seas look to be calming down Monday and Tuesday next week finally!! We’re taking off work and heading out st.aug about 50-60miles might troll in the am and then head to the bottom. Any good reports? 
Best of luck tight lines!

    we tried it... was ok out to about 40  (but was 2 ft @ 2 seconds not 4) then it got sporty and even more so at the edge... at about 730 saw few boats around the 140  mark put them out and headed East and we followed and it was tough to keep the speed consitent due to how rough it got... like 3-4 @3 seconds so it wasn't enjoyable by any means and we had 2 greenhorns on that had trouble with it... after about 2 hours without a strike on the HS's we tried to work up some triggers but it was windy and rolling so made it hard to stay on them... made a bunch of drifts and only managed a few Big triggers, AJ's, Porgies a handful of Huge Beeliners and about 6 strawberry groupers which were all small, vented and released successfully.. no Hoos this time which is the most depressing part but we gave it try and found a few new bottom spots to try out later...
