Surf Fishing Tips Fishing Gulf Shores Beaches

Think Target Areas

The Gulf Shores Alabama area has multiple spots for fishing. First think piers! Piers that extend out into the Gulf of Mexico like the Alabama Gulf State Park pier. This pier provides structure for bait fish. The pier also provides a platform that helps you reach farther out from shore. This pier is the longest pier in the world that extends out into the gulf and it attracts other fishermen. You think, whats good about other fishermen?How will this help? Remember my tactic, listen. By watching and listening to the environment and other fisherman you become aware of whats working for them. Also you learn whats biting and at what times the fish are feeding best. Learn from others by watching and listening to them.

Most people fishing pick a spot and try their luck. That's OK, but if your serious about catching fish keep thinking Targeted Areas. Sloughs are great areas to target. A slough is a deep trough that runs parallel to the beach. Sloughs sometimes border a small sand bar or many times a slough will be between two bars. These sloughs are sometimes visible during low tides. Search for sloughs on low tides and fish the sloughs on high tides when bait fish draw to the shore. Try different distances when casting with multiple rods to increase chances of locating fish in unfamiliar territory.

Think passes, peninsula points, and rock jetties. These areas in Gulf Shores Alabama are great surf fishing hot spots. You will normally see bait fish, feeding birds and other fishermen. Passes produce good currents that move bait fish such as shrimp, shad, crabs and glass minnows. The Perdido Pass also known as the Alabama Point area has the qualities every fisherman looks for when they go surf fishing. Normally outgoing tides from the inner back bays and rivers flow through these passes to the Gulf of Mexico. Remember to keep your eyes on the birds such as seagulls and Pelicans. If they are feeding on bait fish, so are the bigger fish. This tactic will easily get you started on a wonderful Gulf Shores Alabama Fishing Adventure.
