Default redfish

Went fishing after work, first cast got me a nice spanish. So I did the next logical thing, bit the head off and stuck it on a hook. Got a couple more of them but no big run like last time. Caught a decent fat red at 39". When I was getting ready to leave, a tank hit and took off. I hoped it was a giant sized red but I could tell shortly into the fight what it was. Around 30 minutes later I was able to drag it close enough to see and my supsicion was confirmed, a ray close to 4ft across. I am sure I am underestimating it was darn big. So I snapped the line and called it a day. Had to anyway since while I was standing there with drag screaming and my pole bent like a pretzal them base po-lice came and tried to tell me I had to leave.

Wait, why did the base police tell you that you had to leave? Is fishing not allowed where you were at? There are tables set up right around the corner with in a few feet of the water line that i'm assuming are only there for one reason. Oh nice red by the way!

Fishing is prohibited after dark. You might fall down and hurt yourself or be mistaken for one of them al qaida. And I of course support all base policies...
