Deep Sea Fishing Charters in the Gulf of Mexico – Highlight of many Spring Vacations to Gulf Shores & Orange Beach AL

AAA Charters captains have been building fishing spots in the Gulf of Mexico for decades. The result of deploying all of these reefs is that these structures are now the home for abundant populations of various reef fish species making our water some most productive (and considered among the best) fishing grounds in the US. We bottom fish for these reef species that are attracted to structures year-round including triggerfish, amberjack, grouper and several types of snappers. Which fish can be harvested changes throughout the year depending on federal & state regulations (ask AAA Charters for details) .

Burial at Sea for Weseley “Geno” Jones

Last week two of Geno’s close friends from Bloomington, IL made the road trip to Gulf Shores AL with the purpose of having a burial at sea for their recently passed buddy. The came into town on a Sunday, and were pleasantly surprised when they wandered into the Florabama for the first time and it happened to be the last night of the Frank Brown Songwriters Festival (Great Live Music on the beach). Captain Mike Salley took them offshore into the Gulf of Mexico aboard his six passenger charter boat Sure Shot. The current was strong that day. The wreath that was released with the ashes likely traveled quite a distance! They stopped in Memphis TN on the way home for some BBQ.

Once the flag was folded, and held by a solider at attention in front of the next of kin, the other members of the Honor Guard moved to the field behind and fired three volleys each. The youngest in the family watched a bit amazed by the ceremony.

Codell McCann’s Charter for a Burial at Sea along his favorite beach

The McCann Family chartered one of the larger boats in the charter fleet, known as headboats or party boats, that could accommodate the group of 40 for a 2 Hr. Burial at Sea. Mac was fond of the beaches of Gulf Shores, Alabama and the family requested to ride 3 miles offshore along these sugar white sands to spread his ashes. This burial at sea cruise gave the family to opportunity to continue to mingle together in the peaceful setting of a sunny day on the Alabama Gulf of Mexico shores to say their final farewells to a man they love.
