    Got an invite to get the kayaks offshore for a dolphin and white marlin trip on the Big Tahuna. We found the dolphin but they wouldnt eat our baits. So we hit the Diamond Shoals tower to see what was around. Sure enough there were AJs so I tied a jig onto my custom 400g JM rod with BX2 500 reel. We ended up landing a few and breaking off a few since the fish seemed to be holding close to the tower legs. Managed to get keep this one from breaking me off on structure. I was really suprised at how much drag I was able to use with this setup from the yak.
