FINS AND FAMILY FISHING OFFSHORE FISHING CHARTERS - FEDERAL and STATE

Fins and Family Fishing's private offshore or deep sea fishing charters in Federal waters are a great choice for the experienced angler or family with high school aged kids or older. Federal trips focus on waters outside of nine nautical miles and include both trolling and bottom fishing charters. Federal trips offer the greatest opportunity to catch legal sized keeper fish as well as the largest fish. State of Alabama waters offshore fishing charters are great for individuals and families who want fun and exciting day of fishing offshore in the Gulf of Mexico without going too far offshore. Our family friendly State Offshore Fishing Charters feature a combination of trolling and bottom fishing within nine nautical miles of the beach. Both state and federal offshore fishing charters feature trolling and bottom fishing options and focus on fishing submerged reefs, wrecks, natural bottom, and natural gas platforms.

 

SPRING OFFSHORE FISHING

 

For our spring visitors the 2019 Triggerfish season offshore begins March 1st and is expected to extend until the end of May. Triggerfish are hard fighting, fun to catch, and great to eat. They are limited to harvest to one per person and must be at least 15 inches long to keep in both state and federal waters. Triggerfish are more numerous in Federal waters and grow to larger sizes there as well. In Federal waters we often catch other species as we fish for Trigger such as Red Snapper (closed for harvest), Vermillion Snapper (legal and tasty), Amberjack (legal after April 1), and a few sharks. State waters in the spring  also yield a few additional species such as the awesome Snapper (closed for harvest) and Redfish (legal within 3 miles).  Instead we suggest CPR, catch, photograph, and carefully release. April 1st begins Federal Amberjack season and it is slated to extend until May 31. Amberjack are fierce fighters and are also a great fresh fish to grill. Amberjack are limited to one per person and 34 inches to the fork begin their legal harvest size. Amberjack are scheduled to return in season August - October if stock assessments remain high enough. Amberjack are not frequently caught of legal size in state of Alabama waters but we do on occasion. 

 

SUMMER OFFSHORE FISHING

 

Summer marks the beginning of our best fishing season of the year. It also ushers in the season for the most popular fish along the northern Gulf of Mexico. Both state and federal Red Snapper seasons open for harvest on June 1. The Sate of Alabama 2019 Red Snapper season is only open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, from June 1, through July 28th. Federal Red Snapper Season is open seven days a week from June 1st until August 2nd. While most of our short offshore fishing charters focus primarily on Red Snapper, we do frequently catch other amazing offshore fish on occasion such as Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Triggerfish, Vermillion Snapper, Grouper, Cobia, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Bonita, Remora, and an occasional shark! For our federal offshore anglers who book an eight or ten hour offshore trip species such as Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and the occasional billfish are all possibilities.

FALL OFFSHORE FISHING

 

Fall fishing offshore in both state and federal waters is traditionally an extension of the red hot bite from summer. And while some species like the Red Snapper are no longer available for harvest, we still catch lots of fish and have some good harvest options. Vermillion Snapper, Amberjack (closes Oct 1), Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel are all available and open for harvest and we will still catch others to appreciate, photography, and release. For our offshore guests who enjoy a longer offshore experience, our eight and ten hour trips in the fall can include Mahi-Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, and even a billfish.

WINTER OFFSHORE FISHING

 

Winter offshore fishing charters can be red hot! Catch and release species such as Red Snapper, Amberjack, and Triggerfish come closer to shore in the winter making them easier to catch and accessible for both federal and state offshore charters. Fish that we can keep in the winter such as Vermillion Snapper also venture closer to shore and can often be caught in both state and federal waters. Grouper always prefer cooler deeper waters but they do come closer to the shore in the winter than any other time of year. We do not typically troll in the winter instead we focus more on bottom fishing, jigging spoons, chunking, chumming, and flat lining with baits such as squid and cigar minnows. Winter offshore fishing charters generally offer the most fishing time of any season due to shorter rides to the fish in the winter.
