Mobile Bay, Dauphin Island, Gulf Shores, And Orange Beach Fishing Report for April 17-23, 2023

The Alabama Saltwater Fishing Report is your best resource for the Gulf Shores Surf Fishing Report, Orange Beach Fishing Report, Dauphin Island Fishing Report, Mobile Bay Fishing Report, and Alabama saltwater fishing everywhere in between.

For the anglers looking for a Gulf Shores surf Fishing Report, Gulf State Park pier fishing report, Orange Beach Fishing Report and Fort Morgan fishing report, look no further than the Alabama Saltwater Fishing Report. Every week we bring you an "onshore" report for those anglers interested in a gulf shores surf fishing report or a gulf shores pier fishing report. This week we're talking to David Thornton AKA the “Pier Pounder” who is giving us the Alabama Fishing report all the way from the Flora Bama to Fort Morgan. This week, Mr. David gives us a Pompano and surf fishing report based upon what he is seeing on the beaches right now, as well as how we are looking this season based on historical data from past seasons on the beaches around Orange Beach and golf Shores, Alabama. We also do a deep dive on Pompano rigs, what to use in different conditions whether that be windy, dirty, water, slick calm and clear water. We cover everything that you need to know in this episode to be successful with Pompano in any conditions.

For our guys looking for the Dauphin Island inshore fishing report or the Orange Beach Inshore Fishing Report, Capt. Richard Rutland has what you need to know to catch more speckled trout, redfish, and tripletail and how to catch each of these species in the area. The tactics and tips we discuss here each week can be applied to many areas when fishing Alabama's coast and other states along the Gulf of Mexico. In this week's inshore report, we talk about what is happening around the Mississippi sound, Mobile Bay, as well as the Dauphin Island beaches. Captain Richard has been having success with big speckled trout, as well as numbers of speckled trout, depending on where he is fishing and the rigs that he is using. We dive deep on sight fishing redfish in several different applications, as well as Bull red fish showing up on Dixey bar just outside of Mobile Bay, close to Fort Morgan

For the Alabama Fishing Report offshore and the Gulf fishing report, tune in for this week's report with Capt. King Marchand on the Lady Ann out of Dauphin Island, Alabama. You never know what you might get in the offshore Gulf Fishing report each week. We cover nearshore fishing from Captain's running center consoles and fishing for red snapper, grouper, triggerfish, king mackerel, cobia, and more. When we head to blue water, we have contributions from some of the best Captain's on the tournament circuit and off who fish for tuna, wahoo, mahi-mahi, and billfish. Captain King gives a really fun offshore report this week, he has been way offshore doing some tuna fishing, grouper fishing, and has had great success doing both. Captain King walks us through the story of a really cool catch, a giant Mako shark that was safely released. Captain King tells us what tactics, tips, and techniques he was using to be successful to catch yellowfin and blackfin tuna on his overnight trips recently.
