Default Bluewater around the nipple?

Brought the boat over to OB this past weekend. Thinking about making a quick family run out to the nipple. Is the bluewater pretty close right now or should we head West? Thanks for any info.

True blue water is a long, long way out right now. Like Horn mountain far, or even farther. Most folks who fished memorial day went 100+ miles. That said, there is some pretty water at the nipple right now, and a decent little current push from the south to the north up over the ledge, which at the right time of day should produce.

I was out at the rigs last weekend. Don't even bother stopping at Petronis. Marlin was decent, although no YF, or at least not one that I could catch. There was a billfish caught at the Marlin, I believe.

Your other best bet, or at least it was last week, is about 25-30 miles south/southeast of the dumping grounds. There is a nice temp break out there and current push.

So, it's up to you whether you want 35 miles or 75 miles (at least). Depends on what you are after.

What defines "blue water" or "true blue water"? I'm thinking about making my first long run if we have another streak of good weather and calm seas. Would be departing Pensacola pass. Can I find good action within 35 miles? Thanks in advance!

Maybe. I'm not sure anyone fished last weekend due to weather, but the weekend before water at the nipple (about 35 miles) was pretty, there was plenty of bait, but we didn't have a single knockdown. That was 10 days and a tropical storm ago now, so no one will know until they go.

In general, starting around now through September, the nipple should start to produce a good billfish bite. They usually show up there when it starts to get hot.

Dont look at it now . The Mississippi is what you'll be fishing all the way out to 85 miles . Water is mud !!

It does this every year , Mississippi and mobile dumps so much fresh water it turns our gulf top layer into mud . I suggest subscribing to Hilton's offshore or another to keep track of where not to go .
