Great Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Trip – 8HR Trolling & Bottom Fishing Combo

AAA Charters offers Shared Expense (Semi-private Walk-on) Fishing Charters all year & Fall can be Fabulous Fishing

Deep Sea fishing along the Alabama Gulf Coast has drawn visitors to the communities of Orange Beach AL and Gulf Shores AL for decades. Fall is a favorite time of the year along the Alabama Gulf Coast for many, both visitors and locals. The peak of our tourist season has passed, the weather can offer highs in the 70-80 degrees and low in the mid 60’s. It is also a great time of the year for fishing!
For many, a fishing trip is a highlight of their vacation, but not everyone is in the position to hire a boat for themselves. We offer fishing for individuals and small groups that are partnered with other anglers to charter a boat together. We offer shorter shared expense (semi-private/”walk-on”) charters trolling for near-shore pelagic species and well as longer combination trips that add bottom fishing for reef fish species. Alabama’s Artificial Reef Zone with over 20,000 reefs that are ideal habitats for the treasures of the reef fishery and can be reeled in year round and our captains can take you to the fish.

Shared Expense 8 HR Deep Sea Fishing on the Luxury Charter Boat Big Adventure Tuesday Oct 11 ’16 $180/anger

Big Adventure charter boat is a 60′ Sportfisherman featuring a spacious deck, air conditioned cabin, marine head, stereo, and featuring a BIG GREEN EGG SMOKER.This crew is highly experienced fishing the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. During recent year, the majority of AL deep sea fishing trips are six hour trips. This eight hour trip will give Captain Jimmy Waller the opportunity to travel further offshore than the grounds most commonly fished by our fleet. The day will begin with near shore trolling, fishing with a bait line behind the moving boat for pelagic fish species such as spanish & king Mackerel (the bite of both species remains strong). Once the boat arrives above a reef, everyone will have the opportunity to fish at once targeting a wide variety of fish that live near these structures on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. This time of year we can harvest a variety of snappers including vermillion, lane, white & black snapper; groupers (gag & shallow water); and skamp. We will also be catch & releasing red snapper, amberjack, & triggerfish. Trolling continues as the boat returns to port. These eight hour trips offers a great opportunity to reel in a variety of fish while on a comfortable luxury fishing vessel with a crew focused on the enjoyment and success of the anglers aboard.

Alabama deep sea fishing charters for reef fish, also known as bottom fishing, have been one of the most popular off-shore fishing trips off our shores for decades. Gulf of Mexico waters off the Alabama coast are a salt water anglers paradise, including fishing grounds of one of the world’s largest artificial reef zones (3108 km2, 20,000 structures). Since the 1950’s, our captains continue to invest in building these “private” fishing spots for their angler’s saltwater adventures. Our reefs have become the home to a diverse population of Reef Fish Species including snapper, groupers, amberjack and triggerfish. Click here to view the Deep Sea Bottom Fish we catch. The 8 HR trip we are planning should increase the opportunity to find some vermillon and white snapper and maybe some grouper!

Gulf of Mexico Red Snapper Fishing Charters – BREAKING NEWS for 2015!

AL Gulf Coast Red Snapper Fishing Charters Booking Now – June 1 – at least July 10, 2015!!!

Deep Sea Fishing charters are going to be booming this summer along the AL Gulf Coast! Come experience the thrill of offshore fishing in one of the most productive fishing grounds on the plant! Fishermen, Alabama Charter Boat Captains & the State of Alabama have spent over 50 years building 20,000+ artificial reefs (ideal fishing spots) creating productive habitats for bottom fish, including the very popular red snapper.
Prior to the introduction of oil rigs to the Gulf of Mexico in the 1950’s, red snapper were rare in this area of the Gulf. The introduction of structures to the Gulf bottom created ideal habitat for reef fish and fish populations have grown throughout the years. Gulf of Mexico waters south of Gulf Shores AL & Orange Beach AL are thick with red snapper and our captains can take you there to reel them in! The average size of a “keeper” red snapper is about 8 lbs, but these long living fish get much bigger! The current AL State Record for red snapper is held by Melvin E. Dunn, Jr at 44 lbs. 12 oz. set in June of 2002.

Sector Separation Becomes Law – Great News for Gulf of Mexico Charter Boat Anglers!

2014 was the shortest federal red snapper season in history at 9 days (June 1 – June 9, 2014). April 10, 2015 the Secretary of Commerce approved federal regulations (Gulf Council Amendment 40) the charter industry, including AAA Charters, has been working on for nearly a decade – sector separation! The federal government now assigns a percentage of the red snapper quota to the federally permitted Gulf of Mexico charter boats. These regulations were designed to increase opportunities for anglers that don’t own their own boats or our visiting our coastal communities to fish with one of the fleet of Gulf of Mexico charter boat captains. Our captains & crews continue to work with Federal & State officials and agencies to provide accurate reporting of the fish harvested and released while fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.

Spring is a favorite time of the year for our fleet of charter boat captains.

Come join one of captains & crews and catch some of the cobia fever.

Not only can these rapidly growing fish reach 100 lbs, & nearly 6 feet long; they are tasty. Cobia has a very white, flaky texture and is typically not a very oily or high fat fish. This makes the fillet great for cooking in a variety of ways, as it takes on the flavor of additions very well without an over-riding fishy flavor.
