Hopefully the winds would fade out by Thursdays. If anyone is going out on Friday, could you send out a report? It would be great. Looking to go out on Saturday.

Thanks

7-1-12 report:

Location: Snapper Ledge, Key Largo
Depth: 31ft
Vis: 40ft
Winds: 0-5knot
Waves: 1ft
Water temp: 82F
Boat: 33' Stamas
Clear skies

Went out and caught 5 mahi, then came back in and blew a bottle at snapper ledge. Nothing there was worth spearing. All in all a good day.

Re: Current Vis Islamorada 73MM - Key Largo 106MM

I was in matecumbe yesterday in about 30 ft of water and the visibility was pretty bad maybe 20 ft couldn't see bottom from surface. Seas were flat but i guess the bottom was still crazy from the storms all of last week.

7-7-12 report:

Location: Around the Islamorada hump
Depth: 300-600ft
Winds: 5-10knots
Waves: 4-5ft w/6-7 swells

Stormy, lightning bolts cracking all around.

Went out today and was chasing birds around like crazy. Got 2 mahi not worth keeping, and a few baracudas. Was ridiculously rough, and an awful day!

8-4-12 report:

Location: Tavernier
Depth: 15-60ft
Vis: 50-60ft
Winds: 0-5kts
Waves: 0-1ft
Boat: 27? Sea-Vee
Weather: Clear skies until 4pm, then a big storm rolled in.

Went out and checked a ton of spots. Ended up with 1 nice black, a decent red, 7 hogs, a lionfish, and a just legal 10" snapper. Then we went out to deep water (60ft) and got on scuba. Went down and shot 4 hogs within 5 minutes. 1 hog got off (free shafting) and swam away, the other was victim to a nurse shark, which almost got my hands. The shark would not leave us alone, and was actually being very aggressive, I assume since it could see the fish on the stringer. Someone free dove down and told us to come down because there was a big storm coming in. It got dark down there once we started surfacing and the seas picked up to probably 3-4ft and the skies opened up. We got back and our end result was a black, a red, 9 hogs, a lion fish and a tiny snapper (legal).
