I got a hardhead cat fish 14 inches or so and a black drum that was 17 inches.  I was disappointed it wasn't a red :)

Lol caught so many of those stupid hardheads and sailcats in Florida. It was pretty cool in florida, I caught something like 14 different species and you never knew what you were going to catch. Never got a black drum though.

We didn't catch it from a kayak but each night we would go out and fish from the dock.  Kevin, who was one of the Staff from Hobie that we stayed with caught this monster Black Drum.

Really nice black one !
Often the best fishing is near the launch dock.   ;)
Any participants spend most of the fishing day there ? May have been a winning plan ?

Boat launches are often located in certain spots for a reason. There is a lake I fish in Saskatchewan that you can fish anywhere on the lake and you won't catch as many fish as 100 feet out from the launch.

The black drum in the picture was caught at Morans Marina where we stayed but it is out of range of the Leeville Launch.  There were some good fish caught near our launch though and the porpoises were often in the area, one was even seen flipping the elusive flounder in the air during pre-fish :)

Anyone have an explanation for why there were no flounder around? Presumably they must be common in the area or the organizers wouldn't have included them as a tournament species.

I believe they migrate to deeper waters to spawn in the late fall. Probably were hoping a few stragglers and immature ones would be around and could be caught.
