There will be many out there swording and fishing the rigs. I've sold a pile of squid and ballyhoo today so there should be a lot of boats on the water over the weekend.

I won't be spending the night out there but plan to hit the edge, nipple, and maybe the 131 hole up first thing Saturday morning. According to the satellite service I subscribe to it looks like blue(ish) water has moved into the edge area and there looks to be a nice rip about 18 miles from Pensacola Pass towards the edge.

I'll be listening on 68. "Ashley Maria"

Go to the edge, use a chicken rig with squid and then send down some live bait. On the bottom for Grouper and half way down for big jacks. Long leaders for jacks and 6' for Grouper.

Ended up spending the night at the oriskany. Had a boat to the NE and one to the South about a mile away. Got a 3 man limit of ajs and a bunch of mingos. Headed in an hour after daybreak.
