Fishing for Flounder
"Flounder and redfish are stacked up at Fort Morgan," says Gary Davis of Foley, Alabama. Davis is a fishing guide at the Alabama Gulf Coast and this time of the year, Davis often can produce 30 to 50 flounder on an all-day trip in Mobile Bay. Jigs, live mudminnows, live shrimp and the D.O.A. three-inch soft-plastic shrimp are your best bets for productive baits. Flounder are fun to catch and delicious to eat, and fall is the best time to catch a bunch. Want to be guided by Gary Davis, then get in touch with him at:

David Brown of Orange Beach, Alabama, pictured with Ashley Boatright of Birmingham, catches plenty of flounder at Orange Beach at this time of year. Docks, rocks and wrecks pay off best for flounder. Call David Brown to guide you:

John Phillips, Jr., really enjoys catching flounder during the fall. Since John is not married, his mother and I get to cook and help him eat the flat fish he catches at the Gulf. A basketball coach and track coach at Mountain Brook Junior High, in Birmingham, Alabama, John doesn't get to go to the Gulf much during the fall. But when he does, he always brings flounder back for stuffing or frying.
Kirsten Kowalski of Birmingham, Alabama, likes to flounder fish with a great guide and good fisherman, Tom Madison of Foley, Alabama. Madison is a veteran flounder fisherman and loves to fish the oil rigs at Fort Morgan. Heck, I would fish with Tom even if I never caught another fish in the Gulf. He is just a great guy to spend the day with. However, I have never fished with Madison when we haven't come in with flounder, redfish and/or trout.
