53.0 lb. Red Drum caught by Capt Dave Sipler's Sport Fishing fishing on Monday August 25, 2008 at 09:13 4.34 km from Jacksonville in Duval County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a Momma Natures lure.....1/2 a Croaker

After Tropical Storm Faye. That dropped 19-22 Inches of rain over N.E. Florida and created mass Flooding.

So I said to buddy Rob, let's go......the freshwater fluch has to be tremendous in the river so off to the end of the St. Johns River Inlets south Jetty Tip we went.

With dead shrimp we pounded the keeper Croakers, but I caught a small one wacked it in half and cast it out into the current with a 4 oz. bank sinker on a larger Rod.

5 minutes later it doubled over.....thougt it was a Nurse shark.

Turned out to be my largest Redfish yet (personal)
at a whopping 53 pounds.

I've had customers catch multiple 50 pounders before, but of course their Guide hasn't......till now.
