And fishing beats work any day.

They are catching them all along the coast. From Pt. St  Joe to the Mississippi sound averaging 50-150 lbs. live bait is obviously the best ... Threadfins , alewives or small blue crabs. If you don't have the luxury of live bait they have been tearing them up on knife jigs as well. You may see them in pairs which will usually be your larger fish however I've heard reports of schools over 200 near Pensacola pass.

Captain Paul RedmanKeep your eyes open while bottom fishing for the next few weeks the cobia are showing their face on a lot of bottom structure . It's not uncommon for some to turn around and head east after the spring migration , most do continue west for a long way as far as Africa and some stay as resident fish.Let's not forget that you can harvest triggerfish at the same time your catching the elusive rarely seen alive ...RED SNAPPER this weekend. Remember ... State waters 14" to the fork of the tail. 

Tight lines 
Captain Paul RedmanDon't forget every Friday Saturday and Sunday in July the elusive almost to the brink of extinction RED SNAPPER season opens up. Alabama's passed legislature to have state waters to go out to nine miles. However the federal government is not recognizing it. So it's 3 miles if your scared and 9 if you are sick and tired of the federal government mismanaging OUR FISHERY. 
HOPE TO SEE YOU ALL 8.9 miles offshore.

Go Fish the Gulf
FISH DEEPER !!!!!!! Don't get discouraged if you think you've lost your magic touch when its comes to targeting your favorite inshore species . They're still there they are just deeper in the cooler water . ITS HOT and fish are a lot like us when it comes to temperature .... it affects everything they do from spawning.. to location... to eating habits as well as migration . Target some of your deeper water docks ... How do I know if the docks are deeper you ask ??? A dead give away is the size vessels moored in the slips at the dock .. particularly sail boats which have a deep draft do to the size of the keel under the vessel larger motor yachts as well . Try your channels to inlets also they will hold fish as well !!!!! Tight lines Captain Paul Redman

Took the Pier Royalty tournament winner Daniel Mcgeehee and his family out today as part of his tournament winnings caught several kings and some virtually extinct Red Snapper. Trolled mainly dusters with cigar minnows the king bite is great and getting better. We also were cane poling red snapper 5 ft under the boat with the gulf state pier in site. Great trip for sure. Special thanks to Shanahan Charters for making it happen.

There's not a whole lot of time left before the kids are all back in school but unless you've been locked in a closed building with no windows you'd know the gulf of Mexico is and has been at its finest the past few days . Its as calm as it can be . There's plenty to catch ....off shore Amberjack, Grouper and Trigger, inshore/near shore king mackerel, Spanish and tarpon. The bull reds are killing it in the afternoon and have remained strong for the past month ...they'll will only get better from here on out . Get out there and smash something !!!!

We've had a few questions on the tarpon laws for the state of Alabama so I thought we'd post the state rules . So hear ya go !!! These fish are horrible table fare and not worth killing for no reason at all you can take measurements and have almost an exact replica made for your memories . So take that in consideration when your taking photos. Release them to fight again !!! No person may have in possession a tarpon taken from Alabama waters smaller than sixty (60”) inches in total length. No person shall kill, possess, or harvest from the public waters of this state any fish of the species megalops atlantica, commonly known as tarpon, unless such person has purchased a tarpon tag. Cost per tag..........................................................................................................................$51.00 (TAG SHALL BE GOOD FOR ONE YEAR FROM DATE OF PURCHASE) THIS TAG SHALL BE SECURELY ATTACHED THROUGH THE LOWER JAW OF THE FISH IMMEDIATELY UPON THE KILL OR HARVEST OF THE TARPON. The Marine Resources Division requests that said person, within five (5) days after the landing of the fish, complete and submit the accompanying questionnaire for that tag to the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Marine Resources Division. This information will be used by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Marine Resources Division in conducting tarpon research. Any person, including a taxidermist, who possesses a tarpon which does not have a tag securely attached through the lower jaw of the fish may be subject to penalties as prescribed in Code of Alabama 1975, § 9-11-94.1. Provided, however, a taxidermist may remove the tag during the process of mounting a tarpon. The tag shall remain with the fish during any subsequent storage or shipment. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, age gender, national origin, or disability in its hiring practices nor in admission to, access to, or operations of its programs, services, or activities.

The tarpon bite is still on... lots of reports from local captains with several hook ups in a day. Patience is the key... these fish are traveling so its a sit and wait game from the pier or if your in a boat obviously you can sight fish for them . Also plenty of Spanish mackerel and kings still being caught near the passes and buoys. Redfish continue to make an afternoon to late evening run mostly all over the slot limit remember you can only have one over the slot limit in Alabama .
