Default petronius close off

Just a heads up a friend of mine worked at the petronius this past few weeks.
Fishing was super slow. Was told they have divers working there until mid Augs.
No fishing within 1/2 mile of the platform. Just a heads up not sure how accurate this info is. Hes a good friend of mine and I'll take his word.

Is there anyway to verify this? I was planning on heading that way for an overnighter wednesday. Should there still be blackfin at marlin, can, or powell?

Not a long closure anyway.

You never know with Petronius. I've slammed tunas there many times in the past and have also seen it as dead as it gets around a rig. If you're leaving early enough from Perdido Pass, I say why not hit it, it may save you some fuel burn and reward the fish box. If not, just move on to the next.

I will add though, that the largest Blue Marlin I have ever seen in my life was at Petronius. That was the one that swallowed a 55-60lb Yellowfin I was reeling in.

Went Petronis a few weeks ago...filthy water but the tunas were there...couldn't do much because of sharks, but they were there. Caught some yft in even dirtier water around elbow that day. Hit marlin and ram and they were in good water but dead. Never know where they'll be. I'd rather fish dirty water with life and bait than blue water that's dead.
