Nice king mackerel catch off of Grayton Beach

July 10, 2009

Vacationing Fletcher Lindberg caught this king mackerel while kayak fishing approximately 150 yards off Grayton Beach on July 8.

“I estimated the King Mackerel to be 20 – 25 pounds. I was actually looking for tarpon and therefore had a tarpon fly on. I had 40 pound class tippet with 80 pound bite tippet. Tons of fun but a challenge in a kayak,” Fletcher said.

“I’m tarpon fishing today with Jeff Ragland of Old Florida Outfitters, who does a great job. We landed a hundred pounder last year and had one on today but it threw the fly. I wished I lived here so I could enjoy it more,” Fletcher added.

Thanks for sharing Fletch!
