We departed Orange Beach Marina at 6 AM into rather choppy seas and headed south to the bottom fishing grounds. Mr. Hilderbrand and I had discussed the weather for several days leading up to this trip but no one onboard was sick and everyone catching all of the fish.
We caught Vermillion snapper, white snapper, some big triggerfish we then rode further on offshore. Once we got located, the big Amberjacks started to bite and I must admit I had kinda forgot how big and mean the Amberjacks are in the winter. We had a limit of big amberjack’s with some of the 50-75 pound class
Once everyone had the opportunity to battle an Amberjack it was time to start heading in so we pointed the boat toward the beautiful Alabama Gulf Coast and made the ride back toward Perdido pass.
