Default BFT off the Kayak Stressless/Phlipper/Scaly Neck with pics

Short report as we were just out to make some bottom time and didn't really pack to go "Fishing" we each had a rod and one trolling lure as we were going to look for bottom spots.

Phlipper was in the WS tarpon 14 and dragging a 6" diver when thunder struck and smoked about 150ydrs from the Stradic 5000. Fight was on for about 45mins and I assisted with the gaff to the head - THANKS to Scally Neck for bringing that and a stringer. Two trucks and three yaks - we didn't really figure to catch anything so we had no big cooler (well bigger then to keep a couple beers cold). Got him in an had some well earned sashimi yesterday and some steaks today.













A great day on the Gulf and unexpected prize.

OutThere,
Stressless

Awesome! I saw some black fins close to shore about this time last year.... I've been waiting for someone to catch one from a yak. Good job!

Nice catch! It's always nice when you have to say you need a bigger cooler.
