Default Here at orange beach.

There has been 1 king and 3 bull reds pulled off the gs pier in the last 4 days
Super slow fishing. Was wanting to know if night fishing around 2am till down would be the best times to go fishing on the gs pier?

Maybe. The inside along the surf usually holds some HUGE trout, but getting them to eat is tough

Mid summer(August) is almost ALWAYS slow catching from the piers.
Last year there wasn't a single king caught from the GSPPier for 5 weeks!
But (like Chris said) there are fish in the surf (when conditions are favorable).
I caught my two largest speckled trout from the old GSPPier in late August.
Coincidentally that was in 1979 just two weeks before Hurricane Frederick

Bull minnows for flounder (slot redfish will eat them too).
Live shrimp (freelined or under a float) for speckled trout especially at night like you mentioned.

Good luck!
