Re: 77lb Yellowtail speared solo off a kayak

At first I thought you got that off La Jolla! I was like "I better get my dang boat fixed".

Congrats on an absolute PIG!!!!!! That picture of you holding it up is crazy! Its just huge.

Good way to help shake off the winter time blues around here.

Thanks for posting.

Rob

Ahhh... I thought it towed you from New Zealand to La Jolla... THAT would have been impressive and definitely a record!

Epic story and Pics Dan...I'm curious...do the NZ kingfish act any differently from the Yellowtail we have here in CA?

Re: 77lb Yellowtail speared solo off a kayak

Dude you double posted this. Here you called it a yellowtail and in the international section you called it a kingfish. You changed the name to what we call it in California but it's not the same at all. If every new Zealander wanted to make themselves a brand name in the ca section there'd be millions of better reports than yours and no room for actual california stories. That said it's awesome that you made it to NZ and I'm a wee bit jealous.

Take a hike or should I say adventure.
Salty much? I called it out but in a classy way. Why do you sound so butthurt?

Nice fish. Congratulations. YT "turn off" if you hold your fingers in their eye sockets. They pretty much go limp. But watch out when you let go, unless you've brained them. Congratulations again. Nice fish!

Not the first time I've seen this guy recant his angry words. That takes some serious reasonableness. My respect to you, sir.

Yo Seeco hit me up a little later this summer after the spring winds die down and let's dive the islands.

Callin' em like you see 'em doesn't mean you're butt hurt.
