So we are looking to take a family vacation to the Dauphin Island. Golf Shores of Alabama. This will be more of a family vacation then a fishing trip. We will be staying at a condo on the beach. My plan is to take my eight weight fly rod and fish the surf early in the morning before sun up each day and later in the evenings on occasion.
From what I understand there is potential to sight for snook in the surf. I'll likely fish the surf but if you know of any other areas or recommendations on this I'd appreciate advice!
I am no expert, but grew up right down the road. I just started fly fishing this spring, but would say don't ignore the north side. As a kid, we caught more fish on the bay side or intercoastal waterway than the surf (Pensacola). I was not a big fisherman, just went a few times, but that's what I recall.
