June 13, 2019
While the industry of deep sea fishing Orange Beach doesn’t enjoy a large coastline, the fishery both inshore and offshore is productive, and robust, largely due to extensive reef development. That artificial reef system has resulted in what many say is the best red snapper fishing in the region, if not the world.  That didn’t happen by accident or overnight.
