Default Big Fish, Big Water and Small Boats (Rig Run)

fishboy, sniperpeeps, yellowrivermuder and I are putting together a small boat run to the rigs for October 25/26th.

For us with small boats and limited range I will be departing out out of Pensacola at noonish on the 25th and running at a slow cruise to the Ram Powell rig fishing anything worth while on the way out. About 2 miles off the rig I plan on trolling in and fishing the rig for the duration of the evening/night. After day break I will troll a few other near by spots then head in late morning on the 26th. Latest reports indicate the RP rig is producing nice fish. If we get out there and the bite is dead we will relocate to another rig to fish!

Here is what sniperpeeps is doing for you guys with bigger boats and more range:
So here is what I am thinking, I'm going to leave out probably mid morning from shoreline park in gulf breeze. Where exactly I head will depend on reports/imagery. I think that if we have a good crowd of boats we can cover more water spread out a little but we still have the safety net of VHF. I also have a Delormme in reach that connects to my iPhone. I can send texts with it so if anyone else has one that is a form of communication as well. By spreading out we cover more water and if someone finds a good line or good tuna bite we can relay it to everyone else. My personal plan will likely sen me towards Petronius for the afternoon and evening bite and slide over to the steppes to soak squid that night and then troll/deep drop the next day. That is all tentative based on conditions/reports. I would also like to remind everyone to have your HMS permits.

For my trip you need to plan on at least enough fuel for 200mi of running.

I have local lodging available if you need to trailer your boat down and need a place to crash at night.
