Default Midnight monster

I met my nephew on the beach last night to try and get him a shark. I also told him it was prone time to possibly hit a trophy speck with the conditions and the full moon. He hadnít caught any bait by the time I got there and the tide had already changed. It was late but I told him we could give it a bit. Finally got a ladyfish but the blues tore it up everytime we cast it out.

Starting throwing lures again and a few casts in I get a solid thump followed by huge, tell-tale head shakes. I knew right then

No tape, no scale. I donít care anyway, she was an absolute beast and I was stoked just to see her. Sorry for the terrible picture and the fact that I look drunk.

Nice catch man! What lure you get her on? I've never fished them at night and I'm new to the area and saltwater scene in general (I'm from Michigan and travel for work). Does something noisy at night usually help? And is the fact that you look drunk related to the fact that you are actually drunk? Lol
