Default MSviking trolling the steps 9/28

Went to down to troll the blue water that has been on the steps lately, had enough time to make 1/2 day trip to the nipple on Friday. Friday I took Duane from Sportsman's and Saturday I had my brother, forum favorite Woody, and two friends Steven and Barret. Caught a nice wahoo and had a break off due to line being wrapped around outrigger clip. Water was a calm (too calm) blue to blended blue, but fairly lifeless on Friday at the Nipple.

Saturday we ran out the steps and caught 3 nice wahoo in open blue water. Towards the end of the day we ran over to Petronius and on the first lap around we hook up to a blue on the long rigger Pakula Mouse. I am amazed we caught the fish as the boat was on one side of the rig and marlin the other! Not sure how we did not break off, but thankful we did not as the blue made the day.

Ocean was flat and rain was very scattered, all and all a great day to be on the water. Final tally 4 wahoo and 1 blue.

Friday's wahoo



Three wahoo from Saturday

We caught the wahoo on a little bit of everything, on on a purple yozuri bonito, one on a Ahai P, one on a Makaira Lena and one on a Pakula Mouse. The marlin was caught on the Pakula Mouse as well (long rigger)

they are Ahai pussy, but on the lure body they say Ahai P. I rig all my trolling lures the same way, single hook stiff rig. In the case of the smaller bodied Ahai Pussy, I use an 8 or 9/0 Mustad 7691 with cable inside the skirt, then 200 lb still Moi Moi of about 12' for leader. I rig the hook as far back in the skirt as is IGFA legal. The Ahai P is one of my favorite shotgun baits.

Awesome day!

I saw you were heading that push that Hilton's showed and thought about doing the same.

We fished nipple/131 area with no love.

Got to fish where the fish are!

They were there for you! Nice report.

It has been our hands down best producer and 100% or damn close hook up ratio with double hook stiff rig.
