    Awesome! im guessing they are in the 40-50 pound range maybe more, I got a huge one yesterday off a bridge and it took me for a run mine was 55 pounds and was caught on 15lb test. I wasnt using my buggywhip cause i didnt have anything big enough to horse them in. heres a pic of mineClick image for larger version.

    Nice work!!! I have got some to eat at that same bridge, but being in my kayak, I have only managed to land the smaller guys (15-20lb). Let me know if you need a landing hand or a camera man.

    Used to catch them up to about 30 lbs. off the bridege(Gandy) at night, using crabs on the bottom. Never even thought of fly fishing for them, although I've caught a variety of other fish wading the flats at both ends of the bridge- snook, trout, jacks, and ladyfish. I even caught a spanish mackerel wading the west end by the big radio towers one day. I used popping bugs and bright streamers. I'd also like to get a better look at the fly you got them on.
