Default big kayak mahi, 5/14

couldnt find anybody to fish with this morning so i headed east by myself to look for some snappers for kayak wars. early i found a monster weed line about a mile out and worked it hardddddd with nothing to show but a wasted morning for trolling. anywho, made my way to the first wreck and instantly hooked up to a smallish mahi, 27in.

shortly after that i spotted yet another sailfish, this one was small though, about 20lbs, but a sailfish is a sailfish. threw at him and he swatted the bait (i think out of him being pissed off more than hungry) and eased off, oh well.

right after that i hook up to another mahi. let him eat for a min and then the acrobats started. got everything on the gopro too. this fish stayed out of the water more than in the water. super fun. forgot to mention i forgot the gaff so getting these things in the boat was harder than the fight itself. anyway, got the fish in the boat and it measured 40.25in.

found a snapper hole shortly after that and got three one after another but they were all small. and i got raped on a 4500 saltist on a vertical jig by something massive lol video will come up probabily wednesday cause were headed back offshore tomorrow. tight lines fellas

That's got to be a blast from a kayak.
