Default Next week hitting the AR's

Looking like next week may be somewhat decent for some nearshore bottom fishing the AR's. Would anything decent be around in the 50ft depth range or would I have to go deeper?

Where?
ARs up off Oregon Inlet are going to be far different than ARs down off Hilton Head

If you can try deeper then you will catch bigger BSBs but if you are after togs and sheepshead shallower will be fine

Thank you! I would really like BSB. Closer to a 100' then?

While you're bottom bouncing, live line out something, maybe on a balloon rig. Unless you're using an 80w or bigger, you may well have to respond the reel when you get home.

What species are they catching at the AR's further north? And is it that way in the warmer months.

Made it out today and crushed the BSB. Went out to about 82ft of water and only stayed in that spot. Other than lizards, threw back very few small ones. 3 guys got their limit in no time.
