Vertical jigging is another successful technique for targeting red snapper in Orange Beach, particularly effective when fishing over deeper offshore structures or ledges where these fish are known to lurk. Anglers utilize heavy metal jigs adorned with colorful skirts or shiny finishes to mimic the movement of prey, jigging them up and down through the water column to attract the attention of hungry red snapper.

    Our group of 12 went fishning with Captain Dale and crew in Orange Beach, Alabama on 11/24/23 the day after Thanksgiving and we had such a wonderful time. We didn't know if our luck at that time of year would be good but Captain Dale's extensive experience and knowledge got us right where we needed to be and OMG we didn't stop catching fish. It was the highlight of our Gulf Shores vacation. And we highly recommend booking Captian Dale through Captain Experiences whose process is easy, convenient, and no hassle booking .

    A group of 6 went with Zach into the Gulf. We had a great time catching snapper. There was some weather that morning and Zach was very proactive in arranging a slight departure delay to let the weather pass. Zach was dedicated to keeping us on fish. Access to the boat and dock was super easy. I would go back!

    We Loved Captain Shawn! He was patient, helpful and very engaging. If the fish weren’t biting in one spot he’d move to another. We caught a variety of species and was knowledgeable about every one we caught . He realized how excited I was to see the dolphins so he got them to jump in our waves from the boat. Every time we saw them he was sure to try to get them to interact with us. His boat was very nice and clean, you could tell he loved his boat. IT WAS AWESOME! We plan on a second trip with him to do offshore fishing next. We enjoyed his inshore trip and hospitality! HIGHLY RECOMMEND! One more thing… although we didn’t bring our 10 year old son I definitely would not hesitate to take him out on a Captain Shawn’s boat! He’s a family man, I could tell he would do great with younger passengers as well.

    Shannon P. with Shawn S. of Bon Secour, Alabama
