 went on a charter double headers before sunrise luckily we bagged out by 9 AM cause after that they shutdown, also skipper said when you catch  green eyes suggests ur close or just past ,our ledge was AT 250 - 300m.

green eyes

 green eyes are like blowies out there, dropping baits will have them around in no time, the trick is sound well,

get your drift, drop perfect so you drop on the fish, big deep ledges are usually harder than the shallower deep slopes that hold GB and puka,

having the sounder set up perfect is also a must, takes some time to get this right, 

were you fishing north or south mate? i used to spend hours/days/weeks sounding the deep depths , love it, 

somedays the fish were going off but yes they can just shut down instantly

 Can you get a decent image to sound (deep) with a 585 with 1kw through hull (M260)?

I havent got mine dialled in yet, but am keen to get out and give it a try.
