Orange Beach Fishing
Orange Beach is one of the most popular vacation destinations on the Gulf Coast. Over 15,000 nearshore artificial reef structures cover more than 1,000 square miles of seafloor. Highly productive deep-sea waters and an expansive inshore fishery make Orange Beach fishing charters an angler's paradise. Whether you're on family vacation looking for a fun day on the water, or you're a hardcore angler who'd rather be on the water than the beach, Orange Beach fishing charters have it all. Hot summers and moderate winters mean something is always biting.
Orange Beach Inshore Fishing
For the inshore angler, Orange Beach fishing charters are unbeatable. The bite is on year-round, from the artificial reef structures in Perdido Bay to the mudflats and bayou backwaters. With Bon Secour Bay to the west and Pensacola Bay to the east, this interconnected waterway has some of the best fishing in the gulf. Orange Beach has fishing charters for all ages and all experience levels. Inshore trips often produce very well in the winter, sometimes better than the summer. The Black Drum migration begins in February with the potential of 40-50 pounders. When the waters cool down, the inshore fish generally tend to move into shallower waters. Sight fishing for bull Redfish can be done in the cooler months, while deeper water bay fishing works well in the summer. Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Flounder, and other inshore species can be caught throughout the year.

Starting in March, Cobia is a popular species to target as they stop by on their migration. Starting in May the deep sea season begins, with trips heading 40-160 miles offshore. May brings trolling bluewater for Wahoo and Mackerel, while the bottom fishing also stays hot for Grouper. June brings Red Snapper season, the crown jewel of Orange Beach deep sea fishing. Offshore hits peak season in the summer, with extended day trips getting on Yellowfin and Bluefin Tuna, Sailfish, and Marlin.
