Last year  a buoy in the gulf hit 100 degrees. The temp sensor on my GPS unit on my boat was averaging low to mid 90's through the summer in the gulf. The fish were already cooked when you pulled them out. :grin:
Supposed to be an active year in the tropics. Hopefully we get a lot of fish storms.
Gas is relatively cheap at the moment so I think I'm going to start getting gas for the genny.
