Its been 5-6 years since I fished there but there used to be a launch pad on our immediate right as soon as you come off of the bridge. I know that the hurricane tore it up but I don't know if anyone reopened it or not. I quit fooling with the Island because the wind was so much of a factor. But we have gotten some nice fish around the bridge and Little Dauphin Island. Good Luck!!!

The launch on the right just over the bridge is gated up for condo owners,best bet is Billy Goat Hole,take a left at the water tower and its at the end on the left.Wind is a factor.Gig a few around Little Dauphin and Sand Island every year.Haven't buried the five prong this year yet,but hope to soon.

There are 2 ramps at the east end of DI. If you have a bigger boat the first one "billy goat hole" next to the Ferry is the best, but if your boat is a little smaller go on past to "little billy goat hole". It doesn't seem to be as crowded and better parking (if there is such a thing).
