WHERE WE FISH
Several rivers empty into Mobile Bay from both the East and West and are home to many species of fish. On the East side is Fish River. On the West side are Dog River and Fowl River.
Almost in the center of Mobile Bay is Gaillard Island, a spoils island, bird sanctuary created from sediment from dredging of the Mobile Ship Channel. Mobile bay is also dotted by many man-made reefs built using discarded concrete construction debris, bridge structures, power poles, and broken pipe among other materials.
At the South end of Mobile Bay there are gas platforms and oyster reefs that hold many species of fish.
At the South end of Mobile Bay and to the West is the Mississippi Sound which is located between the South shore of Mobile County and the North shore of Dauphin Island, The Mississippi Sound is home to many bays, inlets, flats and bayous that may be accessed from Bayou La Batre or Dauphin Island.
