Light Tackle Fishing Yields Big Red Snapper and Cobia
The Hunter family from Tulsa, Ok. came all the way to Orange Beach for a family vacation. Joel and Karen brought Ryan, Bryant, Rachel and Jonathan out on a light tackle deep sea fishing trip. Today was a six hour trip. The weather was overcast and the water temperature was 7 degrees lower than the previous day. We pulled up on a few spots and the Red Snapper greeted us on top of the water. We kept fishing with our light tackle and Rachel caught a big Cobia right behind the boat. It weighed 31 lbs. Her boyfriend Jonathan caught a monster 18 pound red snapper just after that. It seemed that the big snapper were going to bite all afternoon. We returned to Orange Beach with some exhausted customers. Catching so many fish was overwhelming. We really enjoy watching family members interact with each other. Smiling, Laughing and just a great time is what they got today along with a great fish bite.
