Was fishing a SS jetty the other day during incoming. Started At the back and had a few fish but got the itch to go towards the front side even after seeing some big waves come over the rocks . First cast in I saw the biggest wave I’ve ever seen come straight at me . I had no time to react and just turned around and braced for impact. Before I knew it I went head first into the rocks . Split my thump open , banged up knee and arm . The 2 other guys on the jetty didn’t even notice me . My first thought was to not lose my vs250 and hold on for dear life lol. Def feeling sore today but thankful to be alive . Fortunately I was still able to fish even though blood was pouring from my hand for the next hour or so. Prob should have gotten stitches . Glad I had korkers but honestly don’t know if they really made any difference . Definitely have a newfound respect for the ocean . Scared me to death and I said never again but now I’m kinda ready to go back . Stay safe guys .
1st of all, rest in peace the kayaker and thoughts and prayers to his family. I can't imaging the sudden loss with this kind of situation. Now, the article states three yaks capsized and 2 of the 3 were recovered. Here's the kicker: NONE were wearing PFD's... How ridiculously careless can people be? https://www.silive.com/news/2020/05/nypd-seeks-publics-help-in-locating-missing-kayaker-after-multi-hour-coast-guard-search.html?fbclid=IwAR2opqxxw1Mv_DL8oixcKxKVVm8Jno7C0fX1d0IdZh7n19Q4azI_5KhOHLw
