Orange Beach / Gulf Shores Intimidator deep sea fishing charter boat report

The deep sea fishing has been really good in gulf shores this year. We have had a good variety of things to catch on the 6 hour charters such as vermillion snapper, white snapper, red snapper and triggerfish. But two of my personal favorite fish to catch are the king mackerel and black snapper.

The king mackerel were a little late showing up this year as I would imagine it had a lot to do with the significant amounts of rain that we've battled this spring. Kings are big fish that have to be in excess of 24" to keep and can grow upwards of 50 pounds. We catch these fish while trolling on the way out to the fishing grounds but, one of the funniest ways has to be on the drift lines… which are lines that have a small wire leader and are cast out on the surface while you are bottom fishing. As they drift down they will draw the attention of the mackerel and hopefully a bite. Once hooked these fish will pull a lot of line and make good strong drag screaming runs.

We have some openings left for July so if you're thinking about a trip bring your family now and let them share the experience with you while the seas are calm and the fish are biting!

Orange Beach / Gulf Shores Intimidator deep sea fishing charter boat report

Over the past couple of weeks stationing on the Intimidator has been very good. Red snapper season 2013 has been good and we look forward to the last couple of weeks of the season which will be on Friday, June 28.

Gag grouper will open July 1 and will make for lots of fun on the full day trips as we get to participate in a sure enough grouper fishery. Available fish to be caught on a full-day charter are gag grouper, scamp, red grouper, yellow edge grouper and tilefish. You can also keep Vermillion snapper, white snapper and king mackerel.

In August, amberjack will re-open a long with the afore mentioned species above and you will get to do some of the most premier fishing that we have to offer.

July through early December is absolutely my most favorite time of year to fish offshore as the yellowfin and blackfin tuna like a strong showing. This is also a great time of year to catch a dolphin or a marlin as well. During the late summer fall to the early winter time we will average about two overnight trips a week. If you have ever considered a overnight trip this is your opportunity to have a memorable action-packed offshore adventure.

I have been updating almost daily our Facebook page with 20 to 30 photographs per trip as opposed to a full-blown written fishing report. It seems people enjoy the photographs and I struggle for words at different times.

A couple of times a week I also updated my blog with pertinent fishing information and random fishing reports, as the weather will allow. Please be sure to follow along, and please offer me some feedback on the photographs versus fishing reports or any other suggestions that you may have.

Orange Beach / Gulf Shores Intimidator deep sea fishing charter boat report

Fishing over the last month has been really good from big yellowfin tuna to small lure tickling mackerels.

Four hour trolling trips: We have not run any four hours this year due to the absence of any king or spanish mackerel to be caught, with any consistency. However, over the last week the mackerels have showed up and those boats staying near shore have done quite well.

Six-hour half day fishing trips: These trips have consistently been the most popular trip that we run for families looking for a good time. We have had some very good catches this year and fully expect that trend to continue with snapper season starting in just a few weeks.

On the full day fishing charters we have had good luck with some nice triggerfish, Vermillion snapper, and Amber jacks. These trips last week, have really allowed us to showcase our ability to produce high-quality trips for you.

Overnight deep sea fishing charters: As many of you may know, we have always ran a lot of overnight deep sea fishing charters. As proof of what we have done, please make sure to read our fishing reports, you should be quite amazed. From giant yellowfin tuna to some of the prettiest scamp fishing we have had in a long time, these trips continue to get better and better.

If you were looking for a new charter fishing vessel to help entertain your family or group of anglers please consider us as we have been around for over 20 years and will be glad to share our friendly and knowledgeable expertise with you. Make sure to follow us on twitter and Facebook as we take pictures and update daily.

Orange Beach / Gulf Shores Intimidator deep sea fishing charter boat report

Over the past month we have enjoyed some of the finest offshore overnight tuna fishing trips we have had in a long time.

The offshore deep sea fishing - started off really good with fish in close around the Ram Powell. Then they migrated on offshore with the recent cool weather that we have had. The blue water has been in really close too, and we have seen some scattered grass and some flying fish. It has truly been very good for yellowfin and blackfin tuna. We have caught a couple of wahoo as well as a few Dolphin and mahi-mahi.

Bottom deep sea fishing trips - we have ran a good many six hour charters this spring and have done very well with triggerfish, Vermillion snapper and white snapper. On the longer overnight trips we have done surprisingly well with big scamps and red groupers.

Nearshore trolling trips - nearshore trolling has not been very good this spring at all. I would render a guess that it is only due to all of the late-season cold fronts that have roared through and the fact that the water temperature has remained fairly low for this time of year. However, this will quickly improve as we have had a predominant Southeast wind flow over the last couple of weeks.

Orange Beach / Gulf Shores Intimidator deep sea fishing charter boat report

Over the past several weeks we have enjoyed a very successful Spring Break as many people have visited the Alabama Gulf Coast on vacation. We appreciate those of you who took the time to enjoy your fishing trip with us and hope that those of you considering an offshore fishing trip will give us a shot.

Four hour deep sea fishing trips - these trips are starting to become more and more productive every day as the water temperature and air warms up. As of this past Sunday the Spanish Mackerel have showed up and have become fairly consistent as we are Cobia fishing. This is a good time of year to book and economical trip and have the possibility of catching a big Cobia which has to be 33 inches overall length to keep.

Six hour deep sea fishing trips - as always these are our most popular trips throughout the course of the entire fishing year. Over the past several weeks we have had tremendous success with Vermilion Snapper, White Snapper and a few Triggerfish. However, being able to add a little bit of Spanish Mackerel trolling on top of the really good bottom fishing will make for an even more enjoyable trip this time of year.

Full day deep sea fishing trips - as always these trips are highly successful and you should expect to catch some big fish like Amberjack, Scamp, Red Grouper, Vermilion Snapper, Triggerfish and even possibly a big Wahoo or King Mackerel on a high-speed troller as we go in and out to the fishing grounds.

Overnight trips - are always the most productive trip that we offer and are just now beginning to get really good offshore. The Wahoo and Black Fin Tuna bite is very consistent and the Yellow Fin Tunas are starting to show up in good numbers. If you mix in some bottom fishing with some of the afore mentioned reef fish species you will quickly realize the level of success available to you on an Overnight Fishing Trip.

As always we are available for Charter most every day with the exception of a few sacred holidays. If you're considering a deep-sea fishing trip and don't know where to begin, give me a call, we book hundreds of fishing trips a year and we can take all of the uncertainties from your mind regarding booking a deep-sea fishing trip. Without you guys we don't get to go fishing.

What fish will we catch?

There are many species of fish to be caught year-round in the Gulf of Mexico. Springtime is highlighted by Cobia, king and Spanish mackerel, amberjack, triggerfish, and a variety of snapper species.

During the summer and into the fall, the focus seems to be more on the short family fishing trips or the longer multi-day fishing trips to the offshore rigs. Big game fishing for yellow fin and black fin tuna, mahi-mahi, wahoo, marlin and swordfish are always exciting trips and just plain cool to see.

Another year and another Awesome fishing trip under our belts!

In the late fall and winter, the emphasis is more on near shore trolling for redfish and mackerel on the short trips. During this time of the year, we have approaching cold fronts that can make the weather a bit fickle, but the action is at its peak. This is also prime time for tuna fishing.

Our Location

We are docked at the prestigious Orange Beach Marina. We are just a few minutes away from some of the best fishing in the entire Alabama Gulf Coast and the Gulf of Mexico.
