Consider the source. If they were easy, why was he fishing under the bridge, which is essentially in the bay.
Nothing's at the jetties, as the rocks are protection and as soon as a fish is hooked he runs for the rocks. Lots of fish lost that way. But then sometimes when everything's right it is easy. Sharks, mackerel, jacks, grouper, etc.
Florence Alabama, pretty town, at least for someone visiting. Quite different from here.
Funny Story, I saw that on Panhandle Pier Fishing someone had a video from her 30 gallon tank. I sent her a link to this thread so she could view it. Funny thing was, I just noticed I posted on this thread in 2010 and havent been back since haha. What groupers are hanging out near the jetties? I was going to go last year but decided to hit up the county pier instead. You have family in Florence? Pretty town, I like it. Grandfather works for Rick Hendrick (Nascar owner, also owns car dealerships and other car related businesses) and GM, and is considering moving to PCB because he does most of his business in the area. If he does I will be down all the time.
