    Just took a couple SST screen shots off my Lowrance HDS7 sitting in my boat at home in Bremerton.

    Now the big question - where would you look for tuna? What temperature band would be ideal? I think I've got it in the ball park and I'm thinking I'd start looking at areas South East of the cursor, along the blue edge that have a high definition between cold/warmer water. Just curious what some you with more experience think?

    The SST is not your issue this season as the water is plenty warm. The main issue is locating blue water or a good edge. Hopefully we will have some clear days soon for the sat shots.

    thats an interesting SST shot you have on your Lowrance. What date is that supposed to be from?

    I ask because there is no 56 degree water anywhere near where your cursor is set in the bottom pic. Its all 60-63 degrees out there according to Terafin, ripcharts and Modas. A 3-4 degree break would be quite an anomoly out there like that.

    Mike, that was taken about 4:30-5:00pm yesterday. I'll try it again today and compare.

    The Tuna 8.8 posit is where we found them last year on 8 Aug, 45 miles from Westport.
