Captain Dan Kolenich is open year-round.
We provide Orvis fly rods and reels, flies, tippets, leaders, bait (chum), Okuma spinning reels and Falcon spinning rods, tackle, cooler with ice, and saltwater fishing licenses.
January - March is usually cool with strong winds. The weather will dictate where and if we can fish.
April - June is usually very pleasant, but this is our rainy season.
July - September is hot and humid. Temperatures are in the mid-90s every day, but it can be 75 to 80 degrees at sunrise.
October - December is very pleasant. Cool fronts will bring in cool, dry air.
I try to start the day around sunrise or shortly after. Our meeting place will depend on where we fish. We usually have light winds in the morning and a sea breeze in the afternoon that can test your casting skill.
January – March:
I target the coastal waters of Alabama and rivers that feed into Mobile Bay for redfish. Bull reds school in the Gulf near the passes.
April – June:
I target the eastern shore of Mobile Bay for speckled trout and redfish.
July – September:
I target the Mobile-Tensaw Delta for specks, reds, and flounder. Schools of jacks and reds can be found in the bay. King mackerel, jacks, and bonito can be found along the beaches offshore.
October – December:
I target the Mobile-Tensaw Delta for specks and reds.
Drinks, snacks, lunch, your favorite rods and reels, sunscreen, hat, long-sleeved shirt, camera, rain gear, etc. You will have to provide your freshwater fishing license if needed. Please check with me before you purchase one.
