Default Sailfish and some beast red snapper

well team reel wet decided to hit some bottom spots off destin on this super full moon. well we didnt launch till about 3am or so and it was calm and the sky was lit up! got to the first spot and josh pulls up this beast red snapper. not much going on after that till the sun started to rise. We heard a loud splash and everyone looked over there then we saw a sailfish jump and we all freak out and started going over towards it. we keep seeing it and casting at it while still trolling, all of a sudden nick's reel started peeling drag! then this awesome sailfish started jumping! thanks to our hobie kayaks we were able keep up with him while i was able to get it all on video. while the hour fight was going on we kept seeing lots of action and mahi jumping but we wanted to make sure nick had our support and we get this on video. fish was released heathly. i landed a small king after this and a couple more snapper were caught by us and we also got some small ajs. great day on the water!
