Cool video and looks like a lot of fun. You must not have any form of ADD because the noises from that platform would have made me crazy!!!

Great video. I fished a rig out of POC last summer that had alarm going off and drove me crazy, had to leave after an hour it was so bad.

Good stuff Billy! I didn't know you were into the kayak fishing game too. Doesn't surprise me one bit. Thanks for sharing.

That is awesome! Thanks for sharing!!! I have asked on other threads about keeping /eating sharks and was told black tips are probably the best eating. Do you ever keep any of them??

If I catch a blacktip from shore I will bleed it and take it home to eat. I am in no position to properly bleed and take care of them out there. I keep spanish,kings and snapper when I can get em though.

Great video!!!

I used to hit the rigs in my pro angler but never messed with the sharks. Lots of fun when the kings and smacks are there.

Hoping to head further south next week and do a kingfish video. They can really smoke a reel!

Thanks Bisch. I wish I would have started this years ago. I had a 21ft century center console that was not half the fun!

Very cool video. Loots like a great time.

Are you going through multiple GoPro batteries and changing them out or just using the one in each cam the whole time?

I change batteries as needed. I keep them in a water proff container.

It's not that bad once you get used to it. You figure out space and what you really need and what you can do without!lol

Nice yak! I got to use a solo skiff recently and was in love. I havenít used a Hobie with the mirage drive yet though. How do you like it?
Is the pedal drive fairly durable? Is it as fast as paddling?

Looks like a great trip!

Love the hobie outback. The mirage drive is durable and the boat is quick for such a stable platform. I would like to try a solo skiff. They look pretty cool!

Had a goal of catching shark off a kayak years ago. Bought a ocean kayak drifter and went to crystal beach for a week. Caught shark and bull reds until I was tired of it. Was probaly the easiest fishing I have ever done. No one on the beach was catching anything but drifting big mullet I was hooking up none stop. Had a nice size bull shark pull me off shore a good ways. I would paddle to the color change and throw out my bait and let it drift. I landed every shark except for the big one I hooked up. I brought it up after a hour long fight , it’s nose was at the front of my kayak and it’s tail
Was close to the end . I cut my leader ! It was a cool experience, the black tips would launch out of the water when I hooked up.
