Live crokers, then you won't have to deal with as many catfish.

I catch my crokers right there by the launch. There is a reef marked with pilings just to the west. If you don't have a net Sibiki tipped with shrimp will do the trick.

Thank you Kevdog540 I wanted to ask you where you caught your crokers at so thank you Sir for your help, this is hopefully going to be a great turnout. I will let you know how we do. I wonder what those pilings was when the wife and I scouted out Fort Morgan last week, I seen boats pull up tie off and then leave out. I said to my self they must be catching bait fish there. And you have proven my thought.

Get between the red channel marker and the bar and drift out try to stay in about 10-15 feet of water. Live croaker will do the trick and keep an eye out because the sharks are everywhere!!!

Definitely croaker. We use a carolina type rig with a 4 ft leader. We typically start drift north of the bar in 30 ft of water and drift up the bar into shallower water. Strong, outgoing tide essential. Watch the other boats. It is a blast when they are feeding . Good luck

And be careful. The mobile pass can change from nice to very dangerous real quick.

Chapman5011 that what I have been told, the wife is a little shaky now about going, she said if its going to be ruff she don't want to have our 5 year old grandson out there with us. So I might have to change plans for now, until I go out and get comfortable with it, then take them out.

Thank you everyone for your input and advice, this forum is the best!
