If you’re looking for an autumnal adventure that’ll see you hooking into seriously impressive saltwater species, come down to Gulf Shores, located in Alabama, and join Reel Time Charters for a first-class fishing trip! With an experienced captain at the helm, you’ll be cruising the hottest fishing grounds for your dream catch – whether you’re a newbie or a seasoned angler, they’ll get you on fish!

As the captain has a federal Reef and Pelagic permit, you can go offshore in search of the fastest trophy fish! This also means you can keep Red Snapper 7 days a week, not just weekends!

You’ll be cruising the waters on your captain’s 30’ Contender, built to accommodate up to 6 anglers, with plenty of room on board for you to fish at the same time! She’s decked out with top-of-the-line navigational gear, including GPS and fishfinder to get you to the hotspots, as well as life jackets in a variety of sizes, and an icebox to store your catch. Get ready to fill it up!

The fishing grounds offshore are home to a real “who’s-who” of saltwater superstars. You’ll have the chance to jig, troll, spin, and even bottom fish for anything from huge Wahoo, to a variety of Snapper, including Red Snapper when in season. Besides these, you’ll target Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and whatever else is biting. Never fished before? Don’t worry! Your captain will show you the best techniques to use, and your hooks can be baited, unless you want to do it yourself.

Your trip includes top-notch Shimano rods and reels, live bait, a variety of tackle, and a valid fishing license. Come aboard Reel Time Charters – all you need to bring are your favorite snacks and drinks, and a passion for reeling in some incredible fish!

Reel Time Charters is a local charter business that's run by a captain who was raised on these waters. He's been fishing for over 20 years, starting when he was 10 years old. He grew up exploring saltwater fisheries with his grandparents, and loved every minute of it! As well as the fishing grounds of Alabama, he also spent time fishing in Savannah, GA, and uses the wealth of knowledge that he gained from these experiences to provide guests with top-notch angling adventures. His favorite part of the job is seeing other people catch fish! He also loves teaching his guests his favorite techniques, as well as local tips and tricks, to reel in their dream catch. Your captain also has some serious bragging rights under his belt, in the form of some impressive catches – he once reeled in a 100 lb Tuna!
