Oil Slick Approaching Destin

Saturday morning we headed out of Destin Pass in search of snapper, grouper, and amberjack.  The conditions could not have been more perfect. Calm seas, a gentle breeze, and about 70 degrees.  It doesn't get much better than that.  Our first stop was a wreck approximately 7 miles south of Destin.  On our way there we came across what the media has long forgotten, oil.  We were about 5.5 miles offshore and the slick measured approximately 100 yards wide and extended as far as we could see to the west.  It was the same nasty brownish colored toxic mix that filled the news all summer long in 2010.  I have contacted several government and environmental groups to try and find out more about our findings.  Pictures and exact locations will be posted soon.  Please check back for updates.
