Gulf Shores Fishing Report

Gulf Shores Fishing Report - June 2024 In Gulf Shores, fishing conditions are excellent as summer kicks off. Anglers targeting red snapper are reporting good catches offshore, especially around artificial reefs and deeper waters. King mackerel and Spanish mackerel are active closer to shore, with anglers having success using live bait and trolling near the reefs and along the Gulf State Park Pier. Speckled trout fishing remains steady in the bays and estuaries, particularly during early mornings and late evenings when they are feeding closer to the surface. Flounder are also being caught around the sandy bottoms and inlets. Weather conditions have been favorable, with mild winds and clear skies, making for comfortable fishing trips. Water temperatures are in the mid-70s Fahrenheit, ideal for a variety of species.

4 Hour Inshore Trip

We left from Fort Morgan Marina located in Gulf Shores, Alabama. The wind and current was perfect to fish the surf on the beach, so we decided to free line some live baits in the surf, and it paid off big time! The action was fast paced and non stop the entire time. We caught speckled trout, spanish mackerel, pompano amd whiting, all in the same spot! These fish can be found in the surf feeding in the rip currents. The sea weed is pretty bad, so we had to fish the live baits under a cork to prevent the sea weed from tangling the lines.

The water temps are on the rise and the fish bite is heating up along with it! Fishing will only get better in the coming months, and dont have to travel far to get to them. Often times just minutes from the marina. Speckled trout, spanish mackerel, redfish, white trout, flounder, pompano, king mackerel, all can be found within a 15 minute ride from the dock.

4hr Am Trip

Started the day fishing in the Gulf of Mexico out of Gulf Shores, Alabama. Our target species was Spanish Mackerel, and the action was fast and furious. These fish will hang around all summer long and can be found around any rigs in the gulf. We also caught a few sharks, blacktips, around 4 ft long. After we caught are limit of Spanish we headed back inshore to target speckled trout. We got lucky and found them on the first stop, fishing the rip currents on the beach. We also picked up a pompano and a whiting. Also got to see an aligator cruising around looking for breakfast! We finished the day with a limit of both Spanish and Trout.

4hr Afternoon Trip

The Speckled Trout bite is starting to heat up and will only get better as the water warms and the weather stabilizes. These fish can be found in shallow water very close to shore for the next few months. So if you dont like to travel far and fish calm water, this is the fish for you. We mainly target them with live baits under a cork. Gulf Shores has many varities of inshore fish that are delicious to eat, and the speckled trout ranks very high on that list.

4hr Afternoon Trip

We took advantage of the high tide on this afternoon trip and it paid off. We set out from Gulf Shores, Alabama in search of shallow water redfish. We found numerous fish in under 2 feet of water fishing in stumos and grass beds. Live shrimp 18 inches under a cork provided constant action. These fish will remain around until mid summer.
