22.0 lb. Red Drum caught by Cedric Cheek fishing in Florida on 09/05/08
38.0" / 22.0 lb. Red Drum caught by Cedric Cheek fishing on Friday September 05, 2008 at 15:06 11.43 km from Apalachicola in Franklin County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a 5 inch mullet a Minnow

Using heavy surf rigs (NC Style rigs), we fished surf near appalachicola Fl.. Some days we had no bites at all other days when surf was rough, we caught a lot of fish. This day we fish w/ 4-5 inch mullet in a jetty, I nearly lost the rod when the red hit. The rod ripped out of the sand spike onto the beach, and into the surf. I dove for the butt of the rod after running for several yard on the beach. I was lucky and managed to hold on, and beach the fish. We caught several more bulls that day, bu this one was the most fun.
