    Keith,
    What depths have you had success at? I’ve done well in Monterey Bay at 240-260’, but haven’t dropped then outside Morro yet and was planning to do so this week.

    Thanks for the report, Keith. I agree with your assessment to slow troll a Mac down deep and on the surface where there’s signs of life. I’ll be out looking later towards the end of this week.
