Captain Johnny Greene continues to have great luck with spring fishing!This post was originally published by Capt. Johnny Greene on his website FishOrangeBeach.com.

On today’s deep-sea fishing trip we had Gary Blackman and his buddies on board for a bachelor party. They chose a six-hour charter fishing trip and had a large time. The weather was absolutely picture-perfect although the current was running a bit out of the west it made for perfect conditions.

We did not have a bite on the trollers on the way out or the way back in but we did catch some big king mackerel on 20 pound test spinning reels that was positioned on or near the surface. This is what we call a drift line. We also had some nice red snapper and of course took some pictures then released them to fight another day. The Vermilion Snapper bite was on and there was constant action around the boat through out the trip.

Once we return to the dock Drew unloaded the fish and begin cleaning fish as the charter left to go eat lunch. After lunch Gary and Jeremy returned to pick up the catch then they were off to complete what is sure to be a fun-filled bachelor party weekend.

Thanks again we appreciate your business.

Triggerfish are biting in Gulf Shores & Orange Beach with captain Johnny Greene on the Intimidator

Triggerfish are fan favorite to eat and catch! This young man has a trophy in his hands!

Orange Beach, AL - The fishing in the winter time off of the coast of Orange Beach has long been a favorite of many savvy anglers.  This time of year you will not have long lines, traffic jams or Mosquito’s but the fishing is as good as it can get.  You might have to be a little flexible on the weather but this winter has been very mild and sea conditions are calm for the most part

One of my longtime favorite types of fish to catch has always been triggerfish and I must admit the 6 month closure last year was especially hard for me.  Yes it hurt not having them available to my customers but I truly love to catch and eat them.  However, the trade-off of the fishery closure far outweighs the desire to catch.

For years triggerfish were considered a trash fish mainly because people did not know how to clean them.  Since I started fishing in the 80′s we have always kept them and they have always been one if my most favorite fish to eat.  Although they are admittedly odd-looking with some nasty looking jagged teeth used to eat barnacles among other things, they have a firm white meat that you can bake, broil, blacken or my personal favorite… Fried!  Well as you can imagine I love everything fried and this is my favorite!

Have you ever wondered where they got their name from?  Well I don’t know if anyone really knows but the one I believe is how to get that big spike of a fin to lie down on top of its head.  There is a small fin right behind the big one that must move first, and then the big one will fall back just like a trigger.

So they next time you catch a trigger you have the inside information on some of the best eating around!  Besides, I will always take a couple of pieces home, if you’re still not convinced!

We departed Orange Beach Marina at 6:30am this morning and headed south out of Perdido pass. The wind had shifted a little earlier than expected, so we were in defensive mode meaning that we were just going to take it easy and see how the conditions went as the day went by.

As we arrive to our first fishing location everyone was instantly hooked up with nice vermillion snapper, red snapper and white snapper. With the day off to a great start, everybody feeling well, we decided to keep going further south.

Our second fishing spot we caught a few more Vermillion snapper as well as some of the biggest, nicest red snapper we have caught in a long time. All were safely caught, photographed and released.

At this point, Tim and his family were feeling good the seas were still about the same so we pointed the boat south in search of amberjack’s and perhaps a scamp or red grouper.

Then weather conditions begin to deteriorate over just a few miles from the spot I had picked out. Once we arrived, we were instantly hooked up with several nice jacks and one big red grouper. With everyone’s emotions peaked we moved one more mile further South and caught the remaining balance of our limit of amberjack’s, one really big scamp and one more nice red grouper. At this point, we started working our way home hitting a few more spots along the way in hopes of catching a scamp but only catching more big red snapper. At this time, everyone is ready to head in.

So with Drew and Rossi cleaning the boat Tim breaks out the secret recipe steaks that he had been marinating all day. With the big green egg grill lit, steaks cooking we had made it through another day and finished up to 2012 season with a bang!

The fall time weather patterns have finally arrived at the beach. The warm summer sun has left the Gulf of Mexico waters warm even as the weather starts to cool off and the days become shorter.  As the big schools of bait fish push further offshore this, it will make for some fantastic action and I cannot think of a better time to run a 4 hour fishing charter for Spanish and King mackerel.  This is a very relaxed type of fishing that is kid friendly yet has enough action to keep everyone involved.  Also, you may find big schools of bull redfish as [Read more...]

