Despite the crush of the recent federal fishing regulations resulting in 11 day (June 1 – June 11) recreational harvest season in 2014; AAA Charters offers plenty of opportunities to fish for red snapper. The population of red snapper is abundant off our Alabama & Northern Florida shores and can be caught & released year round while harvesting other species such as vermillion snapper, white snapper, and amberjack.
Several of the head boats (also known as party boats) are participating in an electronic logbook pilot program that has allowed these larger vessels to offer 8 Hr. red snapper charter trips (harvesting 2 red snapper per person) throughout the Spring and Fall of 2014. These trips typically have 20-35 anglers per trip at a cost of $125 per angler, $50 for riders.
A handful of our six passenger Orange Beach AL area fishing charter boats will be fishing in Florida state waters and offering red snapper fishing charters from May 24 – July 14, 2014!! Only a few boats in the area will have the flexibility to legally fish the 50+ Florida recreational red snapper season, and available dates are already starting to book up. If you have a vacation planned to visit this summer, and want to harvest red snapper, call AAA Charters @ 251-609-2525 to learn the details and dates of the trips available. Saturdays are filling at a rapid pace, so make your reservations soon so you aren’t left at the dock.
