Default Kayak Offshore Slams

Went out yesterday in Destin and got a Kayak Wars Man Gold Point by catching an offshore slam (Snapper, Grouper, King Mack.) I couldn't figure out why I got another point until I re-read the rules:

Kayak Man Gold Points - Kayak Wars - Online Kayak Fishing Tournament (You can get a man point for each 50 fish you submit.)

If you are like me and can't compete with Brandon and Tex to have the most total points, the man points are fun way to have a chance to win raffle prizes a the end of the year. I caught a total of 2 grouper, 2 red snapper, 2 Spanish, 1 bonito and a king mack for the day.

I caught another offshore slam the last time that I wreck fished in Destin on 8/22/10. The snapper of 24-inches was my largest kayak snapper, and the king was the skinniest one I have ever caught. See pics below for that day. (Total 4 red snapper, 1 grouper, 1 spanish, 1 king) Slams are fun to try to catch, and bottom fishing is also a blast to catch from a yak because they pull so hard. Hobie Kayaks make it a lot easier to stay on top of the wreck. I just wish that Navarre Beach had wrecks so that I could do it more often.

Great job! I should of went especially since Navarre was dead, except for a bunch of remora and a small bonita. Hopefully, next time I'll get 'em.

I tried to talk you into it, but had it been much windier when I left the house, I would have joined you.

Frozen cigs while trolling. One was 24-inches to fork, so about 4lbs.

Has anyone checked with the county about permits for adding reefs offshore of Navarre? I would be interested and invest in some.
