Default Sunday and Monday near the Nipple

I ran and fished near the Nipple Sunday with a couple customers on their new Grady White 306 Canyon. Fished near the 50 fathom line and just outside of it to about 500ft. Nice temp break and scattered weeds and debris. Lost a Wahoo early and picked up 3 Yellowfin from 36-50lbs mid-day. Had a lull in action but did get a small Mahi a little later on. It was getting late in the day so we did a couple bottom drops and added some nice Scamp and huge White Snapper before heading in.

I heard a lot of chatter on the radio and it seems like it was slow for most. I always find that downsizing my lures and baits is key to action this time of year.

Monday was a fun trip with my fiance Danniella on my friend Donald's boat. He brought his neighbor out with us as well. We got a pretty late start but we really didn't care. Saw a big Mako just outside Perdido Pass but didn't have anything to throw at it. Followed it for a bit and then headed on stopping for bait along the way.

We trolled for about 4 hrs and missed several good strikes. It was like my hooks were made of tire rubber, hard enough to pull on for a second and that was it. It was kind of infuriating and we saw several nice tuna blowing up on bait which makes me think that's what we may have been missing. Oh well.

After that we hit some spots near the edge for Vermillion Snapper and they were chewing pretty good. Danniella added some nice Lanes and Almacos to the box as well. Pelagics or not, we still had a ncie box of fish.

Looks like we may still have a couple weeks to get in some close-to-shore pelagics as long as the fronts don't start piling in here. Fingers crossed

Another one of the "changes". Getting real nitpicky on picture sizes.

Yeah, its a little inconvenient, must be size limit or something? Looks like a well-rounded day regardless!
