Our veteran-owned and operated business boasts over a decade of experience, ensuring that your day on the water is not only thrilling but also safe and successful. Captain Ken, our seasoned guide, will lead the way, sharing his wealth of knowledge and expertise with you throughout the journey.


Gulf Shores is renowned for its abundant marine life, and when you choose Bottomed Out Fishing Charters LLC, you're in for a chance to reel in a variety of prized species. From the thrilling Mahi Mahi and Amberjack to the delectable Grouper and Red Snapper, our waters teem with opportunities. And that's not all – keep your eyes peeled for Kingfish, Swordfish, Yellowfin Tuna, Wahoo, Spanish Mackerel, and Cobia, among others. 


Our fishing charters are as diverse as the species you'll encounter. Depending on the day and conditions, you may find yourself engaged in light tackle fishing, popping, trolling, drifting, jigging, bottom fishing, or other specialized techniques unique to this area. The best part? You get to keep the fish you catch, as long as they fall within legal limits. Plus, our experienced crew can even clean and prepare your catch for you. Just make sure to bring a cooler along to transport your fresh seafood home!


Your vessel for the day is a spacious 30' Center console, capable of accommodating up to six passengers. It comes equipped with all the necessary amenities to ensure a productive and comfortable day on the water, including a convenient toilet on board. Captain Ken will provide top-notch rods and reels, along with a selection of lures to maximize your chances of success. Live bait is also included, although you can always check with the captain if you prefer to catch it yourself. Additionally, Captain Ken will ensure that you remain compliant with all fishing regulations, including any harvest limits or closed seasons.


Families are more than welcome aboard our charters, so feel free to bring along the whole crew! If you have little ones with you, don't hesitate to ask about child-sized life vests. Be sure to pack some snacks, drinks, a hat, sunglasses, and non-spray sunscreen to keep everyone comfortable and refreshed throughout the day. While we do allow alcohol in moderation, we kindly request that you avoid hard liquor and glass bottles for safety reasons.
