It has been nice and calm today and yesterday. Wind will be out of the West at 10 tomorrow. We have had a lot of rain lately, and wind. I will go out tomorrow and let you know how it is.

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

I tried to go check it out yesterday. Didn't want to get beat up by the 3 to 4 footers and turned around.

Can't wait for this wind to ease up!

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

10/14/11, 12 miles west of Anna Maria, 4 to 5's with north wind at 15+
Vis was 20 to 30 at 50 ft. Second drop 5', 3rd drop 20 to 25.
Limit on hogs and gags x 3. some mangos, red group, and flounder.
Great day just bumpy. Looks like it will be crappy for at least a week.

Thank you, really appreciate it, especially since we are driving over from Jupiter


Also, are you referring out of St Pete?

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

Its the entire coast lol...I went out of anclote just before the blow and vis was decent in shallow but it blew just as hard there as it did in naples so right now its nasty just about anywhere. Its killing me because I am dying to get out!!! I was considering driving to your coast in case it was better over there this weekend

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

This is my first winter season diving. how long does it take after a strong cold front like this one for the visibility to get good? I was going to go tomorrow but since its still blowing I imagine the vis will suck.
