Fishing Reports

June 2018

East Side
We are switching into that summer pattern slowly. Early morning action leads to mid morning slow down at times. Finding those flats holding bait with deep water close by is key. Speckled trout and Redfish have still been caught in good numbers along the Bay side of Fort Morgan and speckled trout are on the beach spreading out from the mouth of Mobile Bay. Fishing that first trough with your favorite twitch bait or soft plastic should produce. Orange Beach night fishing one of my favorite trips should be on fire I plan a trip soon. Many lights are accessible from Boggy point boat launch into Terry Cove using the sand launch to the left of the boat ramp. One tip for fishing lights bigger fish tend to hang on the edges of ths lights. You will catch plenty in the middle but quality on thr outer edges. The flounder are hit or miss and I haven’t heard of multi fish trips yet this year in Baldwin County. Not to many weighed in for last month’s Bagwell tournament. Hope to see you on the water, remember there is always time for One More Cast.

Summer is here and the bite is red hot on Dauphin Island right now. The water temps are nearing the Mid 80s and the Speckled trout are roaming the flats. Look to target these trout around Aloe and Heron Bays as well as behind the golf course. These fish will be highly active at dusk and dawn with the bite slowing down towards the middle of the day. Look to target these fish with top water lures and Mirrodines early on and shift to a jig in deeper water once it starts to heat up.

Remember to always tell someone your float plan, and wear your PFD!
