They should run deep drop bottom trips for people who want it

I have never seen a trip advertised as deep drop bottom. Maybe a freezer filler, but not a tue deep drop, lets explore 600 ft. I'd love to go on one

Here on the east coast deep drop fishing is extreme. 7-800' for Tilefish, Barrel Fish, and Wreck fish. Fishermen are using electric and manual reels.

Deep drop swordfishing is happening in 1600-1800'.

Its an obsession.

Been on a few Exploratory Research Trips for Science as a volunteer at the edge of the Continental Shelf fishing in 800ft....skipper had to back down the vessel into the current just to maintain a manageable vertical line angle....interesting trips!
