    Gate Station 12/03 Biggest Red Ever

    Hit the beach around 0730. The bite started a little slow but picked up later in the morning. I put a bunch of whiting and a nice size bluefish in the cooler. I even caught a whiting on a finger mullet. That was a first. The catch of the day was on a small piece of shrimp with a clam fish bite and a #2 hook on a drop down rig. The red hit and surfaced as soon as it was hooked. I thought it was a big shark at first. I was lucky there was a guy fishing right down the beach that came down and helped me land the fish and get a good picture for me. The fish was released right after the picture was taken. It was by far the biggest red I've ever caught.

    No I would have been just north of you (guy in black jacket). I fished Vilano earlier that morning then decided to stop by the Gate station to finish off my bait. Had better luck there with whiting. Might go out again tomorrow.
