Deep Drop Fishing
Deep drop fishing is primarily done using electric reels so that we don't have to 'wind up' from those depths. We use one of our Lingred Pitman SV1200 or a Beastmaster to get the job done.
The deep drop rig is a single line set with 6-12 hooks. Sent down to 400-1200ft. with chunks of dead bait, typically blackfin tuna or squid. A weight is used to get the rig down more quickly and keep the set straight. We watch out for the bites and within a few minutes we can bring up a full string loaded with snappers and other deep water fish.
