VIDEO: Blue Water Kayak Classic King Fish Tournament


Hey all, here is part one of the blue water kayak classic, a kayak king fish tournament that takes place in Corpus Christy, TX every summer. The original date in july got rained out so we had to move the tournament to August. This episode of 30milesOUT showcases what went on the first part of the day: tons of offshore kayak action! The kings were around the oil rigs thick! The lines in the water time was 7am and we started paddling out of marker 81 at day break. When we reached the oil rigs at about 2miles out, the sun was up and  the king action was on! As soon as our lines hit the water, some one was always hooked up.

Part 2 coming soon!
