A fishing charter in Pensacola/Gulf Breeze, FL, is the perfect way to experience the Gulf Coast's rich fishing opportunities. On this trip, you'll head out to chase a wide range of inshore and nearshore species on either fly tackle or ultra-light tackle, both of which are a blast for anglers of all levels. Captain Richard is an expert when it comes to fish here off the coast of Pensacola/Gulf Breeze, and he'll be able to show you some great spots to catch all kinds of fish. You'll be targeting a range of species, including Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Tarpon, each of which requires its own unique approach. Some of these fish rarely break 10 pounds, while Tarpon can grow to over 100! Given this huge range, don't be surprised if you switch tackle and rigging several times throughout your trip, as you pursue different species. We are a Do No Harm charter! All fish will be released. As Fly Fishing International Certified Casting Instructor, Richard can help tune up your cast or get you out there as a first timer. If you're using fly tackle, you'll likely be using 7 to 10-weight rods with saltwater reels designed specifically for the job. Equipment is provided, you will be using top of the line Thomas and Thomas fly rods with Tibor and Abel fly reels. You'll also use a range of flies, including surface poppers, streamers, and other kinds of imitators, all of which can entice different fish species. If you're using light tackle, you'll be using spinning rods and reels loaded with braided line. You'll also need a range of lures, including jigs, spoons, and soft plastics. Captain Richard will point you in the right direction, so you can be confident you're throwing the perfect tackle for the job! Fishing here in Pensacola/Gulf Breeze is a great way to enjoy Florida's beautiful coast and hook up some fantastic species! The fish are feeding—what are you waiting for? Read More

What is ladyfish fishing in Orange Beach all about?

In Orange Beach, Alabama, anglers often encounter ladyfish, a popular gamefish known for its spirited fight and acrobatic leaps when hooked. Ladyfish, also referred to as "poor man's tarpon" due to their resemblance to the larger and more prized tarpon species, inhabit the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico near Orange Beach. These fish are commonly found in shallow waters, along beaches, inlets, and nearshore areas, making them accessible targets for anglers of all skill levels.

Ladyfish are voracious predators, known for their willingness to strike at a wide variety of artificial lures and live bait. Anglers in Orange Beach often target ladyfish using light tackle and casting techniques, such as topwater plugs, spoons, and small jigs. The explosive strikes and high-flying leaps of ladyfish make them a thrilling catch for anglers seeking an exciting fishing experience along the Gulf Coast.

While ladyfish are not typically sought after for their table fare, they provide anglers with plenty of excitement and action on the water. With their aggressive feeding behavior and aerobatic displays, ladyfish offer anglers in Orange Beach an entertaining challenge and an opportunity to hone their skills in pursuing these dynamic and energetic fish. Whether casting lines from shore, piers, or boats, encountering ladyfish adds an element of excitement to any fishing trip along the vibrant coastline of Orange Beach.

What are the most popular months to fish for ladyfish in Orange Beach?

In Orange Beach, Alabama, ladyfish can be found in the coastal waters year-round, offering anglers ample opportunities to target these spirited gamefish. However, the abundance and activity of ladyfish can vary depending on the season. Typically, ladyfish are more prevalent during the warmer months, from late spring through early fall, when water temperatures are higher and baitfish populations increase along the Gulf Coast.

During the spring and summer months, ladyfish are often more active and widespread along the beaches, inlets, and nearshore waters of Orange Beach. This time of year coincides with the peak spawning season for many baitfish species, attracting ladyfish in search of abundant food sources. Anglers can expect to encounter larger numbers of ladyfish during these months, making it an ideal time to target them using a variety of fishing techniques.

While ladyfish may be less abundant during the cooler months of fall and winter, they can still be found in Orange Beach waters. Anglers may need to adjust their tactics and target areas with warmer water temperatures or concentrate on deeper channels and tidal creeks where ladyfish seek shelter from colder temperatures. With proper knowledge of seasonal patterns and habitat preferences, anglers in Orange Beach can enjoy pursuing ladyfish year-round along the Gulf Coast.

What techniques are popular for catching ladyfish in Orange Beach?

Ladyfish fishing in Orange Beach, Alabama, requires anglers to employ a variety of techniques to successfully target these energetic and acrobatic fish. One effective method for catching ladyfish is using light tackle and casting techniques, such as topwater plugs, spoons, and small jigs. Anglers often cast their lures into areas with active baitfish schools, nearshore waters, or along beaches where ladyfish are known to congregate.

Another productive technique for ladyfish fishing in Orange Beach is drift fishing or trolling, particularly in areas with deeper channels or along the edges of tidal creeks and inlets. Anglers can use live bait such as shrimp, mullet, or small baitfish rigged on lightweight rigs to entice strikes from ladyfish. Drifting or trolling allows anglers to cover a larger area and explore different depths, increasing their chances of encountering feeding ladyfish.

Additionally, anglers targeting ladyfish in Orange Beach may use chumming techniques to attract fish to their location. Chum, consisting of crushed or chopped baitfish or other attractants, is dispersed into the water to create a scent trail that draws ladyfish closer to the boat or fishing spot. By combining effective fishing techniques with a thorough understanding of ladyfish behavior, anglers in Orange Beach can increase their chances of landing these spirited and dynamic fish for an exhilarating fishing experience along the Gulf Coast.

What other species are popular in Orange Beach?

Aside from ladyfish, Orange Beach, Alabama, offers anglers a diverse range of other species to target for an exciting fishing experience. One popular catch among fishermen is the Gulf Red Snapper, known for its vibrant coloration and delicious flavor. These fish inhabit the reefs and wrecks off the coast of Orange Beach, providing anglers with thrilling battles and ample rewards. With regulations in place to ensure sustainable fishing practices, catching Gulf Red Snapper remains a cherished tradition for fishermen in the region.

Another sought-after species in Orange Beach is the Gulf Amberjack, prized for its impressive size and powerful fighting ability. These formidable fish inhabit deeper waters and are revered by anglers for their aggressive feeding behavior, making them a challenging yet rewarding catch. Anglers often employ heavy tackle and specialized techniques to reel in these prized game fish, adding an extra element of excitement to their fishing adventures.

    We had a great experience with Captain Danny today! There were three dads and three 8 year olds on the boat and he was such a great guide and teacher with the little ones. We caught some fish right away at the first stop and then spotted a number of dolphins on the bay. We all had a great time!

    Had a great time out fishing with Captain Don today! Group of 5 adults and we all caught several fish. We all felt safe and everything was well maintained. The views of course were amazing! Will definitely use him again next time we are in Gulf Shores area.

    Captain Danny was awesome! He was so good with my boys (13, 12, & 6) and us- I would highly recommend booking with this group! Capt Danny was so friendly and experienced, he was able to maneuver us around to catch some even when it was super cold. We really enjoyed it! They were flexible with us on scheduling too. If you're thinking of doing a beginner fishing trip- go this route & request Captain Danny!
