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.

captain Johnny Greene's The IntimidatorOrange Beach / Gulf Shores, AL – We have been fishing a fair amount over this month so far and have had some great trips mixed in with some good weather to go with it.  The 4 hour trolling trips are starting to pick back up as the water clears out from Tropical Storm Lee.  We are seeing some impressive number of Spanish Mackerel starting to show up too.  The half day family trips are continuing to be a great trip with lots of fun and smiles for all the family’s who choose this option to spend some time on a charter fishing trip.

The full day trips are doing really good with big Amberjacks right now as that season continues to be just red-hot!  We have had some wonderful catches of Jacks on the full day trips.  Keep in mind on these trips sometimes it is not the hours you are buying but the fuel and you will be happy when you get back to the dock with a cart of pretty fish!

The biggest high light of the fall so far is that the big triggerfish are starting [Read more...]

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.”
