Background
I have loved fishing since I was a kid. I grew up fishing Freshwater around Georgia and did competitive bass fishing for a number of years. Saltwater fishing around Panama City every chance I could also added to my love of fishing. I've had my captain's license for over 4 years now, but I've now been fishing off Alabama's coast for 10 years. I enjoy watching and teaching others how to fish even more than fishing myself, especially kids.
Techniques
Offshore reef fishing for red snapper is the biggest thing in Orange Beach. We will drop down cut bait to the bottom and typically will get bites almost immediately. Trolling we will use a combination of deep diving planners with spoons behind them, a streamer or two outside on top and a deep diving plug being pulled behind a Z wing downrigger. Inshore we will fish live shrimp around jetties bridges and docks looking for redfish specked trout sheepshead and flounder.
