Default Drillship Deepwater Asgard

According to Vessel Finder this evening we have a new drillship that has moved into our general area (MC 122). As of 9 Dec 2016 the "Asgard" has moved to the following location:28.8475 N / 88.3095 W. This puts this vessel approx 108 miles SSW of OB or approx 16 miles W of Horn Mtn. I plan on altering my route Tuesday nite to fish it on my way to the Proteus. I don't expect much since she has only been there for a few days, but one never knows. I'll send a report one way or the other upon my return. Tight lines.

For what its worth, Hiltons still shows it SW of SW pass. But if they moved it east, all the better!

Hilton's is a reliable service as I subscribe to it myself. It gives most everything in real time except vessel locations. As such, when I need current information of vessel locations, I use Vessel Finder which pinpoints vessel locations in real time using their broadcast AIS information.

I can tell you EXACTLY where it is at? I am sitting 500m from it waiting to go alongside to get some mud from them.

2850.8N / 088 18.5W

They just went back on contract with Chevron

Rain Squall just went through. Not much wind, picked up to 20 but back down to 10kts. Seas are 2-3, mostly 2', from 270.

If he shows up I'll report any of his catches. We didn't get here to 0500 so he may have already came and went.

Nobody has showed up to fish the rig, I asked the other crew that works from Noon to Midnight. Seas at the time are 1' from NNW / winds less than 10kts.

Still here, should have been gone for crew change but Oh well, you know how it is in the oil field.

Deeplines, you may not see anyone fishing, but do you see any fish or signs of fish?

I fished this DS on Tuesday evening around 2300 for an hour. I was marking nothing but bait fish and saw no activity on the surface of any kind. Tried to jig up some BFT, nothing doing. I think this will be a good location to tuna fish, but not just yet. I'll give it another try next month. Moved on to the DS Proteus and had much better luck. Schoolie YFT and the usual crowd of BFT. No cows, but I heard back at shore that a couple of 80 and 100 # YFT were taken there Monday nite. Tight lines.
