I told myself last night that I was going to go out today and break a kayak wars record and I did it! I got out around 6am trolling the beach for cobia but the water is so dirty I thought I had no chance of seeing one or it seeing anything I was trolling with. So I went and trolled for kings and then I saw a fin come up out of the corner of my eye and I was like I know what that is so I threw a jig out in front of where the fin came up jigged it two times and this cobia nailed the daylights out of it so I set the hook as hard as Ican and as many times as I can. I fought the fish for a good 25 mins with boats stopping and taking pics of me fighting it. Finally I got her up and got the gaff in her and the hammer out. The fish is 52 1/2 inches long and weighs 38 pounds. I got the fish on ice and went back out and caught two kings within a hour.

That is a great fish. Wish I would have had better luck. I did not go back out my wife had a doctors appointment. I guess I missed the king bite. I thought that fish was going to break your rod at one point. Thanks for info. I obviously found the new link to PFF.

I have the measured pic postedon kayak wars that pic doesn't show up good here. My rod was doubled over the whole fight and I would like to thank Erineof Cavitt's custom rods. He built those rods for my customers and wow did it do its job!
