Dang fish was 26" long but only 6.5#. You'd think they'd be fatter with the shad run done. Some other cowboys but this guy was fun. Thought I may have hurt her when I dropped onto the boat..she still had lots of fight in her...she resuscitated fine and left with a splash.
Ruined my St Johns spinner bait though. 2- 7lbs and this 6.5 on it and it finally broke. Gotta build me another one.
Nothing like getting skunked tarpon fishing in the keys to come home and score a bigun
