7.0 lb. Red Drum caught by Jason  Sloan fishing in Florida on 12/28/07
26.0" / 7.0 lb. Red Drum caught by Jason Sloan fishing on Friday December 28, 2007 at 13:30 6.06 km from Boca Grande in Lee County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a Slime Green Gulp Jig, with Red Jighead 1/4 oz a Grub

The morning started out a lil rough, there was a thick fog, and a few sandbars later I hooked up into a mean redfish, he gave me two quick runs and then my hooked popped out. After countless hours of ridicule by my fishin buddies about "Not setting the hook properly" and "Aww man that was the one man, that was the one!" I decided to sit back and spectate.

After a few beers, and some more ridicule I notice nobody else is catching anything, and we are surrounded by tailing reds. I decided to stray away from the lures they were using and pick out my own. I looked for the ugliest lure in the bag, rigged on red 1/4 oz jighead and slammed this bad mutha! My buddies sat back in amazement as they couldn't believe that ugly thing enticed this red. Was a great day, and although I'd love to tell you guys where, I can only give you a vicinity of the area as shown on the map. Hey cmon.. My Captain would kill me!

Great story! Just goes to show you gotta keep trying new stuff (even though it can get expensive ;-). Must have felt good to show up your buddies after all that harassment. Haha.
