I throw a 5lb weight on almost every time. Very rarely do I need more and I never "need" less.

Depending on the current of course, is the general rule 1 lbs for every 100 ft?

Hey Chris do you deep drop to the south out of orange beach or do you go to the se? I will be running south Friday and want to try something new. I figured it wouldn't matter as long as you drop off the edge.

No doubt that the previous poster knows how to find and catch stud Tilefish. Great catch and I tip my hat to you.
