Mobile / Dauphin Island Feb 2020

Capt. Charlie Gray

Down around Dauphin Island, we are definitely still in the winter fishing pattern, the water is still fresh and cold and well below that magical number of 62 degrees which is when the trout will begin moving out of the deep rivers and onto the warmer flats around the small islands. February is notoriously a really bad month to fish inshore and catch trout consistently. Until the waters warm inApril, the trout will still be in the deeper tidal rivers like Fowl, Dog, and Bayou La Batre and some of the warmer and deeper bays around the Island; Mainly now, I am throwing hard baits like the Yo-Zuri 3DS Minnow with a green or black back and silver sides and soft plastics. When using the soft plastics, make sure you jig lightly and keep in contact with the bottom when jigging; I am still using various types of soft plastics too like the shrimp, mullet or minnow imitations including the Matrix shad, VuDu Shrimp in various colors from pin
