check this crazy yakker

When Joe Hector first paddled offshore in a kayak, little did he know the adventures that awaited.

An avid fisherman, he had moved to South Florida from New Jersey, leaving his boat behind. He wanted to fish in the ocean, but he didn't want to fish from a pier.

"I was so obsessed with getting out there, I figured I'd get a kayak," Hector said. "I went out shallow and hooked a big tarpon."

Each time after that, he'd paddle a little farther and his catches became more impressive: Spanish mackerel and snappers; kingfish, tunas and sailfish; a 30-pound dolphin.

Last month, the graphic designer and personal trainer had his best catch yet, a 47-pound wahoo, which came two days after he guided his sister Nicole to a 45-pounder.

    someone should really invent a way to privately message someone. I bet it would be awesome for users and mods!

    Mods, we also need a no motor zone forum for things like this. TIA
    Some people are like a slinky, not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you push them down the stairs.
