    Check out this FlashEarth view:

    Orange Beach
    (Just click on the map somewhere inside of the pop-up box and the box will disappear.

    If offshore doesn't work out, there's almost limitless inshore opportunities.

    Get a non-res license and just pick a spot!

    Forget about Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. We prefer to stay on Dauphin Island. We fish in the canal, off the beach and from the pier. We charter with Capt Chris Dalton...
    The Charterboat MAR-T - We hope to hear from you.
    They are out of DI Marina. Other boats there too. I think that Mike Theirry runs a walk on charter. The Lady Ann.
    Here's the link for the Lady Ann Charter fishing with Capt. Mike out of Dauphin Island, AL

    Jeff Theirry runs the Striker but I think that he is still using the website on that LA board under the name of Dorado.

    For redfish and inshore species.... index.htm
    Capt Don Holloway

    Look for realtors on Dauphin Island. It's accross Mobile Bay from OB/GS.

    Houses with canal access are available reasonably. They are private and peaceful. We caught blue crab, croakers, pinfish, flounder, sea trout and redfish. You can get beach side houses for extra money.

    Zeke's can put you on a walk on charter. Call before you leave home to see about what they can offer. You can usually get a trip on a Saturday. The only problem is that you are well over an hour away if you stay on DI. You have to go around the bay. The ferry does not operate in the wee morning nor night time hours.
    San Roc Cay and the municipal marina in OB have charter boats and private fishermen.

    J&M Tackle is on Canal St in OB. They have a strong offshore selection. They can repair rods/reels and rig lures in house.

    I 'll think later about what I omitted... Edited...

    I edited it Skeeter.

    I'll also add that if you need a place for the wife to shop then OB/GS will fix her up. If you go to that side of the bay, eat at Lambert's. Go hungry too!
    Lambert's Cafe III - Foley, Alabama

    There are some amusement parks in Gulf Shores for the kids.

    My family really likes Dauphin Island better.

    Ummm Good. Love the pass-arounds....
    Lambert's can get very crowded during the peak season so go at a offtime to beat the lunch and dinner rush.
