There is direct Gulf Stream water (73°F-74°F) pushing over the 500-1000 fathom ledges between Poor Mans Canyon to Baltimore Canyon and toward Wilmington Canyon with a large counter-clockwise rotating Gulf Stream eddy centered farther south over the 1100-1300 fathom ledges east of Washington Canyon. This eddy system is pushing Gulf Stream related filament water (60°F-66°F) as far inshore as 40-50 and 100 fathom ledges between Norfolk Canyon to Washington Canyon and Poor Mans Canyon to Baltimore Canyon. These ocean conditions are rather unusual for this area and for this time of year to see the direct Gulf Stream this far north and inshore. The proximity of the Gulf Stream this close to the canyons creates some unique early spring chances at tuna, shark and swordfish action as well as yellowfin tuna, dolphin and wahoo action where you locate the 68°F-73°F direct Gulf Stream edges. This direct Gulf Stream water is expected to push even farther inshore and north into Baltimore to Wilmington Canyons and even Spencer Canyon during the next 24-48 hours, so if weather permits, call ROFFS™ for a report and take advantage of the early season canyon fishing.Please click here to view the resolution images and analysis from March 24, 2015 on our website now!
Letters to the Editor of ROFFS™ Fishy Times – Gulf Spill Restoration Team Statement courtesy of: The Gulf Spill Restoration Team | Sent March 19, 2015
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill Natural Resource Damage Assessment Trustees have issued the following statement in response to the press release and report from BP concerning the health of the Gulf of Mexico:
In a news statement released March 16, BP claims that the “…Gulf environment (is) returning to pre-spill conditions” although the Deepwater Horizon oil spill Natural Resource Damage Assessment Trustees (NRDA Trustees) are still assessing the injury resulting from the largest offshore oil spill in our nation’s history. It is inappropriate as well as premature for BP to reach conclusions about impacts from the spill before the completion of the assessment.
Citing scientific studies conducted by experts from around the Gulf, as well as this council, BP misinterprets and misapplies data while ignoring published literature that doesn’t support its claims and attempts to obscure our role as caretakers of the critical resources damaged by the spill.
Enhanced LORAN Being Considered as a Backup for GPS Notice courtesy: Federal Register | Original publication March 15, 2015
The purpose of this notice is to seek comment from the public and industry regarding potential plans by the United States Government to implement an enhanced Long Range Navigation (eLoran) system as a complementary positioning, navigation, and timing (PNT) capability to the Global Positioning System (GPS). The positioning, navigation, and timing performance of eLoran will vary widely depending on the number of transmitters and monitor sites for corrections that are implemented.
The Department of Transportation seeks input on: (a) A brief description of your application(s) of positioning, navigation, and timing services; (b) the positioning, navigation, and/or timing performance required for a complementary PNT capability tosupport operations during a disruption of GPS that could last for longer than a day, (c) availability and coverage area required for a complementary PNT capability, (d) willingness to equip with an eLoran receiver to reduce or prevent operational and/or economic consequences from a GPS disruption, (e) current and planned availability of e-Loran capable user equipment, (f) other non-eLoran PNT technologies or operational procedures, currently available or planned, that could be used during a disruption of GPS for longer than a day.
