What a weekend!  On Friday, a Sea Lion decides to steal my first Springer of the year. Not to be deterred, I decided to return early Sunday morning for what I thought might be a good Springer bite.  I was wrong. After a couple of hours with only one takedown, I decided to catch and release Sturgeon until the bite turned back on. While I was chillin', waiting for a Sturgeon, I was surprised by the sound of a motor that just kept getting louder and louder to my position. When I looked back I was shocked to see a boat barreling down on me, striking the rear of my kayak.  Luckily, everyone was OK.  The boat's driver was very apologetic and said he saw me at the last second and was able to turn away, only striking the rear of my kayak rather than dead on.  As much fun as Sturgeon fising is right now, it may not be the best time of year to be anchored in a kayak on the Willy. Be Safe!

Holy crap Mike! Dude that's scary as hell! They could have hit you dead on and it could have been alot worse. So, no exchange of info or offer to pay for damages?
It looks like they just left!?
Was there any damage to the Outback?

Damnnnnnn! Glad you are OK. And kudos for taking a pic of that jackwagon. How's the boat? Do we need to organize a bucket of G-flex, some beers, and a work party in order to bring the good ship Jammer back to health?

Holy Crap! I know, I know. Only when the Pope does it.

You were much calmer than I would have been. What damage did it do to the back of your 'yak?

Wow Michael.  Just like with the springer theft, how did you keep from swearing?!  You're a better man than I.

Hey if you look closely at the video, you'll notice you lost your paddle that was strapped to the camera side of your boat.  You might be able to track those guys down from the number off their boat if you got it from your photo.  If they apologized I'm sure they'd pay for the paddle.

Did you get a clear shot of their reg numbers? I'll keep an eye out for them and get it for you if you want them.  I'm not sure if an incident report is warrented unless there is $200+ in damages or an injury.  Might be a good vid to throw up on IFish >:D

It looked like they tore the rudder off your kayak.  What a couple of dumbasses. How do you not see a kayak with a 6' 4" dude sitting on it wearing a yellow shirt, yellow pfd, and a bright orange safety flag. Plus,  you weren't even in the main channel.

At first I thought they were bailing so snapped their pics to get the boat #, but they were actually going after my paddle. A very scary situation!
