Mobile Bay, Gulf Shores and Dauphin Island Fishing Reports for May 1-7, 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 Blane Roberts-Perdido Blane who is giving us the Alabama Fishing report all the way from the Flora Bama to Fort Morgan. PerdidoBlane has been having pretty good success in the surf with the right tactics. He gives great surf fishing tactics on how to be successful with pompano from the beach and he gives Capt. Richard some secrets to be successful with pompano when he sees them from his 25’ Contender Bay and he has been seeing pompano while sight fishing redfish around the mouth of Mobile Bay. He also gives great tips on how to cut down on “undesirable” catches from the surf this time of year. Of course, undesirable is in the eye of the rod holder. 

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.

For the Alabama Fishing Report offshore and the Gulf fishing report, tune in for this week's report with Captain Skipper Thierry. 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. Capt. Skipper had a great offshore trip very recently and we talked about how many miles offshore bluewater is right now. We talk about how they were able to have success while bottom fishing on this trip with live and artificial bait and how to deploy those tactics. He gives us tips on where to head this weekend if you are looking to target yellowfin tuna and how to catch them.
