Charter Fishing in Orange Beach, AL

Charter Fishing in Orange Beach, AL
This seaside town nestled on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico is a popular venue for anglers. The nutrient-rich Gulf waters draw big game sport fishers from around the country, who book offshore charters to catch trophy-size tuna, marlin, wahoo, swordfish, shark and sailfish. Surrounding inland waters are home to speckled trout, redfish, mackerel, sheephead, flounder and pompano. A variety of charter companies offer group and private fishing trips, including trolling, sight fishing and bottom fishing. After landing your limit, take your catch to a local "hook and cook" restaurant where they'll prepare it for you.
