Specializing in private 6 hour and 4 hour, Back Bay and Inshore fishing trips in Orange Beach.
Inshore - Bay Fishing
One of the most popular fishing charters in Orange Beach is the inshore and back bay fishing trip. We have two companies to choose from. They are: Alabama Inshore Fishing Charters and JayHook Charters. They both serve Orange Beach and Mobile Bay areas. These back bay boats do not have restrooms, but you are only minutes away from land or Orange Beach marinas when fishing. These boats are 22 to 24 feet in length and are center consoles. This means you can walk around the boat while inshore fishing. These boats can carry up to 6 passengers per charter, but they are more comfortable if you have 4 people. That way you don't have to cast over someone else's line each time. The inshore boats offer 4 and 6 hour trips. They fish near the jetties, under bridges, under piers, near channels, drop offs, structure or simply drift fish over oyster reefs. When fishing is tough in Orange Beach, these boats may have to move and be picked up from a nearby dock where the fish bite is better. Their goal is to put you on the fish and sometimes, you have to be flexible and move if you want to catch them. Inshore fishing usually catches fish like Speckled Trout, Redfish, Pompano, Black Drum, White Trout and Sheepshead. The prices for a 4 hour inshore charter is $450 plus tip for 4 people. If you have extra people up to 6 max, add $100. 6 Hour is $650 for 4 people. If you have more than 4 people, add $100. If you want to go inshore fishing, please fill out our inshore bay fishing reservation form and choose Alabama Inshore or Jayhook Charters and submit this form. You may only choose one boat for your reservation to be submitted to. However, you are welcome to hit the back button and choose the other boat and submit the form again to send to your other choice. Both companies are excellent, but they fish all day long.
