34 inch snook in 30+mph winds

Ran south out of choko on Wednesday after the front pushed thru. It was windy to say the least. Some bigger bays had a 2 ft chop in them. After running for a while we picked up a nice slot size red and missed a second one, missed a couple of snook then moved on to the next spot. After some searching I found the spot and I called it. Landed a 35 inch beauty to make the day. We got a bunch of trout all day as well. I've been running my new beavertail strike for 2 months and could not be more impressed. This thing floats shallow, runs shallow and cuts threw chop like nothing. I have yet to get wet on this boat. After running roughly 85 miles Wednesday I burnt less then a half tank of fuel. Out in 30kt winds and having a solid 2 ft chop this boat slices thru like nothing. Poles amazing and is stable. I love this boat more everyone I take her out.
