Submarine Operations

Subs been off Dania for the last couple weeks.. be aware they are being very aggressive patrolling the area.
Twice, Last week and yesterday was out in the boat and was chased off the mooring/bait bouy's off the Dania Pier.

They told us we had to stay 100 yards inside the bouy line.

They did have an LED sign yesterday, we did not see it last week, waring of restricted area saying listen to Chan 16 on VHF , also had a phone number you could call for info.. missed the phone number.

Wish there was a web-site that posted these warnings in advance.

    I operate each day under the law of gross tonnage... You won't find it in Chapman's or any law book --- Stated simply the little boat stays out of the big boat's way... At least they've posted warnings...

    Yea Bob. this is different, they close down this area, often, Its basically from Port Everglades to Haulover, from 1 mile off shoreline out to 4 miles. They do make announcements on Chan. 16 , and if you appear to be getting into that are they will hail you on Chan 16. There are usually chase boats out there.. Some days they are out testing some autonomous remote boats being built in Ft. Lauderdale for the government and close the same areas.

    The bait balls/mooring bouys are in 20' to 28'' of water.. I worked on subs in the navy, same type fast attack.. the round hull tube is 34' diameter, conning tower is another 18' tall. There is no way that sub will get any where near 50' or less water.

    What ever operations they are doing out there its on the surface, running grid patterns.

    You can thank 9/11 for closed areas. Three of my all time favorite fishing areas are now closed due to base security zones.
