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.

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.
