Fish Species Calendar

Alabama Inshore Fishing near Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, Dauphin Island and Weeks Bay is year round fishing fun. Some species of fish around Mobile Bay like speckled trout and redfish are always available. King Mackerel, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and Jack Crevalle are seasonal fish and are only around during the warmer months of the year.

Our friends at Alabama Marine Resources and CCA of Alabama have been working together to create more habitat for the fish species that we all love to target and they have created an interactive map that you can use to better understand where and how those reefs look underwater.
