Default Gulf Shores/West Pass report 2/14/09

Met my buddy Toney at the beach just west of west pass in Gulf shores today around 2 pm. I was mainly going to try out my new 10ft penn power stick from bass pro. awesome rod for the money. will get a 2oz weight out there a mile! First cast and 2 seconds later a huge ray of some sort was heading to Cuba with my shrimp. finally stopped him and got him to the beach. cut the line and let his ugly butt go. after that it was a mixed bag. several whiting, 5 or 6 sea skates, one pompano and as we were packing up to head home my rod doubled over and 10 minutes later we beached a 25 to 30 pound red drum. i wish i brought my camera.:banghead... Revived him and watched him swim off. I'm going again tomorrow and i'm bringing the camera!:letsdrink

Lots of action! I like it. Thanks for filling us in.

Is west pass at Ft. Morgan, Mobile Bay?

I see big rays all the time, but I've never caught one. Was it a String Ray or Manta? How big?

No. West pass is east of ft morgan on west beach blvd in gulf shores. if your heading west on the beach road coming from perdido, you'll go thru orange beach and gulf shores, past 59 they you'll come to a little bricge called callaway bridge. we were fishing gulf side about a mile past there. The ray was just a big old Ray. not a manta. havent seen one of those around here. I'm gonna head out there in an hour or two. lets see if they're still there.:letsdrink
