Re: Daily Vis report thread

Mainly winter flounder, pollock, lobster, and occasional tog in MA. Mainly tog, scup, stripers, and some seabass, triggers and summer flounder in RI.

I also moved from and NJ and it's been pretty awesome up here. The variety and number of spots to be able to shore dive is much more than in NJ. NJ is still pretty good, just harder to get good days of viz since all shore locations face East whereas up here, if there's a strong West wind, I'll find a dive spot facing East.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Manasquan was dirty today. 1-3 feet. Blackfish and a fluke at 8am slack tide.
Hope we get some clean water soon. Been a dirty year.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

That's cleaner than BI was. You weren't shooting any tog in there today with the dredger going. We still managed another big fluke though, this one over 9lbs. I might hit it again tomorrow, but 4 fish at or over 9lbs, I'll take that any year...

RV GOAT DIVE REPORT
We first hit a wreck off Seaside area in about 80 ft of water. Bottom temps around 62 and vis a slightly cloudy 15 ft or so. Not a lot of life on this one but a few nice fluke came up as well as a lobster. Next we headed inshore a bit to a wreck in about 65 ft that held loads of fluke when last dove about 1 1/2 weeks ago. Only a few shorts were there today. Either the storm moved them offshore or the commercial draggers got them . I think their quarterly quota just opened up and they were out doing their best to fill the boat. It was calm on the surface till 1 pm or so when the wind picked up. The green surface water seems to be gone also.

RV GOAT dive report: 9-8-2017
A few of us got out Friday and were greeting by fairly calm seas with a 3 to 4 ft swell spaced pretty far apart. We first tried the Gulf Trade Bow but found only about 3 ft of vis so we moved offshore a bit. As we got further out the wind picked up and the chop a little bit worse.
We ended up at a steel wreck in about 90 ft . The vis there was about a cloudy 10 ft at the good spots and less less in other spots. It did not seem to matter if you were on the bottom or top of the wreck. Stan did some digging and ended up with about 20 keys ( door lock keys?) and some other interesting brass items. Bart came back with a lot of seafood. Bottom temp was about 59.
Next we hit one of the ballast piles in the same area. Vis was a little less but still some nice sea food came up. By now the wind had let up a bit and we has an easy ride back to the slip.
Nice day on the water with a mostly full cooler.

Re: Daily Vis report thread

Barnegat inlet yesterday, very choppy (inlet side) until slack and viz was in the 4-6 ft on surface and not much better at 20ft deep. High tide water wasn't cold. I saw lots of togs (small), but I can't aim fast enough with my 90cm barrel speargun. I thought what the hell and I shot one who was disappearing in the mist, and missed. I didn't see anything else than Togs, I tried a few 25ft dives but viz wasn't good enough to see anything, or there is anything, already ?

RV GOAT Dive report 9-12-2917
Today we headed out of Barnegat Inlet to a low wood wreck in about 65 ft. Vis was about 15 ft and several nice lobster came up. Next stop was the San Saba where vis was 5 to 10 ft so we cut this dive short.
Our next stop we headed North a bit and hit a small snag which also had poor vis but gave up some nice lobster. Lastly we hit another small spot close by and had the same poor vis.
Stan got this lobster limit but I did not. Still some very nice lobster came up and it was pretty calm all day. Hopefully the swells go away and allow the bottom to clean up. The surface was very clean and you could see down about 30 or more ft.
