Mobile Bay Area Fishing Spots

Dog River

Located on the west side of Mobile Bay, Dog River creeks and watersheds run all through the city of Mobile. Speckled trout and redfish can be caught around the main river almost all year, with the exception of the hotter summer months. Bass and bream fishing are great in the creeks and bayous. Points and creek mouths off the main river are great starting points for bass and redfish.

East Fowl River

East Fowl River is the southern-most river off the west bank of Mobile Bay. Speckled trout and redfish can be caught here year-round, but the fall and winter months are especially good. Further up the northern arm is good bass fishing and even further north bream fishing.

Game Wardens Ditch

Game Wardens Ditch is located right off the Blakeley River just a short distance north of Scotts Landing. This is the small canal that runs behind Five Rivers Delta Center. All through here and up Duck Skiff Pass is good bass fishing during fall and early winter months. In particular the mouth and the point where the canal turns north are great areas to fish.

Halls Mill Creek

This is another tributary of Dog River, north of the mouth of Rabbit Creek. At the mouth of this creek is a good place for redfish and speckled trout with a lot of shell flats and docs to fish. Water clarity gets better the further you run up the creek. There are great bream and crappie fishing spots further up in the head of the creek, and bass fishing is good all over. Fish deeper in the winter/summer and shallower in the fall/spring.

Murder Point Creek

Bayou creek fishing spot south of fowl river bay and murder point. A great spot for speckled trout fishing in the fall and winter months. Be careful approaching the mouth of the creek, its VERY shallow.

Rabbit Creek

A tributary of Dog River, Rabbit Creek runs off the west side of the largest part of the river. This creek is spring fed, so the farther you run towards it's head, the clearer the water gets. Great bass, bream, and red fishing all through this creek. I have never targeted speckled trout in here, but during the colder months you can bet your bottom dollar they're present.

Rattlesnake Bayou

This bayou runs east off of Rabbit Creek, a tributary of Dog River. Water clarity through here is usually more stained and is generally shallower than Rabbit Creek. The bass and bream fishing throughout this bayou is great. It gets extra grassy in the warmer months, but fishing those grass edges can be extremely productive. Redfish and specks are less common through here.
