Many of you want to go out on a charter fishing boat and catch something amazing. The thought of catching a fish from the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico makes grown men trimble and kids not sleep at night.
Some people call deep-sea fishing in Gulf Shores, "Reef Fishing or Bottom Fishing" and that is correct. When I think of deep sea fishing, I think of dropping a baited hook below the charter boat and wait on a fish to bite my hook. Well, there is so much more you can do when you use the term deep-sea fishing.
Alabama deep-sea fishing includes bottom or reef fishing and trolling. You have to go a long way south of Gulf Shores to get to deep water. Most of the gulf water that is south of the Gulf Shores area is pretty shallow as compared to other areas that are thousands of feet deep. Right off the beach, we start out fishing in 20 to 25 feet of water. The water progressively gets deeper the further offshore we go. At 10 to20 miles, the water is anywhere from 80 to 100 feet deep. Now if you go southeast about 30 miles, it gets to 600 to 700 feet. If you go 40 miles south, it it around 200 to 250 feet deep before it drops off to about 1300 to 1700 feet deep. Our geographic area allows us to fish deep-sea but most of the fishing is done in water that is less than 125 feet. Full day trips that fish south, get to about 200 to 250 feet regularly. So when you think of deep sea fishing in Alabama, it is much more than simply heading right off the beach and fishing in deep water. We as responsible anglers, are required by law to have afish venting tool onboard.
