Debris Offshore

We spotted this telephone pole about 20 miles out Wednesday and it scared me. It was 15-20 feet long and definitely big enough to do some serious damage. And very little of it was visible above the surface. I think things like this are one of the biggest threats we face offshore.

I called it in to the Coast Guard and hopefully they sent someone out.

PS—no bait or dolphin on it, just a handful of undersize triple tail.

Be careful out there!

Hey Shawn,

Yes, the current was running so hard at the 8 mile rigs where we normally get bait I do think you could have tied off and ridden a boogie board on it. No bait, and I wonder if that was why.

We were trying for amberjack, and were covered up with snapper as I reported in another post. But--and don't tell anyone--there was a school of mahi mahi at the weather bouy as big as my front yard. And I have a big yard. No time to try a line there, but I will be planning another visit soon.

See ya,

Cole

I jumped one that looked about like that five or so years ago at about 40mph in the WC400 block about 80 miles out. As luck would have it, only damage was from impact on bow, it pushed down enough motors cleared it. I did take some teeth off reverse gear on left hand motor due to pulling back to fast and touching reverse in it for a second.

Do think if I would have slowed before impact, boat would not have pushed it down as much as it did, and would have taken my lowers off.

We actually his a submerged tree about 10 mile out of matagorda on May 1 coming in . Kicked the starboard motor up but thankfully no damage. It looked like the root ball was the only thing floating. True keep your eyes peeled for hazards
