Default 09/22 -09/23 Destin to Rigs & Back

We left Destin for the rigs on Saturday afternoon. Found the temperature breaks per the chart along with the color (no color charts available on Hilton's last week) but saw nothing other than flyers that made us want to stop. Good blue water at the closest rigs but no action. Nothing feeding on top. No overnight sword bites. Stopped on the troll back in around the elbow when we ran over a very large reef unknown at least to us......so we did pick up some meat. Frustrating when the conditions look right but the fish don't cooperate. Seems the more I learn about offshore fishing the harder it gets. I'm beginning to I think I had better luck once upon a time when I just set out without a plan.

Every time I plan a trip anticipating crushing them, we generally are disappointed.

But the "Sperm of the moment" trips usually pay off.

Just don't try so hard that it's frustrating not fun.

Default Trip

Sorry to hear you had a rough trip Altimetry is key out in the gulf everything to the west of the spur should suck now and to the east should be better all the way into shallow water..I have found that In the gulf altimetry plays a large role in the tuna and mahi bite not soo much with the wahoo they seem to be very structure oriented in the gom

Look at the bright side, weather was great, light wind, and you had a nice long boat ride..

A few large fish, good friends and cold beer, life is good...

Well....maybe I'm not reading the altimetry chart right. Looks like it's in the green....which I thought was ok.

I thought blue was great, green was iffy, yellow bad, and red was desert.
