Default First kayak fishing trip of the year

Wow, I cant believe 2013 is already 23 days old and I am just now wetting a line.

With the nice weather today, yakntat and I decided to hit the Gulf looking for flounder and triggers. No legal triggers found but we managed to bring up five decent flatties between the two of us.

My first drop of 2013 yielded a nice red snapper that would have qualified for KW trophy fish points. Surprisingly I caught more flounder then snapper this trip. YnT managed a couple trophy ARS as well.

On the way in we were greeted by a pod of very small, two toned dolphin, a kind I have never seen from the yak before, who loved swimming our bows for a awhile.

Paradise has truly been found.

Hopefully YnT will be around soon to post up some pics and a vid of the dolphins.

Glad you got out and good job on the mini 'buts

Most likely Dusky Dolphins you saw. They max out at around 7' and are generally found further offshore and often moving pretty quick.

What kind of dolphins were they? This looks like a decent guide:
