I went on that one trip two years ago and caught 4 (my limit) and I have not been since.

Who knows what the season will be like this year.

Your yellow is bigger than any I have ever caught.

I sure would like to catch one of those out of my kayak ... what a ride they could give!

As you know Mike, The kayakers love fishing inshore near the kelp beds.....Catching a Yellowtail, especially a large one would be an intense battle.

One thing for sure about fishing from a kayak ... you don't fight the big fish ... you enjoy the ride until it tires and then reel it in. It's a lot like Santiago of the Old Man and the Sea catching the Marlin and having the Marlin pull his skiff for 2 days and nights. If you have never caught a large fish from a kayak you should do it at least once ... if you love to fish like I do you will want to do it again. I do suggest you go with an experienced kayaker if you go for obvious reasons ... things happen and it is better to have help a few strokes of a paddle away from you than be out alone with a capsized boat and not know what to do next!

Even when your Halibut fishing inshore you just never know what your going to catch. You could hook into a Thresher shark, dogfish, leopard shark, mako, ling cod, Lobster pot, seal...etc.....That's the fun part about Saltwater

Speaking of kayak fishing, this is my friend Dustin with a Tarpon he caught from his yak off the beach near JAX, FL. Hooked and released in under 40 minutes using a Curado 200 reel and extra heavy casting rod if I remember right.

Stan ... I bet if you were to ask your friend would tell you "it was a hell of a rife!" That is a good fish from a kayak ... looks like he is using a 'peddle' boat probably a Hobie ... the paddle is there only for shallow water and an emergency when the pedal fins break down. Nice catch!

Mike, It's a Wilderness Systems Tarpon 16 one of the originals without the tank well. Very narrow and very fast boat. No stinking peddle boats for Dustin! These FL boys use a CaptDick StakeOutPole for getting around in skinny water. Oh, BTW, I took the pic. :4chsmu1:

And I thought my Native Slayer Angler 14.5 was a long boat. A 16 wouldn't easily get into some of the areas I go into ... the 14 is sometimes too big. I'm thinking of adding a Native Ultimate 12 to my arsenal just for the shallows. I'm not a big fan of the pedal boats ... have used a couple Hobies ... just don't like the peddle concept. Hell I've been paddling and poling a 17' Old Town canoe since I was 8 years old and I'm 65 now ... not about to peddle a kayak! I thought your friend's boat might be a peddle boat just the way he was sitting in the picture. Glad to hear he paddles! I use a stakeout pole but it is merely a 6' wood dowel I shove down one of the scupper holes ... but then when I am using that I'm in fresh water and very little if any current. It just keeps me in place when it is windy. When in the salt I am usually too deep to use a stakeout.

Thanks, Adam it we estimated it at 150+. And Mike, that's why he is sitting funny to keep from rolling that skinny yak over. :-)

Nice fish you posted Adam. I've always wanted to do a long range trip for Yellowfin from San Diego.

Another nice sized poon from a yak. This Shane on the west coast of FL near Punta Gorda. Shane is about 125 #s soaking wet and a wild man in a yak

That Redfish yak is what my fishing partner swears by. Nice fish ... not sure who tips the scale more ... Shane or the Fish! Nicely done.

The Heritage Redfish is one of the best fishing yaks ever produced. Great on the inshore flats of W FL for sneaking up on, of all things, tailing Redfish. Very quite and stable kayak. I rigged and sold a lot of them back in the old days. David shows how to do it. PS: I have permission to use this photo. David and Shane were my pro staff back in the day.

Here's a fun shot of Shane and a very large Snook he unfortunately shared with a shark.
