Deep Sea Fishing in Fort Morgan

Providing direct access to the vast and plentiful Gulf of Mexico, the deep sea fishing Fort Morgan, Alabama isn’t for the faint of heart. If you’re willing to take the plunge, however, you’ll be rewarded in kind with some of the world’s most sought-after big game fish!
 

What to Expect?

Fort Morgan’s most productive deep sea fishing grounds lie miles from  shore. If you’re a less experienced angler, most charter captains will take you to the deepwater wrecks and reefs that start appearing around 20 miles from shore. Here, you’ll troll for King Mackerel, as well as targeting tasty Grouper and Snapper species, including Red Snapper. This fish is subject to strict regulations, so make sure you check out the open season dates to avoid disappointment!
 
Once you reach waters 60 miles out onto the Gulf, you’ll start to encounter the real beasts of the deep. Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna dominate these waters, and provide serious rod-bending action. Captains recommend opting for an overnight trip if you want to target these species – this allows for plenty of time to reach the hotspots, and is also when the Tuna really come out to play. 
 
If you’re a Billfish fanatic, you’ll be thrilled to discover that a variety of Marlin can be found off the coast of Fort Morgan. Prepare to travel at least 100 miles out to battle and conquer one of these hard-fighters. It’s a long journey, but the payoff makes it seriously worth it!
 

How to Prepare

Basically, the only preparation you’ll need to do before your trip is brush up on your old fish tales for the journey out! Your captain will make sure you’re equipped with all the fishing gear you need, and your license will be covered, too. If you’re sensitive to water conditions, bring along some seasickness medication. That way, when you begin your adventure from Fort Morgan, you’ll be fighting fit and ready to battle the beasts of the deep!

"Hookmasters Are The Masters!"

fished with Hookmaster Charters on October 22, 2018

Took a trip with Captain Mac to fish in the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo. Caught enough fish to be entered in the tournament and some extras. Captain Mac was conscientious to the weather, waves and fish activity to allow us to have a great time! Would do this trip again!
