Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

Monday... Out of anclote... west... 35' deep... viz was real hazy... 15' in the morning, 10 later in the morning...
Went to 45' viz was 12-15'

Between the 2 of us freedivers, we managed 1 gag, 6 hogs, 4 mangos, and a small Cuda... not too bad! Gags were skittish... no sharks were seen.. I'm guessing because the viz was bad... seas 2' in the morning calmed to 1' in the evening. Great day!

Nice! Vis is crappy, and prob going to get a lot worse before it gets better.

Viz in 15 feet of water in the Intercoastal was about 6 inches. Buddy used my 200 pound anchor we retrieved last month to keep his 30 foot Proline from washing away in Irma and had to retrieve it.

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

I ran out to the RJ in 65' off Anclote yesterday.

Vis was nil, nada, zilch, zip, no go.

I couldn't see my fin tips or the tip of my gun.

I tried diving down to the wreck, but it kept getting darker and darker. Too spooky for me on a normally sharks wreck.

Re: Current Vis - Tampa Bay Region (Homosassa to Sarasota)

Went out 9/17 W of Anclote in depths ranging from 25-50 feet. Vis was not good across the board but improved slightly with depth. Spots with vis did not have fish on them. Overall a wasted day.
