Hey guys haven't been on the forum in a while been to busy fishing a month without a lower unit. But it's time to transition and get ready for the ska king mackerel nationals next week in Biloxi. As far as weather for the Gulf what sites or apps are you'll using for weather down there. Just trying to get my ducks in a row. I should throw the gigging boat in the 34 ft hydra sport and gig a night or 2 but we know that's not going to happen just looking for some good info about the weather city and fishing in the area.

Although they do not tell you the weather in advance, if you watch the wave patterns in correlation with watching the forecast you should get an idea of what wave height and winds you will be dealing with.

Wave model for the Orange Beach buoy, 44 NM SE of Mobile, AL

Wave model for the Pensacola buoy, 115 NM ESE of Pensacola, FL

For the marine forecast I use Wunderground, they pull all their data from NOAA.

After all this you still do not know unless you go.

NOAA 42040 buoy is the only one that is providing info. There are some noaa weather stations that u can get a wind reading, one at ship island, the other at Gulfport harbor that can help. Along with the noaa marine forecasts. I live in Biloxi. Sometimes making way through the island cuts can be choppy. Ska nationals is a race to block 108, and more so the horsehoe rigs/ salt dome area from what I have been told. Tons of big mullet in the back bay to be caught for bait, I know most guys go out and catch 3lb+ bluefish and hard tails (blue runners) for bait as well. Either giant sabiikis or better yet small diamond jigs. If u want some more info about Biloxi, places to go, eat, drink, etc let me know.
