Does anyone know if the water is clearing up yet?

On the Zoom Cam the water looks clearer this morning but that could be wishful thinking on my part as I'm heading down tomorrow for a short stay.

Water gin clear, a little grass about 100 yds out, millions of small fish beneath the pier.

Thanks for the information, i'm so glad. This will be my fourth year and my Mom's first time on the gulf. We usually come in September but my son couldn't miss school this year, so we are coming early.

June Grass. Been there pretty much all summer. Never have I seen it stick around an entire summer.

Gosh, it's so dark, it almost looks like an oil spill. Heading down next week and hoping it clears so my buddy from Myrtle Beach can see what real Paradise looks like.

Well, it appears that the summer of 2015 will go down as a June, July and August...JUNE GRASS summer. I may be incorrect in saying this but I do not remember ever seeing a full summer engulfed in this stuff for such an extended period of time. Oh sure, there have been the clear days but overall, this entire summer that stuff has been either in full swing or lurking to come in at the next WSW/SW wind.

I am looking at the water right now and I know there have been storms but now it is just nasty. I feel for those there that were wanting to have the good, clear water.

I don't have any memory of a full summer of June Grass either, P'kid. And it is STILL out there...the water has just been so calm that it has mostly settled on the bottom, for now.

Yes! It's only been within the past 2 weeks that the water has been clear enough to get good video. The whole summer was pretty much lost. But I've gotten some good stuff these past couple of weeks, I just have to edit/shorten it and post it.
