I'll never forget my first red. Caught it on a live shrimp, standing up in a canoe in mosquito lagoon. Had to cast the shrimp behind me and to my right using one hand and managed to place it perfectly in front of him. Top of the slot limit. I'll never forget it. I wish I had a picture of it. Now we have moved on to dolphin, kings and blackfin.

Congrats! Now you will have the fever. Don't know what you got it on but wait until you get one on a topwater & light tackle!

Remember my first red too and never got a picture either. Got it soaking a finger mullet in the lagoon near maker 27 next to one of the spoil islands. Reeled that sucker next to the boat (one of those small plastic bass pro boats with a 5 hp kicker on it), line broke right at the boat and I watched it sink into the deep. Was so sad, estimated it around 30".

Good job on your first red but you have to decide, did you hook the red or did it hook you.

Nice catch! Even without a picture, you remember the first one forever.

I got my first Red last October on a jig and peal bass assassin. I guess i was lucky because my fiance had a camera so i got a shot of the Red. Great memory.

I was so pumped.... i think the classic ocean wave shades gave me good luck that afternoon.
