Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

Out of CLW pass 5/25/19
Ran way N of Anclote up to around Bayport. Dive one a ledge in 50'. Picked up 4 mangos. Viz 30'. Temp 80.
Went deeper to 66'. Large area of limestone structure. Had a big beam in it and some other debris. Saw the tail of one male Hog enter a cave. That was it. Couldn't find him. Shot a mango.
Moved SE to 60' to a very small ledge. Had a few keeper gags. Shot 2 hogs there and 4 mangos.

Viz and temp about the same on all dives. Bit hazy. Some particulate in the water. Seas were not great. 3' rollers out of the S in am. Not bad as we ran N. when wind switched to, we were hoping for lay down, but it chopped it and white capped it up. Easy enough ride home though in 30' boat.

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

Oh, and we found a boat!! Radioed it in to Coast Guard. Owner was trolling radio and picked up transmission. There was rock anchor, some chain and enough rope, so with a few wire ties to rig it up, I hear we made the day of "some old sailors looking to live their dream, and that we filled our Karma bucket!" LOL! They texted our Cpt this am. Glad they got it back.
