Family fishing is red hot during the last week of July, 2011. Even though the Red Snapper season closed on the 18th, families with kids are still starving for some great light tackle action in the Gulf of Mexico. Distraction is running two charters a day and still catching big fish. You will have to release these giant sized fish until they come back into season in June 2012. The fishing is awesome and we are catching some really good and hard pulling fish. The Cobia bite has slowed a bit, but we are still catching some and families are loving to watch them dance on the water as they fight to get away. We decided to listen to our customers and keep fishing for big fish instead of going to the trysler grounds and catching baby vermilion snapper and red porgy to eat. Our guests find that boring and tell us that they can catch those size fish back home. The Larger reef fish offer a big fight on light tackle and everyone is lining up this summer to get their chance to catch one. At this time, we have limited space available for the next couple of weeks. It is extremely important to book your Orange Beach fishing charter early, so you get the charter you want.
