I use reefcast and NOAA to get my wave forecasts etc. Looks like Wednesday might not be too good a day. It's getting better Thursday.

Seems like the rigs off the shelf are full of Blackfin from the sound of the reports. We were there 2 and half weeks ago and Ram had a ton of Blacks and some Yellows.

Wilkens weather and Impact are the ones I use. They are not free but are right 100% of the time.

The rigs have tuna (they always do), and by tuna I mean yellowfin and bigeye, and much bigger specimens on them. (100-150 pounders). October/November are probably some of the best months for rig fishing of the year for bigger fish.

Do you know what Wilkens is saying for Friday and Saturday? I am tired of NWS. Yesterday NWS was showing 1-2 with 5 knot winds.. today they are showing 3-5's with 15-20 knots.
