Fought him for 1hr 30mins on 10lb mono main, 15lb floro ledder, good fight. There are so many reds you might as well get a good fight, instead of just cranking them in with heavy tackle.

GOOD job... grouper22 and I got into a school of bulls one day and used 6" test to land probably 8 or so fish all in the 30# class. Just outside the pass on the east shoal. Probably 4 years ago though...What a blast!!!

We thought about chasing a couple down but were able to turn them in time.

The important thing is that the fish will be WORN OUT when you finally land it or boat it. Take the time, and it can take 10 minutes or so to revive the fish.

It's a blast and will make you a better fisherman to catch a big fish on tiny line.

Nice job!! That's the only way to catch them! I use 10lb test when fishing for them also! Way more fun that way.

Nice job. I caught one in December 2007 in fish river that went just over 30lbs on 14lb. I tip my hat to your battle with you being landlocked. :clap

Nice red, much more rewarding on very light tackle.

That was a fun afternoon Jim!! I miss the old boat but Spork is definately getting good use out of it. Looking forward to Venice,



Mike
