My son and I got away today for a few hours. He has really taken up interest in fishing lately so we headed down to the surf for a few hours. Started off pretty slow. Around 1 we started getting runs and broke off twice using 20 lb leaders. Switched up to 30lb then changed hooks to #2 straight short shank hooks. Using fresh peeled shrimp my son caught his first bull red. Was only 28" but he was stoked. It was quickly released after it was measured. It was pictured hanging from the boga grip but it was because he lost his grip on it while it was trying to keep from getting its photo taken. After the red the black drum took off as well. Caught 9 with 26" being the largest. Kept enough for a few taco nights and sent the rest on thier way unharmed. All in all a good few hours on a rough surf.

No doubt. It was really rough today. Wind was pretty strong all day. I don't think I would want to be out in a boat today. I'm getting to old for that kind of beating.
