I was fishing for some pomps this morning and while I was raking for sand fleas I look over my shoulder and see my new surf rod and reel heading towards the gulf. I thought I had buried my sand spike deep enough, but I guess not. I managed to set the hook and after a 10 minute battle, I landed this guy. He measured just over 36 inches. It was a great way to start the day before heading to work

Nice fish. Bet it was a lot of fun. Next time loosen your drag when it's in the sand spike so it will take line out before it pulls the pipe up. You'll just have to tighten it as soon as you get your rod to set the hook.
