Amberjack Season is Open Again in Federal Waters as of Aug 1, 2014!
When an Amberjack is on your line, get ready for a fight! It is common for Gulf of Mexico Greater Amberjack to weigh in at 20-50 lbs, but the current Alabama State Record for Amberjack is 127 lbs 12 ozs. Amberjacks are aggressive predators, strong swimmers, and are a blast to catch.
Over 20,000 artificial reefs along our coast provide ideal habitat for reef reef including Amberjack, Groupers, and Snappers
For decades the charter boat captains of the Alabama Gulf Coast have invested thousands of dollars each year to deploy artificial reefs to the Gulf waters to provide ideal habitats for reef fish to gather and grow. When our captains take you deep sea fishing, many of the spots that are fished are above reefs they have built throughout the years. Our captains treat these fishing locations like gardens that can be pruned, but not completed harvested. Normally our captains are keeping close watch on the fish caught and will move on once a certain number of fish go in the fish box to leave some fish to breed and be caught again another day. The fish populations of the Gulf of Mexico is a great natural resource we treat with respect and conservation.
Gray Triggerfish Season is also open in FL State Waters (out to 9 NM)
August 1, 2014 FL state waters opened for recreational harvest of triggerfish again this year. These are TASTY fish and a favorite of locals and visitors alike. These fish are caught while bottom fishing above the artificial reefs the speckle the Alabama and Florida Gulf Coast.
