Default Where has everyone gone?!?!

I am quite surprised at the fall off of fishing reports this year on the forum. Used to be there would be a new one just about every day, now we get maybe one a week.

Did I miss the memo informing us what the new hot forum is? Is everyone just resorting to FB?

What's up!??

I can tell you why Robert. There's nowhere near the amount of guys Bluewater fishing right now. The dirty water this season has turned off the masses. Many are going fishing, but the targets have temporarily shifted. Once that water cleans up a bit more I expect to see more reports.

This is just going off of what I'm seeing/hearing in the shop. It's also the reason I've been fishing inshore/nearshore all season. The majority of boaters are not going to run 100+ miles.

I planned on chasing that little bit of blended water to the south east this Friday and I had intentions of posting the report. Weather guy had other plans with 2-4s forecasted and we are in a 23' center console. If anyone else is going to brave it let me know, I might buddy boat out there but that's a bouncy 40 mile ride

Pretty much sums it up. Myself and most I know are getting them off the bottom for time being. If it helps I have trolled one time this season and have one medium Wahoo to show for it, and that was back in June when the water was BLUE. Beeliners and Scamp have been very tasty though.

My Tarpon are on the beach. I'm not going more than a few hundred yards offshore unless a Tarpon pulls my kayak further. Once the water cleans up, then I'll head out on something with horsepower.

Was just talking about this last night. Really hoping the water conditions improve in close and we get a similar whitey bite like we had a year ago.
