Nanoos and NVS are great. I still like the simplistic NOAA charts though for the "big picture", if not detailed info before a trip. Looks like the tuna highway was fully connected on Wednesday. Yes, 14C is still on the cool side but does qualify as albacore water.Nanoos is an excellent resource, especially for being free. If they had a more usable mobile site, I'd cancel my Ripcharts subscription.
Keep in mind it's still friggin June - and the forecast record heat wave hasn't even hit yet. When that 14C contour is replaced by 16C water, shits gonna get real in a hurry. At 18C and above, all bets are off as to what kind of offshore visitors we might get from much further south. Screw bluefin, if this trend continues I'll be tying up jet-head flies and other shit for striped marlin.
