waters nearshore & offshore of Gulf Shores

Gulf Shores fishing for red snapper with light tackle is a blast. Adults and kids are enjoying this great fishing. The red snapper bite is awesome and they are being caught on 6 hour Gulf Shores fishing charters. We are also catching a few triggerfish. Trolling for king mackerel and Spanish mackerel has also been very good. Mackerel are being caught on 4 hour charters.

Offshore bottomfishing is producing some amberjack, scamp, triggerfish, red snapper, vermillion snapper, grouper and more. Offshore trolling has been a little slow. Everyone is waiting on some blue water to come closer to shore. There are a few yellowfin and blackfin tuna being caughtwell offshore.

Whether it is a family trip or a trip for the guys, come on and let's go fishing.
