Default Perdido Key or Fort Morgan

Hi there, got a 7 day trip to Gulf Shores coming up end of July. Pulling the 23' Carolina Skiff down for fishing. Torn between storing boat at Romar or Gulf Shores Yacht Club and Marina...hear the fishing is pretty good in the bay down near Fort Morgan but was curious how the fishing was around Perdido Key area? Looking for inshore and off shore to a few miles...any advice or recommendation would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

If you are looking to catch trout and reds, your better fishing is in the Fort Morgan area.

Ft Morgan area. You have the entire bay, or just offshore to the public reefs or the closer platforms. Having lived here for a couple of years, I have done both and Ft Morgan area wins due to the better inshore fishing. Tight lines..

I've had great luck with fishing the rigs in Mobile Bay. Can usually hook into trout with no problem. Catch the bull reds off the dixie bar headed out the pass.

I'll be down next week as well, but i'll be docked around perdido bay fishing all week. Plan on hitting the lights on Ono Island while gigging and bowfishing at night and fishing the inshore reefs during the day.

look for a seafoam 19' Carolina Skiff if you're around.

Hit the dock lights at night live shrimp is key also the pass on the rocks with live shrimp can yield a number of species redfish, black snapper among the most common
