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

So I'm the dummy! Dove Saturday out of Clearwater although a little closer to Anclote really. Viz was 10 foot and cloudy in 40 feet. Out in 65 feet of water it was pretty good, probably 25 feet or so but still cloudy. A lot of current was probably a factor. And yes it was cold, really cold. I did not look at my dive computer for temp but top was 53 degrees at 40 foot and 56 degrees at 65 foot. There was no thermociline. 5 mil top to bottom and still really cold. Shot a couple nice sheepshead and some ok hogs and mangroves. Gags were everywhere.

Looking for a vis/fish report off CLW/Tarpon. I know someone out there has been out with this gorgeous weather.

Was thinking of maybe doing a tank on Sunday - any prediction on water temps in about 35 feet of water off Clearwater?
