FALLING FOR ALABAMA'S GULF COAST HOOK, LINE AND SINKER

Orange Beach, Gulf Shores and Fort Morgan are home to some of the best saltwater fishing you could ever dream of. Here's why.

Offshore Reefs

No other state in the nation has built or continues to build as many artificial reefs as Alabama with the help of the federal government and local fishermen. Since the early 1950s, these groups have constructed and sunk thousands of artificial reefs on the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. Anglers from the Gulf states and beyond flock to Alabama waters to catch snapper, grouper, amberjack, cobia, triggerfish and king mackerel.

The Nation's Only Trolling Alley

To improve fishing for king mackerel and Spanish mackerel, the State of Alabama, working with conservation organizations, private companies, fishing captains and anglers has sunk over 200-obsolete voting machines in a line just off the beach to create feeding stations for pelagic species like Spanish mackerel and king mackerel where fishermen can troll for them.

Inshore Reefs

No other state has created as many inshore artificial reefs to attract speckled trout, redfish, flounder and white trout as Alabama has in this part of the Gulf of Mexico.

Bank Fishing

From the jetties at Alabama Point to the tip of West Beach, you'll find some of the most outstanding surf fishing anywhere. The nearby Intracoastal Canal also offers a productive place for bank anglers to fish for inshore species as do the bays and bayous.

Easy Access to Sport Fishing

To reach Alabama's fantastic offshore artificial fishing reefs, the Alabama Gulf Coast offers a large fleet of over 100 charter boats that can be booked for 6-hour, 8-hour, 12-hour and/or overnight trips or longer. Besides bottom fishing, experienced captains provide excellent sport fishing opportunities out of the port of Orange Beach for blue marlin, dolphin, wahoo, tarpon and tuna. Too, with a fine fleet of inshore fishing guides, you can experience some of the finest speckled trout, redfish, flounder and white trout fishing in the country from the Fort Morgan Peninsula all the way to Alabama Point. These seasoned guides know how to insure family fun and find fish.

Come play hooky on the Alabama Gulf Coast where the fish you caught gain weight each time you tell the tale!
