Apparently, trout and redfish are biting down in rockport, port aransas, and laguna madre.  Good fishing or Good football, its a tough call. Heading down to the Texas coast for fishing might be the best plan. You can watch the game on tv since its a 7pm start time.

In Alabama, the season of fall means life returns to normal as football season is back. Whether its Roll Tide or War Eagle, football in the state of Alabama is serious business. Fall in Alabama also means some of the best fishing of the year. Cooler weather means great bass fishing on the lakes. Check out Lay Lake or Weiss Lake for some quality bass fishing. There are some great guides on the lakes who can get you on some serious bass. Saltwater fishing is also great in the fall down on the Gulf. Most prefer Orange Beach or Gulf Shores areas when fishing on the coast. Fall is great time to do some nearshore fishing for spanish mackerel. If you are looking to go further offshore, try bottom fishing for snapper or grouper or try your hand at deep sea fishing. Alabama fishing charters can take you 50 miles out to fish for Tuna, Marlin, Wahoo, or Mahi-Mahi. We have a variety of Alabama fishing guides that offer trips according to your specific trip desires.

Texas Redfishing

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Fishing for redfish in Texas is hard to beat. The waters down in the Gulf of Mexico are a perfect habitat for Reds and the numerous back bays and jetties are prime for fishing. Legislation several years ago banning commercial fishing for redfish helped tremendously. Because of this, the Texas Gulf attracts anglers from all over. Port Aransas fishing charters are some of the best to go with as this area is loaded with big redfish. Gavleston fishing charters are also a good option.  Don’t forget about South Padre fishing a little further south.  Plan a trip soon because fall is typically the best time to find redfish down on the Gulf.