The 2012 gag grouper season ended on October 31st and by our accounts it was a huge success. While we don’t catch as many gag’s as they do in other places, Orange Beach is becoming more of a target destination for this recovering fishery.

Typically speaking we may not catch the numbers of groupers that they might in other places but the ones we catch ate usually large and put up a heck of a fight! The fish can grow up to 80 pounds but fish over 30 pounds are considered a trophy.

To catch a big one we use different types of live and dead baits to entice one into striking. You must be ready to reel when the fish hits to make sure the circle hook rotates in to the corner of the jaw and then it’s up to you to crank!

Captain Johnny Greene's Intimidator Sportfishing, Gulf Shores & Orange BeachOver the past several weeks we have run many offshore overnight fishing charters off the Alabama Gulf Coast with tremendous success for large gag grouper, amberjack, blackfin and yellowfin tuna’s.

Proving once again why this is truly the best time of year to fish, as the weather cools off the water remains warm, the fish like it as much as we do!

The overnight trips are proving much diversity in our catch and lots of happy and satisfied returning anglers as always.

However, if overnight offshore fishing is not your thing, do not worry. The 10-12 hour day trips have been just phenomenal with the vermilion snapper, white snapper, scamps, gag grouper and the amberjacks. [Read more...]

Catching Gag Grouper on The Intimidator in Orange BeachThis article was written by Captain Johnny Greene, and was originally featured on www.FishOrangeBeach.com. The original version cna be viewed by clicking here.

With the looming closure for gag grouper just six weeks away now is the time to make plans to go get them on a deep sea charter fishing trip . With the recent passing of hurricane Isaac just to the south of the Orange Beach and Gulf Shores areas the grouper have been very active and has made for some great day trips.

During the fall you may also keep Vermillion snapper, amberjack, scamps and king mackerel which will make for a fine box of fish for you and your buddies to enjoy on your fishing trip.

The fall is absolutely my most favorite time of year to fish. The air starts to cool off in the water temperatures remain warm until early December. Come on let’s go fishing!

Orange Beach, Al. - The deep sea family fishing report on the Intimidator for June 2012 is a good one!  The red snapper fishing has been really good so far this season.  With only a few days to catch them and people in town on vacation it has been a good time.  The weather has been a bit of a challenge but thank goodness for a great big, safe boat as we ride offshore.

The catches have been really good with king and Spanish mackerel on the way out and back in as we transit offshore to the fishing grounds on the half day 6 hour charters.  The kings have been good on the drift-line and [Read more...]

Captain Johnny Greene's Intimidator Sportfishing, Gulf Shores & Orange BeachApril 18, 2012 -  Now that spring break 2012 has come and gone for the gulf coast we are a still fishing and the action continues to be good for those anglers. One good time about this time of year is most all of the crowds have cleared out and of town and the fishermen are being rewarded with great catches for a minimal amount of money.

On the 4 hour charters, we have been catching lots of Spanish Mackerel and a few big king mackerel have started to show up. We have been fishing down to the west, just offshore between Orange Beach and the Gulf Shores pier. The Spanish are great eating fish that are fun to catch especially for the kids. The length of the trip seems to be just right for the kids not to loose interest. The trips we have run this spring many people have decided to keep only what they were going to eat that night for dinner which is a good thing to teach the youngsters on the boat that it is [Read more...]

Orange Beach/Gulf Shores, Alabama – January 16, 2012 Alabama deep sea fishing report. On this full day fishing trip on the big 65 foot Intimidator we had the Hilderbrand crew from Indiana onboard.Capt. Johnny Greene's "The Intimidator" - Fish orange Beach

We departed Orange Beach Marina at 6 AM into rather choppy seas and headed south to the bottom fishing grounds. Mr. Hilderbrand and I had discussed the weather for several days leading up to this trip but no one onboard was sick and everyone catching all of the fish.

We caught Vermillion snapper, white snapper, some big triggerfish we then rode further on offshore. Once we got located, the big Amberjacks started to bite and I must admit I had kinda forgot how big and mean the Amberjacks are in the winter. We had a limit of big amberjack’s with some of the 50-75 pound class

Once everyone had the opportunity to battle an Amberjack it was time to start heading in so we pointed the boat toward the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast and made the ride back toward Perdido pass.
