Federal Red Snapper Season – We have trips open!
The first week of June is ideal for taking a red snapper fishing charter with an Alabama Charter Boat. The federal recreational red snapper season for 2014 is June 1 – June 9, 2014, so come get them while you can. We still have a few openings available this week for deep sea fishing charters targeting snappers.
Ever since our fisherman in the 1950’s noticed that reef fish seemed to be attracted to the structures of the oil rigs that were being drilled in the Gulf of Mexico, the Alabama fishing fleet and our state and local governments have invested in building 20,000 fishing spots that dot the waters off the Alabama coast (creating one of the largest reef zones in the world). Before, the bottom of our Gulf of Mexico waters were like a desert with little or no structure. Then we began building reefs. Our waters were like sparsely settled pockets of fish across vast waters; building reefs was like building condos, and red snapper, along with a variety of other reef fish, moved in, stayed, and continue to build up the red snapper population off our shores.
Now our reef are THICK with red snapper that have been averaging larger and larger weights each year. NOW is the PRIME TIME to go red snapper fishing off the Alabama Gulf Coast. Charters departing from Orange Beach, Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan Alabama. Call AAA Charter today to make a reservations while trips are still available. Come hook up with a big one.
