    panama city beach fl ICW monster red

    i put in the other day around 12 under 79 with a live well full of shrimp and a bunch of frozen shad about 8 in long, i caught the day before at lake powell under the bridge. i caught a bunch of small red and small trout on shrimp. i started chumming with the shad and hooked into this red fish it was 38 inchs and weighed 18 pounds it was all messed up from either a boat or a shark or something it was a good fish and i released him shortly after snapping some pictures.Click image for larger version.

    My first thought was flipper too. That's sure what the marks look like. I don't think a shark would have gotten that much of him and not sealed the deal.

    I also wonder if maybe flipper didn't grab that fish while somebody else was fighting him. Looks like a pretty large fish for a dolphin to go after... flipper must have been pretty hungry to spend that much engery on a fish that large when there's so much other easier pickin's for him.
