23.0" / 8.2 lb. Black Drum caught by Chris DeMartine fishing on Wednesday November 28, 2001 at 20:00 3.71 km from Osprey in Sarasota County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a Live Jumbo Shrimp on 1/2 ounce slip sinker rig a Shrimp

I had one even bigger than this that got away; I had to swim after it. There was a group of guys yelling at me "you idiot -- what are you doing!", and another group on the other side of the bay screeming --- "Go for it!".

Fortunately, I caught this one afterwards... to ease the pain of the one that got away. I was only using 10lb. test.

This is the second story on Hooked-in of someone swimming after a fish. See Dwight Aspinwall's story. That's dedication!
