Realtor (10/06/2010)i was over there a little while ago, there are 2 skimmers working in the channel just east of scm, another dragging absorbant boob.
Absorbant BOOB? Now there's a Freudian slip! LOL! Kidding aside, this sucks (pardon the language). We need to be dragging around some "absorbant" BP execs, as well as a bunch of politicians and "regulators" (MMS)! The response is sadly and woefully inadequate, and not just here!
ha ha, I was typing with one hand and only one finger on that hand.....

Well the shit has hit the fan!!!!!! This is what I feared would happen, as we all sit by and wait for the BP cleanup crews there is oil invading some of the most pristine waters around. This is why i have the volunteer list posted WE ALL THAT HAVE FISHED THIS AREA OWE THE AREAS WATER THE COURTESY OF CLEANING UP THIS MESS ! It will be very interesting when the oil hits areas like seaglades and grande lagoon. Wait until one resident from those areas wakes up to see a glob of oil wrapped around a dock piling while at the same time blocking and chocking the seagrass of light and oxygen, the media then is really going to see some pissed off people. Like i have said many times we are the only ones who can clean this mess up!

Please spread the word, and sign up !!!

Thanks, James Spires

I was out in the pass today and saw plenty of oil. The grass that was mentioned has globs of oil all in it.I saw oil all the way to the old CC station.

I went out yestday (wednesday) and can for sure confirm that there were surface globs of the brown reddish oil just outside the Pensacola pass and headed towards ft pickens area. After about half a mile headed east it was gone. Reached out and grabbed some just to confirm I wasnt seeing seeweed and that stuff is hard to get off once you get it on you. Going to be a nightmare to clean up if we ever get it bad here. Sad to see it first hand. Trying to go one more time tomorrow morning if they dont close the pass. Hooked up on a huge shark about 5 miles out.. Wasnt targeting shark but this guy hit my bait and gave me an hour and half fight. Snapped my good rod in half and lost him ten feet from the boat.. looked to be 8-10 in length and very heavy. Snapper bite is great right now though.

mdrobe2 (10/06/2010)That's pretty wild- we saw some last week but none today...we were back at the dock by noon though. Plenty of nice red snapper!
Winds have switched and instead of blowing out of the SW they are now out of the SE during the daytime and most likely NE at night helping to keep most of the Oil away from the Florida coast for the time being. The next system we get that comes in from the West though will switch the winds again and we'll be under attack again. Sure would be nice if we could keep a majority of the oil away until the fall when more prevalent northerly winds will kick in and push it out to sea to dissipate!

Not so loud. This could be BP's next plan of "attack"!

I have a yellow card and the propper training and no one will hire or let me go to work....stand in line and watch it come in seems to be the alternative....what a bunch a crap! I have access to a boat they are not taking any more vessels at this time...I was told...so I stand in line and wait....I work in the marine industry and this spill is killing my job.... I love these waters just like ya all and am passionate about saving these beaches. =(

Just got back from spending all morning at Ft Pickens, at the pass, the only oil I saw was on reeds that had floated ashore. The clean-up crews were there, but only for about 1-2 hours. Lots of activity going on, saw several boats that were skimming farther out in the gulf. One large ship to the east of the pass, anchored and not moving. Watched the helicopter land with Salazar. lots of other helicopters were headed out in the gulf. All in all, a good day. I will check it out again tomorrow.

Arrived at Langdon Beach (Ft Pickens) ay 8:30am walked west for about 2 hours, marked a few (maybe a dozen) oil spots, none bigger than a quarter. No clean-up crews that I saw, I was able to stop an officer on a four-wheeler to notify him of the locations that Imarked with sticks stuck in the sand. As I was leaving, I noticed a couple of the skimmers in the sound well inside the pass. SAD.
