This is a quick report, yesterday Tue 22. Myself, Efren, and Jerron went offshore kayak fishing 6 miles off Surfside. We were heading to the 6 mile rig. While passing the 4 mile rig, me and Jerron decide to troll pass it real close, as we trolled passed the 4 mile rig my Rapalla Bonita lure takes off, "long story short". I lost the massive fish to the rig legs, I had to get rid of 270 feet of 40# line due to scraping on the rig leg.

We started trolling again and the fish bite was on for king fish, before we have arrived to the 6 mile rig, me and Jerron had limit out on king fish. Once we hooked up to the rig, Jerron pulls out his Shimano wax wing, and start to cast that, he got a big hit on it, and caught his personal best king fish on it at 46".

The day kept on we caught more kings by the afternoon time Efren had caught his limit, and we got 4 more kings but released them back due to our current limit. There where more but i will save that for the videos that are soon to come!! I turned Jerron into a king fishing machine!! he was on fire this day!! good job Jerron!!

Thanks again for the invite bro. Had a blast! No worries on the lost fish. We'll land one eventually. Too many close calls.

Congrats on a great day on the water!

I like to paddle, but I can't keep up with sailboat capabilities :lol:

You guys are doing great with that setup. Keep it up!

There's a good chance that by the time those beasts are unloaded and ready to sail, you could be 3/4 there :lol: Of course a normal kayak is nowhere near as sexy...

Nice work on those mercury missiles!

Nice job guys! Jerron, what size/color Waxwing did you use? I've been really interested in them since they came out..just didn't know how successful they were. Apparently they work! :dance:

@Milkjug - Not necessarily the case. If you have it down right, an AI can be setup in around 5-8 minutes completely. With 2 capable people the TI can be setup in just a tad longer. It's all plug and play.

@5fangers - I got the wax wing 118 jr. That king blasted the lure. Make sure to put it on a 3-3.5 foot section of 61-80 lb wire leader. I used a blueish metallic color.

Sweet! Thanks for the info. I'm looking at the color chart and you're probably using the Sardine color. Got some shopping to do this weekend. 8)

Hehehe thanks, yea I thought that was cool too :) The king fish bite was smoking hot in the early morning of that day, once the afternoon time hit, the fish bite was off.

There was also alot of battle and lost lures on my part, I lost 5 good lures all in the morning time. I need to re-stock on my lures now :(
