Default Sunday Funday 8/28

Put in at 17th this morning around 6am. Paddled around to green shores and met up with Robin. After a few Big Ugly sightings and no hits I saw the look of defeat in Robins eyes.... And I had to break in my new rod and reel setup. " let's go to the hump " I suggested and with hope in his eyes Robin agreed. As we make our way to the hump Robin hooks into a few lady fish, I knew the ladies loved him... And as we make it to marker 90 I decide to hug the bridge and start fishing. Before I could get a line in the water Robin is already hooked into what seemed to be a nice whatever it was. After a few minutes of what seemed to have been forever Robin pulls in a beautiful 29" Red. To Robins dismay and reluctancy he freed the big girl and off we go to the races. I distinctly remembered suggesting a bet to see who catches the big fish but that was before Robins 29". After Robins red it was up hill from there. We were in the middle of a Red Feeding Frenzy. I have never in my life seen with my own eyes so many Reds feeding in the same place. For the next 1.5 hrs Robin and myself hook and land a dozen Reds with at least half being slot. We kept 2 24" beauties and the biggest was my bull measuring in at 34". The entire time I fished 1/4oz jig white head with new penny gulp shrimp. I played around with my yozuri and my spook and had no problems hooking into something. With all the excitement I think Robins leg felt frisky and let itself get hooked by his spook... 2 nasty hooks past the barb in his thigh.... I'll let the pictures do it's job. Pictures in 5 minutes

Barbless man, go barbless. I have been to the clinic for the last time to get a hook cut out.
Nice report and good to see the reds on fire.

Nice job!...on the fish. Bummer on the leg. Looks like it was a blast other than the leg.

hehe yeh i told Robin that the Ladies love Scars... With one that low who knows what kinda stories you can make up!

Redalert: So when is RedAlert Jr due? we need you back on the water to help with population control.

Ive never, knock on wood, been hooked past the barb before. I usually dont use trebels but most of my lures use them. The actual story as told by Robin is that he was reeling in a MASSIVE Tarpon and it spit the hook back at him with such force that it embedded itself in his upper thigh. And by massive tarpon i mean ladyfish.
