    Best catch of the year. Wahoo takes the prize for a fish hooked out of a kayak off the East Coast.

    I dunno about swords. All the sword fishing I ever done is at night, in 1000+ feet, with water lit up attracting bait, full sized rigged squid, glow sticks, line counters, ballon floats, massive lead weights, 80w reels, long hours in the night drinking beer, bean bag chairs with guys half a sleep telling stories of the that one girl in the past you dont ever talk about.. A mess really, but oh so worth it when you get one (sword, not the girl). Now setting up in a yak for it, uhhh errr yikes. Now i dunno if if swords will come shallow (meaning less than 500 feet) but I thought they were deep water valley and structure fish, so in my mind jsut getting out to sword fish waters especial at night, no go safety standard with out a boat standing by.

    re: Eric D
    -might be fun off a mothership...still take on the fight from the yak, but have the boat haul you out and keep you company? Oh yeah -and to help haul all that meat back to shore.
    Put rod in holder, kick back and wait for all chaos to break loose!
    Anyone??

    Oh with the right safety i am so down. It would be a serious drift way out in the way dark. With a mothership on calm night it would be cool. Get 4 or 5 yaks with a line each in the water, have a full rigged squid with a green glow stick shoved in its tube on each. Line count each yak to the different depths. Get pottymouths smooth jazz going, kick your feet up and wait. I dont know that i have a real that would work for any really decent sword.

    I'd have to rig a truck wench or something -LOL
    That'd be sooo coool

    absolutely awesome catch rob!!!!!

    ummm, swording from a kayak?? not the brightest idea i've ever seen running across this forum; there are just a few too many variables (or is there some sort of subsection for gripes that i don't know about that I should post this on.. :shrug).

    With gasoline draws on. And most likely will come out unharmed with perfectly cooked fish...

    Great fish! When you got it to your yak did you gaff it or what?
  • PottymouthPottymouth Posts: 1,547 Officer
    Hell yea. Spear gaff ended it quick.
