    Can't wait to see it. I'll be hitting a local spot here in NY, caught a few 18"ers last time out hope to gain a little on those this trip.

    Randy, looking forward to your post. We were down that way a month or so ago and found that we could catch a few skipjack just up from the walking bridge pylon that was closest to the bank. Good luck!!!

    If there's a current running through the cut in the section dividing the discharge canal and the main river, that can be a good spot for skippies.
