My 2013 kayak fishing experience in Mobile Bay was the best I have ever had. Naturally there were some dud days, but from May to the end of July the speckled trout bite on the artificial reefs in Fairhope and Point Clear was hot. These were quality trout in the 16-19 inch range. During those months NOT catching the limit was the abnormality. I had several trips in which I caught over 30 specks. I used strictly artificial baits while my fishing companions used a combination of artificial and live bait. I'm hoping the 2014 late Spring, early Summer bite is as good.
