Big Creek Lake, also called Converse Reservoir, is a 3,600-acre reservoir in west Mobile County which serves as the public water supply for the Mobile metropolitan area. This reservoir was formed by impounding Big Creek, which flows into the Escatawpa River drainage.
Bass and crappie fishing have been reported to be the best in recent years especially during the spring, following a drought in 2007. During the spring, bass are easily caught from the shallow grass beds on soft plastics, spinner baits, and top water baits and crappie are caught off the woody debris with live minnows or jigs. This lake has become more popular to bass anglers as tournament activity has increased in recent years.
