Default Nipple 7/12 Report

Future brother in law came in town with sister and was dying to try and catch some "offshore" fish. With schedule conflicts, Sunday was the only option. With 1-2s forecasted, things were looking good. But with good water 150plus miles offshore, things weren't looking optimum as my range is limited in may sailfish 2360. So, as any weekend warrior would do, planned to hit the nipple and troll the 100 fathom line to the southwest and at best just have a nice day "playing the game". Well, things took a turn for the worse when I checked the weather buoy at 3am and winds were 17 mph with 2.3 foot seas at a 3 second interval! Well, heads pretty hard and an obvious glutton for punishment we allowed the down sea run out of Orange Beach fool us till we hit the nipple and realized just how sloppy it was. And Ofcourse the water was not much better than Mobile Bay! Skip to the good part......things began calming around 11:00 am. About 11:30am drag starts to sing that beautiful tune!! I'm thinking Wahoo, so I let one of the guest have the rod. As fish is steadily taking drag at a manageable rate, we clear all lines and prepare to boat a fish. As the fish gets to the boat, we begin to see color. Not the silver color as expected, but more of a brown. Before my brain could catch a gear, I realize we have freakin Billfish! As a string of expletives passes my lips to the boat driver and crew, I confirmed we had a dad gum Sailfish!! Well instinct took over, I cussed the boat driver again and wired and billed the fish! As I grabbed the bill, 2 things happened immediately!! 1. The hook came out and 2. That fish went ape $hit and damn near shook my arms off!! Thank goodness my bro in law has the whole thing on video!! After boating the fish for pics and safely releasing the marvelous savior of what was going to be logged as a really bad idea, we high fives, hollered and hooted, and drank celebratory beers!! I then explained to my clueless Texas guest what a freaken accomplishment he just achieved!! We then followed with a mahi and a couple of Bonita before heading North for another severe pounding! What a freakin awesome trip!!!
