Water was really high in OBA this evening on Bayou St John. Bad waves and surge. Old river was okay wave wise with lots of docks under water.

I am on ono in a canal, and the water is up to the bottom of my dock. Hope it doesnít rise a lot more. Seems up 3-4 feet.

positive note is there are Atleast 50 redfish hanging out that are not normally there, and they are biting!

i donít know whether to be mad at you for being there fishing, or happy that there is, at least, some good for the people down there. I was so depressed at not leaving today, I just stood out in my front yard throwing a cast net in the grass in the dark.

well I hope you do get to come down, should know in a few days if itís safe. Will tell you atleast in my neighborhood 95% of people are staying, so would assume most of the others are Ie people will be here and open if you can get down. If you can get down here I am guessing the fishing will be great with no pressure. You are making the right call waiting though, you would be stuck in a hotel/house more than likely. No way I would be out there right now. Granted you could always come to my dock ha.

Again, I know there are far more important things than my vacation/fishing trip. But, we have two weeks planned and were going to continue scoping out a place to buy in OBA as a personal use vacation/rental property while we are down.

So, even with all this rain, you don't think the bays will be washed out with freshwater and the fishing will be horrible? Even with minimal, or no damage, I thought this storm stalling and all the rain would kill the bay fishing for weeks. I know the offshore bite should be good after a storm, but I'm mainly inshore, since we have 3 smaller kids on the boat with us.

on moving here, canít tell you enough how awesome this place is. We kinda moved here on a whim this May, were actually going to Pensacola to start a a medical clinic, and got a good deal in OBA. Now I doubt we will ever leave.

On the bay, I do think it will get washed out. I was thinking offshore. I will tell you though that there is a good reef about 3 miles out we always hook up on, and I feel very comfortable taking my bay boat out to.

I had read that the first few days after the storm that the bay fishing is really good from all the water pushed in vs the water flowing in. Still new to it, and my first hurricane.

I'd definitely take them 2-3 miles out on a calm day. We cruise like that all the time. I've just had trouble locating the nearshore reefs. I'm comfortable in the bays, but getting out in open water is something I'm new at and working on.

And if there isn't damage and we need to stay out of the way, I'm prepared to be there the day after the storm clears out. Even driving from Georgia, I'll drive through the rain on the way down. But, the boat is hooked up and ready to roll.

As for moving, we would own it as a vacation home and rent it out when we aren't there. So, we won't live there full time. I run an independent investment management and financial planning business in North Georgia. Can't start over by moving. But, I'm hoping I can add a few clients down there over time, so I can justify spending more time down there.

I use to own my own advisory practice. Thought I would never leave, but here I am. Granted I traded oil mainly and it cratered my book during covid. I was thinking of having an office here and back in AR, travel back and forth and ended up just pulling the plug for a new life. Granted my fiancťe is a speciality doc, and we have the opportunity to open a medical practice here so I had a good back up plan.

The reef I am talking about is on the public map, itís a big spot a little left of the pass and out. It definitely gets pressure, but we always pull some type of snapper off of it. I have gotten into shark fishing, and itís great for that. Probably 10-20 minutes out, and easy to get back if things get nasty. My fiancťe is getting a lot more comfortable on a boat, but it has been good to get her sea legs, but be able to bail when itís too much.

I am primarily fee based advisory services. I've built a good business with clients I love near Athens, GA, where my wife and I both went to college. So, we love it here. But, over the past few years OBA has stolen a piece of our hearts, and we want to be down there more. I'm not buying a place to build my business, but it's inevitable if I spend enough time there, I'll add a few clients. That will make me come down there more often, and also offset the cost of owning a place down there. So, win-win, in my opinion.

I do hope you get spared, but this storm has a scary feeling to it. The slow moving is worrisome, to say the least. But, if we can make it down, and not be in people's way trying to recover from a storm, we will be there later this week.

Woke up at 4:00 AM this morning and see it went down to 85 mph, much better news but still not good. I had time yesterday to put all my storm boards over the windows when it was 110 mph and coming right over Ocean Spring/Pascagoula.

I think you are talking about Cristobal. What kind of damage did it do in Ocean Springs?

Default Falling trees

This is my biggest fear during these slow moving storms.

You put 85 MPH winds on big trees with saturated ground their gonna go over.

Being inland 15 miles as the crow flies almost all the Damage around me was trees coming down during Irma. The big pines and oaks can literally smash a home.

Stay safe guys!
