Default gulf report, 9-29

crazy day to say the least. I had a effin leatherback turtle come up litterally 2 feet from me, and it was a full grown beast. had about 89 remoras on him and a small cobia. the turtle was litterally the size of a vw!! anywho. i woulda got the cobe but i scared the turtle as much as it scared me haha but right after that the rod rigged for sailfish goes off and get a decent spanish, upon gettin the spanish in the kayak i see a blacktip shark about 5' in length hangin out under me. and i have yet to get a shark for yak wars so i sight casted the beast. got him in and headed back cause it was super hot and not much action except the 1hr of screwin with the shark.puts me at 12 species on yak wars...goin back saturday. and sunday. tight lines, go noles.

Great report! My brother and I had a giant leatherback come up close several years ago in Gulf Shores.
