Well, it's HOT, as in temperature. It doesn't matter if you're "on the water" or not, it's still HOT. Fishing off a boat is great if you know where to fish. We went out with a guide since nobody was catching anything off the shore from either the surf or the bay side, except a few catfish. He put us on some of his top spots. It started with a slow bite on a neap tide in the AM, but got better as the day progressed. All 4 of us limited out on BIG reds, we also caught shark, a couple Spanish, and had some bait stealing ladyfish too. Fun. It's fishing, not always catching.

Book a trip and go fishing. You won't regret it. Caught a couple of meals from the beach, too. Caught a 20+ pound Black Drum from the beach in front of our house, one night. That was quite a fight. Go Hogs -- WPS

Snapper heaven. Best and most prolific Red Snapper haven on the planet. More structure in Alabama state water than all other gilf states combined. Dauphin Island is the Snapper capital of the world!

Take a charter out and let the captains show you what good fishing is. Shore fishing is boring compared to being on the boat.

Take all the advice of Captain Mark and the deck hand. This is not lake or pond fishing, knowing when to set the hook is key.

Take a pad or something to sit on if you have back issues,I dont think alot of bay boats have padded seats

It was a lot of fun. If the wind is blowing, the boat ride can get rough so be prepared.
