Default Offshore MLK Day - Marine Forecast

Anyone else besides me watching the marine forecast for tomorrow and wondering if there will be an opportunity to run to the edge? Or is it wishful/crazy thinking...?

Today...West winds 25 to 30 knots decreasing to 20 to 25 knots. Seas 7 to 10 feet.

Tonight...West winds around 20 knots becoming northwest around 15 knots. Seas 6 to 9 feet subsiding to 4 to 6 feet late.

Monday...North winds around knots decreasing to around 10 knots. Seas 2 to 4 feet.

Monday Night...Northwest winds 5 to 10 knots becoming northeast around 10 knots early in the morning. Seas 1 to 2 feet.

Mark

Personally, I think the wind is blowing too hard today for it to be any kind of fishable tom. Just my .02

Mark It may be just a little to bumpy monday. Plus at the edge it will be rougher because of the current shift in that area. If you can get off tuesday should be the day to be out there. Just a thought. Gene

Yea I am hoping the forcecast iswrong and the wind will start to calm earlier than predicted.Tuesday looks like the day to go... but of course work prevents a Tuesday trip.

I'm going to watch the buoy observations and forcast throughout the day and make a final decisiontonight.

Latest Reefcast Ensemble from www.Florida-Offshore.com:::



Reefcast is showinga crappy tomorrow morning offshore, but calming thru the day... & Gene Recessis right on about checking ur currents beforehand too. FWIW,I wouldn't makea final decision until tomorrow morning at least,keepwatchof the reefcast update & buoy reading tomorrow a.m.

Good luck if you go! Unfortunately Tues does look beautiful but we can't go either

It was beautiful out there...got to go for a few hrs...out of Destin. Got really annoyed by the undersized Ajs and lots of red snappers as usual...no grouper...no keepers...we just were on 100' of water ..thats why...it was nice to get out there though.
