Plans made, gear ready. Scouted out 3 places in 30' to 40' before the storm came, insane amount of gags. Just need good seas and vis for Friday.

Depends on the tide and where the Tampa Bay outflow is headed. Either is going to be crappy.

Re: Friday June 1 roll call

Can't find anyone to work for me Friday, and no way I'm dealing with public ramps on Saturday. I still might be able to get out with a buddy who belongs to a private ramp.

Possible. But viz remains concern and having to consider charter....so lot of variables to weigh, and the Moose is reframing my optimism with doses of reality....may remain at work and not take the day off, look for viz report, and see if Sat becomes an option, but then there's TBSC tournament.....

Re: Friday June 1 roll call

I'm a native that has a lot of experience in the area. IMO, one would be better off w/ some dead sardines in vis like this. At least they can smell them. With the long duration of crappy weather, they'd likely be hungry for such.
Given the sea moss everywhere and low vis, I'd use a sardine w/ a little cork next to it to suspend the bait up where it can be seen/unlogged. Also, limit the sinker so that it's a least ~3' above the hook.
