Default Ft. Morgan Rigs 5-22-11

Took the new boat offshore for the first time today. Me and two of my buddies hit some rigs off of Fort Morgan about 13 miles out. Had no trouble finding the red snapper, but couldn't get any amberjacks to hit anything. Between the three of us, we probably boated 20 snapper over two and a half hours. Water was rough coming around the end of Fort Morgan but after a few miles turned into rolling 2-3's which wasn't great for a 21' boat but we had been itching for a while to go. Shouldn't have any trouble loading up after the season starts.

you are gonna need to go a bit farther for ajs south of ft. morgan, but there are some fine wrecks, reefs and such in that general area you were in that hold - grouper, snapper, kings as such.

I didn't realize you could hit 100ft of water from Fort Morgan that close. Is there any way to find the GPS of those rigs or just head out there and go to them by sight?

We were in 50' of water at the Triple Rig. A buddy of mine on the boat knows all of the rigs and we basically went there by sight. No numbers needed. They are immediately off the coast and then once you pass the first set, you will see more farther out. Just keep bumping along.

I may try this rig hopping next week. Would you guys keep going due south rig after rig or would you go south east in order to find deeper water quicker?
