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.

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!

This article was written and published by Captain Johnny Greene of Intimidator Sportfishing and can be viewed in its original format here.

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!

Red Snapper

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council reminds recreational anglers that the Gulf of Mexico red snapper recreational season closes 12:01 a.m. local time July 24, 2010. The season will reopen Jun 1, 2011. However, because of the Deepwater Horizon/BP Oil Spill and the resulting fishing area closure, a reduction in effort may have prevented the recreational quota from being filled. The Gulf Council has requested that, should NOAA Fisheries determine the quota has not been filled, that it conduct rulemaking to reopen recreational red snapper fishing later this year to allow the harvest of the remaining quota.

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council is one of eight regional fishery management councils established by the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976. The Council prepares fishery management plans designed to manage fishery resources in the federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
