    Whens a good time to come

    I haven't been pier fishing in a couple of years, but I am getting the itch again. I used to go to Navarre but I have sort of soured on it due to the "culture" that exists there. I thought about trying Gulf Shores this time, although it is a little farther than Navarre from where I live in Atlanta. I have heard a lot of good things about Gulf Shores but have yet to go there. I have always found that October is usually the best month for pier fishing. I am usually trying to catch Kings, Spanish or Reds, Trout. Is October a good month for Gulf Shore, is November too late in the season or is the water still too warm in September.

    Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.

    I like the people at the Gulf Shores Pier and I like the fishing, too. October is my favorite month. My advice to you is to search the REPORTS sections from previous years. You may get a good sense of, from year-to-year, what the King/Spanish bite was like in those different months. There aren't a lot of skinny water reporters, which accounts to the lack of discussion of slot reds and speckled trout. But October is a good trout/reds month.

    October is great. November has been warm the last few years, but it could be different this year!
