Default elbow room nipple report

bonita dan invited me to go trolling out by the nipple / elbow yesterday...awesome flat seas made for nice quick comfortable ride out..started seeing numerous flyers once past the edge... put lines in south of the nipple and started trolling ..

about an hour later the starboard rigger lets go and it seems like fish on ..then nothing ..tried dropping back...reeling in... no joy.. then the port rigger goes..same thing...

we went back and forth a few times and while checking the baits i see a big crash on the port rigger bait, rod is pulling drag... get to it and ... and... nothing...

have no clue what it was... whitey?... whatever ... was just not finding the hook...

water out there was pretty nice... very clean with pockets of blue... flyers galore...but no rips, weeds.. as we started trolling back north the downrigger rod was tapping out sos...what the heck?? we are in a jellyfish jubilee ... hundreds of them ...we picked up lines and ran back in and north of the edge we ran across spots where you could have walked on jellies...all about the size of softballs - soccer balls..

not sure why things were so slow out there...the tide seemed mostly non-existent.. neap?.. but seas were flat flat flat...

Yep I'll confirm the bite was not on yesterday. We trolled from NE of the nipple down past 131 and then back up the west wall, 1 brief hookup with drag screaming, but no fish to show for it, and another bill came behind a bait and whacked it a few times. Tons of fliers, no bait balls, no debris or formed lines out to about 41 miles south. Looking forward to the white bite to turn on.

Glad to hear ya' got out (and back) with ol' bonita dan. Look at the bright side, flat seas, a few beers and the elbow room made it back in under her own power. That's a win all the way around!

thanks for report.

sounds like it was the perfect set up, however the waterborne aquatic participants didn't get or heed the memo that you were coming and brought snacks.
