Definitely my 8.1 pound speck that won 1st place in the Orange Beach Saltwater Series.

Sorry I don't have any pics. on the computer. It was 30 inches long. I caught it on a Zoom super fluke in about 4 feet of water.

I've got to see a pic of that 8 lb speck. That would be amazing in a kayak.

Biggest was a 26# king earlier this year. Hardest fought was a 21# Jack last year.

Don't have a pic on this computer.... it would have to be the 41" Jack I caught a yr and a half ago out of the yak. THAT is the largest fish I've ever caught from the yak. Some guy weighed it and not sure how acurate their scale was at 28lbs. It sure was a blast catching it... taking me on my FIRST GULFCOAST SLEIGH RIDE!!! Woohoooooo

That is one heck of a trout and well deserving of the $10K payout (from what I recall) and a strong testimate to you and kayak fishing! Great job and congrats!:bowdown:bowdown

20 pound king...the only king I've caught out of the yak. I need to do it more often.

He got munched on my a shark.

That would be my 61lb shark. (Itwas the largest fish in the Bill Hargreaves tournament this year by about 30lbs.) One of my 1st kayak trips, I caught a 5ft 40lb king, but spent 5 min trying to hoist it into my yak. After that, I decided a gaff and a camera would be good to have to capture the moment and the fish, so no pics of that one!:takephoto)

So, did he get away? Or were you able to wrestle him in?
