Fall and Winter Charter Fishing Seasons in Gulf Shores, Alabama are good. The fall of each year along the gulf coast of Alabama offers family anglers, some of the most pleasant charter fishing seasons.

Fall Fishing is Fun in Alabama
No matter which seasonal fishing trip you want to take with us, there is always some good fish to catch during the fall and winter months. The months of September and October each year produce some good Amberjack and Grouper fishing. The reason the fishing is so good during the fall months is because of a lack of fishing pressure from all of the gulf coasts charter boats. Summer fishing is our busiest time of the year and it causes a lot of fishing pressure on the artificial reefs that we catch bottom fish on. The fall season months are an excellent time to take a long deep sea fishing trip like the 10 hour or longer trip to try and catch Amberjack, Vermilion Snapper and Grouper. The 6 hour bottom fishing trip is a great time to go catch some nice Red Snapper on light fishing tackle or on a fly rod. The Red Snapper season is closed during this time of the year so you will have to release them. They do make for a good picture and an excellent fight. We are responsible and do everything we can to safely release the snapper by practicing conservation and are currently working with the NMFS to reduce by-catch.
Gulf Shores Winter Redfish Fishing Is Red Hot
The winter months in Gulf Shores begin during November. That is when the Bull Redfish show up along the gulf shores of Alabama. These 4 and 6 hour winter Redfish fishing trips are wonderful for those sport fishermen that want to go out just off of the beach and catch some big Redfish that fight hard on light tackle. We catch the Redfish by sight fishing or by trolling fishing. Sometimes it is a combination of both. Bull Red fishing charter seasons last until the end of March every year during the Gulf Shores spring break fishing season. At that time, it is spring fishing season is in full swing and we start fishing for spring Cobia and Spanish mackerel.
Cold Day Makes Better Redfishing
The best time to catch Bull Redfish is to be on the saltwater just after a cold front has just passed. The northwest wind that comes in just after the cold front passes, creates ideal conditions for Redfish fishing. The cool breeze pushes the baitfish away from the shoreline and the Redfish come in near the shore line to feed on them. Sometimes, we will be sight fishing and it is not uncommon to see a pod of over 1000 Bullreds on top of the water feeding. You might want to bring your saltwater fly-fishing gear and try to catch a nice redfish.
