Max Drag Charters
Captain Curtis Bush practically grew up on the waters running from Dauphin Island to Pensacola. He spent his youth fishing the Gulf and learning to navigate the artificial reefs. As the owner and captain of Max Drag Charters, he now shares this passion with small groups of individuals seeking to enjoy a half- or full-day excursion out on the waters, where deep-sea fishing and soothing ocean views provide a welcome escape from everyday landlocked life. Passengers can sink into the vessel's padded seats as they relax with a drink and patiently wait to reel in a sizable red snapper—the area's most prominent fish—or anything from a spotted seatrout to a cobia. Every excursion includes full access to the bait and tackle and assistance cleaning any catches.
