Default 07-03-2018 Appomattox

Seas have laid down. Very large school of hard tails hanging out. The water is still tainted. No black or yellow tuna. No flying fish.

We kept having to seek shelter inside the building on the platform because of the lightning. You all had no where to go.

We were there Saturday morning. Some bft tuna around.
Want to apologize for getting close with a diver in the water. We backed out slowly and safely. If you have an extra dive flag, could you fly closer to sea level? The one on the NW corner was really high up and didn't initially notice it.
Thanks for your patience.
P.S. that's a really nice looking platform. It's highly distinguishable from all others with the Shell yellow.

We were out there this past weekend and it was not very good. Water was murky, but not terrible, we trolled around the drill ships and out to hub with nothing to show. Ended up pulling the plug on the rigs after the first night and went to the spur for swords.

A note as to how bad it was, we saw more lilly pads and water hyacinths than seaweed.... WAAAYYY to much freshwater out there. We were picking up a thermocline anywhere from 25' to 75' which was likely the bluewater underneath the murky freshwater layer. Bonita were everywhere. Blackfins at the hub were on the very small size < 15lbs.

If I were in a tourney this weekend for anything other than big blue marlin (dogging some of the bonita schools) I'd probably look elsewhere.

Have conditions out there improved at all? Planning to give it a shot next weekend.

I'll throw in a Sharav report here since I can see the Appomattox from this location. The water is clearing up a little and the current started moving quicker yesterday. The big yellowfin are back. Yesterday and today I've seen them off our bow from 200 yards to half a mile out. Both side of the bow. Most boats that pull up here fish right next to the ship. Nothing but cudas and jellies that close. Good luck
