Orange Beach, Alabama
October 09, 2012
Over the past several weeks we have run many offshore overnight fishing charters off the Alabama Gulf Coast with tremendous success for large gag grouper, amberjack, blackfin and yellowfin tuna’s.
Proving once again why this is truly the best time of year to fish, as the weather cools off the water remains warm, the fish like it as much as we do!
The overnight trips are proving much diversity in our catch and lots of happy and satisfied returning anglers as always.
However, if overnight offshore fishing is not your thing, do not worry. The 10-12 hour day trips have been just phenomenal with the vermilion snapper, white snapper, scamps, gag grouper and the amberjacks.
The 6 hour half-day family fishing charters have turned out to be a crowd-pleaser. We have had an abundance of fish to catch with lots of Bent poles and happy people abound. Although we can’t keep all the fish that we catch on the half-day trips we have certainly photographed and released many different types of fish. Most noticeably has been the abundance of small amberjack’s that put up a tremendous battle light tackle in the shallow water in the shallow water within 10 miles of Orange Beach.
Yesterday’s report on the 4 hour trolling trips is a really good one. As the big bull redfish have finally shown up for their fall/winter migration. This is probably the best news of this entire report. Where else can you go fishing with your family on a four-hour charter and have the opportunity to catch some giant bull redfish!
