@unclejohn - Funny you mention that I tried two different setups, I stepped up my leader to 40# test, and I actually caught the MAC on a clip. Their eyesight isn't as good as albies, But after I got the first one I went back later to see if I can still get into them, but I changed my setup.
In the morning, I just had 8' avid with 30# braid line, setup was too big. But hell, what did I know..
Tried 7' setup, 20# braid, still 40# leader tied to swivel or you can direct tie, (Alberto / fg / uni-uni whatever) - then I switched to surgeons end loop. I also tied a teaser on at night and didn't have one in the morning.
I was exclusively fishing hogy epoxy jigs, (pink / Albie crack)
I should bring a lightweight 10' rod for distance
