Livingthedream and I decided to go on a drift wed. morning. It was beautiful out(testing the PA 12)made our way out to 250 no current!!! 350 no current!!! Oh well no drift, Bonita was the only thing on the menu for both of us... At least we kept the skunk off. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1345750154.674921.jpg
8/23 the wind was blowing a little harder then the day before but still flat so we decided not to drift, we peddled out to about 200 ft. LTD passed over a school and decided to drop he hooked up instantly. So I dropped my jigg as well. I didn't even reached the bottom and my rod is bent over tip in the water... This fish did not want to come up!! I knew it was not a Bonita.
After playing tug of war for about 15 min I see a white belly flash.. A slob gag
First drop, first fish of the day!
LTD caught a nice king that was released and his first jumbo black fin tuna (congrats) We both wrenched up bunch of Bonita's, the current did picked up later in the morning so we called it early with a cooler full of fish!!!

    Looks like you guys killed it. I headed out of Dania this morning with mapache, who met up with you guys on the water. I had to go in early, got a little green and lost my breakfast. Not before a small group of Cobia showed up under my yak though. They were taking squid right off the surface, but the only bare hooks I had rigged up were with wire and they must have been able to see it because they kept biting AROUND the hooks lol.

    Redneck those supposed cobia you saw were probably remoras the enemy of kayakers with live bait. It's the only fish i will release unable to survive

    That's true they could have been, although I've never seen either before up close so i couldn't say for sure.
