Default Rig Drill Ship run 11/5 - 6

Morning all,
Decided to take a day off yesterday, headed out Sunday noon out of P'cola. Ran straight to the Horn Mountain, we trolled, live dropped, and jigged on several corners with no joy!
Several boats reported not much happening in the area so we ran over the the West Neptune around 8 miles from HM. Same routing we picked off 3 BFT, nothing to brag about. Moved back to the HM and a Pipe laying ship near the Marlin. The Marlin has diving activities, so no fishing within .5 miles. Still no action.
Shutdown the motors and drifted away around 1am, but the seas picked up and we got beat up trying to rest. Decided to slow troll over to the Beer Can, circled it several time with no marks. Same thing at the Petronius.
Decided we had enough and headed to the hill.
All in all, water was was dirty green, no surface action other than dolphins hitting hard at the drill ship. We lost plenty of gear from sharks and flipper. Had a nice tuna on till flipper took him for a ride, he did graciously gave me back a HEAD!
We did test the bladder with 42 gals, man that made a huge difference.
Long day but great company with friends and family.

Thanks, was better than siting in an office all day! One day the tuna gods will bless us with a YFT.
