Orange Beach Fishing for Amberjack

Brian is no stranger to catching big fish. He loves to fish for those fighting amberjacks. We headed South today to try and get out to an area that has been known to produce some nice jacks. We rode for 3 hours and about 3 miles before we got to where we wanted to fish, we ran into a major thunderstorm that went from East to West for over 20 miles with lightning. Well, we made a right turn to avoid the storm. We fished several spots and only caught red snapper and vermilion snapper. As usual, the bite slowed about 11 am but picked up again around 2 pm. We finally made some amberjacks bite but they were smaller 24 to 26 inches. We can only keep 28″ and larger. Well, Lem pulled a trick out of the had and sent Brian down and goodness gracious, wham!!! A nice 33 inch amberjack was caught. We caught and released quite a few more and caught another legal jack to take to the house. We sure enjoy watching Brian fight those amberjack on light tackle.
