Speckled Trout fishing in Mobile Bay and the surrounding inshore waters of Alabama can be very rewarding. From wade fishing for trout throwing topwaters, fishing piers, oyster beds, rigs, to catching trout in the deep water rivers in the winter months, there is usually always a good trout bite somewhere along the shores of Mobile Bay.
Redfish, unlike trout, can tolerate just about all weather conditions here in south Alabama. Redfishing in Mobile Bay and Orange Beach is great year-round. Perdido Pass in Orange Beach and Dixie Bar at Fort Morgan are both popular spots to find the big "Bull" Reds. All of the river systems off of Mobile Bay produce high numbers of slot size redfish. Redfish are not picky eaters; they feed on crabs, shrimp, mullet, croakers, eels, etc...
Flounder fishing in Alabama's inshore waters is great, and they can be caught year-round.Live finger mullet and bull minnows are good choices for bait, but a 1/4 ounce lead-head jig with a soft grub draws plenty of attention from flounder too. They get very abundant on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay in the late summer and early fall around piers, points, and dropoffs. July, August, and September are my favorite months to fish for Flounder.
Triple Tail (Blackfish)
Triple Tail, also known as Blackfish, are migratory fish and can be caught in the Mobile Bay area from May through September. A very exciting and acrobatic fish to catch, you can usually find them around channel markers, pilings, tide lines, and any floating debris. They will often be right on the surface of the water close to structure searching for their next meal. Triple Tail will eat just about anything that comes through their path, however, a live shrimp is almost a guarantee to get a bite.
White Trout are very similar to Speckled Trout. Although usually smaller in size, they can be just as much fun to catch. White trout are usually found in large schools in the deeper waters around the many artificial reefs in Mobile Bay as well as passes and channels. White trout usually feed lower in the water column than speckled trout do, and once you find them, a soft plastic with a 1/8 or 1/4 ounce jig-head does the trick.
