Like I said in the reply to your other posts. Launch at either Cotton Bayou or Boggy Point Ramp. If you have never launched or recovered in swift moving current I recommend Cotton Bayou. I also said to go talk to your local tackle stores in Orange Beach, scratch the Top Gun guys, they arent much into talking, go to J&M Tackle and speak to Ralph, Carson, Gumbo, or Terry and they will all be very happy to talk to answer any and all questions. Thats what they get paid for. Ralph and Carson are both Licensed Charter Captains that fish our waters several times a week. As far as getting to Pcola Bay from Orange Beach, it takes around 20-45 minutes depending on conditions, speed, and boat traffic.
