Perched on Alabama’s Gulf Coast, with the warm waters of its scenic bays and bayous full of prized fish, Orange Beach is a great place for embarking on a private charter fishing adventure.
There are excellent fishing locations dotted all the way along the Alabama coastline, from Dauphin Island to Orange Beach and everywhere in between, with some of the best inshore spots being Wolf Bay, Bay La Launch, and Bayou Saint John. Sport fishing can be enjoyed both on private fishing charters or, for a more economical choice, as part of a group fishing expedition. Here are two of the best Orange Beach sport fishing charters.
