We were out 45 nm a few weeks ago. No concentrated weed lines in the route we took. Blue water was at about 25 miles but that changes. Fished the brazos reef and close by rigs, didn't do much there. Best fishing was closer in at about 25 miles. We also trolled for about a mile approaching the Brazos reef with one strike.
The fishing is generally excellent out there though, so plan on great fishing and if it happens, then all the better.
