Would anybody be willing to give me a tile fish number, a general area where to start looking south of Orange Beach? Ive never attempted it but I'd love to try.

PM me if you are willing.

Here is what I was told and I have been pretty successful at finding them. For golden tilefish, find 800+ feet of water and look for the blue fuzz near the bottom. We did a side by side test last time out and live or frozen cigar minnows out produced squid or bonita chunks.

Good thread. Hope to get out and figure out this tilefish thing. They are delicious!

Be aware that you need to limit your consumption because they have a high mercury content. We usually just eat one meal a month of them.

just get a penn senator, new or used, order a fishwinch 2.0 for about $300 and you're just as good as a tanacom.
