Have you ever thought about Fishing in Orange Beach? Get away with the Hell Boy II and crew to the beautiful island of Orange Beach AL. For these 8-12 hour trips you can expect to go much further out to sea. The longer the trip the further out you can explore, and inherently, the bigger fish you can pursue! But out at these depths you can try for Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, and maybe even some billfish like Sailfish or Marlin! The trip depends on your preferences and some expert captain advice of course! Hey Boy II has been a charter vessel since 1990 and has put smiles on thousands of faces during that time. Hey Boy II is a 36ft. Topaz powered by twin Cummins diesel engines which provide a fast ride to the best fishing spots. The boat is equipped with all of the amenities of home and is maintained to the highest standards to ensure you a safe and comfortable fishing trip. As an added piece of mind, we inspect all of our safety equipment on board on a regular basis to make sure it’s up to date and ready to use in case of an emergency. We also offer all the fishing equipment you’ll need such as rods, reels, bait and tackle. We keep the tackle well maintained so your time can be spent fighting the fish, not the fishing equipment. We want to make sure you have the best opportunity to reel in the big ones so our mates are always helpful. It’s always a pleasure to watch our guests catch their first big fish or to see our repeat customers top their record. Read More

trip description for Offshore Center Console in Gulf Shores

Minutes of Use is a 31 foot center console (cape horn) with twin 300 horse power Suzuki engines. The boat name is sometimes confusing since it also the name of the charter company. She is a no-frills fishing boat we used as a personal tournament fishing boat for years before we started the charter business. She is fast and economical with a large fishing deck. The down side is that she has limited shade and a portable head. We ride on bean bags, which are very comfortable, on the trip out and back in to the dock. This boat is what most of the fishing charters in the area use because they are fast and the most economical. They are perfect for 4-6 hour trips because of the speed and versatility, and the very large fishing area that allows people to spread out while they fish. With 6 fishermen it is not crowded and all 6 are able to fish at the same time and avoid tangled lines. For longer trips you need to be aware that shade is limited and prepare accordingly as well the head (potty) is a portable. More like tent camping than using a RV. 4 hour trips we generally go after whatever is biting and it is all about having fun catching fish not worrying about a specific species rather focusing on what is close and the bite is hot. With limited time we do not want to spend the time riding, we want to be fishing and catching fish. 6 hour trips (half day) during snapper season we go after limits of snapper then start working on other fish that have been biting. We generally get a limit with a few large snapper and some other fish species. We do not focus on all big fish as we are time limited and want to make sure we get you as many fish as possible up to the limit. 8 hour trips allow the captain time to be more picky about the fish we keep so the average size of what we keep is normally larger. It also allows time to target other fish and expand the adventure. Minutes of Use is a great family and starter boat because she is open air, fast, and most affordable. Captain Walt loves working with new fishermen and youngsters, getting them hooked on deep sea fishing forever. She is the perfect boat to take the family or group of up to 6 people, and have a private trip with a captain and deck hand focused on your success and enjoyment of the day. There are plenty of fish to catch, the secret is to have fun catching them!!!! We ask you to bring wipe on sunscreen rather than spray on if at all possible as the spray gets on the floor and makes it very slick. You also need only to bring drinks, snacks, and a camera for pictures. When the trip is over the crew will clean your fish and bag them for you. the deck hand is normally the hardest working guy on the boat helping you with bait, tips on catching, rigging the rods, and all around helping make the trip easier and fun. Tipping the deck hand in customary in the 10-20% range. Captain Walt will be contacting you before the trip so if you have any questions he will be happy to answer and make sure it is a great trip.

For these nearshore trips, Captain Lynn likes to target a variety of wrecks by bottom fishing with drop shots or jigs. He'll use cut bait, live bait, and shrimp to entice the waters below. When the bite is slow he likes to mosey on out to the deeper water for some trolling. After he's rigged up his trolling gear he'll set the throttle to cruise at about 7 knots waiting to hear the reels scream. Captain Lynn's 28' Grady White comes loaded with all the rods, reels, tackle, and bait you could possibly need for a successful day out on the water. Along with a captain that just loves to be on the water helping others to catch the fish of a lifetime! Read More

What is jack crevalle fishing in Dauphin Island all about?

Jack crevalle, often simply referred to as "jacks," are a common and highly sought-after species in the waters surrounding Dauphin Island. These powerful and aggressive game fish are known for their brute strength and lightning-fast runs, providing anglers with an exhilarating challenge when hooked. Jacks can be found patrolling the nearshore and offshore waters around the island, often in search of schools of baitfish to ambush. Their distinctive dark vertical bars and torpedo-shaped bodies make them easy to identify, and their penchant for explosive strikes ensures an adrenaline-pumping fishing experience for those lucky enough to encounter them.

Fishing for jack crevalle in Dauphin Island can be both thrilling and rewarding, with anglers employing a variety of techniques to target these formidable predators. One popular method is casting from the shore or fishing from a boat using heavy spinning or casting tackle equipped with strong braided line and sturdy hooks. Anglers often target jacks around areas of structure such as jetties, piers, and submerged rocks, where these fish are known to congregate in search of prey. By casting lures such as spoons, jigs, or topwater plugs into areas where jacks are actively feeding, anglers can provoke aggressive strikes and engage in exciting battles with these powerful fish.

