When fishing from a kayak, people generaly play for a small to medium easy catch.
This was not the case for Mike Gonzalez when he went kayaking one night near Clayton’s Beach Bar.
He was at the second sand dune at about 6:30 p.m. on his wife’s pink kayak when he felt a strong tug on his fishing line. His initial attempts at reeling in the catch were unsuccessful. Instead, according to Gonzalez, he was drug out a mile and a half into the Gulf.
