Default First Kayak Cobia!

So, I took one look at the surf cams this morning and called out of work. Boy was that the right decision. Beautiful flat goodness greeted me at the launch. Headed out to some of JDs favorite spots and the bite was meh. Trolled a cig duster and a deep diver. No taps. Moved on to another spot and decided to drop down the tried and true flounder setup. Thumped the bottom once, and bam! It was on like donkey kong. Fish was running hard, so I cupped the spool to try and slow him down. Couldn't put too much pressure on him cause I was rocking my Stradic 5k with 30lb braid. My initial thought was shark, and as I got him within sight, it was none other than the brown bomber. Heart racing, no one with me, I tried to stay calm and work him. I figured if he didn't run me in structure from the get go, then I didn't have to worry about that. It took me 16 minutes to get him gaffed. My hands were shaking. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Let the season begin!!!:

I guess he counted on slipping by Team Primus undetected on the bottom. He counted wrong. Nice.
