    This is why you watch the wave report and make sure there is not a rip current warning. We went out Sunday in our kayaks looking for Cobia. But when you do in those type of conditions, you need to be sure. It's the reason we are not out on the water right now. This guy got really lucky.

    I know exactly where that is he launched out of. My sister lived right across the bridge there in St. Pete. Every time I went to see her I saw about 1,000 great spots to fish in that bay. But you are right, it's huge and you cannot be out there taking chances.

    Thinking about what that guy went through before he died is crazy. Pretty good chance he held on for a day or two saying he did not capsize. If he did, holding on to the kayak in bad conditions is very hard. Getting back in is hard in itself if it's not a sit-on-top kayak. The second you don't respect the ocean it takes your life.
