    .....Sorry.... I thought you said "giant squid".... 3" - 5" ...? Not working on the KITE for sure. Feed the mackerel in the bait tank. Save for calicos. Unless your talking the tuna stomach content size?

    The one time I brought the jumbo squid we didn't make it to the grounds due to weather. Hopefully we get some good insight!
    Going Sunday night 2 day on the Endeavor. Plan on bringing a couple. Hope to make good use of them

    If you dont fish them during your kite rotation..... set yourself up a "Deep Drop" Swordie outfit.... with the second one. I Guarantee.... ITS GONNA GET INTERESTING. NIGHT DROP TANNNER BANK. Click "on" ... double "rail strapped" .... down at the "thermocline" . Have it down.... BUT DON'T WALK FAR. Good Luck.

    Good luck !!! Bring some heavy knife jigs 300-500 grams for night fishing ! We did pretty good from 12 am to 5 am on large model bf on our trip. We had 30 from 120-180 and 3 over 200 all on knife jigs at night …
