On this offshore fishing trip we had a very successful plumbing company from Atlanta Georgia on the boat. We departed orange Beach Marina at 6 AM and headed south into the Gulf of Mexico to catch some fresh live bait. Shortly thereafter we headed off shore to our first bottom fishing locations.

20130430-064205.jpgThe first Stop had some big triggerfish and some red snapper, the second spot had some really big triggerfish and a few Vermillion snapper. We then road offshore as lunch was being pulled off the Grill. Our next spot was to try to catch some scamp and more Vermillion snapper. We were very lucky and everyone called some really big scamps and if you really big vermilion snapper.

We then were in search of amberjack, which had not been biting very well with the full moon in effect. However, we did manage to catch everyone some big ones.

From this point we put out some big game lures as Jay and Drew were preparing steaks, salad and Capt. John’s famous boat potatoes.

As we pulled up to her first offshore floating platform just before dark we didn’t see anybody or fish around so we moved on to the second location.

At this location we call to yellowfins very quick manner and then managed to catch some black fins to go along with it. After that I moved on to another location to make one more time before we went to bed for the evening. Upon arrival i noticed some fish jumping in the distance I didn’t take long we were hooked up and caught 4 more big yellowfins to finish up the trip!

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.

Everyone loves to catch triggerfish!

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!

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.

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...]

Fishing Report from The Intimidator- August

Orange Beach, Al. – the deep sea fishing continues to be really good! The 4 hour trips are continuing to be good choices for small families on a budget that want to be on a big boat. We have had good catches with king and Spanish mackerel.

The 6 hour fishing trips have been the most popular trips this year with all of the options that are available to us from bottom fishing, to trolling to live bait fishing for mackerel

The full day trips are the best trips if you are really serious about having a great time and catching some fish too. Amberjack season is back open and they are big fish that have to be 30″ long to keep! We can also keep groupers and some types of snapper too.

The offshore overnight trips are the main focus for the savvy customer that just can’t get enough! We are really doing well in those trips with all of the diversity of fish available to us. We have caught yellowfins, blackfins, wahoo, amberjack, and many others too!

We still have some opening for trips in the 2012 season so give us a call to get your dates!

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...]
