Big Job Charter offers exciting adventures for the big fish in and around Orange Beach, Alabama. Departing from Caribe Marina, you will be ready for a rod-bending action for Red Snapper, Tuna, Marlin, and many other species. Fish are never too young to go fishing!

You will go out aboard the “Big Job,” a 47’ fishing machine, which is a clean and seaworthy vessel. It comes powered by twin 450 HP Cummins engines and was fully uphauled in 2017. Perfect for accommodating up to 6 anglers, the Big Job is fully rigged with the latest navigational electronics and all safety equipment.

It is wheelchair-accessible and fitted with all you need for a comfortable day on the water. When relaxing in between the bites, you will be able to take in all the beauty of the surrounding waters while sipping your favorite drink. There is a flybridge to spot any action beneath the surface, as well as a fighting chair for those who are up to a challenge. Head inside to find an air-conditioned salon with beds, a multimedia system, and a full bathroom with a shower.

This is an exciting opportunity to get the thrill of catching the fish of a lifetime. The crew offers a large variety of trips to meet any angler’s needs. From 4 hours nearshore, trolling for Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and King Mackerel to 36 hours offshore for Yellowfin Tuna, Blackfin Tuna, Wahoo, Mahi-Mahi, White Marlin, and Blue Marlin. To make the list even more exciting, you will also be able to target Shark, Red Snapper, Grouper, Sailfish, and Amberjack.

All trips come with quality gear, tackle, bait, and license. The crew will clean and fillet your catch for free on the trips less than 8 hours long. You just have to bring your favorite drinks, food, and the desire to catch fish!

Explore the prolific waters off the coast of Orange Beach with Big Job Charter Fishing, and have a memorable day!
