Orange Beach, Alabama - Saltwater Fishing Report

Orange Beach fishing is alive with big bull redfish just off the beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, Alabama. We are catching big bull redfish weighing 17 - 28 pounds. Methods include sightcasting on the surface and slow trolling. This is an absolute blast on light tackle. Where else can you catch big fish weighing up to 30 pounds or larger on a 4 hour fishing charter. Come try it.

Cobia fishing is near. Big cobia should arrive in mid March. Try yourluck at a fish that can weigh up to 100 pounds or larger. Average weight is 30 -50 pounds. Spring Break is a good time to enjoy a 4 hour cruise or fishing trip along the Alabama Gulf Coast. Spanish mackerel should also arrive in March.

Orange Beach Fishing at its best.
