Default Whale Shark off Navarre Beach 08/18

Today during the tournament, my partner and I ran into this beauty. I estimate here to be around sixteen feet long, maybe larger. She had tons of cobia on her and we caught at least a dozen but couldnt get to the couple legal ones for all the small ones.

And yes, yours truly jumped out of his kayak to take a swim with her. AWESOME. I didnt place in the tournament but felt like a winner any how.

Video to come shortly, unfortunately my GoPro had ran out of battery earlier in the day.

Edit: Video now up, post nine.

The pictures dont do it any justice. Very pretty in person.

From far away at first from far away it looked like a dying marlin, dont ask me why but that is what first came to mind. I as I paddled closer I saw the square head and I then thought it was a massive tiger shark. That made me really nervous, but then I saw the spots, whew.
