Default How long/how far out will this rain effect offshore fishing?

The long range forecast is for some pretty calm waters after all this crap passes. How does something like this effect the fishing out there? I know that close in the water will be really dirty, but will there be a good solid color break for a while or will this water quickly mix in with the gulf water and make everything murky for miles out? Does something like this shut the fish down and how long after it passes do they unlock their jaws?

I'm surprised no one has chimed in yet. Tomorrow is calling for west wind 6-10 knots and seas around two feet. If this is the case I can fish in that all day long. What I'm wondering though is if those two foot seas from the west are going to be on top of 3 foot swells from the south.

Swell is forecasted to subside by Wed. I use MSW for swell forecast.

IMHO the murky water & reduction in salinity will not help the bite.

Lightbulb Sea Surface Salinty

Here is a 144 hour surface salinity forecast from RTOFS starting from 6/10 Sunday at 7PM (00Z 11 Jun 2012). Starting from the last buoy out to sea; the 30 degree parallel heading due south is around 16nm for the Pensacola Pass, and around 22nm from the Destin East Pass for a point of reference.

Thanks for posting that. Am I correct in assuming that the red is good and anything else is reduced salinity?

Up close, it will dingy some. The rain was too localized to affect the blue water much. Maybe just a little. Had it been over the Mississippi watershed heavy, yes, it would have done more....
