Pompano Sailfish (First of 2015)
Most of my friends already know I am obsessed with kayak fishing and they called me crazy for even trying to go offshore today but hey, I just had to do it. I woke up at 4 am having that "I dont wanna get up to go fishing feeling" but something didnt feel right about not going so I got off my butt and headed up to pompano. Met up with Leandro and Jason at the baitshop and we all got some offshore candy (Gogs) and started our paddle before the sun was out which was nice since I've never done this before, we went all the way to 150 and started the drift with our gogs out in the water. I was mostly enjoying the sunrise with the occasional jigging in between (I was so tired I didn't wanna jig) half an hour went by when I was jigging at 250 and bam the line takes off and the clicker starts screaming, the jig in the depths and I put the jigging rod in the flush mount rod holder, and I grab the rod when I see this beast jumping out of the water!. let me say that I can count the times I have gone out offshore with my fingers and this is my second sailfish ever so it is all super amazing to me to catch one. so after 20 minutes of fight I landed this beautiful animal and took some pics and let it go safely to keep swimming our oceans. I also caught a little tuna at 350 and a 30 inch king at 164 in the way back. it was a great day and I think I will never do flats fishing again lol tight lines my friends!
