Jupiter 4/26

Woke up later than normal this morning, and didn't leave the dock til about 715. Bought a dozen gogs and left the inlet around 730. Saw a bunch of boats at green roofs, ran over there, tried to pick ups few sardines but there were few to be had. Ran out to about 80' sent the kite up and put 3 flatlines out. After about an hour I saw something checking out the short on the kite, got bit and sailfish on got a leader touch after a fight that took way too long, at least 20 minutes. Reset in about 130' and got pushed out to 220' in what seemed like 2 or 3 minutes. Reset again in 90' and had a bite on the deep flatline. Missed it, and kept going. Bite on the short on the kite and bit us off above the wire in about 120. Not a minute later we see a nice king sky on the long and miss. Fish came back and skied again and got hooked. Quick fight, gaffed him and he was bigger than we thought but not an absolute giant. Picked up and headed in around 1130.
