trip description for Red Snapper Round Up in Gulf Shores

6 hour/Half day trips are a favorite during the Red Snapper season. We go get a limit of Red Snapper and chase some other fish and have a lot of fun on the water. After a half day working on fish most crews are worn out and ready to relax on the beach and have a cold drink. This is the perfect boat and trip for both beginners and seasoned fishermen wanting to have fun and plenty fish to eat on vacation. Make this a part of your vacation experience, we catch fish!!! On 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! Red Snapper is available on this trip. 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 along with an average size to complete the limit, 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. This vessel 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!

    We had a great time on our first family fishing trip. We brought enthusiasm, and very little experience. John was a great teacher for all of us, and took us to several good spots in Lake Passage. We caught shark, black grouper and enough snapper to feast on for days. The fine folks at Hurricane Hole cooked it up for us and it was amazing!! We would definitely book another trip with John!!

    Obviously we fought the gulf storm the good Lord gave us a favorable morning. We didn’t catch the fish I had hoped for and didn’t get to go out into the Gulf. Having said that Levi worked real hard with us to catch fish on the inlet. My boys caught some bonnet sharks which was exciting and I caught a dinner plate size sting ray. I would recommend Levi for any trip on the inlet. Thank you. We are talking about June 1 st next year for a gulf trip for snapper and grouper
