Paddled solo to the Bob Hall standpipe earlier today(monday) had some good luck and some bad..was a neat day on the water, released allot of fish and stayed safe..
the surf almost got me, but i made it..some of swells were pretty big on the way out..
got a few bites on ribbonfish as i got near the rig..
i decide to troll and drift for a while i make a few circles around the rig and hook the smallest kingfish i have ever caught..(30inches)
i thought it was a spanish macheral..but after getting my hands on it i could tell it was a king..(no dorsal sail, and the mouth was too big and beefy to be a smack..the meat told the story as well)
bled the little king and put him in the fishbag, bet he is gonna taste great..
got a nice bluefish..ended up bleeding it too and putting it in the fishbag..
tried to get a pic of a pretty nice lane snapper i caught, but he made a hasty exit..was gonna let him go anyway..
caught four pup sharks, let them all go..the ate most of my ribbonfish (i only took a dozen)
put on a man-o-lure and caught
lots of snapper..
small amber jack..
baby baby cobia..(cutest thing i have ever hooked)
then i hooked a large cobia with the 1once mann-o-lure..i was tied to the rig, and didn't have time to unclip) i dropped the lure down but it only went 10feet..i flipped the bail and set the hook..half my kayak goes under water instantly
(kinda used to this by now, i have lost 8 jacks and ling to the rigs so far fishing for snapper) i decided to crank the drag down and brawl with it..i stopped it at the rig, and almost had it beat..got the head turned for few second then my line broke..i think it got about a foot inside the rig..i cursed the ocean loudly(gonna spool up with 50lb suffix performance braid soon on my fin nor 4500 spinner, been using 40lb suffix performance braid it is strong stuff)..
i only had two ribbonfish left so i got out a big red/white rapala to troll to the beach with..i end up dropping it in the water(it sunk of coarse), so i put a ribbonfish out and put my other rod away decide to make one pass around the rig before heading in..only made it 40yards and i hook a nice little king(this is 5minutes after losing the big ling)
