Default Offshore trip this week anyone?

Alright guys, I can't sit by and watch everyone having all the fun offshore anymore. Im looking to get out to Pensacola sometime this week for an afternoon trip. It'll have to be short notice because I don't get my day's work schedule until 5pm the night prior but the general float plan will be as follows:

Leaving from the first large Ft. Pickens parking lot we'll paddle on a southern course for 1.2nm to the Navarre Pier Rubble, then southwest for 0.6nm to the 3 Barges wreck, due west for 0.5nm to the Gulf Breeze rubble, due west 0.3 to the line of concrete pyramids, then 2nm straight back to the beach. Round trip distance should be 4.75nm and roughly 1.5 hours for total transit plus time spent on the bottom. Im estimating a mid-afternoon departure time with a return time around 8:00pm for a 4-6hr trip. I'll be planning on trolling on the transit and bottom fishing on the wrecks and reefs. This profile should give us around 45m-1hr on each site but I'm always flexible.

The numbers for the sites are:
Launch: 030 19.085, -087 14.444 (First L pullout after Ft. Pickens gate)
NPR: 030 18.0200, -087 12.7970
3 Barges: 030 17.450, -087 13.257
GB Bridge Rubble: 030 17.467, -087 13.773
Concrete Pyramids: 030 17.440, -087 14.421

Searching all numbers via google maps will give a general location for your own situational awareness as well as the location of the launch and parking lot. If you can't make it till later and I've already launched you're more than welcome to meet me on the numbers. I'll update this thread before I go out with a final estimated launch time. I can be reached at (nine-oh-eight)-309.6090.

If you're in for a short notice trip post a reply on here and shoot me your number in a PM.

-Matt

Looks like tomorrow I'm free until 8pm. Does anyone want to make this trip tomorrow morning leaving around 8am and getting back around 3pm?

Ummmm, have you looked at the radar or the weather forecast for tomorrow?
It really doesn't look good to be out there in a smallish boat let alone a Yak..............

The surf conditions don't look bad but damn, those thunderstorms can be very hairy.

Current conditions call for semiglassy surf, seas 1-2', radar and satellite are both clear with light winds...looks like a perfect morning!
