Had the day off wanted to fish no matter what. Hit up the beach super early. Very cold and windy. Nice unorchestrated chop. After about an hour wanted to dodge the wind for a bit. Dug a nice sand hole to hunker down in and fell into a nice cat nap. Heard drag opened my eyes to a bent over rod. Knew he was nice by the runs it was making. Took me down the beach few yards. Managed to get my socks and shoes off while fighting him because I thought I was gonna have to get in and revive a red. Thought it was till I saw the stripes. Some of my favorite eating! #2 kahles with hand tied double drop rigs, pink and orange beads and 4oz weights as always. Fried up tonight with slaw and Cheddar jalapeño hushpuppies and remoulade. 24" and quite fat.
