Overnight Fishing trips 

Most of the overnight charters that we run are combination bottom fishing / offshore trips. A typical overnighter usually leaves the dock at Orange Beach Marina about 6 am. We will start the day in some cases doing some live bait fishing but we always make every attempt to catch all the live bait that we need before departing in the morning.  However, it is always best to try and catch some fresh live bait just off the beach in about 20 feet of water.  When looking at the 350 gallons live you will see Pinfish, Croakers, Pig Fish and Menhaden the bait that is usually caught in the gulf the morning of the trip will be Pilchards ( aka Greenies or Herring, Threadfin, Cigar Minnows, and Atlantic Bumper fish ( aka Crazy fish). The live bait will be the most important key to most any trip so the time spent here will be very well served.


 After we finish live bait fishing we will usually put out some high speed trolling lures for Wahoo, King Mackerel and other fish that can be caught trolling while on the way to the fishing grounds At this point, we will usually be working on whatever type breakfast that you may like to bring along or may be provided for you if you choose. From there, it is a flurry of activity rigging tackle, cutting bait, and giving everything a thorough inspection before the action commences. After a good ride offshore, we will start on our bottom fishing for Red Snapper, Grouper, Scamps, Vermillion Snapper and Triggerfish depending on the time of year that you go fishing and what is in season. This type of fishing will be done on one of the thousands of private reefs or on some natural bottom that it has taken years to acquire. Usually, everyone is fishing at once, and this creates a lot of fun and excitement in competing with your buddies and having a good time. While all this is going on it is commonplace to have your lunch smoking away on the grill.   At the conclusion of the bottom fishing, we will usually work our way further offshore to give everyone time to eat lunch and catch their breath to fish around some the many oil rigs or deeper rock and chase the Amberjacks. From here we will continue even further offshore to give the Tuna, Wahoo or Dolphins a shot late the first day. undefinedundefined

On the way offshore we will start cooking supper and with our focus shifting to the offshore fishing for Yellow-fin Tuna, Black-Fin Tuna, Dolphin, Wahoo and the occasional Marlin. Once the offshore fishing has begun, we will employ a number of successful tactics and we will have three very distinct times but different times for catching fish. First, is the evening bite which may be done a number of ways but Trolling or Kite fishing with live bait have proven to be the best effort for this time frame. After the sun goes down and everyone is enjoying their dinners we may try to deep jig some Blackfin Tunas or possibly try to chum up a yellowfin right under the boat if the conditions will allow. After a hot shower and a good nights sleep, you will be awakened to the sound of the engines cranking or the smell of freshly brewed coffee. Early the second morning before the sun comes up we usually try some more deep jigging and chunking for the Yellowfin's until right at the crack of Daylight and we may either go back to the Kite or troll methods. As the sun comes up it is a very exciting time to be on the deck with the anticipation of the big bite at any moment.

If the bite is productive, we will certainly stick with it until the bite slows or it is time to head back in. This will always be our longest ride of the trip but after a very exciting trip and all the fun, this is when the card games, Satellite TV or the Stereo will come in useful.  However, most people will sleep all the way to the dock. Most trips return to the dock after lunch anywhere from 12 -4 pm depending on the length of the ride. Some of the trips offshore will carry you to points well offshore some as far as 75 to 150 miles from the port. No two trips are ever the same and there is always some fun and exciting to do on a trip like this that will set it apart from others. Nowhere else will you find a camping trip, fishing trip and picnic like this!
