Mobile Bay, Dauphin Island & Gulf Shores Fishing Report For October 2-8, 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. David gives us the rundown of what is biting in the surf right now and how to catch the species that you are targeting whether that is pompano, redfish, flounder, whiting or big black drum we cover it on this report. With the weather changing and October being a transition month, David tells us what we can expect in the weeks to come as water and air temperatures decrease. 

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. Capt. Richard has been dialed in on the speckled trout and the flounder. Capt. Richard tells us what to look for as we are targeting trout and flounder during this transition period. The shrimp seem to be on the move and that is making the fish naturally fall into the fall transition. We will see if the pattern of high salinity holds and how Red October unfolds! 

For the Alabama Fishing Report offshore and the Gulf fishing report, tune in for this week's report with  Thomas Hilton. 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. With the weather being rough and windy we get an offshore snapshot from Hilton’s Offshore Chartsto get a picture of the Gulf from the eye in the sky. 

It's all brought to you whether it's good, bad, or ugly. Please subscribe, rate, and review wherever you listen to podcasts and if you'd like us to email you the podcast, just head over to and we'll send you the new show each week.
