The Coast Guard put out a call today to look for a 24 ft. center console stranded in the Middle Grounds about 67 miles out of Clearwater. Any info?

Our elbow trip was repositioned into a day trip Sunday to 95', caught 15-16 mangos, a couple lanes, and a nice gag that hit a flatlined live sardine on a stinger rig.

Cooking a whole snapper now, but still daydreaming about our trolling spread with yellowfin skyrocketing around us. Just a couple Bonita this trip, a ballyhoo chopped off behind the hook. Ran a planer, xrap 30, ballyhoo under ilanders, flippy floppy thing, shotgun cedar plug. Were rigged for 200' but only saw half that. Next time.
slper and houlester like this.

I was in the MG's Sunday and was within VHF range. I believe he spun a hub & was making 5mph on the way in.

Reel Irie: Believe I might of seen your boat. I was in a light blue Viking.

we did see a big sportfish, so it may have been us. We had our limit of mangroves and a mixed bag of grouper by 11pm so we moved in to 100ft got our limit of Red Snapper then headed home -- slick calm ride in got back at 3am

Seriously though for a few days after she passes through the grouper will be congregated on those high relief ledges.

The bottom fishing after Wilma out of Jupiter was off the charts. Wish I could get to the MGs once it calms down.

Hey Guys, Looking like we are gonna try and make it to the Peaks South west of the Elbow on Saturday Sept. 23rd. Anyone else planning on being out there? I imagine the Wahoo should be a little Hungry out there with the 10 degree temp swing that Irma just Delivered to the Gulf. Also looking forward to finding a lot of floating stuff to fish under and some weedlines that should be pretty epic. Ill be on a Black Scout 42LXF out of Saint Pete. Anyone else thinking about making the run that weekend? We wont be leaving until after Day break as the amount of Hidden debris from Irma is not something I want to deal with Running in the Dark. Thinking about a 615 AM departure to head to Desoto to try and load the wells. If the Pilchards are there great, throw the net and by the time we are done we should be able to see well enough. If they aren't there, just gonna skip out on live bait so we can get right to the Peaks and Start Wahoo Trolling for the first half of the day, then work our way back in under 200 feet and bottom fish, making our way towards Saint Pete.

Good luck! Let us know how you do. Keep good eye out when traveling, we seen a fad anchored in 350ft+ on two separate trips this summer. They were 20 mile south of the peaks, but with Irma passing through who knows where they will end up.

Can someone pm me to verify the number I have for 72 fathom peaks? Went into my GPS and I show 3 different numbers around 4 miles apart from when I went out a year ago.

Looks like a break in the inbound sets of hurricane's for this weekend so get out and fish.

I've sold my offshore boat so just looking for the rest of you. Below are some cool things from the satellites that I've not seen before. With all the churn in the GOM we have some visibility breaks that show up on visual satellite images like you see off Venice LA, with the Mississippi River dump out. Along this color breaks there are huge temp changes 82 to 85 on the close in break. The chlorophyl images also line right up with these color changes and temp changes. That's 3 indicators for pelagic fish on top of each other. I'm no Roffs but he has taught us that as these indicators stack up the better opportunity for fish to be there.

First image is True Visual Satellite straight out front of Tampa Bay. The color change is in as close as 120 feet and as far out as 200 feet.

Second image is Chlorophyl showing power blue in against the green edge of dirty water.

Third image is sea surface temp. Don't get a bigger break during the summer than that, 3 degrees on a true edge. in 120 -200 feet, there has to be some big Wahoo's cruising in packs eating everything. Or lots of 20 pound Black Fin Tuna in that power blue water. Troll the edge and see if it produces.

I know its only Monday but keep watching it and hope it holds for the weekend. Or say [email protected]*& work and go this week. Let us know what you catch.

Ok, learn me something. Cause apparently I don't know nothing even though I fish right there all the time.
In that last picture would you be trolling parallel to your line in the 82 degree water to catch them wahoo.
Or zig zag back and forth across the line.
I usually just have a nice aimless meandering 3 knot boat ride out there for a morning pulling some ballyhoo for 4 hours while the peligics damn near drown themselves laughing at me then anchor up and catch fish off the bottom. Come back next weekend and repeat.
