Gulf Shores Fishing Charters

There are dozens of spots along the Gulf Coast that offer just about everything, but Gulf Shores, Alabama, may just offer more than everything. The area is steeped in history, sunshine, culture and unmatched natural beauty. At the heart of it all are more than 30 miles of white beaches that the locals will be quick to tell you are made almost entirely of fine, quartz grains washed down from the Appalachian Mountains thousands of years ago.

Gulf Shores is in Baldwin County and nobody argues the fact that the beach is one of the finest in the world.

And there’s lots more. Plenty of places to stay, eat and play in addition to the beach.  And then there’s the fishing. Most people don’t come here to fish, but if they find out about the fishing, they don’t leave without giving it a try. Booking an inland or offshore charter, or spending some time on a fishing pier is definitely worth the time, money and effort.

Gulf Shores is truly a place where the family or a group of friends can have a fantastic vacation adventure and make a fishing trip or two part of the trip that won’t be forgotten. There are giant hotels right on the beach or smaller condos or vacation rentals off the beach that offer good rates and great accommodations. If variety is the spice of life, then this place is hotter than a pepper. There’s a little bit of everything.

Gulf Shores Inshore Fishing

The largest fishing pier on the Gulf of Mexico can be found at the Gulf State Fishing pier. It’s 1,600 feet long, 20 feet wide and has everything you need for a quick fishing trip from licenses, bait and concessions.

If you want to get out in a boat, there are dozens of options.

Perdido Bay is a massive inland body of water that offers fantastic fishing. There is also fishing in the Bay La Launch area, Wolf Bay and Bayou St. John. It’s also not a long run back to the West and up into the massive Bon Secour Bay, home of the Gulf Islands National Seashore.

Perdido Bay stretches all the way from Gulf Shores to Pensacola and there are dozens of guides and charter boats available to take you on a once-in-a-lifetime trip.  Depending on the season, deep-sea fisherman can expect to find redfish, skipjack, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, speckled trout, red snapper, grouper, cobia, jack crevalle, triggerfish, or amberjack in the nearby waters. You can also catch flounder, speckled trout, black drum, red drum, pompano, ladyfish, bluefish and tripletail.

Night fishing is best in the back bay areas near the piers with artificial lighting, where speckled trout, redfish, and flounder can be found. Even beach fishing can yield some big catches of king mackerel, amberjack, cobia, flounder, bluefish, tarpon, and tuna. The area is also a great spot for going out kayaking and bird watching from the water.

Gulf Shores Offshore Fishing

No matter what time of year you visit Gulf Shores, there’s something out there in the water wanting to chase your bait. As the water cools down in the fall and enters winter, there is some great offshore fishing for big gamefish like white marlin and sailfish. For a productive day of bottom fishing, you can’t beat the offshore reefs for the likes of red and white snapper, amberjack Vermilion snapper, grouper, spanish mackerel, king mackerel and wahoo. In the fall, fish move in as close as 20-30 miles from the shore, making chasing them a fairly easy trip. The bull redfish also run this time of year closer in as do speckled trout and white trout.

Spring brings a fantastic cobia migration as well as more amberjack and snapper. And in the summer, the fish don’t go on vacation. In fact, this is the most popular time of the year for fishing charters and loading the ice chest.

Summer months are especially good for catching offshore species like red snapper as well as white, Vermillion, Lane and Mangrove snapper, shark, triggerfish, grouper, mackerel, marlin and tuna.

Spend some time figuring out what you would like to catch and then plan your Gulf Shores fishing trip. Just like the rest of the area, fishing opportunities are wide and varied.