Despite their reputation as fierce fighters, jack crevalle are also valued for their role in the ecosystem as apex predators, helping to regulate populations of smaller fish and maintaining the balance of the marine environment. While they are not typically prized for their culinary qualities, their sporting value and sheer strength make them a favorite target among anglers visiting Dauphin Island. Whether casting from the shore, venturing offshore, or exploring the island's estuaries and bays, encountering a jack crevalle in the waters around Dauphin Island promises an unforgettable fishing experience filled with adrenaline-fueled excitement and the thrill of battling against one of the Gulf Coast's most formidable game fish.

What are the most popular months to fish for jack crevalle fishing in Dauphin Island?

Jack crevalle seasons in Dauphin Island are influenced by various environmental factors, including water temperature, baitfish migrations, and weather patterns. These powerful game fish can be found in the waters surrounding the island throughout much of the year, but their abundance and activity levels fluctuate with the changing seasons. In the warmer months, particularly from late spring through early fall, jack crevalle populations tend to peak as they follow baitfish schools and take advantage of the rich feeding grounds provided by the Gulf of Mexico. During these times, anglers often encounter schools of jacks patrolling the nearshore waters, offering exciting opportunities for anglers to target these fierce fighters.

As temperatures cool in the fall and winter months, jack crevalle may become less active in the waters around Dauphin Island. While some individuals may still be found lingering in the area, particularly in warmer pockets of water or around areas of structure such as jetties and piers, their numbers typically decrease as they migrate to warmer waters or adjust their feeding patterns in response to changing environmental conditions. However, even during the offseason, dedicated anglers can still find opportunities to target jack crevalle by adjusting their techniques and exploring different areas around the island where these fish may continue to congregate.

Understanding the seasonal variations in jack crevalle behavior is key to planning successful fishing outings around Dauphin Island. Local anglers and fishing guides often keep a close eye on water temperatures, baitfish movements, and weather patterns to predict when and where jack crevalle are most likely to be active. By staying attuned to these natural rhythms and adapting their strategies accordingly, anglers can maximize their chances of encountering jack crevalle throughout the year, ensuring that every trip to Dauphin Island's waters holds the promise of an exciting and rewarding fishing adventure.

What techniques are popular for catching jack crevalle in Dauphin Island?

Jack crevalle fishing in Dauphin Island offers anglers an exhilarating experience, requiring specific techniques tailored to the aggressive nature of these powerful game fish. One effective method for targeting jack crevalle is casting from the shore or boat using heavy spinning or casting tackle equipped with sturdy braided line and robust hooks. Anglers often target areas with active baitfish schools, such as nearshore flats, jetties, or submerged structures, where jack crevalle are known to hunt. By casting lures such as spoons, jigs, or topwater plugs into these areas and retrieving them with erratic movements, anglers can trigger explosive strikes from hungry jacks.

Another popular technique for catching jack crevalle in Dauphin Island is trolling, particularly in offshore waters where these fish may be found patrolling open water or following baitfish schools. Anglers troll a spread of lures or rigged baits behind a moving boat, covering a wide area and presenting their offerings at various depths to entice strikes from roaming jacks. This method allows anglers to cover more ground and locate productive fishing spots, making it an effective strategy for targeting jack crevalle throughout the year.

Live bait fishing is also a productive technique for targeting jack crevalle in Dauphin Island. Anglers often use live baitfish such as mullet, pinfish, or menhaden rigged on a hook or under a float to entice strikes from these aggressive predators. Live bait can be fished near the surface or weighted down to target fish at different depths, depending on the preferences of the angler and the behavior of the fish. By presenting natural prey items in a lifelike manner, anglers can often elicit powerful strikes from jack crevalle prowling the shallows or cruising around submerged structures, providing an exciting and rewarding fishing experience in the waters surrounding Dauphin Island.

What other species are popular in Dauphin Island?

Aside from targeting jack crevalle, anglers visiting Dauphin Island have a wide variety of other species to pursue, offering a diverse and exciting fishing experience. One notable species is the speckled trout, also known as spotted seatrout, which inhabit the estuaries, bays, and flats around the island. These elusive and highly sought-after game fish are known for their cunning nature and challenging fight, making them a favorite among anglers looking for a rewarding challenge. Speckled trout can be caught using a variety of techniques, including live bait such as shrimp or mullet, as well as artificial lures like soft plastics or topwater plugs.

Redfish, also known as red drum, are another popular target species around Dauphin Island. These powerful and tenacious fish are revered for their hard-fighting nature and can be found in shallow coastal waters, particularly around marshy areas, oyster beds, and tidal flats. Redfish can be caught using a variety of techniques, including sight casting with artificial lures or bait, as well as bottom fishing with cut bait or live bait such as crab or mullet. Their striking copper-colored scales and distinctive black spots make them a prized catch for anglers exploring the rich fishing grounds of Dauphin Island.

For anglers seeking larger quarry, Dauphin Island also offers opportunities to target species such as king mackerel, cobia, and even sharks. These apex predators roam the deeper offshore waters around the island, often following seasonal migrations of baitfish or cruising along underwater structures such as reefs and wrecks. Anglers targeting these larger species typically use heavy tackle and live bait or large artificial lures to entice strikes from these formidable game fish. With such a wide variety of species to target, anglers visiting Dauphin Island can enjoy a diverse and rewarding fishing experience in the rich waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

    We had a great time fishing with Bill and Nikki. Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate with us. Very windy and choppy in the Gulf that forced us to stay in the inside bay.
