I have seen them everywhere from east bay, escambia bay, and santa rosa sound. Usually this time of year most bayous have a good concentration of them. I caught all I wanted on saturday near the I-10 bridge but usually seem them every morning going across garcon bridge as well.

I was at the pier in orange beach, and from the beach all the way too the end of the fishing pier you can look down and see millions of bait fish. Most prob blue runner, 8 inch or so. If you threw a cast net, you would need a crane to pull it up.

I netted about 100lbs last week in one throw at the little bridge at Navarre Beach. There are schools everywhere. You just have to wait on them to come through the bridge.
