Default redfish delight

Well got the family together and headed out to the beach. Was REALLY late by time we made it out their (1200) man it was a beautiful day to be ph the beach.. got the kids and wife situated and got my lines out... Was using cut bait (flea rake broke ) and was not long I had a ladyfish hooked. Used her for some fresh bait and back out i went. No bite for at least 30 min. And finally a hit.. turns out to be the gulfs finest aggrevating fish... Catfish! Got some fresh bait and back out I go, started playing with the kids at the waters edge and I look back to see my pole trying to slap the beach.. get to my pole, real in the slack and set the hook BAM! Fish on! Man it felt like I was pulling an anchor up... Fought for about 15min and finally got a glance of what it was in a wave.. then after knowing what I had the excitement escalated! By now I was drawing a crowd.. everytime I would get him close he would turn and run like he just hit the line... After finally wearing him down I get to hold my trophy.. 37" redfish! my son (on my right side) was going nuts to say the least lol good times with family and friends!
