Default Bloodied up the new outback on first trip out

In the water at nine AM. Met up with a couple friends as they were loading up on cigs before they left. After getting a couple dozen I peddle, not paddle, yay feels good saying that, to my usual area. I see two outbacks there, a red and a blue one. Im less than a hundred yards away when I see a sail start tailwalking. One of the guys was hooked up good. I sat and watched him fight the fish for about ten minutes until he came unbuttoned.

My target was a sail or more mahi so I had my hopes high after seeing that. I continue out to about three miles from shore looking for a weedline with no luck. I managed to pick up a king on the way.

I ended the day landing three kings, nothing special but all well more then legal size and a nice big spanish. All fish were quickly released to fight another day.

I did have about ten solid runs, some never hooked up and I broke two which is pretty odd for me. Not sure what was going on with that today.

On the way in I decided that since Ive never beached a yak like this before I would jump out at the second sand bar, the one furthest from the beach, because I only had two of my four rods leashed.

I get over the bar and see the bottom plain as day thinking it was about waist deep. Instead of sliding I pushed off in a half ass jump. Well I never hit bottom and my glasses and hat came off. Luckily I got them back but then I had to chase down the yak. According to my GPS I peddled almost nine and a half miles. I was feeling good but as soon as I jumped in both of my legs cramped up instantly. I almost panicked. I as calmly yet as quickly as possible caught back up with the yak.

It was fun grabbing the back end of the boat and belly surfing with it on the way in.

I managed to get the outback on top of my jeep with out too much trouble so thats a good thing I suppose. I will need a good beach cart for sure in the near future.

Sorry for the long post but Im over all VERY happy with the outback and looking forward to getting it bloody as much as possible.

Oscar, I hope you can get back in the seat but if you can't let me know, by then I may be ready for another for friends and family to take out.

It wasnt my first time in the Gulf, just first time on a Hobie.

Welcome to the club. You'll get better with the mirage drive beach landings in time. See you on the water.
