Orange Beach, Al. – On this offshore overnight trip we had some of my good friends and customers from the Baton Rouge/Lafayette Louisiana area. Most of them had fished the overnight charter with us before but a handful of them had never been to the Alabama Gulf Coast. We departed Thursday morning at 6 AM with a moderate North wind blowing. We stopped to catch just a little bit of bait.We left started riding offshore while Drew and Jay were preparing breakfast before first stop.

20130427-045320.jpgWe finished a handful of homemade spots in search of some triggerfish and boy did we catch some. I can’t remember that many big triggerfish in one trip ever before. As we rode further on offshore the water got a little bit deeper and we started catching some scamp which is a very mild great tasting member of the group or family. From one stop to the next scamps seem to get bigger and bigger.

From there we trilled off shore about another 10 miles and pulled up to an offshore production platform and it yielded several big amberjack. From there we moved on offshore in a little bit to the west pulled up on another caught our remaining balance of amberjacks. We put the wahoo troilers back out and headed offshore in search of a yellowfin tuna.

We found pretty water, some baitfish, in a couple of small yellowfin tuna as well as some blackfins right at dark on the first day of our trip. We fished into the night but, I guess the big Full moon had the overnight tuna bite slowed down.
The next morning,we did catch a big yellowfin tuna that weighed about about 80 pounds. At that point, as we were running out of time, we put the wahoo trollers back in the water and ran back up inshore.

We had one real good bite and it pulled a bunch of line and was gone, but it got everyone excited! So we moved on inshore and decided to go check an old area that we had finished in the past. This area produced some of the biggest scamp groupers of the trip and was very heartwarming for me to know that area that must have been decimated by hurricane Ivan and come back and was holding fish again.

We pulled up back at the dock around 3 PM and I think everyone, even myself, was amazed at how many fish we quality fish we had.

Orange Beach/Gulf Shores, Alabama - April 6, 2013 - On this half day six-hour charter fishing trip, we had to Castillo family who is in town from Mobile, Alabama.  As it worked out there was three daughters on board for this trip.  It just so happened to be Reagan’s birthday who is the youngest child who I believe had more fun than any six people I know!  We headed offshore some 15 miles per for spot where the fishing was a little slow. Then moved on offshore a little further to the east and fountain triggers, Vermilion snapper, white snapper and one big old hungry shark.

 

To say that this family love to fish would be a pure understatement. I don’t think any of all missed a single drop at any point during the half-day trip and I really can’t remember a group that had as much fun as they did.  At the conclusion of the trip while Drew was cleaning fish, Reagan would have nothing less than for the Capt. and crew in any bystander to sing happy birthday to her.  It was one of those days with one of those groups that you wish happened every day.  gauging by the amount of fun the three daughters had on the fishing trip I am certain that Melissa and Sean will be back soon!
