    Caught a huge red fish on Sunday (10/30/11) at Johnson Beach. It is the biggest I have ever caught. I am not sure on the length or weight. I was to excited to get the tape measure out and wanted to get it back in the water asap. Any guesses on how much it weighed and length? I am 6'1" tall...
  8. Need some advice
