Darknite Charters specializes in inshore fishing on the beautiful Alabama coast. Captain Richard targets a variety of species depending on the time of year and makes it a priority to help you catch fish and have fun in the process. All ages and experience levels are welcome.

You’ll be fishing on a 22’ Blazer that accommodates up to 4 guests. This bay boat is powered by a 200 HP Suzuki engine and a wireless trolling motor. Besides navigational electronics, the boat also features a live bait tank and a cooler.

Capt. Richard encourages his guests to experience a nighttime charter for Speckled Trout and Redfish. This can be some very exciting fishing and allows for numerous opportunities for trophy size catch. If you are an early bird rather than a night owl, try a day trip and get to see the historic Fort Morgan area while chasing Speckled Trout, Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, and even have possibilities of Tripletail. You’ll be fishing with primarily live bait, but artificial lures can be used if desired.

All rods, tackle, bait, licenses, and fish cleaning are included with the trip. Tips are always appreciated but never anticipated. Coolers and ice will be provided but please bring drinks and snacks if desired. Please do not bring additional coolers. A cooler is provided and to save on space, any additional coolers/ice chest will not be permitted on the boat. Alcoholic beverages are allowed, but no glass of any kind will be allowed on the boat.

If you’re bringing your children along, make sure to specify their age when you book. The captain will then be able to adjust your trip so that everyone enjoys it.

Darknite Charters welcomes you and your group aboard for a trip you’ll remember for a long time.

    Is your dream to catch a fish straight out of the movie “Jaws”? Come hop on the boat for an afternoon of shark fishing. We will be bottom fishing during these trips, so feel free to sit back and relax until an apex predator of the gulf takes the bait. These trips will target sharks anywhere from 4-10 feet long so be prepared to strap into a harness when the big one takes the bait. To aid with conservation efforts, all sharks will be released after a quick picture.
