I don't fish in Alabama much in Feb since I live in Utah but my cousin, who lives in Elkmont, Al said he was going to start fishing for crappie toward the end of the month. I know bass can be caught almost every month of the year but I think they are tough to catch in the winter. You might do better fishing in deeper water this time of the year.
Check out our bass fishing board for better info than I can give you.
