Alabama Cobia Fishing Charters – Highlight of Spring Deep Sea Fishing on the AL Gulf Coast

Spring is a favorite time of the year for our fleet of charter boat captains. Many of them truly love fishing for cobia as they move into our coastal Florida & Alabama waters in the spring as they migrate west and to deeper waters as summer approaches. The Captain watch from the tower above to spot these fish, and eels are often the bait of choice. Most days of the spring, our captains are out hunting these fish with or without a charter aboard. Come join one of captains & crews and catch some of the cobia fever.

AL State Record Cobia – 117 lbs. 7 oz set by Captain Ben Fairey 4/18/95 Come set a new Record!

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.

Gulf Shores Fishing Charters Spring Break 2015 – Most Popular Trip

Inshore (also known as Back Bay) Fishing Charters have been the most popular fishing trips along the Alabama Gulf Coast this spring. These trips are typically 4 Hour private charters of 1-6 anglers on one of the fleet of 24′-26′ back bay center console skiffs. We have professional, experienced captains whose full attention is focused on finding the fish, and showing your group how to reel them in. We use light tackle and live bait to attract a big bite. AAA Charters can also pair single angler or couples together to share the expense of in inshore fishing charters, like this group of that fished together in Mid-March 2015 with Captain Marty Starling.

What’s Biting along the Alabama Gulf Coast Spring 2015

The second week of March this year offered a challenging forecast for arranging fishing charters for those traveling to the beach for Spring Breaks. A low pressure system sat in the western Gulf of Mexico and pumped rain across the entire Southeast US all week long. AAA Charters knew that several kids had their hearts set on having the opportunity to fish during their Spring Break visits to Alabama. We kept our eyes on the radar screen all week allowing us to set up family fishing charters during the longer rain breaks and the FISH BITE WAS ON! There were lots of big smiles from anglers this week and some coolers of fish for the captain to clean!

Despite the radar looking this way often the 2nd week of March, AAA Charters still managed to schedule family inshore fishing trips between the storms!

Great Trips for families to spend quality time together fishing along the coast. The captain & boat are all YOURS!

For example, if the kids spot some wild dolphins and want to watch them for awhile, fine. If you want to stop at Pirate’s Cove or along one of the barrier island to swim a bit, you can! We are here to make your ideal adventures happen.
