Fins and Family Fishing's kayak fishing charters feature great light tackle saltwater fishing action with Captain Eddie Glass in Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan. Our year round Gulf Shores Kayak Fishing Charters focus mostly on fishing in the protected waters of lagoons, small bays, and tidal rivers but when conditions are calm we can fish large bays such as Mobile Bay and even the Gulf of Mexico. Considered best for one experienced adult weighing less than 300 pounds, our inshore and offshore kayak fishing charters feature four hours of pedaling and fishing.


All Gulf Shores kayak fishing charters will include an experienced captain, a comfortable 12.5 ft Native Slayer pedal drive kayak, quality rods and reels, ample bait and tackle, and fish cleaning and bagging. You will be required to purchase your own Alabama saltwater fishing license and bring along any snacks and drink you wish to consume while on your trip.

Our Inshore Kayak Fishing charters offer the opportunity to catch awesome saltwater fish such as Redfish, Speckled Trout, White Trout, Golden Croakers, Flounder & more. All Fins and Family Fishing kayak inshore fishing charters feature a light tackle approach since many of the fish we pursue inshore tend to be smaller species. But make no mistake, all species are tough and there are also a few big ones inshore mixed in as well. While it does not happen every day, we regularly catch species that can easily weigh more than thirty pounds on inshore trips. Our inshore fishing kayak trips often focus on areas such as Little Lagoon, the Bon Secour River, Oyster Bay, and the Intracoastal Waterway.

When inshore kayak fishing in the spring we often focus our fishing efforts on Redfish, Speckled Trout, Croakers, and White Trout. Our Summer season features the greatest variety of fish species that we have for the year and we frequently target Speckled and White Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, Flounder, Spanish Mackerel, and more. In winter our species are somewhat limited but do include some of our favorites such as Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and Redfish. Our favorite inshore fishing style is casting and trolling jigs but we also fish live baits or jigs under popping floats, cast artificial scent baits to the bottom, drift live and dead baits, and cast artificial lures and plugs. We use these techniques to fish sand bars, along salt marsh grasses, near bridges and passes, beside  docks, along jetties, and more.

Offshore kayak fishing charters are an absolute blast! Offered only when sea and weather conditions are predicted to be very calm, offshore kayak fishing charters are awesome! Offshore fishing kayak charters styles of fishing and fish we pursue vary based on the time of year, recent successes, wind and current, and whats in season. In winter and early spring we occasionally troll for Bull Redfish but we mostly fish light tackle bottom rigs for Sheepshead. From late May through early August we love trolling for Spanish and King Mackerel and some light line bottom fishing for Red Snapper.


Bottom fishing can produce some of the strongest fish you ever want to tangle with in a kayak. Red Snapper are typically the top prize bottom fishing offshore in summer but we also catch other awesome saltwater species such as Triggerfish, Black Snapper, and even sharks. Usually featured only on weekends in June and July, the state of Alabama enacts a brief state Red Snapper season which allow us the chance to catch one of the most beautiful fish in the gulf. Red Snapper are hard fighting and delicious and are lots of fun to tangle with in a kayak. Trolling fishing can be a relaxing way to fish the offshore waters. Trolling fishing begins with laid back low speed cruising pulling spoons, dusters, or jigs behind the kayak trying to attract some of the fastest swimming fish species in the gulf. But don't get too relaxed because when a fish strikes the adrenaline starts pumping and the fight is on! We often catch awesome saltwater species such as Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Bonita, Bluefish and the occasional shark while trolling in summer. 


In addition to trolling and bottom fishing our smaller groups sometimes fish flat lines and cast lures. Both jigs and Gotchas can be very effective in catching Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Bluefish and more. Flat lines can typically only be fished with smaller groups and if the wind and current are generally running the same direction but when we can do it the results are often amazing. Flat lining consists of taking a live, dead, or cut bait and floating it on a large circle hook in the waves with little to no lead so it floats near the surface. This allows us to fish the upper part of the water column most effectively. We often catch Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Bonita, sharks, and the occasional Cobia fishing flat lines. Many times the largest fish we catch on a charter is caught on a flat line. Fishing live and dead shrimp on carolina rigs on light spinning rods can also be effective for mackerel and can also help us catch Black Snapper, Pompano, Redfish, or Sheepshead.
