Default Success at last

Went out this evening around 1830, been awhile since work kicked into overdrive, Got on tgecwater near pensacola beach. Picked up shrimp never used live bait in salt. Figured, my technique may blow with artificiak, but i may increase my odds by having a live target out there. Get my prawn out there,. Pick up my other pole throw out the same mr17 ive been casting the last few times ive been out. First cast, boom. Hit hard, drag crying. Im like holy f... i ve never had i fight like this. Took about 4min to get him in. 24" red. First red ive ever caught. 3 shrimp later i land a 16ish cat. Best day on the water yet

Its a feel free lure 13.5. Its got loads of room. Its a bitch in the wind/waves. Thinking about getting the rudder to help with that.

I just looked it up...that sucker has a lot of cool features! Never heard of it before now but seems like it would be a sweet setup and a great rig for the paddlers...put a trolling motor on that bad boy and you'd be in serious business!
