Was out at Vetrans Reef on Tuesday and ran 5 miles north in 40" of water. Did not Dive, vis looked to be about 5'. The wind had the water pretty churned up.

Bayport: 20' - 30' = 15' - 20' of vis. 40' - 50' of water = 0' - 2' of vis.

Went out of New pass Friday. 250 18 mi. in 70 feet. Had a good 40'. moved out to 80'. Clear on the top 60. Maybe 10' on the bottom 20'. Came in to 50' had 10' on the bottom- barely shootable. Lots of big gags seen in 70' Probably 25 at one spot. Funny how you don't shoot any and you can see the whole herd.

Vis was 5' tops in 25' off of venice. Headed close to the beach and there was decent vis in 10-15 ft at the concrete culverts. Ended the day with a few mangroves and a hog

Went out to New Pass and got a mangrove but vis was bad. Any idea when it will clear up around Sarasota?
