Re: Gulf Shores
I had a lot of fun last summer catching ladyfish in the surf. Used a size 6 clouser on an 8wt. Caught a few on chartreuse/white and after I lost all of those I switched to a tan/white and they went nuts over it.
I only fished early. 5am to 7 or so. Covered an area right in front of the condo, maybe 300 yards. Just watch for the schools to move through and it's pretty easy. Make sure you have a good leader. Those ladyfish will cut it up.
I will be out around Ft. Morgan the same week and plan on being out there every morning.
