More than likely a part of a GPS Coordinate, with a given port it's usually the second two numbers.

Yes, that would be the minutes of lattitude (middle set of numbers: xx.XX.xxx)

since the south shore generally runs SW-NE how far that is offshore depends on what port you are fishing out of. At Olcott (my home port), port is approximately at the xx.20.3xx or so line, so 26-27 would be 6-7 miles offshore.

As you head East, those numbers get far closer to shore.

Problem with VHF during derby time is that when one guy says he's catching fish at 35 down over 50 FOW, a crowd may form in that area. The other day, I heard a guy on the radio tell his charter buddy that he was cathing them at 15 over 25 off the Genny. As I was in 25 FOW and there was no one else within eye-shot, I realized he was out to the 25 line (latitude) which is over 300 FOW.

Love codes. "Oh what a tangled web we weave..." ;):):rolleyes:
