Water is very cloudy due to the scattered showers are us. Before the rains came there was a school of black fin around us. Nothing to travel all this way. We are still not allowing vessels close to us because of the ongoing mooring.

Last I heard the vessels in the field are asking for a 2 mile buffer.

Day 3 of glass

3 days in a row of clean water and no waves. Oh, and no fish either. 3 sport fishers trolled by and nothing caught. No more 2 mile band.

I fished Appomatox & Balder on the evening of 9 June and found similar results. Not much in the way of marking fish and certainly didn't catch anything after a 2hr attempt. Pushed West to West Capricorn and Nakika. Caught some of the biggest BFT I've ever seen, but no YFT.

On a side note, on THT under the Gulf Coast Section they are talking about the lack of YFT bite in general throughout the entire region, less the Green Canyon.

Thx OP-FOR for the update and looking forward to future reports of tuna!

Much thanks for the on-site reports OP-FOR!!! Are you on the rig or a Vessel serving the rig?


I’m on the platform. As of now we have a large school of black fin tuna that have taken up residency around the platform. Pop up showers are a norm around us.

06-29-2018 Appomattox

One heck of a storm out here a few hours ago. 3 boats fishing onsite rode it out. One hook up with a Marlin this morning before the weather came through. Seas and winds have finally calm down. No grass in sight and the water is cloudy due to the rain.

According to Vessel Finder, the Appomattox is located at: 28.57263N/87.9332W which is approx 116 miles SSW of OB at a heading of 192 deg. As another reference, it's parked above the wellhead that the DS Proteus used to be at on and off for the past 18 months.
