Podcast Episode 150: Jubilee: A Fisherman’s Dream Come True

Sep 13, 2014 | Podcasts

In The Loop with Andy Andrews, hosted by David Loy


On this week’s episode, I talk about a very unusual summer event that occurs a few times a year on the shore of Mobile Bay.

Something very unique happened earlier this week while at a book signing in Fairhope, Alabama. 

  • There is a 15-mile stretch on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay.
  • In the late summer on a still night between two and five in the morning, fish pile up on the shore for several hundred yards.
  • I’m talking thousands. Flounder, Whiting, Mullet, Shrimp, and more.
  • This is only one place in the world this happens and it is called a “Jubilee.”


I am shocked by how many people read The Noticer Returns and think “Jubilee” is something I made up.

  • This has been going on for centuries.
  • Years ago they had bells on the porches of the houses along the bay to let the community know when the phenomenon was occurring.
  • The fish are almost stunned or asleep. It will last for an hour or two and then they’ll wake up and swim back into the gulf.
  • People will fill their ice chests and have fish for a year.


It’s an odd thing in the world where someone’s influence or money can buy what whatever they want.

  • You got enough money or influence and you could sit down with the president for dinner or have Kenny Chesney play a show in your backyard.
  • There is not a single way you could ever reserve a time to go see a Jubilee.
  • It is such a fascinating thing, but it kills me because I’ve never seen one.


If you haven’t read The Noticer Returns and want to hear an amazing story involving a jubilee and how it impacted the lives of several people, The Noticer Returns
