We just wrapped up the February 2011 Kaiser Realty Tour of Condos and the turn out has been great. The event featured properties from both Kaiser Realty’s Rental and Sales Departments, providing opportunities for both those looking to book for next year and those looking for a more permanent residence on the Gulf Coast. Each year, Kaiser offers incentives for advanced bookings for those who come to the Tour; and now we are allowing you to take the tour from the comfort of your computer and take advantage of the incentives yourself.

Today, we featured nine properties along the beautiful beaches of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. For information on the individual properties on the tour, simply click on the links that follow. (properties listed from west to east along Beach Blvd)

Our friends from Golf Gulf Shores have just released their February Golf Tip:

“Technology has changed many things over the past few years: balls go farther and spin better, clubs are lighter with bigger sweet spots and shoes are a far cry from the old all leather “Goodyear welt construction” models with tungsten spikes.  Technology has also changed the way we get our information.  We live in a world now where we are bombarded by one message after another through many media channels (this newsletter being one of them).  Local media outlets have picked up on the fact that weather is one of the topics that grabs a lot of attention and can drive ratings.  The technology of collecting weather data and forecasting storms and conditions has improved dramatically over the recent year but weather for the most part is still “forecasting”.

The definition of forecasting is “to predict (a future condition or occurrence); calculate in advance.”  This means that with all the technology and computer models the reports of tomorrow’s weather are good guesses, not fact.  Most forecasts are very accurate these days but even if they are correct, the way we perceive the forecast may make us modify our plans in a given day.  How many times have you canceled a round of golf you had booked because the local weather station reported a 100% chance of rain tomorrow?  How many times could you have actually gotten all 18 holes of your round in these times you canceled your round?  A forecast for 100% chance of rain is 100% accurate if the rain comes after 7:00 PM.  A storm can push through a given area in about 45 minutes even if it happens to come right in the middle of the round but clear out with very pleasant conditions right after.  You can still get your full round in with a short delay.

Next time you have a round scheduled and the forecast is for the weather to be sub par, please don’t cancel your tee-time but instead head out to the course and try to play your round regardless of what the weather man may say.  You will likely get your entire round in with no issues.  Remember, it is only a prediction and even the best forecaster is right only a portion of the time.  As many have said, a bad day on the course is better than a good day elsewhere.  What else would you be doing if you cancel your round?  The forecast here this spring in Gulf Shores/Orange beach is to be sunny and warm!  We hope to see you getting in a round here regardless of the forecast.”

Many people are starting to think about charting a boat for a fishing trip this year. Our good friend, Captain Johnny Greene of the Charter Boat Intimidator, has provided some important fishing dates about the 2011 fishing seasons.  

“For the 2011 fishing season, red snapper will open on June 1 and close sometime in late July or perhaps maybe into August which would have been approximately the same number of days as we had in 2009.

However, there are some changes within our fishery for the 2011 season.  Amberjack is currently open but it will close concurrently while red snapper season is open. It will then reopen August 1 for the remainder of the year.

Gag grouper will open for harvest on October 16th and subsequently close November 15th of this year.  However, other grouper species will reopen April 1st.  At this time, the deep-water grouper such as yellow edge and snowy remain unchanged and open for harvest.

The vast majority of all the deep-water off shore oil rigs are open for to the fishing at this time. Fishing has been good offshore and we’re expecting a banner year.

On the shorter trips for King and Spanish mackerel, nothing has changed. We expect the King mackerel to show up in late April, as always, and the Spanish to show back up sometime in March.

The Vermilion snapper, white snapper and triggerfish remained open year-round and fishing for the species has been very good for 6 to 8 hour trips.

We are currently booking charter fishing trips on the Intimidator for the upcoming 2011 fishing year. We hope you will join us for a fun filled deep-sea adventure this year.”
