Rainbow of Kayaks

Fishing was unusually slow so sorry no fish pictures. My 15 year old son did manage to hook into two 6 foot tarpon off the back point of the island. They only stayed on about 1 and 3 minutes, getting 3 jumps completely out of the water of the one on for the longer period. We were shark fishing at dusk. While the 15 lb mono line with a 4 ft shock leader plus 3 ft steel leader was plenty good for a 4 and 6 ft shark it proved no match for the mighty tarpons he accidentally hooked. Next year we'll have 25 lb braided line even for sharks.
Got a couple shark pics from the trip

I would love to see some updated pics!
