Alabama Deep Sea Fishing in July

Orange Beach, Alabama - Saltwater Fishing Report
Alabama Gulf Coast

Fishing from Orange Beach is good overall. The red snapper bite is still off and on but the deepwater bite has been consistent with a variety of fish. If you are looking for a serious fishing trip then you may want to choose the 12 hour or the Deluxe Full Day trip. The amberjack are beginning to appear on a few of our longer trips. However, variety is still the highlight of the longer trips.

The 4 hour trolling trip is still a good family trip or just a good trip for the group that is looking for some cruising, relaxing, sightseeing and fishing for some spanish and king mackeral. The 6 hour trip is still producing some trolling fish but the snapper bite is slow. We have been having activity and catching a few keeper size snapper but releasing many short snapper. A good friend of mine landed a couple of nice cow dolphin, a wahoo and released a blue marlin weighing approximately 300lbs last week on a full day offshore trolling trip. The offshore trolling bite is beginning to come to life. It is that time of year, so come on and lets go offshore trolling.
