Great fishing trip. Brian took us out near shore where my son and his friend were able to catch a lot of Spanish Mackerel. When the action slowed down we went to a place where my son was able to land a nice redfish and we also caught Flounder, Mangrove Snapper, Amberjack and a few others.  On our way back in we stopped and caught a mangrove Snapper. It was a great day fishing.

Captain Brian is an awesome Guide all around good guy took us out to catch some big snapper even tho we had to throw them back cause out of season. But he also made sure we caught some keepers to take home. I really enjoyed it and so did my dad and son. My son has already decided his 16th birthday will be on a trip with captain Brian!!

Captain Brian “Smokey” Wass was my guide. Our offshore trip seen tough conditions. It was my first time to go after Red Snapper & the last week for Red Snapper in AL. Smokey was a good teacher despite the yo-yo motion of the boat. I learned after a while what little bait bandits those Triggerfish are. After getting 3 Snapper (2 to keep for limit) and 1 Triggerfish to throw back (out of season) we went back inshore to the harbor where I caught some little fish. This day the gulf could have been called The Rough Of Mexico. The experience of the guide made a good trip out of what could have been a bad day. I wanted to fry & eat ole Trigger after all the bait him & his buddies stole from us. The Reds were delicious off the grill. Thanks Ronald & Smokey. The trip was fun.

The captain needed to be more experienced fishing in this area. I didn’t need a tour of the shore line I live here and wanted to catch some nice fish to cook for dinner. We only caught a couple tiny fish not even worth keeping. I could have walked to all the fishing spots he brought us to but I guess you get what you pay for.

Captain Brian has been fishing this area his entire life as well as I the owner of the business. Some of the very best inshore fishing spots are structures close to shore. Inshore fishing can be slow like any other fishing excursion. We do our best every trip, we want to catch as many fish as possible. Inshore fishing is always close to shore on rocks, grass flats, or docks. Offshore would be more out in the gulf away from shore. Offshore maybe more what you are looking for in the future, thanks

Our trip started a little slow and we needed up getting hit by a storm.  Smokey was awesome about it and after it passed we were on the fish and we caught fish after fish. I would definitely recommend and I will be back for another trip.

Brian was a great captain. He got us on a lot of fish. My whole family had a great time. Broke several lines, landed our limit, and saw great sea life. We would recommend Brian”Smokey” Hess again as a captain.

The captain was great!  Very personable and helpful with the kids.  The boat was a little rough and lacking enough seats for 6 however the cooler made a decent seat.  We caught our limit of fish and even caught some large snapper for state waters.  All in all, we were happy with the trip.  I do wish boat owners would actually put you in contact with the actual captain of the boat to discuss trip details prior to the trip.

Brian is great.  We had a slow start to the day, but he was able to maneuver us to the right spots to get into some good action.  This is the best value in the Orange Beach area, and with Brian on board, it was the best value as well.  He helped us to learn about the area, how to present to the fish, never complained about anything.  Will definitely book with Powers again when we return.

We took a 4 hr morning trip and had a great time.  Our captain was Bryan and he did a great job.  Very knowledgeable and lots of fun.  We didn’t catch some of the really big fish, but that’s just how it goes sometimes.  We did catch quite a few and took a good mess of fish home to cook.  Very enjoyable trip and we will book again with Powers.

My only complaint was I did not know I had to pay cash for the remainder of the balance there was not any communication there I had to go to ATM and pay a surcharge

I just wish that was known prior
Not a good fishing trip for me I only caught 1 fish but that’s the way it goes I guess
