Ask a local angler and they’ll tell you summer isn’t the only time you can reel in a great catch in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. According to the Alabama Gulf Seafood organization, during the fall and winter months, anglers can reel in amberjack, Spanish mackerel, flounder, mullet, sheepshead, grouper and more. Once you’ve reeled in your catch, there are more than two dozen Gulf Shores and Orange Beach restaurants eager to cook your catch for you. It doesn’t get any fresher than that!
When visitors consider fishing at the beach, charter fishing is often the first thing that comes to mind. With one of the largest charter fishing fleets in the Southeast, you’ll easily find a captain ready to take you out on the water. Inshore and nearshore charters, as well as deep sea fishing trips, are available all year on Alabama’s coast. Depending on the size of your group, you may consider a private charter or a party boat – a shared-expense charter with 15 or more passengers aboard.
