Default Bull Red on 8 lb Test

Hooked this one this afternoon at the pass on 8 lb test. Current was ripping out & the fish kept his head down, running up on the bar twice & numerous runs out deep. Total fight time was 55 minutes to boatside.

Nice fish. I caught one 22 lbs. last night on 10 lb. suffix pro mix. Lots of fun on the lighter tackle.

We had 2 pleasure boaters follow us around the last 1/2 hour of the fight, just to see what happened. (gave us plenty of room). Im gonna load up some 6 lb next trip & see if I can top the one today.

It is always a blast catching big fish on light tackle.

Nice job, what did you catch him on (kind of bait). Agree with lobsterman, used to go out with heavy gear and now I fish with lighter tackle and have a hell of a lot more fun.
