Looking for adventure in fishing? Well, look no more! Oil rig fishing is considered by many fishing pros as some of the “most exciting and best fishing in the world”. Here’s a closer look at one of our most thrilling fishing charters in the deep blue sea.
Since the first oil rig platform positioned itself off the Louisiana coast in 1947, the oil rig population has grown to more than 3,700. So many in fact, that these oil rigs have essentially created a man-made reef, home to several different species of fish. Unfortunately, oil rigs often receive bad press no thanks in part to the 2010 BP oil spill. This catastrophe was an isolated incident as most oil rigs operate flawlessly and without incident. In fact, we see them as a benefit to our coast as they provide structure and shelter for many fish species, thus creating some seriously good fishing.
Oil rig fishing in the deep blue sea is action-packed, always with surprises, as you never know what type of fish will be at the end of your line. Varieties that you may see include snapper, amberjack, grouper, lemon fish, redfish, shark, tuna, wahoo, and marlin.
So if you are looking for an experience of a lifetime, oil rig fishing is the way to go. We go way out, in waters that are thousands of feet deep where you will find truly unique creatures. Prepare yourself for a long day (or night) of tireless fishing and a really good time.
