Summer on Alabama’s gulf coast offers the best summer vacation fishing charters. We have a lot hot days that are excellent for getting on our charter boat and taking the family on their first time, deep sea fishing charter. Our weather pattern is usually pretty calm except for an occasional afternoon thundershower. The showers are a great way to cool down after an exhausting day on the saltwater fishing.
Our summer charter fishing season is the best time for family anglers and first time anglers to hire a guide and go out and catch your first reef fish like the Red Snapper or King Mackerel. The 6 hour fishing charter offers some of the best light tackle fishing on the entire gulf.
Fall fishing in Gulf Shores offers great fishing and the October fishing rodeo. The past few years have been difficult. The Red Snapper fishery until 2007 lasted until October 31of each year. Now with the fishery closed, has caused a lack of participation from many Alabama anglers. However, saltwater guides that are proactive and involved with and participate in fishing conservation are still staying busy.
The fall fishing is great for those light tackle anglers that want to have fun and catch fish. The only options are a short 6 hour deep sea, bottom fishing charter or go out for a whole day and fish for Amberjack and Grouper.
The winter Redfish charter fishing season begins with the arrival of the bull Redfish. Now you are talking about the ultimate winter charter. These magnificent monster Redfish show up around the last week of October and are usually plentiful throughout the winter months of November, December, January and February of each year. We can still go out and catch and release any species of reef fish that you want during the winter season. The problem is, it usually takes a longer trip to catch nice fish on a short deep sea fishing charter because most of them move out to deeper water during this season.
The fishing weather is our biggest factor during the winter fishing season in Alabama. We normally have mild fishing weather during November and December. Our worst months for weather is January through March. However, the bull Redfish bite well in sloppy, cold days. If you want to read more about winter fishing and the fish you can catch, please read about winter Redfishing on our website.
Spring is the time of the year when we really get some whacky weather and some great fishing. The months of March, April and May each year, we have cold fronts that pass every three or four days. The problem is finding anglers that are flexible on their fishing dates in case the weather is foul.
With that being said, spring break fishing in Gulf Shores is celebrated by the fishermen with the arrival of the Spanish Mackerel fish. The Spanish show up every year by the tens of thousands and are available for family anglers and spring breakers to catch. If you would like to read more about spring break fishing, please read about our Spanish Mackerel on this site.
The arrival of the migratory Cobia is what every Gulf Shores charter boat waits for every year. Cobia fishing is a specialty fishing charter that is ideal for fly-fishermen or sight fishermen that want to go out and try to catch a monster fish.
The Spring Cobia run starts during the last two weeks of March each year but that all depends on the spring weather and the water temperature. The past couple of years, we have found the Cobia fishing starting to get good when the spring water temperature gets above 70 degrees. The best cobia spring fishing has been from Mid to late April and goes into the month of May. To read more about cobia fishing charters in the spring, please visit our cobia fishing page or our spring break fishing page.
