Surrounded by thousands of reefs, endless backwaters, and vibrant bays, the amount of habitat holding fish is incredible. Fort Morgan has plenty of fishing spots for a variety of fish which makes it the best place to find your perfect trip.

The vast network of water connected to mobile Bay includes endless flats, bays, and bayous, that are perfect for catching massive redfish, trout, and many other inshore species.
Big bull redfish are caught most commonly in the fall while the sheepshead bite picks up in the winter when they form tight groups.
