Default First Sailfish

Decided to launch the kayak in the gulf and try to catch some king off of the east end of Panama City Beach. Launched at 5:45 or so and landed a very small king (+/-22") at about 6:15 on a frozen cigar minnow. I re-baited and set the rod in the rod holder when I heard a crash behind me and my other rod was doubled over. I turned around and saw a saifish tailwalking behind me! Never caught one before, so it got pretty chaotic. After about 20-30 minutes of multiple jumps and runs, I finally hoisted it into the yak for a quick picture before release. Just my luck -my iphone was soaked and would not take any pictures!! Oh well, I revived the fish for a minute or 2 and it swam off. Guess I need to get a GoPro. Here are the pic's that I was able to get - they are not very good but they are my only proof.

Thanks guys. He hit a frozen cigar minnow on a short piece of 40 lb wire with a pink and white duster. I still can't beleive I landed it - the whole time I was thinking "at least I saw it jump" but the little trebles held!
