Florida Sportsman member: tarponfly49 This redtail catfish bottomed out a 50lb boga grip and taped well over our 36″ ruler! This was one heck of a fight on 15lb spinning gear, but my wife landed her after a 45 minute fight!

Amelia and Vilano Surf Fishing

Florida Sportsman member: creekgeek One of the boys was struggling to get the pole out of the holder and I looked out to see our big toothy customer come out of the water three times in succession. I knew it was a big one and thought, “Well this won’t last long. It’s just a bit too big with this tackle and this surf.” I was wrong.
