Default Deep dropping

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for some information about deep dropping. I've gone out 4 times so far trying to figure it out. However I seem to not be able to find the mud for tiles. I've been in waters between 500-800ft. I have a garmin 4212 with a gsd 24 with a 1000w transducer. I've dropped for a few hours each time. Can anyone give me a general area or if you're feeling particularly kind to give me a number or two that would be great too. thanks guys any help would be great.

Thanks to all the members and mods for a great forum.

Nipple/ 131 hole area. You don't even need a bottom machine for tiles. Won't see anything in the mud.

Be sure to use some sort of deep drop light! If you don't you might as well piss into the wind. I've also used google maps to locate mounds and holes in the gulf floor.

I've heard this from a lot of DD fishermen. When I went with the Yankee Capts this spring to Pulley Ridge, Capt. Gregg insisted that lights were a waste of time and created lots of extra tangles. Some use them anyway, some did not. I couldn't tell any difference in the catch.

Makes one wonder how those deep water fish ever find enough to eat? Maybe they carry a flashlight?

There's nothing to catch out their. None of this stuff works anymore.
A man would be better off just mingo fishing.
