Gulf Weather looking good for this weekend
 
As of right now it looks like all the buoy's are forecasting under 2ft actually around 0.4 to 1.2 ft should be pretty flat out their this weekend.

Planning to make some runs out and try to put the first fish in the new boat finally.

Did you look at the radar this morning and the T-storm forecast.

What app are you looking at for t-storms? I see scattered storms in the Gulf now. Planning a run offshore tomorrow.

I use Radar Scope on my phone.
If you do the pro option it's like 10 bucks a year. That enables real time Lightening data that can be very useful. It also will give you storm velocities and directional arrows for movement. Very Handy tool. Just looked and there is weather out there now and the one off Sarasota has fire in it.

Forecast is iffy for the next 2 days with this southerly flow. Rain chance are around 60% with T-storms sliding up the coast. Very little wind though. Pattern calls for a normal east wind starting this weekend. I have a trip Friday so I am watching the pattern.

Planning a trip for Friday night into Sat.

You should have good weather I think. Just watch that we don't get into those west moving storms late in the day.

It's showing pretty much no wind for the near future in the coming week. My buddies have been crushing the mango's at night.

If I'm out there, The storms are guaranteed to be moving west. Every fkn time!

Osprey 25 08-05-2020 10:54 AM

Thanks for the info. Will be hitting some spots from 125' to 140' targeting grouper and snapper. Any suggestions on working through the ARS to get to targeted species?

Lemonbayboating 08-05-2020 04:41 PM

Watching it as well I think we should be good this weekend plan to leave the dock 0 dark 30 Saturday morning and be back in with limit by noon or 1pm LOL!! I'll see if that works usually means back about 6pm

Right now its dark skies and storms rolling in over the canal.

Left Coast Retriever 08-06-2020 05:29 AM

Going tomorrow before daylight if the gulf is not too hot with lightning, looked a bit iffy this morning.

20biminitwist 08-06-2020 05:37 AM

Going to catch bait in a little bit and are planning a run to the NW tomorrow up off Bayport. Maybe, it's ugly up that way this morning.

Reelsmooth20 08-06-2020 05:46 PM

Heading out of Venice Saturday morning looking for snappers and grouper.

Lemonbayboating 08-07-2020 03:39 AM

I'll be on channel 68 and 16 will be heading out of boca grande pass as the sun is coming up. Heading due SW roughly searching for grouper and snapper as well. May hear me call for radio check on 68 vessel name Waves of Light.

Chartering day or personnel fishing day?

critt77matt 08-07-2020 04:24 AM

I look for the rigs off ms and al to have 20 plus boats each. I donít like it slick, 1í-2í is generally better fishing for me. I thought about Running around and trying Some new spots.

stay hydrated its going to be HOT!

Lemonbayboating 08-07-2020 04:56 AM

yes going to be hotter than hell, plan to hopefully get out early and back early.

DEBTICATED 08-07-2020 12:09 PM

Left Coast Retriever 08-07-2020 05:13 PM

boats in water rods all rigged ready for take off at sunrise

nice catch left coast

fishin mogul 08-08-2020 01:12 AM

Nice haul LC, and only 30+- miles. Light on fuel and heavy on meat is a good day. Heading out of Venice inlet in a couple hours. Buoys showing a little extra breeze than I’d hoped, but it may lay down. No fire in the sky is a good start.

Lemonbayboating 08-08-2020 02:17 AM

Having coffee here breeze still looking ok with wind finder showing less than foot and 5kts or less. Little heat lightning over the harbor over the Punta Gorda Cape coral area but weather radar looks good. Loading up shortly and heading out as soon as can. Will be heading to first hole at about 20 miles out and hopefully can limit there. Have a buddy meeting me there in his boat so good luck to all tight lines and be safe. Will have radio on 68

Lemonbayboating 08-08-2020 02:20 AM

SW of Tampa Bay Buoy showing 4kts to 9kts not increasing to 10 until after 8pm supposedly. This is probably the closest buoy to Venice Fl

20biminitwist 08-08-2020 05:48 AM

The weather and seas were fine yesterday. The fishing sucked and it was hotter than hell.

