Default How far to good blue water?

Anyone been past the Edge and found any blue water? I don't have a subscription to any good services for such, and trust first-hand advice.
Thanks!

Hilton's is showing a good line of blue water starting about 8 miles E/SE of the Nipple and running SW to the Steps and Petronius and Ram Powell.

Based on yesterday evening's shot closest blue water is about 43 nm SE of Perdido Pass...about 5 miles SE of 131 Hole.

I looked at Hiltons Offshore chart archive for the past few years, it doesn't look like blue water comes in close (less than 50nm) very often. Is it fairly typical to have to travel 80-100nm to find fish?
