Still chilly, but the fishing is great all along the lower delta rivers (e.g. tensaw river, raft river, spanish/mobile rivers, chickasaw creek) and well into the Mobile Bay rivers (e.g. dog river, fowl river, industrial canal). Remember to fish deep 8-15+ft and slow. If you've got electronics, trolling around looking for isolated bait balls is a good way to find them. Live shrimp is best, otherwise shad imitators (e.g. jigs, crankbaits, mirrolures, rattle-traps) are doing good too. Also, I'm willing to bet night fishing dock-lights in dog river and industrial canal is fire right now.
