I was fishing for Reds yesterday along the edge of Perdido Bay, not far from Herron Bayou, and My live shrimp got hit, as I was reeling him in, I said " it looks like a bass" got it to the boat and sure enough, about a 1 lb bass. I reached my fingers in the water and tasted them- salty as can be!

I am fairly new to coastal fishing, but I was very surprised to catch a bass in the bay- is this normal?

I'll bet he fought better than any bass you ever caught too. Salty Bass fight great, maybe due to their Shrimp diet.

The Mobile River Delta is one of the best Bass fishing areas I have ever fished and, you don't ever know what you are gonna catch next. Ask a Mobile fishing nativeto take you to"The Battery" or "Kings Battery." I've caught as many as 9 species of fish there in a day, both fresh and SW fish.

Live Shrimp and Shrimp imitating flies or lures are killers on salty Bass.

I've caught Flounder and Jack Crevalle in the fast water behind Jim Woodruff Dam on the Appalach and below Jackson Bluff Dam on the Ochlocknee.

Yes they are VERY plentiful. Especially around the mouths of herron, bayou marcus and 11 mile....but you can catch them anywhere from herron on around to perdido river.:bowdown
