    Pompano-SAILFISH & KING 6/15/12

    Paddled out with Capt.Yak. Headed straight to the wrecks in 250ft to try and jig up an AJ but not much action going on. Reeled the jigs up and tossed out some live bait on the down rigger set at 60ft. As I start to head shallow in about 215ft I get my first hit, 41 inch King. Skinny guy but had the length. As I get into 115ft my down rigger pops and my reel starts screaming, up comes the sail. 5 minutes later I land this beautiful sailfish.

    Nice! Doug told me later that morning what you caught and we were pumped to get out there with some livies. Too bad the storms rolled in 5 minutes after we got out there.
