The riches of the Gulf of Mexico help make our area a prime spot for sport fishing. Offshore waters are filled with tuna and marlin, and bays also offer great fishing opportunities. Inland lakes and rivers are perfect for both those looking to catch catfish or bass, and the woodlands along the coast harbor a number of excellent hunting reserves.
Open year round, the Dauphin Island Fishing Pier extends 850 feet into the water and holds stands that sell food, cold drinks and tackle. A gorgeous spot to spend a day fishing, the pier offers the opportunity to catch red trout, flounder and even some species of shark!
