Bottom Fishing Charters
Bottom fishing charters for reef fish have been one of the most popular off-shore fishing trips for decades. Gulf of Mexico waters off the Alabama coast are a salt water anglers paradise, including fishing grounds of one of the world’s largest artificial reef zones (3108 km2, 20,000 structures). Since the 1950’s, our captains continue to invest in building these “private” fishing spots for their angler’s saltwater adventures. Our reefs have become the home to a diverse population of Reef Fish Species including snapper, groupers, amberjack and triggerfish. Click here to view the Deep Sea Bottom Fish we catch.
We have Fleets of Off Shore Fishing Vessels!
AAA Charters specializes in learning about your group of anglers to match you with a vessel, captain & crew that can provide your ideal fishing trip. Typical travel time to the first fishing spot is an 1 hr – 1½ hr. Once the captain has reached a reef, they will hover above and everyone has an opportunity to fish for the reef fish below. In order to maintain the sustainability of our fishery, we only remove a few fish from each habitat, and move on to another reef. We realize deckhands are crucial to your fishing experience. Our mates are there to demonstrate fishing techniques, educate your group to fish we target, and assist you throughout your fishing adventure.
