The abundant waters of Orange Beach, Alabama are calling your name! Wild Bill Charters is a family friendly, professional charter service specializing in offshore fishing trips. From the hard-core anglers looking to head 50 miles off the coast, to the young family looking to bend a rod for the first time, Wild Bill Charters will customize each trip to suit your needs! Captain Bill Watt is the owner and operator of Wild Bill Charters, he’s a lifelong angler and a father of five. Captain Bill has over 25 years of professional experience fishing the waters off the coast of Orange Beach, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable Captain! Captain Bill is great with first time anglers and veterans alike. No two trips are ever the same, Capt. Bill will contact you prior to the trip to learn more about your group and how you want to spend your day on the water. Bring your family and friends and come aboard the Wild Bill, a meticulously maintained 36ft Luhrs! She was designed with both performance and comfort in mind, her spacious cockpit can fish up to 6 anglers. Captain Bill has invested in wide range of fishing equipment to greatly increase the success rate of each trip, these include outriggers, high quality electronics, a live well, and a fish box. The outriggers allow you to troll with multiple lines in the water at once, covering more water and giving the fish more bait to bite! The Wild Bill Charter team has spent nearly three decades becoming intimately familiar with the nearshore and offshore waters of Orange Beach. Nearshore trips are great for first time anglers, young families, and for the groups short on time. On these trips you can expect to catch King Mackerel, Cobia, Vermilion Snapper, Mangrove Snapper, Triggerfish, and more exciting gamefish! The offshore fishing trips are where the action really starts to pick up, you’ll likely find Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Tuna, Grouper, and other bucket list fish tugging on the other end of your line! Your trip cost includes tournament quality rods and reels! It also includes the bait, a fishing license for all on board, and a seasoned first mate. It’s recommended to bring sun protective clothing, sunglasses, and a personal cooler. The Wild Bill Charter team will fillet the day’s catch at the end of the trip at no additional cost, you’re going to want a cooler to bring those fresh fillets home! When you book with Wild Bill Charters, you’re booking with a friendly, local crew that puts the safety and success of your trip above all else! Captain Bill provides a fun, enthusiastic environment and will work tirelessly to make sure everyone on board is having a memorable day on the water! We look forward to meeting you on the dock, many great memories await!

First time and I loved it
First time deep sea fishing and couldn't of been happier. Art and Mason were phenomenal and are a great team. We were told the conditions were not the best, but Art still was able to guide us to the fish. While Mason constantly kept lines in the water and kept us reeling in the fish. If you are unsure of who to book, pick these guys!!!! Will be back 100% on the Wild Bill!!!!

Amazing Trip!
This trip was amazing. We were taken by Captain Art and First Mate Mason. Of course, before setting off, Art gave the disclaimer that some days you don't catch anything, but today we were lucky! Art and Mason make an incredible team and is what made this trip so successful (we caught a 34" Mahi in the off-season). Art and Mason have worked together for a long time and are both very experienced, they were attentive and communicate well. Mason was constantly working/checking lines and seems to have a natural skill for it. I went with my dad and brother, from 8am-noon, and we ended up with more fish than we could eat. As you can see, we caught 1 mahi, 2 tuna, 2 bonita and one barracuda. I was especially stoked, because I have been on many trips were you don't catch much. Captain Art, was seeking the spots where bait and fish were jumping and would run our trailing lines right through! It was so fun, and we learned a lot about the local area. Once back to the dock, Mason, filleted the Mahi and Tuna and gave us several locations that would cook our fresh catch. I highly recommend Wild Bill Charter with Captain Art and First Mate Mason!!

We caught many fish!!
Just finished a trip today. The weather wasn’t the best in that the waves made for a really rocky ride. Captain Art and Mate Mason did their best and we caught plenty of Mahi for our dinner and then some.
