We had a good time out at the Tanner bank . Water was a clean blue 69 degrees . Shot a few bft in the 70 -160 pound range . Had a blowup on the Ca flyer rig that did not stick . Plenty of Cattle boats out there . Fish staying around 140 feet all day . Some would come up to us at 60 . Also found A Mahi at the Mack bank . One Yellow at the 9 Fathom . Only one Foamer seen the entire trip . 100 miles both ways , desert . Got back yesterday . Have to go long .

    So you were shooting them at 140'? How did you get them up? Nice work, pics?
    No when you dive on schools that are 140' they often but not always come up to check you out. From the post it sounds like he shot them at ~60

    Everyone gets them up the same way, with a bungee line attached to high-floatation buoys. You slide the bungee line through a clip on the buoy to get the buoy progressively closer to the fish, bringing him up. Most fish are then shot again to secure.
