Nice fish. I would like to be there. I caught a 30"er off Navarre a few years back, and that was the biggest I've caught up here in the panhandle. Iused to catch trout like that all the time in Brevard county where I came from. Indian River, Banana River and Mosquito Lagoon.

Thanks for all the nice replies!

The fish was caught on light tackle 10lb ande mono to be exact. She did a fine job handling that big fish witha soft mouth. It was caught on a 3" berkley gulp new penny shrimp under a cajun thunder poppin' cork.

Shane, the job is the coolest thing in the world man its never the same and fast paced and fun. Its almost as fun as being a deckhand! Take it easy man and you and mattleave some flounder for the rest of us:toast

Bob,

wassup man hows them flounder? I'm ready for yall to come grab some more lobster with us!

Thanks,

Miles H.
