i think he was out on the 10th. you are correct but i guess i mistyped my question. i am more interested on if the fish were caught on top of the reef or if they were waiting for the bait to be pulled into deeper water by the current as it passed over the reef. also even if you have a current moving in a loop it is moving through a very large area and the current is pulling in a certain direction over the reef. if you are sitting on the reef it is going to seem like it is moving in a certain direction and if you knew no better it would seem that it was coming in or going out. just interested to know which direction the current was moving in in relation to where the fish were caught on the reef. but currents do move in horizontal directions. they often move for thousands of miles in a certain direction. for eg. if you are in carolina or the east coast and you are fishing the gulf stream you have a current that acts like a tide by moving in a n.n.e direction all the way up to the lefoten islands. on a different scale the tidal pull effects the movement as wells charts forecast. the water moves in and out at different speeds over the gardens on any diff day. then of course you have loop currents in the gulf that collide and correlate differently and cause many "weather systems" in the water.
so the question for jeff: which direction was the water moving in when you caught the hoo - mexico, cuba, florida, louisiana, houston, corpus, etc.?
