Extremely high tide and dirty water done us in too. Only managed one but he was a pretty good one. We pulled out about 10:30 after running and looking over 20 miles east to west. Dirtiest water I've seen all year.
Went gigging last night as well, and had the same problem. Was at the same place I went to Monday night(water was pretty clear), and sure enough you could not see 4 ft. down. Can someone explain what has an influence on the water clarity, besides rain? Kind of new to the whole gigging thing, but am still learning.
I'm a little unsure about the effects of the cold front. I intend to wade for flounder on Saturday night (because that's when I can go.) Looks like 5 to 10 kt. N/NW winds. Thinking of wading the sound (Rio Vista) or the north side of the island toward Ft. Pickens. Any advice in terms of which place? Don't have much control over the when.
