pulley ridge is too shallow. the area beyond pulley, 600 feet, is where you need to be.

there are a lot more guys out there who would rather let you borrow their wife (or anything else they have) before letting you borrow their numbers. especially deep drop #'s. good luck though.

We caught some like that in the atlantic a little while ago the depth was 1080', you probably need to go deeper than 600', they are excellent eating these averaged 15-25#.
