Default (Late report) Navarre 7/22 - Smoker king

Sorry for the late report. I just realized I never got around to posting this. But I launched out of Navarre next to the pier before the park opened to get a head start and take advantage of cloudy and windy conditions (good conditions for big nearshore kings in my experience). Trolled a pink/blue duster on a frozen cig with 31lb. Malin wire and didnt even make it to the color change before I got smoked by the below 47" king. I've seen 50"+ kings before, but this was the thickest king I had ever seen. Also caught a nice 43" and several smaller ones a bit further out once the sun came out more.
