8/27 Heartbreaker

We ran out today on the Boss Lady looking for anything that would bite. We started the day in 50 fathoms inside the Wilmington on a .5 degree temperature break and a lot of birds. It wasn’t long before a white marlin came up and ate a naked ballyhoo on the left long. After an awesome aerial display we got a clean release. We got the lines back in quickly and had another white come up behind the teaser for a look but never ate. We also managed to put two Mahi in the box then things slowed down.
We made out way out to the West Wall of the Canyon and marked a lot of bait all day but couldn’t get a bite. Finally we get whacked by a big blue (easy 500 plus pounds) that dumped a 50W. We chased the fish for awhile before it made an erratic turn and got caught on the running gear. That was a heartbreaker, and the remainder of the day brought no better luck as we didn’t get another bite.
