How are the redfish biting around the east end of Dauphin Island? I was wondering should I try my luck on the island or fish the pier before the bridge?

The three together in one picture were caught on the bay side, wade fishing live shrimp under a cork. The 1st picture and largest fish was caught mid morning on gulf side with my surf rig (fresh cut peeled shrimp) on 2/0 khale pompano hooks.

I came down and fished the east end of the island back in the middle of October and caught around 10 bull reds. I mainly just want to fish for quantity instead of quality, being ones in the slot. Do you think I should try the bayside for this or continue fishing the gulf side?

Usually I will catch more reds on the bayside, but bigger ones can be had on the Gulf side. So, for quantity, fish the bay and you should get plenty of action from trout, drum, croakers.
