Default My Biggest King ever!

Went out today around 330pm and launched from Navarre. Shortly after I launched I realized I lost my gaff while I paddled out, but there was nothing I could do so I kept on trucking. Ten minutes after launching my penn battle starts to go off and I reel in and set the hook and as I was doing that my other rod goes off but I lost the second fish cause it bite threw my leader. I hauled in i nice size spanish and that was that. I had one other hit that I lost the fish on and about 30 minutes later I was working my way in closer to shore and my diawa saltist starts to scream so loud it was insane. The fish made a good 250+ yard run on the first run of many. Then the line goes slack and I think I lost the fish so I reel in as fast as I could and i realize it was headed straight for me and I saw it run under my yak. At this time the line tangles with my other rod I was trolling me so I put the rod with the fish on back in the holder and grab my other to get it untangled and the fish makes another run that ripped my ram rod holder out from the yak but luckily I had a rod leash and grabbed the rob in time. The fish surfaces pretty far from me and it looked like a shark cause it was so long well I finally get it to the yak and realize its a HUGE King. No gaff on me at all I had to lay this joker on my lap and paddle in very fast because the fish was still very much alive. All in all it was a great day the fish measured out to be close to 48 inches and I dont know how much it weighed cause my boga grip only goes up to 30lbs but I would guess it is well over 40lbs.
