Alabama Spring Break Charter Fishing Season
Spring Deep Sea Charter Fishing is the kick off of the fishing season in Gulf Shores, Alabama. We have our charter boat polished and ready to go for the spring charter season. The weather during March, April and May of each year can be pretty mild between passing cold fronts. There are a lot of days we have weak cold fronts approaching the Alabama gulf coast that cause a strong southeast wind that causes 4 to 6 foot seas. Those are the days we don't go and try to re-schedule. There are a lot of days inbetween spring cold fronts that allow us to get our family anglers and spring breakers out deep sea fishing. We do have some days that are colder than others. Our cold fronts are mostly over by this charter season. Spring is the time when everyone starts heading to Orange Beach, Fort Morgan and Gulf Shores for that much needed time away from school.
Bottom Fishing and Trolling During Spring Break
Our 4 and 6 hour deep sea fishing trips can be wonderful in the spring. However, March is kind of a transitional period for fishing. The water temperature is between 60 and 65 degrees on the surface, just off the gulf shores. The Redfish are starting to move further offshore at this time and become less consistent. The good thing is the Spanish mackerel show up on their annual migratory journey. The first week in April of each year, the full moon makes the Spanish really come in close to shore. They are a blast to catch and they taste great also.
Alabama Spring Cobia Fish Show Up
The spring break fishing season is also the time of the year when the Cobia show up. The Cobia Fish is usually swimming just off the second sand bar of Orange Beach and Gulf Shores. They are swimming to the west, just under the surface of the water. Most people get in the fishing tower of their chartered fishing boat and ride and use sight fishing as their primary method of fishing. You can ride for hours and not see anything and then all of a sudden, your spring break fishing trip just turned into a spring fishing charter of a lifetime. Those spring cobia offer the most experienced angler and spring breakers one awesome fight.
