Looks like the Mississippi River.

went to the Nipple on a charter boat 8 days ago. Caught some normal sized fish and water was not real blue. Been catching just as good of fish in 130ft water as is 240ft lately.

What kind of fish did you catch at the nipple?

I am aware of how high the river is right now just got off of it Wednesday. I guess I am just doing some wishful thinking really wanting to get out after some pelegics.

Caught normal sized Red snapper (9lb-14lb), Many AJ's we had to throw back and brought in some decent Kings on the trolling side after drop fishing plus some useless Bonita (did cut for bait). No wahoo or bill fish or grouper even.
Tried a variety of live baits free and Carolina rigged. Plus squid-sardine's-Cigs dead. Yellow color trolling setup was only thing they would bite.

I can only relay what I was told. Captain said we were fishing the nipple? 12 hours on boat but bunch of trolling and dropped in a few places also. Was 200ft-240ft deep and I could see that on screen. he said we were a few miles away from where it dropped to 2000ft deep? I have never had my own boat past about 150ft deep and normally 120ft deep.

Was for sure expecting bigger fish and some different species.
