Captain Wilder was great with our kids. His main boat broke down so we were in his smaller backup boat. We also moved to evening instead of morning, which turned out to be better to be out of the sun.

Be sure to make sure you are leaving from a marina near the place you are staying at. It is a long way around Mobile Bay and the ferry does not run very early in the morning. Also look for the red snapper season to be in if that is your target.

I ranked the fishing 'ok' because I did way better with catching my target species on my own than on the charter.

Go to the Marina and ask around about the different captains before spending a bag of money on a trip. Take online reviews with a grain of salt.

Plenty of sun screen and select captains who are knowledgeable of where to catch the type of fish you're after.

Be willing to be flexible with your fishing days. The weather in June is unpredictable with pop up thunderstorms.

Great fishing even though there was a fish kill the week before. Would like to see how good it could be without that.

Take lots of sunscreen and deep sea fishing is way more entertaining than pond fishing. A lot more excitement.

Use a charter, fishing from shore is more miss than hot. Also if you must fish from shore, research what to use and how.

Learn the area. Their are piers, jetties and public beach options to fish from as well as charters. As with any fishing, the time of year and bait used are important.

Snapper heaven. Best and most prolific Red Snapper haven on the planet. More structure in Alabama state water than all other gilf states combined. Dauphin Island is the Snapper capital of the world!
