    66F7EA6C-C63C-4E58-B746-FCCB7AE8FCA4.jpeg My brother and I got the chance to finally get on the water last Friday. Wind was blowing hard from the southeast, so we decided to to try the canal. Lots of boats in the canal, so we drifted the east end a few time. Caught short Mangroves, Sheepheads and then my personal best red. Made the trip for me. On 10lb test mono

    Beautiful Red Al, what did you get him on? Like the light tackle for those big ones.

    Wow! That is a nice Red for sure. Did you get a weight or length on it? Even more fun on light tackle.
    Thanks for report.

    Wow what beautiful Red, on 10lb mono a seriously tremendous feat. Where you freelining or using some weight. East end of the canal is a great spot, caught my personal best 50incher there last July!

    Geez, lucky you didn’t tip your yak over pulling him in with you. Huge fish! Especially fun/tough in a kayak I’ll bet.

    1 small split shot. Yes he was over 40 in. I should have measured him. Took me 45 min to land him.

    Nice battle with that honker! Makes it fun on the light tackle with more fighting time. Congrats on the PB.
