    Something someone said about sleeper sharks a couple days ago got me thinking back to an old thread I read somewhere on here where someone said its possible to catch a sleeper shark off socal.. Id expect them to be deep water dwellers.. Have any of you guys ever caught one in your lifetimes or know someone who did? Wondering what dwells down in the mostly unexplored deep waters off california...

    I was listening to a lets talk hookup episode from a couple months ago, I think a captain from one of the Dana Warf sportboats was talking about catching some of them while deep rockfishing.

    The sleepers I have seen were caught on longline at night. Always over deeper water..
