what did you catch the AP on?I was on this last trip and it was still a lot of fun, caught my first African Pompano and a Mutton Snapper. Two fish that I have never caught before, along with catching a couple, what we believe were Black Snake Mackerels while bottom fishing at night. The crew were very nice and helpful throughout the entire trip and made it really fun also. Everyone working on this boat works really hard. Have to give a shout out to the guys cooking! It's hard to believe you can get a burger that good so far out in the Ocean.
you have to set the hook well With the raptors learned the hard way last tripBKK makes some solid products, their Raptor Z series are one that you can fish with confidence as is their Viper 41 series also.
The Raptors Z 2/0's would probably be considered 3/0 with a lot of other brands, as you can see in the pic. View attachment 123029

Viper 41's are not quite as heavy, but strong also.
