Alabama Gulf Coast Fishing Forecast: August 2013

July was one of the most unusual months I have ever experienced in the heat of the summer. It sure was windy and rainy. We usually experience nice calm seas and mostly dry weather. We will hopefully be in our normal weather pattern for August. Amberjack season opens August 1st and I know everyone is ready to go find the big one. We will hopefully spend some tripsAug 1st, 2013

Mobile Bay Fishing Forecast: August 2013

Does everyone like the weather? Plenty of wind, rain, and don't forget the muddy water that makes June and July and like one we haven't seen in many years. At one point, I would have taken a bet that water temps could have never been in the lowermid 80's after the 22nd of July. Put this all together and it put us in the toughest August fishing I can remember. So, the best chance for clean water is south and east of Point Clear to the Fort Morgan peninsula. Aug 1st, 2013

Kayak Report: July 2013

Summer is here! Get out to fish early and late in the day to beat the heat. Fishing the flats at these times has resulted in some good trout and reds lately. My best results for trout have come from fishing Sebile stick shads and MirrOlure top dog Jr.’s. The fish have been more aggressive and I am speeding up my retrieval. With the reds I am going with saltwater assassin plastic sea shads on a 1/8 oz. pro-elite jig head or an Aqua dream spoons. I am fishing these baits slow up near the grass lines where the reds tend to troll looking for a quick meal. Jul 1st, 2013

Shore & Pier Report: July 2013

“Hotter than a 4th of July firecracker” usually describes the weather this month for the shore bound angler from Orange Beach to Dauphin Island. But savvy anglers willing to wake up well before daylight and get their fishing in before the sun rises high and scorches the crowds of beachgoers arriving by 9am often have plenty of room and more comfortable conditions in which to fish.Jul 1st, 2013

Dauphin Island Fishing Forecast: July 2013

July is here that means RODEO TIME! The Alabama Deep Sea Rodeo is upon us, and that means hot weather and hot fishing. The fishing will continue to be hot while dodging pop up showers. The speckled trout should start moving to the north more than they have so far this summer and will continue to be more abundant. Jul 1st, 2013
