January

Inshore fishing is seriously productive in January, so start your year off in the best way – you’ll find Speckled Trout and Redfish in abundance. Around the reefs and wrecks, Grouper species can be found lurking.

February

In the flats and shallows, Bull Redfish and Sheepshead are biting hard. Speckled Trout fishing stays strong. If you’re willing to travel seriously far offshore, you’ll come face-to-gills with hard-fighting yellowfin Tuna.

March
Cobia fishing around the reefs is seriously plentiful, with King and Spanish Mackerel also making an appearance closer to shore. In the bays, Flounder start to turn up, and Redfish fishing remains strong.
 
April

Cobia and Amberjack can be found by the reefs. Further offshore, Mahi Mahi begin to show up. As well as Flounder and “Specks,” huge Redfish make an appearance inshore, so head to Mobile Bay to catch trophy Bull!

May

As the weather heats up, so does the fishing! Head offshore to troll for Wahoo and Mahi Mahi, hit the reefs for Grouper and Snapper, or stay inshore to hook huge Redfish, Speckled Trout, Tripletail, and plenty more.

June

Heads up, Red Snapper fans! June usually heralds the open season for this species, so make sure you book in advance. Big game enthusiasts can head offshore to target Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Marlin species.

July

It would be easier to list what isn’t biting in July – this month sees pretty much every species on offer! Inshore and offshore waters are abundant. Charters can get pretty full, so make sure you book well in advance. 

August

If you want to bow to the Silver King, this is the month to visit, with Tarpon showing up along the shores of the Gulf in abundance. Offshore, Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Sailfish are all biting.

September

As the waters cool down slightly, the bite only heats up! Inshore, Speckled Trout and Redfish are biting hard, with huge trophy species regularly being caught. Head offshore to hook Tuna species.

October
Inshore, Flounder and Redfish can be found swarming the shallows, and Speckled Trout start to make a reappearance. Bottom-dwellers are biting hard around the reefs, and Kingfish can be hooked in the Gulf.
 
November

Bull Redfish are on offer inshore, and they’re joined by tasty Flounder and Speckled Trout, making this the perfect time for a Mobile Bay trip! The reefs are swarming with Grouper and Snapper species.

December
 It may be the end of the year, but the fishing season is far from over! Head to the bays and flats to hook Specks, Redfish, and Flounder, or head seriously far offshore to battle some huge Tuna species.

July fishing trip
Chris A. fished with Capt. Lynn's – Gulf Shores on July 5, 2020
Be prepared for some rough water. Summertime storms can pop up quickly. Expect to get wet. Pay attention to directions from the captain and the fish are a lot stronger than you might think.
CAPT BRAD
Mack H. fished with Nauti Fish Co – Gulf Shores on May 30, 2020
First would be book Capt Brad, Nauti Fish Co. I would recommend checking what fish are in season. I also would recommend looking into state waters vs federal waters. I messed up and looked at seasons wrong or something i also was totally ignorant to all the regulations on state waters and federal waters. Brad thoroughly explained all this but i wish i had known all this before planning a vacation. I most likely would have came a week later or maybe even 6 weeks later.
Great time with Captain Rick
