Went fishing today at the 41 bridges. I caught a few spotted trout, one that was just under a keeper. Also caught 1 Red, also just under a keeper. Then my father in law decided to break tradition, and catch something other than a catfish. Check it out in it's 26" glory.

That is a good eating size red. Looks like a real nice dock/pier you are on too. The synthetic wood is allot easier to walk on.

You have those redfish dialed in.

Was in Port Charlotte today visiting my fiancé's family and hit the bay for a few hours. The water was a nasty brown. no hits and didn't see any baitfish or anything else. Is the bays on the west coast usually that color??? It sure looked like really dirty water. :(
Plz put back the small ones.

Nice red!

Looks like the first one was spotless too, which is a little more rare. Good stuff!
