Default DI monday night 11/8

Was waiting for sunset on DI, fished most of the night and picked up most in less than 1 ft water. First time for it, double gigged- had a smaller one on and here comes the big one (27" and a little over 7 lbs) swimming at me. So i took a shot at sandwiching her down on bottom with smaller fish on top and followed through with dip net to secure the prizes. Got both, wow what a thrill. Also picked up various mullet and two reds. Can't wait!

27" flounder is a great night all by itself. Did you gig the reds?

Flnz- Gigging Reds in Alabama- Asked a conservation officer a few weeks ago about gigging different species, the only comment he had was that regular limits apply. Alabama hasn't really examined gigging the way Florida has. Only in 2008 did Al require a license to gig, the saltwater fishing license was "reel and rod", now the law reads "possession" so it doesn't matter the method of taking fish. Something he did mention Oct24 til Dec 31? there's a 25 limit for mullet, hadn't seen that posted on outdoorAlabama.com, well figure... another gotcha. I do hate to pass up sticking Reds(or Speckled Trout) while poking that Florida sand.

I called and was told gamefish could NOT be taken by spear or gig. Redfish, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, etc. are illegal to gig or spear. Not to cast stones....because I did not know a few weeks ago (don't ask how I found out).
Dauphin Island office confirmed this. They also wanted to know if I knew how to reach you. You had a two thousand dollar fine coming your way and up to three years in Holman prison.





Just joking.

I would hate to see anyone get "gigged" for gigging a redfish.

That was my understanding. I have had to hold myself back here lately from gigging them reds, they have been thick. Either way looks like a great trip. Nice mess!
