Default Water Clarity

How is the water clarity in the bay right now? Last time I saw it (about a week ago), it was poop brown.

Thanks!

I'd go as far as to say that there is no water clarity in the bay

Oh, the dolphins were fun, chased the dangling anchor and nearly jumped in the boat. Scare the pants off big T up in the front of the boat. He has a thing about dolphins anyway.

Big T and I launched at Shoreline about 2:00 pm and the water had a red stain to it, but not cloudy. It looked vastly improved from weeks past. Went out to Ft. Pickens and couldn't catch a thing. Came back to EPA station and caught a few bait size pin fish..then called it a day. Big T was traumatized by the dolphins.

Even if the water cleared up , I'm not sure the fishing would improve. I don't think our little fishie's around here are used to these kind of winters lol.

Here's your best bet (when the clouds allow)...

http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/s...ERONET_Stennis

Along with the projected river levels @ http://ahps.srh.noaa.gov/index.php?wfo=mob

You can get a pretty good idea of what the water looks like on the large scale.

For the first time in over two months all the rivers are falling below flood and action stages.

Also this may help a little, though it's only upddated once a week (at best).
