Gulf Shores Fishing Seasons
The weather may be cold, but don't be put off. Often, you'll find that the colder the weather, the hotter the fishing. We recommend sight fishing for Bull Redfish along the beaches on a clear day or targeting Grouper offshore.
Despite the cold weather continuing, Redfish and Sheepshead are still biting well in the bays. Shake the winter doldrums with the annual Black Drum run, which is an excellent opportunity to catch big fish on light tackle.
Celebrate Spring Break in style by catching Redfish and Trout in the bays and passes, and looking out for Amberjack and Grouper over the reefs and wrecks offshore. Cobia arrive at the end of the month, too!
As the waters heat up, the number of species available increases. Cobia fishing is on top form and will continue through May, and sight fishing for these big fish as they swim past the beaches is an unforgettable experience.
The action in the deep is getting hotter as Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, and Tuna are caught on long offshore charters. Bottom fishing is also on the rise, while Flounder and Spanish Mackerel are rewarding catches on light tackle.
June in the Gulf Shores is all about Red Snapper. With both state and federal waters usually opening this month, this is prime time to catch some great table fare, with Mahi Mahi on offer in the deep, too.
The town of Gulf Shores is at its hottest and the fishing is diverse. Try fighting a Shark in shallow water, or enjoy catching Pompano on light tackle, inshore. Meanwhile, Sailfish and Tuna can be caught offshore.
With temperatures soaring, the best time to fish is in the early morning. Your best bet is to stay nearshore to troll for King and Spanish Mackerel or hunt for migrating Tarpon inshore, as Alabama bottom fishing bite is on fire.
Morning fishing continues to be the best option, as humidity is high. Enjoy the Kingfish migration, travel offshore for White Marlin, or have fun inshore with a strong Speckled Trout and Redfish bite – it's all going on!
The weather becomes cooler, with cold fronts changing up the fishing. On days that aren't affected by the infamous "Blue Norther," you can have a productive day bottom fishing or targeting Speckled Trout and Bull Reds.
Bull Redfish are gathering off the beaches and make for an amazing spectacle as they head to their breeding grounds. Weather conditions can put a halt to offshore fishing charters, so make sure to be flexible.
Bull Redfish are still appearing out of Gulf Shores. Sight fish on a clear day for some of the most exciting fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, with mild weather conditions giving you the chance to head out on the water.
