Default Weather window

Hello all. New to the forum. Have followed for years. Wave report has Friday and Saturday looking promising for an tuna trip. Is anyone else thinking of giving it a go? We would be running out of OB on friday and back on saturday. Thanks

I am planning the same thing. Leaving Friday morning coming back Saturday. Weather looks good at rigs right now for those days. 2 ft or less and minimal wind. Full moon on Sunday so it will be well lit all night. A chance of rain and cloudy on the beach Friday and Saturday but my forecast shows sunny and 70 at the rigs. I agree with previous post. Watch weather close this time of year. I made a rig trip first weekend of February and had to postpone departing 24 hrs because the forecast changed at the last minute. Im fishing on the BOONDOGGLE. If you see us out there holla. Welcome to the forum and good luck!

Weather permitting, We are coming down from Atlanta Early Friday morning, launching from Orange Beach, should be at Patronius in the afternoon, will set up trolling spread between the rigs, then jig and chuck over night, returning Saturday afternoon. Boat name is Chillin & Reelin, give me a shout if you see us out there.

Good to hear that other boats will be potentially going (weather and wave conditions permitting). Helpfully water quality in the VK area is decent. Haven't looked at hilton yet but will before we go. Had to go to ensco 8505 in july to get to blue water and even that was at the inner edge of blue water.

Default Heading out

Been watching forecast and getting better each day. New to forum and area. Second trip to rigs, any advice which rigs are better to fish this time of year? Heading out Thursday to Ram Powell, coming back Friday. Be up 68, boat name precious catch.

Pretty much all the rigs from petronious and on farther south have always produced blackfin for us. Jigging for blackfin after dark and through the night is fun but exhausting! YFT,s for us have taken more effort. We usually set up a chunck line on the drift. Usually cleaner water has a better yield.
