No...should be in Hiltons or check the Kerr McGee website maybe they have something.

You will need a large boat with long range to get there though. If memory is right its like 165mi from Freeport - on the way to Auger.

I got them. Yeah, it is a ways, but Rick wants to give it a try if the seas allow us to make the run. He lost his DSL connection in the storm, so he could not get it from hiltons web site. The rig is to new to be on the hilton map I have.

Gunnison

The Ocean Star is set to arrive @ East Breaks#688 on Sunday June 6th, which is right next to Boomvang. The altimetry data however doesn't look that great for that area. Gunnison looks more promising.
Tight lines,

Gunnison

Howdy,
I just updated my database on the surface platforms and spars in the Gulf, and noticed the #'s for Gunnison posted above were not correct. The corrected position for Gunnison is; 27 18.247 / 93 32.307. Sorry for the mixup (*?!)

Did anyone fish the Spars (either Boomvang, Nancen, Hoover, or Gunnison) this weekend? Would like to see some reports.

All the best,
Tom Hilton

Rick,
Sorry to hear about your motor problems - hope it's not going to keep you land-bound for too long.
Thanks for the heads-up...I'm trying to correlate the SST and Altimetry data with confirmed fishing reports to create a database for you guys to reference.
All the best,
Tom

Nansen

We fished Nansen sat. Raise 3 blues live baiting off the buoy. 2 came up and circled a bait about 2 feet away then swam over and did the same thing to another bait. One swam off and the other followed. Both looked about 300lbs. Raised another about 100lbs. It chased a bait but never tried to eat it. Lots of bait around. Guess everyone was full. Caught some nice YFT and BFT, wahoo and dolphin. Water temp 83, no weeds. Late that afternoon the water started getting green.

Just got project boat up and running and I'm very excited about fishing those rigs. Fished "Tequila" a couple of weeks ago and it looks like I'll have the range without carrying extra deisel. Better take a little extra just in case. Great board!

Lights

They worked awesome! We had all kinds of stuff come up. You could see the tunas come out of nowhere and bust the bait. It definatly draws and keeps them around the boat. We spent Sat nite on the hilltops and after 5 minutes of having them on we had bait and dolphin behind the boat.

Heard a report of only blackfin coming from Gunnison, sounds like a bummer rig. I would concentrate my efforts to nansen if I was a betting man.......lol

tex

the lights we are talking about are mounted in your hull and light up the water under your boat. the lights draw bait to your boat and then the predators come to devour the bait and hopefully your offerings. poster on this site chaching sells them and installs them......rick

Mcgolfer,


When you say you "blew an engine", do you mean something simple like a head gasket or something more serious like a rod through the block?

Yeah it hasn't been there long enough to attract any fish yet. You'd be better off at the closer in rigs :)

Hey Brad, you might mention those transom lights to Capt. John. They might make a very nice addition to the Possession Limit if they work as good as reported. If they in anyway attract flying fish - you know the tuna come right with them.
