The Dixie Bar just off of Fort Morgan is a famous spot for catching bull reds, sharks, and big jacks, best on a falling out low tide, not at the low tide but as it is falling out and draining bait out of the bay. Admittedly it is regarded as a boat fishing spot and depending on what week in August you are there, you might see us out there is a yellow Sea Hunt. But I found an article online once about people surf fishing it, using big 6000, 8000, or bigger spinning rods to get out as deep as possible. You might be able to find that article or some resources there googling.
If you can, some charter boats do trolling trips near shore and catch a bunch of Spanish Mackerel, which is a very fun trip.
Best of luck to you and have a great trip!
