Today was ridiculous. We had kings and axe handle spanish all morning. We paddled out before daylight and we had all hooked up several times over with schoolie kings. We couldn't keep a bait in the water.

We burned up all of our bait before daylight and had to work hard to get through the tiny cigar minnows. As daylight got up we were loading up on all kinds of bait, baby bobo's, cigars, speedos, hardtail, and threadfin.

I dragged a bobo a little ways and asked my brother to throw me a big hardtail he had just caught. No sooner than I got it in my yak, my rod is getting slammed. At first I thought another schoolie. I grabbed the rod and jacked him three times and a sail comes firing out of the water. She tail danced from 30yds out to about 10 feet from us and shot under me. Then she turned and ran right back out and almost landed on my little brother. She burned out and circled for a little bit and then cruised out and stayed about 100yds. She jumped a bunch and dragged me out about a mile and half (wind mostly).

While all of this was happening my brother gets a big knockdown by a smoker king, as he was following me out. He gets his fish yak side and it comes unbuttoned. It was a solid 35lbs.

By this time my fish is getting tired and I brought her up and was able to use my Buff as a bill glove. I had my brother take a few quick pictures before I got her back in the water. Thankfully I was in my Hobie Outback because I needed one hand to bill the fish and the other to steer as I pedaled. I got her swimming good and she swam off against the current. The best feeling to watch her swim off.

Haha, yeah I travel lite. My arm is covering up my backpack/tackle bag and my brothers were kind enough to take my other rods from me. With all of the jumping going on I was expecting it to get ugly yak side. And I really didn't want to lose anything.

This was in Panama City.

Congrats!

I wish I could fish tomorrow. I had to head back to Auburn, AL. But I will be back home next weekend. I was going to shoot ducks for the early season but I will be passing on that, hahaha.
