It's all of that oil they sunk with dispersent.It did n't just go away,it's coming back with underwater current.It can't be good for bottom dwellers.
Keep BP in the cleanup game ,they still made 7 billion in profit last year that they had to claim after,the clean up writeoff.

I went out to Ft. McRee to take a first hand look and took a bunch of pictures with my phone. It's real, real bad out there. As soon as I figure how to load up them from my phone to the internet I'll put them up here. A friend told me about this forum and about the oil out there that is being covered up so I signed up just to show these pictures and I can't get them on here.

I was told by the lone worker out there that they were not allowed to dig at all despite there being tons of oil balls and oil patties the size of dinner plates all over the area.

He said that they knew there was allot of oil in the shallows of Sailboat Cove and Sugar Island but were not being allowed to go and get it. He said it's still real toxic and even big fish like grouper were washing up on Ft. Pickens.

People - with all seriousness it's really bad and you need to take a look for yourselves and demand they do something. Although they told the folks at Eden they were scaling up the operation to address the huge oil spot that is right in from of Eden they fired over 100 people the next day according to my buddy.

I called the District 2 Commissioners office and left a long message because he was out but, told him I was pretty upset.

I called back and spoke to some guy who was supposed to be up on this thing but, the impression I got was that the county was not involved in any oversight - I smell a cover up of this whole oil business and it will ruin our little spot of fishing paradise.

Think I figured out how to get these pictures up here see if this will work:

If you have pictures and stuff put 'em here and we can get the local politicians involved if they like it or not. How can we get samples of this toxic sludge they are leaving in the Gulf and intercoastal and get it tested? Anyone know who to call?

I am sorry that it has taken me so long to post some pictures, but I needed to get them downloaded first. I am really happy to see the momemtum and attention this thread is getting right now. We all need to work together and not let BP walk away from the beaches, fishing and scuba grounds we all love. The pictures that I am posting are from a quick trip I took over to sailboat cove on December 28th. If you ever spend time with family playing in the water or camping on the island, these photos are going to shock you. I will continue to provide as much information as I can but I also need everyones help.

well thanks for the picks, It looks a lot worse over there but I'm sure fort walton is just waiting to get dumped on. Do you think they are just focusing on popular areas to clean instead of the entire beach? I'm sure there plenty of stuff we don't know about the dealing with hotels and clean up crews. If bp can go through all this shit and still make billions of dollars in profit last year then they aren't doing enough.

Thanks for the pics!

From what I've been told there is a lot of red tape slowing the cleanup effort - permits, observers, surveys, studies, etc. Too many companies found ways to make money off of this, and they'll drag it out as long as they can.

Not to derail, just FYI...
A friend of mine netted some Mullet last week and said all their gizzards smelled strongly of oil; so much so he couldn't eat them. He also said, of the 16 Mullet he caught, 4 had orange colored "sores" just underneath the skin. Don't know if it was cancer in the fish or not, he just said in 50+ years of catching Mullet he had never seen it before.
