This was the only Red of the day - and it really was a team effort. Dewey had picked up a Pflueger rod and reel at Academy - small - 10lb test line. We use those to catch bait - whiting, croaker, etc.

It was out and took off. After almost spooling the reel - we got him turned around. About 20 minutes later this red was getting his picture taken. We laughed and remembered how we used to fight these Reds exclusively on light tackle. Using the heavier rigs is better on us and the fish!

This Red, as well as all the drum we caught, was vented and sent on his way.
