Gulf Shores Inshore Fishing

Alabama's Gulf Coast offers a wonderful variety of inshore saltwater fishing. Go after Red Fish, Speckled Trout, White Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, and more! Get hooked on backwater fishing in the Gulf Shores area! Light tackle fishing on the calm waters of Mobile Bay and other smaller connected waterways is a great experience for all anglers. If you enjoy fishing but do not like the typical rough gulf waves, you should give backwater fishing a try. Calm shallow waters, beautiful scenery, sea birds, dolphins, and alligators are just a few of the amazing things you may see on your inshore fishing adventure!

About Us

Gator Nelson and Matt White got together in 2010 and formed Nelson charter fishing. To start, they built this business because they truly love to fish. Next, they wanted to show people a complete fishing experience. From their rustic fishing marina and boatyard to the sights of the secluded backwater fishing areas. They pride their trips as much more than merely filling a cooler.
