Anyone who has been fishing in Alabama know about the red snapper. Orange Beach has been known as the "Red Snapper Capital of the world. For over 25 years, that have been the staple of charter boats and recreational fishermen. The problem is that the Red Snapper season proposed for 2009 has not been announced yet. We are anticipating season two months during June and July as we had in 2008. There is also a bag limit of two fish per person and a minimum length of 16 inches.

Red Snapper is not the only fish in the Gulf. There are many other species in Alabama waters are available for the catch. Whether you decide to fish from the waves, a pier, and boat docks, there are always fish to be caught in Alabama. One thing is certain, there are some good saltwater fishing in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama, and need be enjoying.

Depending on when you want to go fishing, Back Bay and inshore species like redfish, spotted trout, sea bream, flounder, white trout, croaker, Pompano and saltwater catfish are available during spring, summer and fall. Some fish are more abundant than others, and are available throughout year. It is necessary to consult a workshop or meet inshore guide to find out what is biting. Some good tackle shops in Orange Beach are Mo & Bait Tackle, Top Gun Tackle, J & M tackle and Sam's. They all have a good pulse of what is biting and may suggest that the bait, tackle and inshore letters you can use.

The typical marine species caught in fishing on the reefs during the day trips are snapper, mangrove snapper, sea bream, Vermilion snapper, triggerfish, Ruby Lips, Shark, Cobia, Bonita, Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Bull Redfish, Wahoo, Jack Crevalle, amberjack, Warehouse Jacks, Mahi-Mahi, Shark and Barracuda Suckers. These species can be caught throughout the year, but the best fishing is from April to October. Some may be captured, while trawling or vision. Most are caught while fishing on reefs. Some species such as Bull redfish are available during the winter months from November to March. Migration cobia occurs during late March and all the way until April.

Overnight trips often produce oil platform migratory fish such as yellowfin tuna and blackfin. They can also produce Blue or White Marlin. Rainbow Runners and Dorado or Mahi-Mahi, also available on the high seas and can be found on the lines drawn further. Our nearest oil platforms that produce tuna are 60 miles offshore. You need a fast boat in calm water or a trip charter overnight to get in position to have the opportunity to capture them.

As with all fishing, there is no guarantee of catch. Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama, has some fabulous fishing. If you are fishing and not having any luck catching fish, you may need to consult a fishing guide or hire a charter boat to take you. As with anything, knowledge costs money. The hiring of a charter is an investment well spent.

We hope this information helps explain the different types of Alabama saltwater fishing charters that are available for recreational saltwater fishermen. For more information on charter boats and charter fishing in general, you may contact Captain Troy Frady at
