8.0 lb. Red Drum caught by Gary Everts fishing in Florida on 11/10/11
28.0" / 8.0 lb. Red Drum caught by Gary Everts fishing on Thursday November 10, 2011 at 09:20 6.51 km from Boca Grande in Lee County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a 19MR 3/8oz color 19 a Lipless Bait by L&S Bait Company

a nice warm south Florida Day, a long paddle and detailed recon trip we ended up in bull bay...we saw alot of fish today but a hard sell on a twitch bait..staying with the plan we cruised along and rounded a corner to find 8 to 15 tailing redfish in the shallow...man thats pretty...I know that men are not supposed to use those kinds of words when talking about anything other than his wife ...but man thats pretty....I shoved in my stake out anchor and slipped from the kayak to foot power, working my way closer and closer to the feeding school...they where not cooperating and moving ever so slowly away from me....I worked my way into postioin on the upwind side of the school and made a super long cast using my favorite surf casting cast....it is kind of like a cross between an old lady chasing a bee with a broom and a jai alai player going in for the kill...not pretty (like my wife) but very effective .....the cast shot well past the school of feeding redfish still heads down chasing crabs and what not and landed 30 yards beyond them...I worked my lure back to the school so as to intercept thier path....I worked the lure right in front of the lead fish and to my suprise as if cued all the tails dissapeared...I thought Damn they spooked...I twitched the plug two more times and almost had the rod pulled from my hands...the drag signing as loud as myself. I fought the fish a short while and hand landed this south Florida beauty...what fun!
