I had a client come down from North Alabama to fish with me today. It always makes me nervous when clients make a long drive, rent a room for a couple of nights JUST to fish with me. Tourists that are already here is one thing but man it really puts the pressure on when they come down just to fish with me!

The forecast was iffy but we chugged along. Bait was easy, I was bringing up a sabiki full of turbo cigs nearly drop after drop.

The wind was blowing good at first but it wasnt long and the kings were biting.

We bottom bumped a bit and for the first time in a couple of weeks it seems we found a good bite and he quickly boated a couple of decent yak snapper.

We spent the rest of the day trolling. At one point as I baiting his trolling rig, BFT started going nuts not ten yards in front of us. I was finishing hooking his cig and told him to drop straight down in case they went under us as I flew out a jig. Unfortunately as quickly as the came they were gone.

On the way in for the day I hooked a mahi, normally when I hook a fish I pass it off to the client but I knew if I kept my mahi in the water hed hook up and sure enough he was on! Double mahi! Unfortunately I got the cow and he got the little bull and the 15-20lb bull that was with them didnt eat.

By the time I got my fish in, she was pretty much dead but I got his in a little green and the free treble managed to dig its self in my calf as I was trying my best to keep that mahi in the yak! Oh the joys of kayak fishing!

It was a beautiful day on the water and after the wind stopped around 1000 it was like glass. The water was also the nicest blue green that Ive seen in ages with tons of bait to boot!

I was glad that after spending the gas money, room and board and cost of the trip, I could put this offshore kayak newbie on some fish!

Great trip. See you Monday Jason.

For the rest of you, it is totally insignificant on the grand scale, but send one up for good weather come Monday :notworthy:so we can get out with Jason as planned.

I absolutely cannot wait.
