Thanks. I know if I were out there without power I would hope someone would do the same for me. Even had another boat, larger than ours, swing by as we were towing them in and made sure we had everything under control. It's good to know there's guys that look out for each other out there.

As far as depth, we have stayed between 500-700'. There hasn't been a real rhyme or reason that I have figured out to the areas where we've got bites. Maybe I have all the information but the light bulb just hasn't come on yet? We have caught one deep and got no other bites there, then work in as we drift north and pick up another a few miles away. It seems that these fish don't stick to a 25' or even 50' depth range on the same day, but I'm still very green with this stuff. It's been more like hunting than anything else so far, and I think that's what i like so much about it. No doubt that they're out there beyond 700' but I don't have weights that big...yet

What size weights are you using? Just trying to get setup and learning as much as I can to try my hand.

With the current we have out of Port I was using 8lb and 10lb. The 10lb definitely helps hold the line more vertical, for obvious reasons, and maintain better feel on the bottom.

A few people have asked about the tiles recently. Would you guys be interested if I made a couple videos about the rigs I use, techniques, and boat control as we drop?

Anyone know what type of research this thing is conducting? Prob 10ish miles from the port, tethered to the bottom and covered in solar panels. It said do not approach so we immediately approached and saw some smaller fish circling underneath.

It doesn't look identical but pretty similar to what the guys were talking about a little further south.

I saw one two weeks ago in about 90ft between 8a and Pelican. At first, I thought it was the most hardcore SUP guy in the world.

Those are the devices that tell NOAA the red snapper are endangered.

We've been striking out lately staying on the west side of stream when trolling out of Sebastian. Are you guys having better luck on the other side? Targeting the usual pelagics. Thanks guys

From this weeks (24/18) LNM
ATLANTIC OCEAN - FLORIDA - CAPE CANAVERAL: TESTING OFFSHORE REMOTELY OPERATED VEHICLES
The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab will be testing seven remotely operated vehicles off the eastern Florida coast between 31 May and 11 July 2018. The vehicles are low-profile wave gliders, approximately 10 foot by 2 foot, with four 2-foot tall antennas, one with an orange flag and displaying a solid white light at night. Connected to the wave glider is a submerged craft approximately 25 feet below the water surface and directly below the wave glider. One of the wave gliders will also have a tow body approximately 6 inches in diameter and 4.5 feet long which is towed 16 feet behind the submerged craft.
The remotely operated vehicles will be deployed from Port Canaveral on 31 May and transit for approximately twelve days at 1-2 knots along the following course: 28.39/-80.53, 27.86/-80.08, 28.91/-79.67, 29.05/-79.36 and 28.83/-77.00. Upon reaching 28.83/-77.00, on approximately 12 June, the wave gliders will operate in a box bounded by 28.50 to the south, 29.50 to the north, -77.00 to the west and -
76.00 to the east until approximately 27 June at which time it will begin a transit back to Port Canaveral, FL along a rough track of 28.83/-77.00, 27.78/-78.79, 27.75/-79.26, 29.7/-80.20, 29.75/-80.24, 28.48/-80.39 and 28.39/-80.53 where they will be recovered on approximately 11 July. Pilots of the wave glider can be reached via Iridium at 011 8816-2241-4709 or commercial at (240) 228-0352. Mariners are to avoid close
proximity, or any other interference of these remotely operated vehicles.

Has anyone attempted to get a reason as to why we don't have any FADs yet ? They seem to be such a hit in other countries. Of course I never hear of the negatives but would love to get some more info on them in our waters if anyone is educated on it.
