Default Today near the nipple

It sucked. We didn't fish real long, but we put in a good 5 hours or so of trolling and it was very slow. We hooked a 200-225lb Blue east of the Nipple but ended up pulling hooks. Did catch a huge remora on a wahoo plug. That should've been our cue to hang it up.

Beautiful out there, just not super fishy.

Doesn't sound too bad if you hooked up with a blue in that close especially these days.

^^ yeah I know, I just like being a spoiled, unappreciative brat at times. It was so nice out there it really didn't matter much in the end.

Hey at least you got out there and brought back excellent table fare! your report is about identical to my last three trips out there. They were so boring I skipped posting due to nothing to add.

Hopefully things will turn on with the Whites before fall.

The old hook and place theorem can make for a boring day of fishing but at least you hooked one and to top it off you had a great day of camaraderie.

I think it will Robert. I think water temps need to drop a few degrees and maybe this front is the ticket. I'll be out a few days next week so hopefully it'll turn on.
