deep drop

 Been a bit slack getting this one up. took advanatge of the good weather pre the blow. been out a couple of times on mine and mates boat, getting the sounder to read well finally. both have airmar 1kw transducers but reading significantly better on the furono than my lowrance. always thought transducer made most the difference but clearly not. found some new ground about 1nm in closer to the ground have fished for years. same structure, being a veru steep rise from @ 200m to 220m. interestingly fish held on top of this rise, rather then theo other ground where they are at the bottom. the school is massive, made up of grey band, pinks (XL), a deep water tusky (XL), and nannies (okay size). biggest GB went close to 40kg and the range from 5kg+.

 Well done . Some huge banded there. Some great meals on the way for sure. 

We're you running electrics or toughening it out using regular reels.

Fished 200 before with regular reels and it's a long way to wind
