Re: offshore fish reports and general offshore report observations

Yes the cords are Brazos alpha 132
Latitude 2749"23.348
Longitude 9559"25.478
The seas are still kicking out here 4-6 chop with a big ground swell
Also be aware at certain times the current rips at this location
There are three jackets laid over here next to each other bottom is about 205fsw but the top of the jackets are about 155fsw on the deep side and about 100ft off bottom on the shallow side
There are a tons of life on these jackets we just laid the rig was built in 73 so it had tons of good sea growth good luck guys and be safe out here post picks I would appreciate it

That sounds like a great spot to hunt! Thanks for the coordinates. You allowed to post any pictures of the job? I work offshore as well and it kills me watching the ROV feed seeing all the teeming life!

Re: offshore fish reports and general offshore report observations

Still off the coast of Freeport and the wind is settling down tonight hopefully it will lay down Friday morning seas are 4-6ft swell with wind about 15
Knots we have been seeing a ton of sharks some tigers and various others in the 4-10ft range.
I have also been seeing some small dorado and some lingering cobia mixed it with the sharks.
Visibility is still about 100ft on surface
