fishing Gulf Shores, fishing Orange Beach

We watched tropical depression 10 pass by with a small amount of rain and light winds. That is just fine with us . We were tied to the dock for a few days as we waited the results of this storm. The weather looks great for the remainder of September for Gulf Shores fishing and Orange Beach fishing. We are ready to travel offshore for some bottomfishing. We changed our 12 hour trip last week to a 6 hour trip due to some windy weather and rough seas. However, we enjoyed some nice seas closer to the shore as we caught some nice red snapper, big Spanish mackerel and a few king mackerel. The temps are cooler and much more comfortable as we are experiencing highs in the mid 80's. I still have good availability for weekdays and Sundays in October. We are gearing up for our big redfish run from late October through early April. Come enjoy one of these 4 or 6 hour trips along the beach for some big bull redfish usually weighing 15 - 30 pounds. Great fun on light tackle. Gulf Shores fishing and Orange Beach fishing at its best.
