Fishing in Mobile

Looking for an authentic, southern-style angling experience? Fishing in Mobile, Alabama offers up an irresistible combination: direct access to incredible brackish, fresh, and salt waters, and captains looking to pass on their local knowledge to angling enthusiasts visiting from near and far. There’s also plenty of tasty table fare to target, so you’ll be able to stock your cooler with delectable Speckled Trout, Flounder, Redfish, Grouper and Snapper species, and plenty more. 

What will my trip look like?

Mobile may look like an ordinary port city, but it holds the key to some extraordinary fishing opportunities! It provides access to Mobile Bay, the Mobile-Tensaw River Delta (known locally as simply the “Mobile Delta,”) and a variety of brackish rivers. What does this mean? Basically, there are plenty of diverse fisheries to explore, and they offer up the perfect chance for more experienced anglers to test their skills. 

How will I fish?

As the focus in Mobile is on local-style fishing, chances are your charter will have a strong preference for fishing with light tackle no matter which waters you cast your line in. This technique is preferred thanks to the extra skill it often requires. You’ll also have to fight the fish on the end of your line just that little bit harder if you want to reel it in!
Although the waters of Mobile are diverse, the species you’ll usually be targeting tend to stay the same. This gives you the freedom to choose your fishing grounds based on other factors, such as how much time you have to spare, and whether you want to go after pure table fare or trophy-sized fish. 

What will I fish for?

So what are local anglers targeting here? If you’re familiar with the inshore and nearshore fishing around Mobile, it should come as no surprise that Speckled Trout remain a firm favorite. If you’re fishing the Mobile Delta and local rivers, you’ll also find Flounder lurking in these brackish waters, as well as Redfish and Tripletail. 
These species are also abundant within Mobile Bay. If you’re willing to spend a little more time on the water, you’ll have the chance to plumb the depths of the bay’s reefs for bottom-dwelling Snapper and Grouper species.

When to go

Fishing in Mobile, Alabama is generally good year round, especially if you’re looking to hook Speckled Trout. If you’re looking to hook brag-worthy Red Snapper, make sure you check when open season is, as there are strict restrictions regarding this species.

Need to know

The majority of Mobile fishing charters really live up to that famed “southern hospitality,” and will make sure you’re decked out with rods, reels, light tackle, and a fishing license. All you need to bring along are weather-appropriate clothes and sunscreen, as well as snacks and drinks. 
If you’re looking for an authentic angling adventure that’ll have you fishing like a real southerner, Mobile is the perfect starting point. Come discover it for yourself!
