Got one

<t>Got number 2 spanish mackerel Thursday morning off woopi . Decided to take a sebile koolie minnow 136 FL hard body lure for a troll . Bought it 3 years ago and had only used it once a long time ago. 5 minutes into the troll and the pen reel screamed with braid line peeling off the fastest i,d seen for a while. I thought this could be it . after 4 weeks of wind and no fish last 2 times out getting blown all over the ocean it looked like my persistance was going to pay of. tightening the drag i slowly got the fish close to the kayak. It was a relief to finally see leader and then a nice big Spanish mackerel. After i speared it with the Hawaiian gaff i couldn't lift it onto the kayak . After a few attempts i got it on board and another yaker named Patrick was nice enough to take the regulation photo . It went 12 and a half kilos. And everything in the world looked wonderful.
