FLOATING SUNGLASSES AND BEHIND THE SCENES OF A SOUTHERN DEEP SEA FISHING TRIP
Being from Georgia we are spoiled and get to use our floating sunglasses with some great river fishing even right inside Atlanta, the largest city in the state. The Chattahoochee, or the "Hooch" as it is affectionately called by the locals, has great trout fishing. But we'll cover that some other time.
Right now, I want to share with you a few of our favorites from a recent trip to the Gulf Shores. It started with a friend who launched a hydroponic farm there several years ago and makes some of the best lettuce this side of the Atlantic. I'm not kidding, it's amazing and it will change the way you think about salad.
On our first visit we caught more than 150 pounds of Red Snapper. This time, they weren't in season so the hunt began with thinking through which fish to go for. Our intention was to avoid the trigger fish and cat fish and go straight for the groupers and do some sport fishing with the Amber Jacks (they put up a fight!).
GULF SHORES OVERVIEW
Our trip began in Atlanta where we trekked to Foley, Alabama to stay with our bud who lives (and farms) in the area. We hopped in the car to the Gulf Shores where some of the best deep sea fishing in Alabama can be found. Captain Mike showed us the ropes.
The Gulf Shores is a city home to the popular music festival Hangout Fest and the famous (or infamous?) bar that is said to split the Florida / Alabama line. I told a friend that one time and they asked "well then who do they pay taxes to?". A quick google search would indicate Florida but danget now I'm curious. We have a retailer in the area Paris Ace Hardware that carries our line of floating sunglasses so don't forget to pop in and say hello for us!
