I only took one trolling rod, no weight. Just pinned on one mac, trolled about a half hour, three times he got caught in kelp. Then after a little while, sure enough, a solid bite, stopped, ran again, twice, and then after the count to seven, line getting low, put in gear and fish on.

I knew it was big, and figured it wasn't a YT, due to the strike.

Fought awhile, a couple seals came around and I was scared to lose whatever it was. Then it got tied up in kelp. Wow, looooooong time pulling on kelp, with no headway, but I kept feeling it pull now and then. One guy came by, and said, "patience". I had 50lb braid and 25" flourocarbon, and that braid is strong! I ended up after about an hour, literally, of tugging on kelp, just about as hard as I could. I even spent time reading the brand of my rod, praying to spirits, hoping the kelp would eventually break, and sure enough, after about an hour some line came in, and I pulled up a whole stringer of kelp, with this guy attached.

My personal best WSB before was only about 15 pounds, (only two before in my life), and the last one was about 7 years ago! (Heads go to Hubbs SeaWorld)

This guy was driven down to Dana Landing and weighed in at 60.2 pounds! Oh my god.... it feels good to FINALLY land a big one!

Yee-hah!

congrats! that 60 lb club is a real milestone for most anglers and to say that it only took 15 years is saying something.

Congrats Andy! here is to hoping you find that 50# YT soon!

I feel lucky,my first legal WSB(after 100 shorts fishing NPH) was my Avatar fish.I have caught a few good ones since,but I cant Imagine topping it.I fished Alijos rocks and had a guy next to me get an 84# YT.It really can come down to luck sometimes,we were all fishing pretty much the same.

potential world record WSB from a kayak 9/29/15

Under a blood moon lunar eclipse Did not get an accurate weight : (
Cut it up to weigh it.....wish I would have taken it to the Marlin club or OEX for official weight unprepared and had to work
It was 57ins long tail was 11ins wide did not measures girth
Over 60lbs with blood loss .....because a fish is longer doesn't mean it's heavy....this moon phase won't be back for 18years

Kinda makes you replay all those fish that you have on for a few seconds before you pull the hook on them, doesn't it?
