Fall is a Favorite Fishing Season for Many
Part of the What's Biting Series
As the calendar turned to fall, it also marked the end of the fishing season for many who enjoy being on the water. Families with school activities and hunters preparing their camps for the upcoming season have many boats on trailers as opposed to the
water. There may not be as many people fishing, but fewer boats certainly doesn't mean less enjoyment for those who are. "It is without a doubt my absolute favorite time of the year to fish," said Captain Chris Garner of High Cotton Charters in Orange Beach. "I love everything about fall fishing.
The fishing is outstanding; everyone appreciates the cooler temperatures, and the fishing pressure is considerably less than in the summer." That reduced fishing pressure is also directly related to another favorite fall activity. No matter how much you love to fish the thought of missing your favorite football game is simply not an option for most fans. Not a problem says Captain Garner, "We have many guests who, like our crew love fishing and football. So we created a tailgate and game day experience on the boat." Garner and his crew mates light the grill in the morning and keep it going all day on the boat. "We put the game on the TV and keep an eye on the lures and the grill. Everyone gets to see the game while fishing. It's a unique game day experience that our customers love.
