Here is Guest Blogger and WCFC Photographer Extraordinaire, Jessica Haydahl.
Over the past two days I have been fortunate to be out fishing with the Kynoch family. These guys have been on fire with the Sailfish. In total over a two day period they have caught (and safely released) 13 sailfish!!! [a new West Coast Fishing Club record!] Yesterday was the big day, 11 Sailfish safely released and they capped it off with another two today.
Yesterday we had double headers and triple headers and it was hard to know what exactly to photograph while all the commotion was going on. All in all it was a fantastic day out there with the three Kynochs (Brian, Brooke, and Brent) who did an amazing job on the reels!
Here are some of the pics over the last two days!
I took this shot by leaning over the side of the boat with my underwater housing. I had no idea that there where two sailfish in the water next to each other.
Donar is holding the bill of the sailfish in order to get the hook out properly and gently.
and two of the Kynoch tribe have a double header on the line!
Just a quick shot because that fish did not want to come in the boat!
Above is my favourite shot of the day!
Kayaking Day in the bay around Isla Del Rey.
There was no Deep Sea Fishing today, so I headed off for a Kayak and a swim around the bay. The water was warm and it was a nice way to relax after a couple of days of deep sea fishing.
Here are some of the shots I took while relaxing!

Like usual it’s been a great last couple of days, always warm and sunny! Can’t wait to photograph some more tomorrow!
