Default My first kayak fish in the gulf

Went out for a couple of hours after work on Friday afternoon. Had 3 frozen halfbeaks that I caught in the bay last week. I rigged one up with a duster and started trolling around to the west of the pier. Got hit within 5 minutes. Pulled back in just the head of the bait. I re rigged and headed out for a bit deeper water and very quickly got another hit. This time it connected and after a fun little battle I landed my first kayak king.

Nice looking kingfish. There will be lots more kings caught by you this summer. Have fun with them and enjoy the great meals to come.
