    My Extreme kayak experience.

    Yea the conditions sucked but it is called the extreme offshore kayak tour..
    I went out deep 500-600 ft and picked up the only bft caught.( I did a Randy ). I fished shallow as well.. Ended up w/ third a Hobie quest 11, some costas. LTD got 2nd a Hobie revo 13 some costas. I had a blast. Yea it was rainy windy and crappy condition and I really was disappointed on my day performance but it is anyone's game. First place was Eric D boy. ( I don't remember his name) but he landed a massive king.. Eric got the only sail of the day. And won a sweet trip. First got a 2 G's and for biggest pelagic he won the paddle board. And costa's. And I got to give it up to Joe Doug and crew. They did a great job...
    Also big props to all the PA that actually said f$&@ it I'm launching.

    Congrats again bro.
    It was a pretty rough day, pun intended.
    I gotta tag along with you on another Dania trip soon, looks like I still have much to learn, but hey at least I didn't roll this time haha.

    Way to go on the kayak win, I only went to 350ft hoping that would be deep enough for tuna, it wasn't. Were you jigging open water or a ledge to catch that little bft?

    I didn't have much trouble getting mine out, just had to watch the surf and time it right. Jump in and paddle, forget the pedals until you're past the breakers. That said, mine is a 12.

    Chriss u know ur more than welcome!!!! Yea I did it in a 12 as well. I actually think it's easier to paddle tru the surf with the seat in the high position.

    Devo yes I was jigging in open water. No ledge nor wreck.. Did try a few wrecks but they were tight lipped.

    Tight lipped is an understatement
