    Fixed the photos, so many views exceeded photobuckets bandwidth so I moved them to another site.

    What a fantastic trip you guys had, I love the idea of staying on a houseboat while you were there.
    How far offshore do you have to run to the most productive oil rigs?

    There are 3500 rigs and pumping stations in the gulf. The Floaters are the big ones that are way offshore. We visited Medusa that is about 50 miles out plus add the 18 miles of pass you need to run back to the Marina. Others are fishable 30 miles out and the DeepWater Horizon is about 90-100 miles from where we were. The midnight lumps are a popular area for weekend boats.

    Holy Cow, I shouldn't allow such posts for fear that those of us in Florida would just quit fishing....

    Nice report.

    Been wanting to do that trip for some time now......gonna have to make it happen this year after seeing this kick **** report and Larry Dahlberg on TV today fishing with Eric on that decked out Sea Vee. They were catching TT, cobs, white marlin...you name it! Incredible fishery over there inshore and most definately offshore!

    Thanks for taking the time to share your trip with the forum. Very cool indeed. :thumbsup
