Got revenge on the bridge monster

 I went back to the bridge where a big snook broke my favorite rod and landed a 36-37 inch snook. Look let's just say I have a new favorite rod.

    Yes, you did. You caught a fine one there. How big of a jig are you throwing?

    Slow rolling just off bottom with an occasional bounce/twitch

    And that's the way you do it... live and learn... we all get upset at times when a fish wins, but when you are able to go back and win... that makes it all worth wild... this IMHO is what separate the hard core fishermen from the ones that say "Oh yea i like to fish".....the give away is the "Like" .... most if not all here "LOVE" to fish and if we could we be out there all the time... nice job on that snook!!!

    How deep is the water you are fishing these in? It's been a long time but I believe we used 1/2 to 3/4 oz jigs.
