A long way. We caught some at Capricorn, devils tower, and the drill ship north of there this weekend; and some other boats did as well. Also heard of a few fish being caught at 8506. You need to go south of nakika to find good water, and it may be even further. The river was pushing hard. We started fishing on a rip just southeast of Who Dat, and by dark it was south of devils tower. Depending on what the water does, by later this week there may be very few good options.

Is the blue moving closer in or further away or do you know? We probably won't get a Hiltons shot for a month or so with all these darn thunder storms every afternoon

you don't necessarily need clear skies to determine the clarity, in our area you can use salinity in combination with altimetry/currents then use what little sea temp or chlorophyl data is available to come up with a pretty good idea of where the blue water is (or is not).

Bottom line, it's a LONG ways off right now, 130mi plus to get to true blue. Some scattered pockets closer, but not many.

The river is pushing it further out. I would estimate it moved over 10 miles on Saturday alone. The river was supposed to have crested on July 16, so there was and still is a lot of water being pumped out there.
