We caught this nice Redfish Labor Day morning. He put up a very nice fight. It was a perfect hookset and we released the fish unharmed.

Hey Joe,

Welcome to the forum! :Rockon

Thanks for the report. That is one beautiful Red. :thumbsup

What type of tackle did you use to catch him?

We look forward to more reports real soon.

The Red was caught on an Okuma Epixor 65 (Powerpro 40lb braid) and a 7ft Med action Ugly Stick
Took about 20 minutes to get the fish in.

In our defense the reel is about 4 years old and the drag is stuck and can't be adjusted on it so he was able to run as much as he wanted....lol
