Default Navarre Smoker King 4/20

Got a smoker today out of the yak. Hit the beach east of the pier at 4:30 and hooked into him around 5:00. Trolled with a stretch 25 and a frozen cigar minnow on the surface. He hit the minnow and it was ON. Fought him for about 35 min before he gave up the ghost. Took a LONG first run, 150 yards at least, maybe more. Then I went on a sleigh ride... then a merry-go-round ride. He made several more shorter runs as he got close to the boat. I finally got him within gaffing distance and my fish knocker took care of the rest. I have to admit, it was a real chore getting him out of the water and back to the beach. Now.. if only I can get a couple of these next weekend

Nice king. Did you get a measurement on him. I got out there at about 5:15 yesterday and didn't see anyone else.

I couldn't find the like button. So LIKE! I get back from Korea in a few weeks and want to give trolling for kings on the yak a shot. Let me know it anyone is up for going with me.

He was right at 30# and 4 feet.

I live right next to Navarre Beach and fish almost every Saturday (weather permitting). Sometimes during the week also. If you ever want to go offshore send me a message and we'll set something up.
