Dauphin Island Fishing

All aboard the Minutes of Use! Our speedy fishing charters has been taking novice and veteran
fisherman alike out on the water for fun, fish, and fresh ocean breezes since 2016. At the
helm, you’ll find captain Jerry Whisenhunt — a former recreational fisherman, he became
passionate and inspired to share his love of the sport with out-of-towners, visitors, and
families across Alabama and beyond. We’ll pick you up at the Dauphin Island or Fort Morgan
Marinas in the morning and get right to a half or full day of outdoor adventures. Every
guest leaves with seasonal catches in their hands, pictures on their cameras, and memories
in their mind’s eye.


Snapper Season

We offer ½ and full day charters targeting snapper. We offer a money back GUARANTEE that you catch fish on our snapper charters.

Red Snapper is the summer King, with most trips targeting snapper first then other fish unless planned differently. Red Snapper are great eating and fun to catch. Most trips result in a limit of snapper and some time left to look for other species of fish to target.

Amber Jack Season

We offer 6 hour and longer for Amberjack. We recommend at least 6 hours for amberjack because of the distance to the fish and the time it takes to land the fish. These are hard fighting fish that will test your resolve getting them to the boat. Both boats are available for these trips. Look at boats to match the boat to your desired trip and pricing to see which boat matches your budget.

King Mackerel

Give customers a reason to do business with you. Both boats are available for ½ and full day king mackerel trip, however minutes of use was designed for king tournament fishing. We can strictly target kings or make this a fun near shore trip catching kings, sharks, jacks, and bonito. The near shore fun trip is action packed rod bending action without a long ride. It is great for pictures and fun however not great for the table as most of the fish we catch are not ideal eating.

Tuna trips

This is where the Data Girl thrives. She is fast enough to make the 100 mile trips tolerable yet is comfortable and allows for an enjoyable overnight stay on the water. Tuna trips are normally at least 24 hour trips because of the distance we have to travel. She is ideal for a 4 person group, although she is licensed for 6 customers and can take 6 the reality is that to truly be comfortable 4 is the perfect number.

Bill Fish, Wahoo, and Dolphin:

Data girl is an ideal option to target bill fish and wahoo. She is a fast sport fisher originally designed for this purpose. Much like tuna this is a long trip, most of the time we mix it in with tuna as both fish live in the same area.

Misc Trips:

We also target sheep head in the spring and vermillion snapper in the fall and winter. There are too many options to list them all so give us a call to talk about what works for you.
