We were bummed that we missed the opportunity to have some of what we had heard was the best catfish on the waterway. It was a pleasant experience and at least now we can say “we’ve been there and almost done that”.
As much fun as we have had on our first leg of our adventure, we were excited about pulling out early the next morning. We were ready to spend our last night at a peaceful anchorage called Alabama Cut off, Our last anchorage on the waterway before getting to Mobile.
