I’ve been giving sp a whirl recently.I’d be glad to meet some of you guys. I learned this technique while station in Guam and fished all sorts of pelagic fish to include yellowfin, wahoo, dogtooth, mahi, amberjack, and deep bottom fish like monchong. I’ve started fishing out here on my boat and have primarily targeted rockfish due to the season but plan to try for tuna and yellowtail. In Guam we hardly ever fished the bottom for Pelagic fish because it was 3-4000’ deep. I would drop to 600’ and jig up for the yellowfin and they might hit on the drop or down deep while jigging up. I use a sea anchor to slow my drift which helps with using lighter setups for deeper drops.
Anyways, we should start a SPJ group that does meetups to discuss techniques and meet like minded fishermen. My current setups:
-Ocea jigger 2000 with pe2 on an infinity ocea jigger rod rated for 150-500g
-Ocea jigger 3000 with pe3 on an infinity ocea jigger rod rated for 300-750g
-Ocea jigger 2000 with pe3 on a Phoenix titan medium heavy rod

Like your idea of getting together sometime.
Maybe some of us could meet at a launch ramp in sd bay or mission bay and fish La Jolla or Pt Loma.
