A few shots from today. Clear skies, virtually no wind, perfect sight fishing conditions all day and no other fisherman within miles.
Redzilla took 55 minutes to land. Instead of a spot on the tail, he had a big letter S. Every once in a while, you catch a fish that is extraordinary. Even though the Redfish was only 31.5 Lbs, it had heart and endurance like no other. After running me up a narrow channel about 200 yards, it reversed course and went back out into the gulf for another ½ mile. Marty kept track of the time as the battle exceeded 20 min, then 30, then 45, 50 and finally 55 minutes. It was a war where neither of us was willing to give in. Fortunately, Marty and I prevailed and gave the beast a sore lip and a lasting memory.
It was a great 3 days out and I can’t wait till November.
