Awesome fishing with Captain Marty!

Went on a half day bay fishing charter with Captain Marty and had a great time. He put us on fish and made sure that everyone on the boat had fun. The boat was very safe and comfortable and Captain Marty was very professional. Not only did he teach me and my kids about fishing, but about the different types of fish and sea life as well as their habitats and how the fish respond to changes in their environment. He didn't just take us fishing, he was truly teaching us how to fish. I will definitely go fishing with Captain Marty again on our next vacation to Orange Beach!

Thank you Jim... You guys were excellent students. Glad we exceeded your expectations.

Best Inshore fishing charter!

I have never caught as many sheepshead in my life! It was like fishing in a barrel. I serious doubt i would ever had known where the best fishing spot with out Captain Marty! Thanks a million!

Thank you for your kind words Paul. We look forward to our next fishing charter.

Vacation Fun

We can't say enough about Captain Marty. We had a little issue about booking times and the office went beyond being helpful. The fishing went great. We can't wait to hook up again next year!

Thank you MaryAnn... Happy we were able to make your vacation memorable.

Hard working Captain

Capt. Marty really worked hard this morning to get us on some fish. We caught Red fish and Black Drum and had a great time!! We will definitely be back to see him again!!

Thanks Tony.

Our first fishing charter well worth it!

Salty Dog was our first charter fishing experience, and I'd say it was very well worth it. Marty was very knowledgeable about the water and the fish and where to go and what we did wrong and right. He even had some super secret bait the fish loved!! :)) it was a great trip, and it's definitely hard work for the captains of these boats. I definitely have a respect for them. Next time I'm definitely going to go with Salty Dog and do the offshore fishing trip with more people. Marty is awesome and so is Tina, the booking lady, she was so friendly and helpful, and they even let me bring my dog on the charter!! Thank y'all so much salty dog!! #keeprippinlips #louisianalovessaltydog

We are happy that we could make your first fishing charter outing awesome. We look forward to seeing you again Farah.

What a great trip and wonderful fishing experience!

Thanks Sean.

Marty is the best!

We were told to look up Salty Dog for an inshore charter and Captain Marty was great! We saw Dolphins and the kids all caught fish. Then we went back for a Cobia trip and my son and I both caught the biggest fish of our lives. If you're in the Gulf Shores or Orange Beach area look Marty up. He Rocks!

Thanks a million Chuck. We appreciate your business.

Captain Marty is a 5 star Fishing Guide

Went out on an inshore trip with Captain Marty 3/29/15. He was knowledgeable, personable, and just plain fun. There were 5 of us on the boat, including the captain. When we were done, he cleaned the fish and chatted us up while doing it. I will go out on the water with him again.

Thanks Dan.

Excellent Service!

We went with Capt. Marty and had a great time. He was really good with our kids! We caught lots of sheepshead... We had action all day long, he really knew where to take us! We took home a cooler full of fish. I would recommend everyone fish with the TOP DOG in Orange Beach, AL. We had a blast and will definitely be back next year.

Thanks Jerry... makes us happy we come so highly recommended.

Shark fishing with captain Marty...

Capt Marty was great. When we got to the dock he said fishing was tough this morning and offered to do some Shark fishing instead of trying to fill cooler. We were all in. We hooked up to 3 sharks and landed all three. Awesome time. Definitely will be back.

We are glad we could provide you with options. See you next time Nick.
