    "Smoker" King 30lb off Pompano

    Another great morning. Sunny, wind was down no Surf... Perfect! As soon as I got to 150ft my gog gets slammed! I knew it was a "smoker" by the run it took. 20 minutes later when I got him to the yak I was in 300ft! Heck of a fight. Decided to release him ( hopefully someone catches him this weekend !) I estimated him to be about 30 to 35lbs. Around 10:30 decided to call it a day ( never caught anything after 10:30 anyways ) When I got to 85ft and my rod goes off again. This time I hear a big splash, so Iím thinking Sail... but knew quickly it was another "Smoker" when it ripped off 200 yards in a matter of a few seconds. After another long flight I got him to the yak and decided to keep this one because of the way it was hooked. He ended up being 48in and 30lbs Great day... A lot of "Smokers" out there to be caught this weekend.

    Nice work. Today I got bit off twice and pulled the hooks on two big fish. Thinking they were kings too. Same area you picked your fish up. Glad you managed to get your fish to the yak, I wasn't that fortunate.

    Reel nice fish. Are they all coming on live bait? Any one catching them on artificials (trolling or jigging)?
