FYI- I'd stick to inshore fishing, with 3-4 ft seas all weekend and a small craft advisory- it would be rough, to say the least, if not near dangerous if they were to build the least bit higher than that.
Wait until a more favorable weekend and target some solid structure between 8-15 miles out or so for AmberJack. Just remember, those AJ prefer cleaner waters- so if you are running out of Mobile Bay and the water you are fishing is muddy- you'll have a hard time finding them.
By the way- did you get your electronics worked out??

yes I waitout for more favorable conditions.

so this time of year it's usalley South winds?

I thought South winds sends fishermen to the Northside of the Dauphin Island. North winds sends fishermen anywhere in Gulf.

I do have the front NAVs working still need vhs radio.
