Where should I go to catch speckled trout in Alabama?

If you live in Alabama, and you want to know which places in your area are likely to give you the best chances of catching specs, you might want to pay some attention to the areas all along the gulf beaches throughout the month of March. In the Spring in general, use croakers or live shrimp close to shore in grassy or marsh areas. Other good area for spring spec include artificial reefs inshore, oyster reefs, shoal areas where the tides flood, and along rock jetties. In Fall and Winter, move into the river areas and the areas above the Mobile Bay Cause way, concentrating on channels, drop off areas, and deep holes. If you are looking for the top areas to catch specs in the state of Alabama, I can help you with that as well, just remember that these areas are seasonal, and you always have to adapt your methods for conditions, time of day and other variables. Mobile Bay is always a good place to fish for specs in the state of Alabama. Concentrate your efforts around the oyster reefs and the structure of the oil rigs during the summer, but when the weather and the water gets colder, you are going to have to move out into the river channels, because the bait fish go there to escape the salinity and to find the thermal currents where it is a little warmer, and the specs are going to be close behind them. You will also have to fish a little deeper at this time as well. Try the Blakely River area, and especially the Kings Battery area. This area has some 60 to 70 foot deep areas that hold some warmth, and you are almost guaranteed to find spec there during the cold weather. Another good winter spot for spec in Alabama is the Dog River, Rabbit Creeks, Hall’s Mill, Theodore Industrial Canal, and East and West Fowl Rivers.
