My dad and I, and a friend, recently had a great weekend fishing the Nantucket Big Game Battle. We fished down south at the canyons on day 1 of the tournament, which was on Friday.
We departed Nantucket Harbor at 2:30 am and set a heading for Hydrographer Canyon. After making pretty good time, we set lines in at the tip of the canyon at approximately 6 am.
The spread consisted of 4 spreader bars off the riggers, a marlin lure down the center, a weighted daisy chain off the flat, and a Nomad DTX Minnow (pictured below) off the other flat.
