Default GET SHORTY report 28-30

Left out at 9 pm on Thursday night from Sportsmans , arrived at the marlin at 3 am and started catching blk fin right away and at dawn saw a few yft jump but it got quiet real quick : the water was purple and clean but the current was ripping , we tried everything and decided to head south to horn .

Same deal at horn : heavy heavy current and the fish were at 500 feet where we couldn't get down to them. Moved on to Nakika where we dodged storm after storm but picked up a giant dolphin fish in open water on the troll around 40 pounds. We made it to nakika with no other strikes and had even worse current there which made it pretty dangerous to be close by the rig . We fished for a little bit but it was a bust so we moved to the drill ship near by and had the same luck , nothing but bad current .

As darkness fell we moved back to nakika and still couldn't catch anything so we moved north back to the inshore rigs and fished ram Powell and beer can were we finally picked up some fish at each , nothing great but we did mange 8 bigeye , 15 blkfin and 2 small yellowfin before day light on heavy jigs to make it down.

After daylight the bite died and we moved east toward the steps , and along the way the water went from purple to dirty to clean green once at the steps . As soon as we got in 600 ft off the steps we hooked a white marlin on a blk Bart rum cay candy , which proceeded to do what hot whitey's do , not stay in the water and after a nice run jumped off.

After that we trolled up 5 nice dolphin fish and at the point everyone wanted to deep drop : so I got us set up n ready and tried my best to hold in heavy current which made fishing tough . We were picking at the tiles and nice yellowedge when my buddy hooks up in the sink and shallow : this fish was tearing up the tb1000 so we shut down the electric and went manual . After 30 min up comes a nice little mako shark of all things and we killed it as it so so tangled in the rig it was jacked up , man did that fish taste good !

We fished till 4 and hit the barn at Vikings warp speed to get back for the weigh in where we watched the winning marlin get hoisted along with some other nice fish . Sure wish we had fished it as our dolphin was worth a cool 23k but we probably wouldn't have caught it had we entered

That is one wild report. I admire your durability and stick-tuitivness. (is that even a word?)

You guys keep fishing till you are tired and then just keep on fishing.
