Default Orange Beach This Weekend

I have a group headed out of Orange Beach this weekend. Thinking about trying the rigs. I know the tuna fishing is hit or miss there due to brown water, but is there any hope? Or are we just wasting time? Has anyone been out there lately? I'm just trying to get a game plan together so any insight is appreciated. Thanks.

I was about to post the same question. I have some people that want to catch tuna, even if it is just blackfin. So, if you go, please post a report.

I just hate to go all the way out there for nothing when we could be trolling or something else.

Caught a small blackfin on a cedar plug in the nastiest mud water I'd ever seen around Horn a couple of weeks ago. Two passes. One small fry.

chlorophyl imagery has been real spotty lately due to cloud cover, but what images there are still show very mucky water around all the rigs out past Horn Mt. In my experience mucky water at the rigs means few if any tuna active or feeding. If it was me i would not run to the rigs knowing the water quality is what it is. It has been this way for the past month. the last three runs I've made I've opted to stay between the nipple and the spur and I've had good trips, tuna, dolphin and wahoo. Last Saturday we kept seeing whales and I do mean plural around the 131 hole so that has to be a good sign, good numbers of flying fish as well. If I were going there is no doubt that is where I would be heading!

Good luck

I was out there a few weeks ago. The water looked like crap. We saw one YFT and that was it. I would think it would be a waste of time, money, gas, beer, the weekend to go when the water sucks. We brushed off the advice and went anyways in bad water and it was worthless.

We may try 131 hole. Theres too much ocean to not catch any fish! I'll be sure to post a report Monday. Hopefully it will be one with some fish in it.
