Red Snapper are among the most popular - and most delicious - fish found in the waters off of Perdid

While you'll definitely want to take the time to explore your Perdido Key Rentals, make the most of your trip by heading out on the water aboard a fishing charter. With a vast array of fish species and several strong events, the area is an angler's dream.

Spend a day on the Gulf fishing off Perdido Key

When you book your vacation to the Gulf Coast, you know to expect great things - especially when your trip includes a stay at stylish beach rentals in Perdido Key. The colorful community has a lot to offer vacationers staying in these well-appointed properties, but for most travelers, it won't be long until they hit the water on a nearby Orange Beach fishing charter in search of fun, adventure and maybe even a tasty catch for dinner. Since most charters will be able to provide prospective anglers with all the tools they'll need, all you'll have to do is climb aboard and get ready to reel one in.

What kinds of fish can I see?

The Gulf of Mexico is home to a rich diversity of sea life, so fishermen heading to Perdido Key have a bevy of opportunities to snag a winning fish. Among the more popular groups of fish found off the coast of Perdido Key is the snapper family. Anglers may be lucky enough to reel in gray, mutton or the prized red snapper - something that will go great in a nice butter sauce back at your Perdido Key condo or house.
Other tasty species found in these warm waters 
include Spanish and king mackerel; black, gag
and snowy grouper; and, of course, the delectable
speckled trout.

What if I want to compete?

Like many of the cities that line the Gulf Coast, Perdido Key also hosts a number of fishing competitions throughout the year that draw seafaring sportsmen from far and wide. From children's events like the Annual Junior Angler Tournament to more major competitions like the Annual Pensacola International Billfish Tournament, there is something for competitors of all skill levels. With great prizes on the line for many of these competitions, you may head home with more than fond memories of these events.
