Oh man there is not telling what kind of fish it was. If I had to guess it was either a big bull red or a large ray. Since it was shrimp under a bobber those would be my first two thoughts. I've lost a bait bucket before also...lol

RIP Bait Bucket!!! Sounds like someone needs to bring a lil heavier tackle with them to Bob Sikes next trip! Sorry to hear about your loss... I normally try to have atleast 20lb to 30lb braid when I fish around bridges or piers in order to have some backbone to yank em out from under the structure...

Good Luck Next Time!!

A big drum could spool 10lb line easily, Big jack, etc. I don't think a pro would use that light of tackle from a bridge, or jetty.

Did the fish run away from the bridge or under the car bridge?? I was probablythe boogie monster.

Don't be using no light with a boober on the bridge. That may get you arrested or at least draw a crowd.



As for the fish, I don't know if it's a good thing or not, but I do know those types of experiences are what keep you going back. That big one, whatever he is, is out there boys, and I'm gonna get him.......
