Default 5/5 Rig Trip

Went out on the first rig trip for me on my buddies boat on Friday 5/5. Left out of OB about 1:00 pm, with three buddies, captain and myself. Ran straight out just north of Petronius, put lines in around 4:00 trolled around the rig then SW to the Marlin rig and back to Petronius just before dark without one knockdown. Water was a little green. At dark we eased off the rig and ate a bite and soaked some live baits. I got a little too comfortable and fell asleep, had three yellowfin come through and get hooked up but they were unable to get any in the boat. Woke up after all the commotion around midnight and eased back to the rig and jigged a few blackfin. I caught one decent one, a few smaller ones, and a shark. Probably caught 4-5, sharks got thick and we had enough chunk bait so we eased back off the rig and set back out some live baits. No other bites the rest of the night. Was ready to troll at first light, back to the rig and trolled around it. Action was decent for the first few minutes of daylight, caught one keeper yellowfin, 2 other shorts, big hardtail, and a cuda. Also hooked into either a big tuna or blue marlin, buddy fought it for 45 minutes or so on a 50W before it chaffed the hook. Would have loved to have seen what it was. Anyway by that time the sun was up good and we figured the gig at the rig was up so we put out the high speed rigs and made our way North. Got into better water as we made our way NE but then ran into some scattered grass just North of the elbow. Decided to pick them up and run in. Not many fish to bring home but we had a great time and I learned a lot. Looking forward to getting back out there.
