Vacationers who want a day filled with fishing can turn to the Lost Bay Guide Service for help during their Gulf Shores beach vacation. The company provides daily fishing trips for curious travelers who are ready to haul in the catch of the day.

Learn to fish with the Lost Bay Guide Service

Vacationers staying at a Gulf Shores rental during their next family trip can add any number of activities to their schedule - but there's a reason many choose to go fishing. The activity is a quintessential part of any family vacation to Alabama's coastal region, giving you an opportunity to spend quality time with loved ones while trying your hand at a fun pastime. 

You can enjoy great fishing in Orange Beach every day of the year. The shallows are full of Redfish, Flounder, and Seatrout (the “big three” when it comes to inshore fishing) and there’s no bad time to fish for them. If you’re looking for all-out action on the open water, the summer billfish season is the time for you. Some of the biggest fish in the world show up from June onwards, from Marlin and Sailfish to tasty Tuna and Mahi Mahi.


But if you’re in town in June there’s one fish you absolutely have to catch - Red Snapper. These guys are everyone’s favorite, and with good reason. They’re fun to catch, great to eat, and make for an awesome photo! In fact, they’re so popular that their season has to be tightly controlled, and you can only catch them in a short window in early summer.

Whatever you do, you can’t go wrong with Orange Beach charter guides. The marinas are packed with fancy cruisers, and every ramp and spillway has trailers waiting to drop smaller boats into the water.

Local guides have been fishing their whole lives and they know these waters better than the fish themselves. They’re family guys who love helping kids land their first fish.

If you want to head out on a fun adventure that the whole family can enjoy, consider taking a trip out on the high seas with the crew from Lost Bay Fishing. The guide service brings eager anglers out into the Gulf Coast every day, exposing these travelers to a whole world of fishing and enhancing a vacation in the process. 

Let experts guide the way

Spend an afternoon fishing in the Gulf Coast with the help of the Lost Bay Guide Service.These Gulf Shores fishing trips are led by Captain Bill Willis, a man with more than 20 years of experience navigating the waters around Orange Beach and Perdido Key. Willis and his wife Michelle are both licensed captains who enjoy sharing their passion with others - making them the perfect guides for your fishing excursion. Their high skill level also means they can help anyone catch a fish. 

Lost Bay Guide Service uses a variety of boats to bring vacationers out on the water. Each is a relatively new model that can accommodate up to four people, and the exact vessel used for the fishing trip depends on the group and its needs. Several of the boats are ideal for novices, so even if you've never touched a fishing lure, you should be comfortable enough to learn the ins and outs of the world. 

The company also provides the rods, tackle and bait, and will take pictures of you and your family having fun on the water, so you can always remember the time you spent together fishing in Gulf Shores

Feeling adventurous?

Those vacationers who want to add an element of adventure into their travel plans are in luck. Lost Bay Fishing offers a special excursion called "The Night Shift," which brings anglers out on the Gulf Coast after the sun goes down. Using special halogen lights and electronics, you quietly locate schools of fish and experience the thrill of fishing in the dark.

Perfect for the whole family

One of the aspects of fishing you'll be sure to love is that it's the ideal activity for the whole family. Whether you're traveling with grandparents who have grown up fishing or want to take your kids out on the water for the first time, you can easily customize the adventure to fit the general skill level of your party. As an added bonus, when you're cruising through the water you'll be treated to some spectacular views of the shore, as lighthouses, beaches and the unique marine life surrounding you makes for a special backdrop. 

Lost Bay Guide Service is regularly used by families with young children, so even if it's your first time bringing them out on the water, you can trust that you'll have the proper safety equipment and tools to make the experience one that's exciting and secure. All you have to do is bring your appetite for fun - and some sunscreen - and you can have a great time fishing.
