The way we sight fish in saltwater off Alabama, is we put you and another angler in the tuna tower and ride along, looking for fish on the surface of the saltwater or just under the surface like the cobia. We also use binoculars to spot birds diving into the water to help find a school of mackerel or Redfish. We drive the boat toward the fish hitting the bait on top water and we allow you to cast into school of fish with either traditional tackle,light tackle or by using your fly fishing tackle.

If you are relying on this type of fishing to produce fish and you get impatient, you can always have the mate put out some trolling fishing lines to see if you can hook up on the fish that are on the bottom or are simply just not on the surface of the gulf. You also have a choice to head offshore and do some chumming fishing on some Alabama artificial reefs. This type of fishing will bring most of the fish species on the reef to the surface so you may cast your light tackle or fly fishing gear at them and try to get a bite.
