Kicking Off the Summer on the Coast
June is the traditional kick off month for the start of summer. Kids are out of school and looking for something to do. Nothing is better than exposing them to the wholesome sport of fishing. By doing the right thing for your kids, you can get an awesome benefit as well.
...During the federal season, offshore captains, like Capt. Jim Daniels of the Ocean Ox Charters, will be trying to put their parties on quality fishing for red snapper. Captain Daniels already has his first trip in June planned out.
“We have a 12-hour trip planned to head out 50 to 60 miles and troll for wahoo around weedlines,” he explained. “We will troll skirted ballyhoo for the wahoo. I like a red and black skirt combo, but use other combos as well. If we can’t find weedlines, we will search out the ‘breakwater’ where the blue and green waters meet. There, we often encounter mahi-mahi (dolphin) wahoo and the occasional tuna.”

"I recently returned from a tasty, fun, and adventurous four days on the Alabama Beaches, also known as Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. My favorite activity, by far, was deep sea fishing with Captain Jimmy. This was my very first time deep sea fishing (actually first time fishing since I was a child) so I was a little worried that I would not pick it up in time to enjoy the experience. My worries immediately subsided when Capt. Jimmy and his crew gave our group of all ladies a warm, sincere welcome. They could have easily written off this female, newbie charter as an easy trip and put little effort into it. But from the moment we arrived, they made sure we were comfortable, informed and excited about the fishing trip..."
Historically Short Federal Red Snapper Season Announced
Click the link below to read about local WKRG News 5 Reporter Hayley Minogue interviewing Captain Jimmy about the short Red Snapper Season announced for 2017.
In Alabama, state waters will open Friday, May 26 and remain open until July 31. In Florida, the state waters will open one day later than Alabama and will remain open for 78 days. In Mississippi, recreational anglers will be allowed to harvest from May 26th through September 4th. In Texas, the Red Snapper season in state waters is year round.
“With only three days we could have bad weather and make it unsafe,” Daniels added. “That’s the biggest part… that there will be people that no matter how rough it is because they only have three days, they’re gonna try to go. So I worry about the safety aspect of it.”
