4 Hour Offshore Fishing Charter 1-3 Persons $650 ($50 per additional person)

A Fins and Family Fishing four hour Orange Beach state waters offshore fishing charter is the shortest offshore fishing experience we offer and is considered an introductory offshore experience. State of Alabama waters focused offshore fishing charters will take us up to nine miles offshore and often out of sight of land. Four hour state waters offshore fishing charters are a good choice for adults and families with kids around fourteen years of age and older who wan a small sample of fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. 

 

Offered year around our private offshore fishing charters often include both trolling and bottom fishing for a variety of species. Our fishing locations and methods of fishing vary greatly based on the time of year, what's biting, and composition of the group aboard.

Both our morning and afternoon Four Hour Offshore Fishing Charters begin with an exciting ride offshore looking for Sea Turtles, Dolphins, and schools of feeding fish.  If we see fish on the surface that we are targeting we often take a detour and cast or troll through the schooling fish. If we do not see anything significant enough to alter our course on the way out we continue our run towards our reef fishing spots. Once we reach our desired fishing location we will share with your crew the fun and excitement of bottom fishing. We often focus mostly on the species that are currently in season for harvest but we also catch other amazing offshore fish in the process.

 

Spring offshore fishing can be fun and very rewarding. Several species including Gray Triggerfish, Red Snapper, and the occasional Amberjack pull our strings March and April. While these species are not legal for harvest in the spring of most years, the are very fun to catch and release. If keeping a few fish for dinner is part of your group's goal then we would suggest we pursue the small but tasty Vermillion or Beeliner Snapper. Found mostly in Federal waters, Vermillion Snapper are among the most tasty fish in the gulf. Late spring also begins the return of our warm water Migratory Pelagic species such as Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, and Cobia. Mackerel are often caught trolling, casting jigs, and free lining live shrimp. Cobia fishing often requires a bit of patience and luck but if you are fortunate enough to catch one you will surely agree it is worth the lengthy pursuit. Unique, delicious, and incredibly strong, the Cobia is the top prize in springtime offshore fishing.

 

Summer marks the beginning of our best fishing season of the year. It also ushers in the season for the most popular fish along the northern Gulf of Mexico. Both state and federal Red Snapper seasons traditionally open for harvest in early June. Federal Red Snapper Season is open seven days a week while state of Alabama waters are most commonly only open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. While most of our offshore fishing charters in summer focus primarily on Red Snapper, we do frequently carch other species such as Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Bonita, Triggerfish, and sharks. In addition we have the occasional hook up with a lost Grouper, a renegade Mahi-Mahi, a migrating Cobia, or a Vermillion Snapper or two.

 

Fall fishing offshore in state and waters is traditionally an extension of the bite from summer. Red Snapper are no longer available for harvest but we do still catch and release them along with Triggerfish as we fish for other species. Trolling for Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel headline the fall season and we add the occasional Black Snapper to the list.

 

Winter offshore fishing charters can be among the best of the entire year! Catch and release species such as Red Snapper, Amberjack, and Triggerfish come closer to shore in the winter making them easier to catch and accessible for both federal and state offshore charters. Fish that we can keep in the winter such as Vermillion Snapper also venture closer to shore and can often be caught in state waters. Grouper always prefer cooler deeper waters but they do come closer to the shore in the winter than any other time of year. We do not often catch them on short state waters offshore charters but when we do it is often in winter. While w do some trolling in winter for Redfish we focus most on bottom fishing, jigging spoons, chunking, chumming, and flat lining with baits such as squid and cigar minnows. Winter offshore fishing charters generally offer the most fishing time of any season due to shorter rides to the fish in the winter.

Once we reach our desired fishing location we will share with your crew the fun and excitement of fishing styles such as bottom fishing, fishing drift lines, jigging, knocker rigs, and more.
