats !!! It was restaurant quality and awesome!! Great trip, crew and experience. Would definitely go with them again !!!

We came to orange beach to do a deep sea fishing trip over Memorial Day weekend for my brothers bachelor party. Captain Al and crew were completely first class. I’ve been on several deep sea fishing trips and don’t think that I’ve ever had as pleasant an experience as this trip. He has been fishing the gulf for over 10 years and it shows. The fish were biting at every one of the locations that he took us to. The fish cleaning was included which is a huge perk as well. Finally when we thought that the service could not get any better, they out did themselves by greeting us on the dock upon our return with home made smoked red snapper dip. I will be looking forward to my next trip down to orange beach to go fishing with Captain Al and crew again.

Booked a half day of trolling trip with my son, nephew, friend and his daughter.  Was our first experience fishing in the Gulf, and had a great time.  Spoke with Captain Al (fellow native Michigander) on the phone and his wonderful business partner Karen.  They were very curtious and pleasant to work with.  After a reschedule of the original date due to high winds (Captain Al called us personally to work out the schedule) we met up with Captain Ed and his deck hand, Kevin.  Both were very helpful and explained a lot during the trip.  Caught some Makerel, which Kevin helped to pull into the boat, and he also spent some time in the tower, braving the wind, looking for Kobia.  Kevin also cleaned the fish, which we ate for lunch that afternoon.  Nothing like fresh fish.  Great trip.  Thank you Fish Trap, Captain Ed, Kevin and Captain Al for a great time.  I highly recommend Fish Trap Charters.
