The waters of the Gulf of Mexico extending 9 Miles to 200 nautical miles off our shores and are currently regulated by the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council.

Saturday Jan 15 Inshore Fishing for 3 anglers with Captain Tom Myers

Three visitors from Georgia called AAA Charters looking for a fishing trip that same day because they were driving home that night. We made a round of calls and none of the local headboats had any where near enough to go fishing the next day. Eric was a bit disappointed but quickly became excited about the fishing trip we could arrange! They met Captain Myers at the dock at 9 AM in Orange Beach AL with a live well of live bait, the three men went in search of the fish! The day started a bit slow with a couple catfish taking the bait, but the tide began moving and the fish started biting! They caught quite a few sheepshead at the rocks in Perdido Pass and a few nice red drum (redfish) near the pass. Several AAA Charter Inshore Captains also report that the pompano bite is on. Pompano is a local favorite, and a glorious tasting fish! AAA Charters is always just a call away at 251-609-2525. Call to find out what is biting now.

Shared Expense 10 HR Deep Sea Fishing Trip Friday Oct 14 $250 each

Best of Fall Gulf of Mexico Deep Sea Fishing 10 HR Trolling & Bottom Fishing Combo

During recent years, the majority of AL deep sea fishing trips are six hour trips. This ten hour trip will give the Captain the opportunity to travel further offshore than the grounds most commonly fished by our fleet. The day will begin with near shore trolling, fishing with a bait line behind the moving boat for pelagic fish species such as spanish & king Mackerel (the bite of both species remains strong). Once the boat arrives above a reef, everyone will have the opportunity to fish at once targeting a wide variety of fish that live near these structures on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. This time of year we can harvest a variety of snappers including vermillion, lane, white & black snapper; groupers (gag & shallow water); and skamp. We will also be catch & releasing red snapper, amberjack, & triggerfish. Trolling continues as the boat returns to port. These eight hour trips offers a great opportunity to reel in a variety of fish while on a comfortable luxury fishing vessel with a crew focused on the enjoyment and success of the anglers aboard.

We offer fishing for individuals and small groups that are partnered with other anglers to charter a boat together. We offer shorter shared expense (semi-private/”walk-on”) charters trolling for near-shore pelagic species and well as longer combination trips that add bottom fishing for reef fish species.
