Our family of 6 went out on March 14, 2018 and had an amazing morning. We ended up with more sheepshead than we could eat! Plus we saw a sea turtle and dolphins! I highly recommend booking with Finatics!


Best Fishing Charter Experience we’ve had!

We went out with captain Chad and had a blast! We took my 4 year old daughter and he was fantastic with her. He had her netting and reeling them in on her own. Everyone had a great time and we caught a lot of fish. We will definitely do it again when we return to Dauphin Island.

Great Experience

Our guide was Jason, he got us on fish right away and it was a blast! He knew the area, was extremely friendly and made it fun. For those learning he has an easy teaching style and if you just listen you can’t go wrong. Finished with our limit and several pounds of great eating fish. Thank you Finatics!

Finatics guided fishing trip.

Capt. Jason was great! It didn’t take him very long to put us on some great size trout. He was very professional and knew his way around the boat and water. Jason was also great getting the teens excited about the catch…thanks!


Finatics Inshore Fishing

I surprised my hubby with an inshore fishing trip with Capt. Chad and we had a blast! We caught our limit, minus the “one that got away” during our 3.5 hour trip. Chad is smart, professional and down right funny. Just don’t bring bananas on the boat!

Best birthday fishing trip ever!

Family of five with children ranging from 8 to 13. Went out for an early morning trip and had a blast! Captain Chad did a fantastic job engaging our kids and keeping them excited! He has a great sense of humor and is also super patient with novice fisherman. Did I mention he also put us on fish? We will be back!

Fintastic Family Fishing!

Capt Chad was very hospitable and worked hard to put us on fish all morning! I would recommend him to anyone looking for a high quality inshore experience.

Great Experience

Had a great morning with Jason putting us on fish. Had may 8 year old son and 7 year old nephew and Jason was really good with them. We brought home plenty of fish for lunch and made some good memories too.

Captain / Owner Chad Palmer

Captain Chad Palmer, originally from Union Springs, Alabama, moved to the Mobile area in 2004 after years on the road as a blimp pilot. As that job might suggest, it did not allow much time home.

Barnie White from Brewton, AL grew up fishing for bass on the Alabama River. That all changed in 2004 when he started fishing professional redfish tournaments.

Captain Chris Dalton

Chris Dalton grew up between Mobile and Spanish Fort, Alabama. A lifelong angler, the saltwater drew him offshore. He obtained his captains license in 1999 and has chartered or captained private boats ever since.

Captain Erik Nelson

Erik Nelson, originally from the New Orleans area, has been living in the Mobile area for the past 17 years and knows the local inshore waters well.