Made the mistake of going NW up off Bayport 50 to 60 feet. Short gags little RG and a handful of decent mango's. The grunts were a PITA mango fishing. Probably caught 100.

halfwaythere 08-08-2020 10:40 AM

While I love to boat, these few months are just too TFH. I was out last week in the Gulf and there was no wind, the water is 88 and I am not liking it. Weather has been unpredictable lately. Storms are unbelievably strong when they come through. Finally these weekend we are back to a semi normal wind direction/late afternoon shower pattern.

Lemonbayboating 08-08-2020 05:52 PM

Well it was diffentitly hot as hell today. Left out just before sunrise ran across

the harbor and out of Boca Grande. Heading SW to cpl holes that were out at 20miles. My Buddy pulled up in his Epic Bay boat just as we arrived. He was going to meet us as he doesn't go out often that far unless me or another person are out and forcast is flat.

So put him on some numbers he fished within 200ft of us all day we were in about 70-80ft water. Both boats picked up multiple short fish in the RG, lots of Lanes some porgies and a dang pesky shark that kept circiling the boats lol.

He ended up boating 4 nice keeper RG out of the 3 guys they had on board.

Wife and I ended up keeping 3 nice RG

We all headed off the water about 1pm as we had to be back for a 4pm dinner

Watching the lightning and wind now over the canal

Hoping to head back out in the morning winds look ok and about 10-20% chance of rain play it by ear.

fishin mogul 08-09-2020 12:05 PM

We got out a little deeper to around 180'. Picked up 5 nice BFT' and a smallish wahoo. Couldn't bottom fish out there without dragging ARS' up. Gave up on it and just spent the day trolling. At least we had a 10 mph breeze all day. Seas sucked coming in with a solid 2-3 north swell. We did mange to get in before the deluge of lightning and rain hit up here.

DEBTICATED 08-09-2020 12:17 PM

Fished 100 ft west of PAG left 6 pm Friday. Was gonna head for the peaks at 3 am but was tired. Had a boat roll on my spot at midnight. Thought was FWC. Dickheads. Left and was making my way but where I wanted to troll was 70 miles. Wasnít up for the task. Mangos were funny had all kinds of bait and squid in my lights. Had every bait possible but only thing mangos wanted was the live sardines underneath the boat. We were able to sabiki them and toss back down live. They didnít want dead cut in half etc. they wanted live ones. Was home by noon sat with minimal fuel burned.

Nothing tightens my pucker worse than a boat rolling in on me in the middle of the night!
Sucks the fish were not cooperating. Lately at night we have been spending more time netting and sabiking those squid. They eat better than anything in the Gulf in my opinion. I also catch 90 % of my BFT at night on them.

EricF 08-09-2020 03:01 PM

Trip was a little slow for us Friday night, but we scratches out an OK box of a dozen or so mangos, few lanes, some throwback ARS.

Started slow with some Atlantic spotted dolphin following us around eating bioluminescent squid as they ran out from under the boat, enough squid to almost black out the sounder, followed us around for an hour or so. Coonskin cap helped turn the tide after changing locations. 30 miles out so didn't run deep this time around. We had a boat roll up on us Saturday at a public spot, 20' away from us, thought they wanted to raft up. Asked if we were leaving, "We are now!"

Nice work guys.

Went back out today to about 20 miles out boated two keeper grouper lots of lanes

when I was taking boat from my dock to the boat ramp, One hell of a storm blew threw charlotte harbor blowing so hard sand was flying everywhere was a mess thanks to guy that gave me a hand.

Only **** up of the day was leaving an 8ft VHF antenna up during all that and hearing it hit the first tree damit. Bent the mount bracket took pcs of the top of the antenna off and split the top so guess I need to find a bracket and antenna for my 2 week old boat first **** up lol.

Burned some gas and found the meat Friday out of PAG.https://cimg4.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.the...96fa2496f.jpeg

Lemonbayboating 08-10-2020 04:05 AM

Very nice haul Dcgator I haven't found any gags out of boca yet probably need to go out further this time of year.

Sweetwater500 08-10-2020 07:06 AM

Looks like something big so-called one of your mangoes. I’ve got 260 TV love those boats. Leave some for seed.

Sweetwater500 08-10-2020 07:07 AM

Sorry meant scaled one of your mangos. Goliath?

kpaulhus 08-10-2020 03:17 PM

Saturday was awesome offshore. Sunday we drove up to Bayport and I went free diving my first time. Fish are fast and the current is stronger than I thought it would be but it was a fun learning day.
