Default Slow day Redfishing, But did manage to bring home an 83lber

Well the redfish just weren't bitting for me In Blackwater Bay so I directed my attention elsewhere. Big boy weighed in @83lbs!

I guess I can safely assume you weren't noodling for that one.

Next time take a picture andlet him go. There's no telling how old that thing was. If you need soup that bad I'll buy you a chicken or some neck bones.

You were well within your legal rights to harvest him, but i personally wouldnt. It takes several years for one to reach sexual maturity and most states list them as endangered or threatened species. Florida has them as a species of concern. I'm with Geronimo, hell just go buy some soup. I wouldnt want to clean that nasty critter. I have captured hundreds of those as a kid, several as large as that one and some as small as a hatchling, but could not bring myself to kill one.
