I sold 270# right off the top in the first 24 hours I was back so I didn't filet them all as I typically do. Therefore, I wasn't able to photo them all as I typically do, but man... I PHUCKING KILLED IT. Over 20 tilefish, many over 10#; over 20 Snowy grouper, many way over 10#; 3 big red grouper up to 15#; a mutton way over 10#; a Scamp way over 10#; a Queen Snapper over 10#; a blackbelly rosefish. It was productive, but the pictures suck...

Good pictures. Glad you had a good trip, my ESPN was telling me you needed a break. ;)

Nice haul of a bunch of different types of fish. By the looks of them you were fishing in pretty deep water in the Gulf. What species of fish is big eyed little guy in the 5th photo down?

Down to only 900' this trip. Manual... no electrics for me the poor man.

5th photo is a Black Belly Rosefish.

The Rosefish looks like a cartoon rendition.

Awesome to see your haul. And even more awesome considering that's only a fraction of it.

Melampus : when you are dropping your bait/lure down 900' how do you feel the bite, that's a lot of line out! What size braided line and terminal tackle do you use for fishing those depths?

BIKEMAN <> Carefully with focus. 8-)

I cheap out with a 4/0 Senator w/50#braid on a 9' 130# blank. I'm the only one who cranks manual; :twisted: maybe one other guy every once in awhile, for only a little while. Everyone else brings Diawa Tanacom Bulls (1000 or 750) with a car battery.

It's like fishing cod & tilefish on the George's Bank up by you.
