    45 miles out of egmont

    Went out with a buddy on his bad a** 35 foot center console. First stop at 20 miles or so and reeled in a couple keeper reds. Bait was northern mackerel live shrimp and live 2 inch greenbacks. Second stop was around 45 miles out and let me tell you the scamp were on fire. I cant remember the last time I caught scamp like this. Every shrimp down barely made it to the bottom. As you can see in the video there are no shortage of them at this spot..... Thanks rich for the idea of the go pro to send down deep. This is going to be very valuable in future on how best to fish my spots... hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving. And sorry it my first time editing video.

    It's weird, cause just in the past 2 years i've been seeing tons of small scamps while spearfishing, and have never before seen them in prior years...I'm curious as to why this influx has happened..

    Great video and great report Drew. How did you manipulate the camera to get the footage? Did you just put it on a rod and drop it down?
