He was deep dropping a green and silver 10-12oz diamond jig to 400-600ft. We got a yellow and blackfin tunas.. All bigeyes were caught deep jigging.
I've caught one bigeye in my life, and the funny thing was that the boat crew insisted it was a yellowfin. At the time I didn't know any better, but I had some good photos of the fish & got it ID'ed later on.
Same story, was jigging @ 400ft deep
Very nice catch!
