Default tough time..

Had a hard trip, first the airforce restricted the area I was planning to fish, then when I got to a spot closer in my GPS lost connection, luckily a charter boat came up and when he left I went over and marked fish on the spot and anchored up, then the dolphins showed up. Managed to bring some fish home even though things got messed up, it was just me and my girlfriend so I wasn't on a fish killing mission like normal anyway. Is there somewhere I can see when and where the air force is closing off, this is one of many trips I've had to change when I'm already out on the water.



The good news is I took my new boat home yesterday and will have brand new electronics on it by this weekend. Hopefully will have some blood on it next week.

Did you head east out of the pass ? I know there is a restricted area out there, but it is about 20 miles off shore. As far as finding out if the area is closed off, I will ask when I go to work Monday morning.

they do tests in water only 5 or so miles on out some days during the week. They are only restricted certain times.

Call Eglin public affairs. I remember reading something about a ground to air kill test happening. See a "poof" in the sky?
