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.
Great stuff my man! What size weight are you using for the eyes? I am unfamiliar with much saltwater fishing, but can you eat ladyfish?
