Default Jun 22, 2 > 13# (Video Added) ARS Yakin... - wow - some good waves out there today

Launched this morning into a good 3' breaking swell got out with no permanent damage and made bait at our spot. Another push further South and I was on the spot all the while taking waves over the bow and broadside. Two good hits trolling into the spot no hookup and then I put a live cig on.... Bam - 'sporty' with the waves and good fish - got #1 on ice and put 2nd live cig on drop it down - BAM - total time with bait in the water < 45 secs.



All the while I'm thinking and pondering how the heck I'm going to get back in with those rollers... sat and counted timing on the sets and waves for 10mins and when it was "right" went as clo9se as I dared, jumped off (water was 8-10' deep) grabbed the bow handle and swam- backed her into the beach. dicey but got two nice snaps and had a GREAT time on the water. Trying to get teh GoPro into a decent format and will post on here. NEVER stop or hesitate in rough conditions on the launch or recovery.






Cheers,
Stressless

Nice work. Sporty is the new '1 to 2' if you've got the experience and the cajones.

Wish we'd get a break but this forecast doesn't let up.

Video doesn't work. You probably have to change your songs.
