Well, haven't been out in a couple of weeks. Work! Talked wife into going out this morning. Offshore breeze this morning 6:00am. Went out to 140 north of pier. Set up 6:45. 6 color orange crush spoon 10 color other side with glow blue knight.  Braided dipsey set at 3 150' out and other side dipsey at 3 120' out. 150 had krytonite salmon candy flasher/ novacaine fly other had mongolian beef rv spoon.  Ran two down riggers one at 35ft green dolphin other with 2 color swr with down 45' so around 55' with blue dolphin spoon.  

Went on north west troll out to 170ft. Hardly marked a fish. 6 color went off on turn small fish came off after a few minute fight. Secret weapon rod went off on north east troll in 160' bounce bounce off. Other downrigger bounced funny no release didn't check for a few minutes and snapped it up and 1-2lb shaker king on. It swallowed hook and wouldn't make it. Threw it in box. Trolled into 135' hardly marking a fish. Turned boat back out. Waves picked up with still off shore breeze in 1-2 foot Chop. Changed a bunch of stuff out trying different colors and combinations.  No takers. Came in at 10:30am.

Not a great outing. Saw a few boats out further. If anyone has any suggestions,  please share. I am going out tomorrow again. Should I try deeper? 190-220 ft? Colors or combos that are working for you. 

Thanks for your input. Much appreciated.
