Was down out of Locklies 2 weeks ago, loaded up on big croaker, kept about 30 for eatin when we got home. Will be going down there again the 11th. Did you charter a boat or bring your own? We will be in a 19ft Carolina SKiff

took my own they charge 7.00 i think it was to put in there but its well worth it cause hell the big waters right there
plank caster when ya go do ya fish on th other side chanel this side ?
Normally when I go the first thing I do is run out between the bridge and the first daylight channel marker on the Locklies side and look for 22-28 feet of water and start my drift there. This is what I do the day I arrive and dont have a whole lot of time before getting back to the motel, dinner etc. When I get a full day I run downriver either to the Silo's or to the Cell Phone Tower and use my depthfinder to look for drop offs or schools of fish. Last time I was down I found the big croaker right in the middle of the channel across from the tower in 55 feet of water. On Locklies website, lockliesmarina.com there is a very basic map of a few of the fishing spots. This will give you a general idea of where to head and from there you can use your depthfinder. If nothing else keep an eye on the charter boats. They will just about always know where to catch em but make sure to keep a polite distance as this is how they earn a living. What kind of boat do you have? Hope this helped
