Crooked Hook Charters offers 4, 6, or 8 hour trips. All aspects of the trip can be customized to your preferences.
4 hour trip
This trip is great for families with smaller children. It also works great for the hot summer months when you prefer not to bake in the hot sun all day. This trip is designed to introduce you to fishing, let you see the area, or if time is of the essence. You can always extend to a 6 hour while on the water, if scheduling permits. We cannot guarantee this accommodation, but will be happy to try.
6 hour trip
This trip is better geared for the avid fisherman who wants to catch the tide just right and explore more of the area. 6 hours gives you more time to cover more spots looking for feeding fish and moving tides.
8 hour trip
This option works great when the weather is nice and people are eager to spend a full day on the water. This is great fun for larger trips with multiple boats. This generally turns into a kind of mini-tournament. Please be sure to bring plenty of beverages for this trip.
This trip is great for those who just want to take in the beautiful sights and sounds out on the water. This trip is 2 hours in length. If you want to see the flora and fauna surrounding Weeks Bay, or just catch a beautiful sunset on the water - this trip is for you.
Captain Sonny also offers a guide service. New to the area? Just got a boat and don't know where to go? He is happy to go with you on your boat! He will bring some gear and show you some helpful hints to catching and cleaning fish. This service is $75 per hour, four hour minimum.
Included with your trip price:
All fishing gear and tackle
Bait - We always try to have live bait. It is rare that it is not available - but it does happen. According to Fisherman's Discount where we purchase the majority of our bait - "Our bait is guaranteed to catch fish or die trying!"
Items to bring:
Camera (there is dry storage on the boat)
Snacks for shorter trips, lunch for longer ones.
Bug spray and a rain coat are always a good idea. This is south Alabama!
Alcoholic beverages are fine as long as you don't consume enough to fall out of the boat. We want you to have fun, while staying safe.
We specialize in you having a good time on the water. So if you have any requests, please speak up ahead of time. We will always do what we can to accommodate you. Please keep in mind that its called Fishing and not Catching for a reason. We can take you to the fish, we just can't make them open their mouths. If you come with the frame of mind to have fun and enjoy a day on the water; that's half the battle!
Please NOTE: We offer INSHORE charter fishing only, NOT offshore charter trips. Our trips are typically in the rivers, intercoastal waterway, or Mobile Bay - weather permitting. We do NOT fish for Reef fish such as red snapper, grouper or amberjack.
