Default Blacktips in the bays

Anybody drift in the bays for black tips? If yes how many rods? I always shark fish with 3 rods but in water not as deep would 2 work best or just 1?

Over in Mobile Bay, I have had better luck on Blacktips anchored and chumming with pogies. Two rods with balloons, and 2 rods, staggered distance, on the bottom. We have caught a number of blacktips, plus big Crevalles and every year we have a tarpon sighting.

Thanks for the info! New to the area. I shark fished the north east avidly. I see some stuff is the same and other things are a total relearn. Making it a lot of fun!

I am not sure if the fishery is much different over your way but just east of you I will see them and spinners crashing bait in the mornings. I do not typically specifically fish for them but once they get consistent, I will go back in the areas and locate them and then pitch baits back in there area.

What Weatherman said. If you can find the pogy schools, there's no better place to fish. Clip the tail off a pogy, live or dead and he won't be around long.

We've caught some big bull sharks doing the same. Balloon and a loooong leader so you don't get tail whipped. Baits either Spanish Mack's. Pogies or white trout or skip Jack. Really just what ever we can get.
