This is my first post on BD, but I was also on this trip. Pretty epic. I also may have been the guy who let you borrow my setup, but my name isn't Alex haha. Either way, it's always nice to help each other out when we can. I hooked up both my bluefin on the retrieve. Fish were between 180 and 320 feet deep. First fish I hooked in the eyeball with a 250g shimano flat fall with a 13/0 VMC 7264 hook re rigged with 500lb kevlar assist cord tied directly to a the solid ring (the jig itself is attached by split ring). After I let *I assume this gentleman* borrow my setup, the crew gave me their setup with the worn out daiwa SK with 0 paint on it. Got smashed on the retrieve on my first drop. After that, I was done fishing and just enjoyed watching everyone else hook up and land fish. Here are some of my pictures.
