Default GET SHORTY : Day trip to the Nipple

Was lucky enough to be able to head down to OB for THX Giving this year minus the dogs and our daughter( Grandma was in town) . Saturday was forecasted to be nice so Reggie and his kids and me and my wife went on a one day fishing mission to the Nipple to see if we could scare up a wahoo and doo some deep drop prospecting.

The weather was near flat and calm winds with zero current made deep dropping a total pleasure this time. We arrived at 7:30 am in 700 feet of water and proceeded to catch fish everywhere we tried. We fished a area about 2 miles by 2 miles and found mud bottom in most places where Big Golden Tiles were living and biting.

We caught a 350 Qt cooler full of Goldens, Grey and one huge Yellowedge I caught. The funny thing about the yellowedge is , i didnt know i had a fish on till i reeled up cause my rod is so dang stiff . This yellowedge was about 30 pounds and never gave a single tug ?

We landed 5 tiles over 20 pounds and the rest were 8-15 pounds which was a great grade of fish . All ate squid at a depth of 660 to 750 feet , but trolling produced zero strikes . We tried 4 to 5 knots with rapalas and stretch 30's for NADA. Water looked off color but not bad and was 72 degrees.
