Tough Fight Till the Tax Collector Showed Up.
This afternoon/evening we caught many large jacks, ladyfish and a large redfish. The mystery of the evening was the two tremendous strikes we had. Both times the fish screamed drag until I was out of line. Finally the line broke as I applied breaking point pressure with no progress toward stopping the torpedos. I’ll never know for sure what those fish were, but events like this make success that much sweeter. Here’s the bull red that we were able to handle fairly easily with the same gear that I was spooled on.
