Florida Sportsman Member: Jim311 I pushed in further into the creek. I spooked one nice red which I didn’t even see until he’d spooked. Then I hooked up again, and again it was another super hard fight. This fish was bigger though, over 32 inches.

Florida Sportsman member: Angler Management The wind overpowered the current so it kept us moving south and we fished our majority of the time just south of the breakers.

Florida Sportsman member: hoggator I called again, and they answered, but kept walking. Too far for my son to shoot! Some would argue that maybe too far for me as well! I leaned across my son, rested my elbow on his thigh, told him to cover his ears, and let the Mossberg 835 with 3.5” Longbeard XRs sing.
