Default Ft Pickens Red

I went out to Ft Pickens Sunday evening looking for Reds and Pompano. Brought some dead sand fleas but quickly dug a enough live ones to keep bait on 2 poles. Sat from 4:30 to 6:30 without any bites. Around 6:30 one line jumped pretty good so I put down my phone (I know, I was "that guy" playing with my phone when I was supposed to be paying attention), and jumped up a grabbed the pole and set the hook. Had something pretty big on the other end then nothing. The hook straightened out. I put fresh bait on real quick and waded out to cast as far as I could. I had one on before I was even out of the water but didn't realize it until I got out and closed the bail. Fought for about 5 minutes and pulled in 27-3/4 inch red. Just outside the slot. Let him go and rebaited as fast as I could but nothing else bit. Just as I was getting up to leave I got one more hit but nothing was there when I set the hook. All in all it was good. I was there about 3 hour and caught a real good fish!
