Here is a recent hi-res true color shot of the delta region. Pretty amazing sight with all of the different layers of water color.
None of what you can see in that shot is oil. Perhaps some of the charter captains or fishermen that have been offshore could give a better oil report, but at this point I'm sure that the oil is pretty well dispersed, decomposed, or below the surface.Any of that oil???
Actually, we (taxpayers) paid for that (base) image and a whole archive of them is available to the public @ http://rapidfire.sci.gsfc.nasa.gov/subsets/?subset=AERONET_Stennis :thumbup:Sweet. Where did You get that shot?
Good morning Sea Hoss. I have made some notes and annotations on the map. There is a good color change caused by a finger of river water that is approaching the Ram Powell. Often times this dirty + fresh(er) river water will displace bait to the fringe areas where the dirty water meets the blue water. In the open ocean, a color change such as this is analogous to physical structure that holds fish. I've marked a white line+dots to show this area. If I were in the area (fishing the deep rigs for example), I would definitely swing a little wide to give this area a good look. Look for bait, flying fish, and surface action here. Troll along this rip because pelagics will be hunting this area due to the higher concentration of bait. Also another positive factor for this rip is the altimetry is perfect.could someone please tell Me where You start fishing from looking at an image like this and what is Your looking for?
