Went fishing on Thursday, March 16, 2017

Me and my 19 & 21 year old sons had a great afternoon with Captain Clay. It was a very cool afternoon but pretty sunny. We are not experienced fisherman at all (once per year when we come to the gulf coast). Capt Clay did a nice job explaining the tackle, the fish we would be targeting, how they bite, how to hook them and how to reel them in.  He was very patient working with us as we got the hang of the process and his friendly, easygoing personality made us feel very comfortable. He brought us to some great spots and we caught 13 Sheepshead and one Pampano. We all got to catch a few to enjoy the experience. What impressed me the most was Capt Clays attitude about fish stock conservation. He wanted us to catch all we wanted to eat, but not overfish the stock to put in danger future populations.

Overall, we had a great experience, caught the fish that we wanted, and learned a few things along the way. We would definitely be booking with Captain Clay again on our next visit.

We had an untimely cold snap with rain and wind but Capt. Clay did everything he could to put us on fish. We were more successful than we should have been given the circumstances. Clay worked hard, was extremely knowledgeable, easy to converse with, and good with my kids. I will definitely book with him again.

Captain Clay was awesome! We drove four hours just to go fishing and was not disappointed! Clay taught us everything to the point I have confidence with fishing now! The fish weren’t biting so he took us to spots that we got to catch and bring home fish! I totally recommend him and we are already looking to come back soon! Thank you Clay for everything!

I thoroughly enjoyed the half-day fishing trip with Clay Blankenship. We started early morning to be on the water before other boaters, and successfully targeted spotted trout with great hook-ups. All trout significantly exceeded size limits. Clay knew exactly where to find the trout, and how to fish for them. We later targeted waters for sheepshead, and met with some success despite challenging tides and currents. He is an enjoyable person and well informed through his years of experience. The name of his company, “Angler Management,” truly reflects Clay’s ability to work well with people, manage expectations, flexibility in accommodating client desires, provide great instruction, network with other guides to search area waters for active fishing holes, and work well with his clients so that they catch fish! I am now planning my next trip with Clay. I highly recommend him for a charter fishing outing in the waters of Orange Beach/Gulf Shores, AL.

Captain Clay was the best. My family and I had a great time with him. It was really a blast watching my wife and daughter fighting those big red fish. The captain put us on some great fish.  Next time we make it through there we will go with him again.
