Default Hot Fishing between Nipple and Elbow

Got you to look! It was fishing not catching, but an interesting day! It was hot 110+ degree index so it was hot.

---- Hoping to catch one of our Nieces first billfish
---- Saw 3 Whale Sharks
---- Tons of bait
---- lots of Tuna, mainly BFT, but some mix of Bonita, BFT and YFT
---- plenty of birds with Tuna
---- saw 3 Whale Sharks, 1st time for me to see them that close in
---- Water beyond 100 Fathoms looked pretty good but not much life
---- Water inside of 100 Fathoms greened up but really held bait
---- Found a push forming in 700'+ feet of water with bait, Tuna and the day's 3rd Whale Sharks at the end of our fishing window

Results?

-----caught 6 BFT, 2 Bonita, 1 Shark
-----saw a Lazy Blue Marlin, it took one swipe at the 'Hoo like it was full and it's Thanksgiving Night
-----lost good sized Dorado (short strike and barely hooked?) and decent YFT (sharks ate YFT)
---- sounded slow, did hear 2 other boats seeing billfish right after we raised the Lazy Rat Blue, when that happened I thought we were about to have a good bite, but it didn't happen, but it was was quiet on the billfish front

Hated leaving bait and Tuna near push at 4PM but had to head back to Destin. I bet the Bertram 45 or 51 that came into to the area just before we left hung around 'til something happened.

Tight Lines! We'll go after it again on Sun the 31st.
