Default Between the Nipple and the Elbow looking very fishy yesterday!

We made a late day short trip to the south side of the nipple yesterday and couldn't keep a line in the water! We only came home with 4 blackfins and 3 skip jacks but we got out there really really late and didn't think we would see so much out there yesterday! We showed up about 4 miles south of the nipple planning on heading towards the Elbow as most reports lately have pointed in that direction. We put lines in the water and and started trolling. It was still a little choppy from the wind but laying down and we very quickly started seeing nice small patches of grass. Then we started seeing the turtles! Lot's and lot's of turles. We saw at least 15 of the largest sea turtles I have ever seen! Then two rods double over and we are hooked up! Lose one and put one in the box, Biggest Skip Jack I have seen before. Lines back in the water and the short right goes ape shit and dumped 3/4 of spool on a 30 W LRSA with about 14 lbs of drag set! Not sure what it was because as soon as we had all the lines cleared and before this fish stopped running it came unpined! Lines back in the water and a couple minutes go by and now we are seeing tuna skying all around us! We start throwing the top water and BOOM hook right up but immediately come undone!!!! Lose one more and they dissapear! After that we caught a couple Blackfin on topwater a couple more skip jacks and a baracuda. We had one more really strong strike that didn;t stick as well and the leader was roughed up about 3 feet up from the hook so I figured that one was a bill of some sort. The water color was greenish blue but very clear considering. In a lot of years fishing the nipple and out to the floaters this was as fishy of a day on the water as I have seen in a long while and I wished we had gotten out there at 6am and been more preppared. This was sort of a last minute half day go play day that could've been much much better had we been on our A game! If your debating heading out that way GO!!!! FYI most strikes were on either naked ballyhoo or fake ballyhoo behind a chugger head.

I am running out to the Nipple Wednesday for a day trip. Sounds like the 3/4 spool dump was a wahoo. What were you dragging and what speed were you running? Was the grass matted or scattered and annoying?

We are going to work hard for the Mahi and the Who!! Any tips you can give me, I will appreciate it very much.
