Below the Franchise describes his fishing trip:
Had a limited amount of time to fish this afternoon but I wanted another Red Drum to bring my season total to 25. I ended up with two more for 26. I also hooked and fought for a minute or so an absolutely hugh shark before he found a weak link(mono leader)! Seeing over 7′ of twisting shark leave the water like a missile is truly jaw dropping! If I had suspected a monster like that was still off the beach I probably would have put on the big multiplier not the smaller drum reel and a wire leader. Ah well thats what I love about this sport and keeps me coming back for more. Anyway the Reds were fantastic with the first going 45″ and approx 35Lbs and number 26 went 42″ and close to 30Lbs.
