Deep Drop - Blue Eye Trevella

Managed to get out wide weekend before last. Really starting to hone in my deep drops and sounder readings. I’ve had success on all ventures but one over the last half a dozen or more trips. No Marks, just tips from some fellas on here. So appreciate the advice fellas, as I’m seeing good results now.

Went out to 200s to some reliable Puka grounds, decided with all the Blue Eye being caught, to give the 300-400s a crack and found a big school, where my 2.5kg sinkers didn’t even hit the bottom before being devoured by a string of blue eye. Beautiful morning out, quick run back at 35knts. Can’t beat it.

biggest was 19.5kg. Loaded with small bait fish and octopus.
