Default First deep drop trip

Me and my BIL went today on our first deep drop trip. We didnít do too bad and had a good time. Caught several long tail sea bass and three snowy grouper and one yellow edge grouper. Not bad for the first trip, around 630 foot of water and just drifted our area and had a ball. Electric reels are the only way to go!!

that's the most seabass i've seen caught on a trip. usually we get one maybe two but damn how did y'all catch all those. damn good to eat, too.
did y'all get any tile using lights?

Caught one blue line tile, we were using a light and the glow in the dark hook covers. BIL was using whole squid and I was using cut cigar minnows. We both caught the same amount on the bait.

It was definitely a good time and we will try it again. The biggest grouper was caught on a whole squid so I may go for that next time. We just drifted and let the weight bounce on the bottom. If the weight doesnít stick in the bottom, your in the wrong spot.

what i hate is the current. that tells you what size lead you need.
most time i caught fish let it drag less and keep the line going out.
hellofa lot of fun.
