Fall Fishing is Fun!
As we bid farewell to summer, we welcome the cooler temperatures of fall. Some consider this to be the best time of year for fishing the Gulf of Mexico.

Pleasant temperatures, fewer boats and more fish make it a good time to cast a line.

During this time of year, the fishing is much more relaxed. The reefs aren’t fished as often and you are likely to find plenty to keep you busy. Hop on a charter for a trolling trip for dolphin, blackfin tuna, and maybe a wahoo or marlin! Our experienced charter captains will know exactly where to go and what bait is doing the best.

If trolling isn’t your favorite, fall is also a good time for grouper and other bottom fish. You will probably hook beeliners, white snapper and red snapper on your trip. Of course, red snapper aren’t in season and must be released, but they are fun to catch.

 
TRY LIGHT TACKLE FOR BULL REDFISH 
Big Bull Redfish

Catching a big bull redfish on a light spinning tackle could be the most fishing fun you have all year. During fall and winter, the big bull redfish come closer to the Gulf Shores and Orange Beach shore. On a four- to six-hour charter, you can sometimes see them in schools of 100 or more! These offshore redfish have the potential to reach 60 pounds, but most catches weigh 20-30 pounds.

Be sure to check with our charter captains for an awesome fishing experience this fall and winter.
