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!

Be prepared for some rough water. Summertime storms can pop up quickly. Expect to get wet. Pay attention to directions from the captain and the fish are a lot stronger than you might think.

First would be book Capt Brad, Nauti Fish Co. I would recommend checking what fish are in season. I also would recommend looking into state waters vs federal waters. I messed up and looked at seasons wrong or something i also was totally ignorant to all the regulations on state waters and federal waters. Brad thoroughly explained all this but i wish i had known all this before planning a vacation. I most likely would have came a week later or maybe even 6 weeks later.
Great time with Captain Rick
