Home East Central General Fishing & The Outdoors


Made a clutch decision wants again and fished the tail end of the last storm cloud I had coming in the area before dark. Hit the lagoon and my line was in the water a little after six. Had a huge hook up not long after but as I went to set the hook whatever it was (assuming a bull red) decided to spit the hook out as if it was spoiled milk. Didn't let that discourage me and got my line back out in the water as I made a phone call too my wife. As the call was coming to a end BOOOOOMMMMM I threw my phone, (thank god I had on my life proof case) and started retrieving what felt like a torpedo.. About ten minutes later and with a medium tight drag to ensure her survival there she was a 43 1/2' bull red! Super healthy fish upon retrieval and I made sure she left me that way. Spun her in circles with a firm grip until she literally shook herself loose. Another awesome day In the lagoon FORSURE! Tightlines folks and if anyone has a INSTAGRAM please follow me at (flee_deezy) for cool redfish pictures and edits. Thanks!
