Sat/Sun south of the Sambos, 5-15 @ 100' no current. Topside, mild swells and Foggy till about 10am. Still managed a couple of blacks and a sunburn.
Charter capts said Hawk Channel was top to bottom west of KW harbor. Didnt feel like running all the way out there.

Re: Current Vis Key West 0MM - Big Pine 30MM

Was out W/SW of western dry rocks

We had a good 70 feet of vis and a ripping currrent that had to be near 3-4 knts.

I still managed to pull some large greys and dogs from 15-25 lbs and my friend had a nice 25lb king that he shot in 40 ft

Wound up tanking some deeper ledges from 110-170 and managed some lobbies, triggers and 3 of us pulled 29" blacks

Was a bit eerie heading out there with the thick fog but all in all it was a good day

Re: Current Vis Key West 0MM - Big Pine 30MM

There wasn't 1 ft of viz between BP Shoal and American Shoal this am.

It was a nice smooth ride out to the reef at 730 am but by time I headed back in the wind picked up. It's gonna get rough for those of us with small boats
