Captain John Sullens has been fishing the waters off of Gulf Shores, Alabama since 1995. He operates a team of qualified guides and treats every fishing trip as if it were his own. You can expect a full-service private trip with Freebird Charters, and we’ll provide one on one help to make sure you’re catching all the fish you can. If needed, we’ll even bait your hook! We’re a family friendly charter service, all ages are welcome at the parent’s discretion. Captain John is great with young kids, he’ll have them fishing like a pro in no time!

Freebird Charters maintains a well-kept 22’ center console, powered by a 200hp Yamaha engine. She receives regular maintenance and has enough room to fish up to 6 anglers. There’s a T-Top to provide shade for everyone, and you can also find a GPS and fish finder on board. Reel Call Charters has a variety of safety equipment on board, including: Life Jackets, First-Aid Equipment, Flares, and a CPR-Trained Crew.

You can expect to catch a variety of Alabama’s coveted inshore/nearshore species, such as: Tarpon, Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, Tripletail, Pompano, Triggerfish, and Permit. If the seas are calm enough (at Captain John’s discretion), you’ll be able to go further offshore in hunt of Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Grouper, and Mangrove Snapper.

Your trip cost includes rods for everyone on board, fishing licenses, fresh/live bait, and Captain John will clean your catches for a fresh dinner. April-May, and September-November are the best windows to target Redfish. April and May are also the top months to target Spotted Seatrout, but January-March and October-December also produce great numbers. No matter which time of year you’re looking to book with Reel Call Charters, something is always biting!

First-timers, veteran anglers, families, all are welcome to come fishing with Freebird Charters! Come experience the calm waters of Orange Beach, Alabama and enjoy a day filled with bent rods. Captain John is looking forward to customizing this trip for YOU!

Awesome crew and trip!
Captain John and Chastity took us on an amazing inshore trip and made the entire experience very enjoyable for my wife, 4 sons and me! They were great with assisting us in the fishing process and also helping us find great places to catch an interesting variety of fish! I would definitely recommend them!!

Quick Fishing Trip (AM)
We took a short 2 hour trip with John & Chastity. The trip included my husband, our 6 year old daughter, son in law & myself. We had an absolute blast! Our daughter, Preslee, was a little scared of the boat ride & as soon as Chas told John, he slowed the boat down so Pres felt comfortable. One the trip back to dock, John added some speed at Preslee’s request. Pres adored Chasity. We didnt bring home a cooler full of fish, but John made sure we didn’t come home empty handed! Our short trip was full of conversation, laughs & made some great memories! John & Chas really know their stuff & their personalities are fantastic. Thank you so much for an excellent trip & we will definately be back to Alabama soon so we can book another trip with yall, open water and more hours! I have nothing to say but high praises on John, Chas & Freebird Charters!

Had a great time being out on the water with Captain John despite fish not biting much due to cold weather. He gave us ample warning and opportunity to reschedule if we desired, but only being in town a few days we kept the trip. Went to a few different spots to catch - caught some trout, mullet, croakers, and blue crab.
