    Pretty fish, looks like a very thick leader for those waters though. May just be the angle.

    Lol. Way the goon is going you probably will be able to use paracord.
    Hope things start to change this year.

    I hope so too. Am I just looking at that leader wrong? Looks like 50lb test. We fish the goon with 12-15, and most times we don't even bother with a leader.

    I go as high as 20 lb flouro at times, but yeah, it looks heavy in that 1st pic.
    I figured it was just slimed up a bit.

    could be, big fish for sure. I'm wishing I had gone over there this weekend.

    30 lb braid to 20lb flouro. Swimbaits is what they hit and I was super surprised at how the water has cleaned up. These fish were in deeper, murky water though...

    10 lb braid with 20 lb floro leader for the lagoon for a longer cast, heavier braid if targeting big reds
