Au------
I dont know how much you fish LL lights but its been my experience that the lights accross from the launch usually are good as well as the lights on the North Side going East. If i may make a suggeation--down size your bait to a small gulp or small zoom on a 1/16 lead head. The fish are feeding on minnows right now. Good Luck---------BT66
Looking forward to your posts------

I've wondered a lot about sight fishing in little lagoon. Looks like the water can get shallow and clear.

Any experience with this??

When you put your boat or kayak in at Moes landing look to your left and start fising for Reds all the way up to the end of the lagoon or to the east. Lots of Reds in there in the grass area. Also, the creek or body of water that goes up to the highway should have reds in there to. Next if you are there when the tide is about one to two hours from high tide fish these areas where the water will be coming back into the east area of the lagoon. Should be fish in there feeding on the bait fish coming out of the ditch or creek. bob

Thanks for the info. I don't know what the deal was this weekend but it appeared to be dead to me.
Friday night I fished from about 9-12 pm and only caught the smallest redfish I've ever seen.
Saturday morning I fished that point directly across from the public launch. I hooked and lost a keeper (17-20) inch range trout, and landed one that was about 1/2 inch short. I went back out that night when we got back from the bars and fished from about 12-1 and caught another baby redfish along with a baby flounder.
Then Sunday morning (7-9) I fished from to the east of the public launch around the docs, channels, grassy points, etc. I couldn't buy a bite.

I don't know if I missed the good times this weekend but I never really saw fish feeding on baitfish. I briefly spoke with a woman on the grassy point on my way in saturday morning in a bright orange or yellow kayak and she said that it was slow for her too.

oh well....i'll get em next time.

Great report its a shame you did not catch more fish. If you believe in feeding times of fish and deer ect I have used this site to give me a idea what time I want to go. The moon is getting fuller and you would think during the full moon at night sometime they would be smaking the crap out of the minnows or shrimp. The minnows got to eat sometime and they got to grow and do their thing. The specks and white trout got to eat as well.

Here is the link to the Tides 4 fishing site. Pick the date and time you where fishing and see if you where off. On sat it looked like the night fishing was not very good look at the numbers of fish in the time period you want to fish. Not many on those dates. One moarning it was good six fish after day light. I like this site and the times are the same feeding times that are posted in the Mobile Register on Sunday. Many deer hunters like these feeding times they say they are on the money. Fisherman dont like to talk much about moon phases I think they feel its witch craft. Hope you enjoy it at least you can use the tides listing at least they are important. Thanks for the report. bob

Next time you come let us know and we can join you . Its fun to fish in a group. The most important thing if you dont see fish around the lights or they wont bite in five to ten minutes move to a new light. If you spook the fish at one of these lights leave and come back in 20 minutes they normaly return and start feeding. Yes you got to fish when you can but last night I did not fish just did not think it was worth it. I even ran my motor for five minutes in the yard got everthing ready. May go thursday some where. The time to go is early day light stop at 9 am. Or fish one two hours befor dark then hit the lights or get there at the lights at 9 pm. I want to start fishing the lights around the Grand Hotel and mullet point. Got to go first and learn the lights fish may or may not be there.
