Winter is a great time of the year for Back Bay Fishing Charters with an experienced AAA Charters Fishing Guide

Back Bay Charters typically stay in the calm back waters of the AL Gulf Coast and offer a very interactive day of fishing with a professional Captain who will personally demonstrate and educate you how to hook and catch one of the abundant fish that make our back bay fishing famous. Experienced anglers will enjoy fishing with a pro. The maximum capacity per boat is 6, but multiple boats can be booked to accommodate larger groups.

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.

Great Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Trip – 8HR Trolling & Bottom Fishing Combo

AAA Charters offers Shared Expense (Semi-private Walk-on) Fishing Charters all year & Fall can be Fabulous Fishing

Deep Sea fishing along the Alabama Gulf Coast has drawn visitors to the communities of Orange Beach AL and Gulf Shores AL for decades. Fall is a favorite time of the year along the Alabama Gulf Coast for many, both visitors and locals. The peak of our tourist season has passed, the weather can offer highs in the 70-80 degrees and low in the mid 60’s. It is also a great time of the year for fishing!
For many, a fishing trip is a highlight of their vacation, but not everyone is in the position to hire a boat for themselves. 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. Alabama’s Artificial Reef Zone with over 20,000 reefs that are ideal habitats for the treasures of the reef fishery and can be reeled in year round and our captains can take you to the fish.

Shared Expense 8 HR Deep Sea Fishing on the Luxury Charter Boat Big Adventure Tuesday Oct 11 ’16 $180/anger

Big Adventure charter boat is a 60′ Sportfisherman featuring a spacious deck, air conditioned cabin, marine head, stereo, and featuring a BIG GREEN EGG SMOKER.This crew is highly experienced fishing the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. During recent year, the majority of AL deep sea fishing trips are six hour trips. This eight hour trip will give Captain Jimmy Waller 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.

Captain George Pfeiffer was born and raised in the beautiful Florida panhandle city of Pensacola. He has lived on the water all his life and worked for his father who was in the boat business from 1954 until 2004, when he passed away. Captain George started fishing off his own dock on the emerald coast when he could barely hold a fishing pole. Since then, he has fished all of northwest Florida, Alabama, and the Mississippi Delta. He has fished everything from the rivers, to the backbays, to the beautiful blue offshore waters in the Gulf of Mexico. While still employed with his father in the boat business, Captain George fished commercially for Red Snapper from Panama City, Florida to the Texas Gulf Coast. Captain Pfeiffer also fished for years on the party boat the Moreno Queen. This crew has access to decades of fishing spots built in the Gulf of Mexico and can put anglers on the fish!
