Can someone tell me if the MP-265 rig is sitting over natural hard bottom? It appears to be about 55 nM's from Dauphin Island. It looks like there's a good rip, temp, and color break right around there right now. Has anyone had success at MP-265? I'd like to fish that rig this spring/summer and I'd love to have a rig that I could troll as well as drop to hard bottom for some grouper (http://www.rodnreel.com/gulffish/gulffish.asp?SEARCHTERM=grouper&MODE=TERM_SEARCH), etc... Thanks for your advice!

Yes, it's still there.
Enclosed are shots of the water color, water temps - looks like a better bet may be just inshore of the Pinnacles where you have a more-defined water color change dovetailing with a 4 degree temp break.
Good luck and give us a report!

Tom,I do like your produce service,but the expence for some of us that doesn't get a chance to fish often is hard to justify the cost of your service.Would there be a way to get your service for say X amount of down loads per year?I am sure there are alot of people that are in the same boat as me and I am sure you would have alot more people looking into your service.

I agree with prock. IU really only get to go out to the floaters twice a year and would love to be able to buy a few logins. Say maybe 6 for $50 or something like that. I do love the service hiltons offers but can't justify the 200 dollars a year for 1 or 2 trips out to bluewater.

We have caught some nice Warsaw and scamp there it's in about 300'. Weve picked up a wahoo or two maybe had a pointy fish come up. Blackfin usualy yellowfin occassionally. Tons of Aj's. Troll out to the west and follow the chain of fixed rigs along that particular bathy...keep your bottom machine on trolling between rigs.

Thanks Tom! Those shots are great. I plan to get out there when this weather calms down. I just don't want to chance it in 3-5' seas in a 23' boat. I'll certainly be posting this spring/summer!
