I wasn't able to make it to the opener but have seen a lot of nice crabs caught and this.  Sounds like someone's kayak sank last night and the kayaker was successfully rescued by some our badass fishing buddies.  I wasn't there so I'm looking forward to hearing details.

Kayaking at night is not the best idea. Glad no one got injured or hurt. Waiting for the story.

"six crabpots tied to it"
I've never had more than 3 on my yak (usually 2), and don't tie them down to my yak, other than being secured by my pvc-scupper rack. Glad the dude is safe... Gear can be replaced.

Was it a sit inside kayak? How did he manage to sink it from just flipping it over?

Kayaking at night is actually pretty awesome if you know what you are doing.
I've chased pots at Doran at midnight, paddled out to the mile buoy at Albion at 4AM, fished the Delta at 1AM, all usually solo.
It's peaceful yet a little scary at the same time. Hard to explain.
Your senses definitely become a bit more acute.
Just be prepared and definitely know your limits.

Kayaking at night is great for launching fireworks and having bonfires in the cove.

A few leaks from the surf dump and it's over. All that weight TIED to a hull full of water....no way are you staying on. You are never going to be able to right that with a load tied to it.
Somebody was online reading and went gung-ho on his brand new kayak I bet without knowing limitations.

I was under the impression that you are only allowed 5 crab pots per person and therefore only 5 per kayak. I put 4 on my kayak and it feels pretty maxed out.
