In Orange Beach, if you hear someone say Red Snapper, everyone goes “Ah – Ok!”. If you hear the word Shark, everyone goes “Awesome – Let me see it.” The reality is, Shark fishing on the Alabama Gulf Coast is one of the most heart pounding and neat fishing trips you can take. We don’t fish for sharks like they did in the movie “Jaws.” We catch them while fishing for other species of reef fish. It is definitely not for the faint of heart. You need to be ready for a fight that will last anywhere from 30 minutes to over a couple of hours. The best thing about shark fishing is you can do it and still catch other species of fish.
