Default orange beach alabama fishing

I just recently started a job over in orange beach and since I'm mainly going to be working evenings and nights I plan to do some serious fishing before work. I've never really fished over there before other than catching some Spanish right before my job interview so I'm just trying to find some info About where would be a decent spot to fish and for what(not looking for secret spots). I would like to stay clear from the numerous amount of boat traffic too. I'm going to be bringing my kayak with me so I can reach more spots. I'm assuming there is a decent amount of reds and specks back there right about now? if you're familiar with the fishing over there and can give me some pointers that would be awesome!

I know I'm going to have to get a license for over there. $50 for annual and it expires in august.

I don't know of any area you can avoid boat traffic in OB, but the popular places that can be reached by yak are the rocks at the Pass, the reef behind walker island near the pass, and the docks at night. The docks at night will get you out of the daytime boat traffic. Other places would include any grass flat during the early, early morning hours before the jet skis/boats get going. Take a look at Google Earth and you can find those rather easily.

Yak fishing off the beach is good, but no trout really unless you are down near fort morgan or little lagoon. Little lagoon is a good place to trout fish from a yak.

The best place to fish from a yak is prolly big lagoon just across the line in Florida. Yes, it is another license, but at least it is an annual one. And if you fish the east end of Ono, be careful, most of that is Florida waters, where you will need a FL license.

I've fished OB my entire life basically, and I always pack a Florida license.

Thanks. My main concern with boat traffic is around the island where everyone is going to party. I've looked at Google Earth to try and find some good looking areas. Cotton bayou seems like a good place for dock light fishing.

I already have a fl fishing license so I'm good there. My main gripe was that the alabama annual pass isn't annual unless you buy it in august. It looks like I'm going to have to spend $50 on a pass for 2 months and then spend another $50.
