The sound of the reel releasing as you toss it into the waters, the feel of the warm Alabama sun on your shoulders, the salty smell of the turquoise waters of the Gulf, and that first icy taste of that beer that has been sitting in the cooler at your side: THIS is the reason many visitors plan a vacation in Gulf Shores. And if it wasn’t your reason, we bet it soon will be! Fishing in Gulf Shores, Alabama is one of life’s greatest pleasures, tranquil and calming even when the fish aren’t biting. Don’t forget to pack your favorite fishing hat; you can rent everything else you need once you get in town!
Choose Where to Fish
Because there are many different types of Gulf Shores fishing available to you in the Gulf Shores region, your first decision will be whether you want to fish from a dock or charter a Gulf Shores fishing boat to add to the excitement of your fishing adventure? Sometimes all you want is a folding chair, a fishing pole, and a cooler to keep yourself refreshed as you partake in Gulf Shores pier fishing (or a bridge in areas where it is permitted). If you choose the simpler spot, a fishing license will be needed; for information on how you can obtain a fishing license, visit www.alabamainteractive.org/dcnr_license/welcome.action; this site will tell you everything you need to know. If you are chartering a Gulf Shores fishing boat, no license is necessary!
