The Bite

Windy Days

  When I looked at the forecast at the beginning of the week, I knew my patience and skills were going to be put to the test. With a predominantly SE wind at 15-20 mph, I put us a plan together for fishing the northern side of the peninsula for speckled trout and redfish.

His first 2 speckled trout.  High tide in the Orange Beach/Fort Morgan area was around mid day all week, which is ideal for the stretch we were fishing. We took both shrimp and croakers as bait, with shrimp being the bait of choice each day this week.

Cobia Fishing

  Spent the weekend fishing a cobia tournament in Destin, FL. If you're not familiar with cobia fishing, I'll run through the basics for you. These fish are mainly caught by sight fishing, from a tower, using jigs or live bait. The most popular bait is live eels, but they'll eat just about anything, given the opportunity.

  It's not uncommon to ride for hours and not see a fish. Especially these last few years. The cobia population has took a huge dive over the past ten years.

Fishing in January

Nice redfish caught inshore fishing in Orange Beach AlabamaWhat's Going On This Month?
 
 
December and January are not just a couple of months stuck in the calendar just for hunting. It's a great time to get out and do some fishing. Redfish, sheepshead, and black drum can be found in large numbers around the docks and any other structure with some moving water around it. I'm using a Carolina rig, adjust weight accordingly. For sheepshead about 8 to 10 inches of 15lb to 20lb leader. I like florocarbon but regular  mono will work. Attach #2 khale hook and a live shrimp and you are in business!
