With the boat being down and this wonderful weather lately, it looks like Sunday is a go finally. But i'm having trouble deciding which way to run. I want to break out of fishing our usual spots, the edge, timberholes, Chevron, a few private numbers and several others. I would like to make the run west toward the Tanks and fish the Alabama numbers but iv'e never been that direction.

Half of me says we need fish in the freezer stay with what you know, the other half says give it a go and run west you may find a new hole.

How is fishing all those pyramids and tanks in AL? Are they spaced close enough to drift between them to the next one? Do they get hit harder than other places, looks like a ton of spots so i cant imagine all of them get hit regularly?

No. They are not close enough to drift unless there is two dumped right by each other. Usually spaced apart up to a mile. But you can hit one and run to the next. Black snappers love the tanks and mainly snapper on both. May find a grouper on either also. But not the most common. Look at a chart and plan your trip hitting them.

put an E on one side of a quarter and a W on the other with a magic marker. if you find yourself flipping more than once you already knew the answer. I used to have to resort to this method during cobia season. and yes I flipped more than once a lot.

There are more pyramids than tanks, but both hold fish well. At this time of the season, fish the deepest structures as they will probably have felt the least pressure. The tanks are much easier to hover over as they are generally bigger reefs and hold some nice fish. C'mon over and take advantage of all these reefs have to offer. They are spaced apart by a mile so drifting between is tough. Find one that is holding fish and drop an anchor. You'll probably not be in water deeper than 150-200'. Tight Lines!

East, West, South..... the water quality is- meh! Stick to some solid structure, the farther offshore, the better you will probably do. We've had a saying lately, go at least 20 miles before considering a fishing spot! LOL
If you have the latest Alabama public numbers from the Outdoor Alabama website- look for some of the "super pyramids". We did pretty good on a couple that were stacked kinda close to each other. Featured on our last video.
